Here is a post that I have forgotten to post. ENJOY!

Jackson is learning new words everyday. His new word is bubble. He loves bubbles! He walks around looking for his bottle of bubbles and when he finds them he points and says, "bubble!"

At the beginning I was singing "Old Mac Donald Had a Farm" because Jackson has down the "ei ei"...and he just added the O today! But of course I couldn't get it on camera!

Wilmington Morning

If you didn't know Jackson and I tagged along with Andrew to Wilmington, NC for business. We were here back in February and had so much fun we had to come back. Jackson did very well on the 7 + hour drive. He took a nice 3 hour nap and was pleasant the rest of the trip thanks to the Wiggles:)

We arrived around 7pm and checked into our hotel and ate at a local pizza place that was awesome! After dinner we took a quick drive to the beach and once we got there we HAD to get out and let Jackson walk on the beach. Of course he grabbed a fist full of sand and put it in his mouth but all is good! We came back to the hotel and went to bed.

This morning Jackson thoroughly enjoyed the continental breakfast. He ate a strawberry yogurt, a blueberry muffin, 1/2 of a carton of milk, and a few Fruit Loops.

He had so much fun and I was so happy because if you didn't know our little man is still "on" the bottle. He has two bottles a day and this is the trip we are breaking the habit that has formed. So far so good. He hasn't asked for one since we have been here...maybe it is because he gets to have milk in a neat carton and drinks with a straw! I will definitely post more pictures as we have more adventures. I am kind of bummed since there is 40-50% chance of rain the entire time we are here but that won't stop us from exploring around! Stay Tuned!

4th of July

We had so much fun on the 4th of July! We ate an early lunch with my mom and dad and Sarah and Patrick. After that we went to the Drake Stadium to see the fireworks. Jackson got to ride in style in his red wagon, he really had it made. I was really worried how Jackson was going to react but he had a blast! He loved all the people and running around the track. Once the fireworks started he just sat in Daddy's lap and watching the fireworks. We had so much fun!

Also this 4th of July weekend Jackson started liking watermelon! He had fun squishing it and feeding it to Daddy!
