Home Sweet Home... All the time

Sorry for the lack of blog... it's just that I have seriously been doing the same thing over and over again for the last 8 weeks, sitting at home or at Tyler's house, just being lazy and taking care of the little bundle of joy/shit, jackson. haha. Pretty much this blog will just be an update on him and how Tyler and I have been handling the new life as parents. Jackson is doing amazing. He just had his 2 month checkup the other day... he is officially 11 pounds 7 ounces. He is growing SO FAST! It's incredible and happening so quickly. I know that he won't be my little boy forever, so I'm really cherishing every moment with him. I do my best being patient with him and I really feel that helps calm him down and not be mad at me if it takes me a while to figure out whats wrong with him. The best thing that has happened lately is that he learned to smile and somewhat giggle. Its the most beautiful thing in the entire world. :) It's also the hardest thing to get a picture of because he is so curious what the camera is and stops smiling to focus. He LOVES his swing and spends a lot of time in that and in his boppy when he's not being loved to death by his daddy, grandmas, or aunts.

Tyler and I have been doing great. You'd think that having a baby would make a relationship hard or whatnot, but honestly... right now we have been doing the best we ever have. He just got a job working with Neil at Shelf Reliance down in Lindon. I have been kinda looking for jobs, but we haven't really figured out where Jackson would go for the day. We have plenty of short time babysitters available, but we don't know about long term. The three of us spend a lot time together, when Tyler isn't working. We are usually relaxing or spending time with the families. We also spend a lot time feeding Jackson... it's his favorite thing in the entire world. haha even when he isn't all that hungry, it's sometimes THE only thing to calm him down. That and he sometimes doesn't like a binky so likes to use the mommy-binky.

Hmm... I tried talking about me and Tyler and still went to talking about Jackson. What can I say? He is our life now. No complaints at all though. He does get in grumpy moods that are kinda hard on the ears, but seeing him happy and smiling is so worth everything. I seriously couldn't be happier... scratch that...I'll be the happiest when Jackson starts sleeping through the entire night. Speaking of which... I'll end with baby "stats"
