Swim Fan

We took Jackson swimming for the first time this week. We lathered him up with sunblock 50 and threw him in the pool (just kidding). But he did kick around a bit and even went under the waterfall. It is nice to have Caits and Ashley around to help with the little guy (as well as the rest of the Stoker clan).

He is having a blast being held all the time and getting lots of kisses. One thing I learned from taking him swimming is that pampers diapers are the best! Even when they are water logged.

Next week we visit Washington so see you there.

Confessions of an Arizona Life

CONFESSION! Right now our favorite thing to do is play the new Mario Kart for Nintendo Wii. All I can say is it is addictive. I watch Brandon play and I never get bored. I am sure there are other things we should be doing with our down time, but it is so hot here it is hard to go outside. This week the temperature was between 110-115 degrees everyday. It is definitely summer in Arizona.

2 month check up

Jackson had his 2 month well baby check yesterday. He had to get his vaccination shots and he was so brave. The doctor said that he is doing great. Here are his new measurements:

Weight: 13lbs (85%)
Height: 24.5 inches (95%)

He is such a good boy and very smiley. We were taking a bath the other day and he is getting used to it now and happy. Before he was really scared in his little bath tub. I have also discovered that he loves the hair dryer. I put him in the bathroom with me in the mornings and he is in awe when I turn on the hair dryer. What a funny boy!

Isn't this the cutest frown ever!

I love his big eyes. They are still blue! Yeah!

Peek-a-boo mom

He hates tummy time but he has to do it!

Always looking around. He is very curious.

He is getting chunky, definitely not missing any feedings.

First Entry

Hey everyone, I though this was easier than sending emails every week. I will update it weekly with pictures of us (especially of Jackson) and what we are doing. Hope you like it.

This week Jackson is having his 2 month check up and getting his shots, yikes! He is so loveable. He likes to cuddle with me in the morning which is my favorite time of the day. I can't believe he is over 2 months old already. We had a great time with the hot mammas group this week. We made an imprint of his little feet and went for a walk around the mall with the other moms. It is so hot here now that we can't really walk outside anymore.
