Jackson lives on the state line between Alabama and Tennessee. Valentines weekend, he finally made it to Georgia and South Carolina. He loves to be talked to and to "talk" back and will laugh out loud. I think he got a little spoiled on this trip as he was a little insulted when he returned home and someone wasn't holding him all the time! Above, he is cutting those eyes at Jim and sporting the owl outfit I was able to find in the "safe place".
He is about to grow out of this little monster sleeper I got him (size six months). He has big feet and hands like his Dad (and me!)
He loves to coo and talk and is such a good baby. I know that he cries some at home, but he loved being held on this trip and didn't cry much at all! When we were at his house Christmas week, we got to hear him cry a lot when he decided that four ounces of formula was NOT enough...he has since jumped from six ounces to eight. He is at the 90th profile in height, so I think he will be tall like his Dad.
Jim's mother, Louise, was very sick and spent most of the fall in the hospital. When Jackson was born, she was on a respirator in ICU and Jim was with her rather than with me at the hospital for Jackson's birth. This was the first time that she got to see him and hold him. Jim said Jason could not give her anything she enjoyed more than to see that baby. It was a wonderful visit. I look forward to spending a week at the cabin with Jackson in May (it is fine if Jason and Jessica come too). I am sure I will have to work in a visit to see him and go to the Huntsville Botanical Garden before then though. He is definitely a keeper!
I enjoy papercrafting, scrapbooking, photography, travel and sewing. My latest hobby is knitting. I have been married for 37 years to my college sweetheart and we have two grown children, two more children (added through marriage...our children's spouses) a granddaughter and two grandsons. I love to create artwork and share with my friends.
