Busy New Year

This was such a busy week. My birthday was on Tuesday but we didn't celebrate it today. That happens a lot actually for some reason, and I end up having a week long birthday because it is so spread out. . .which isn't a bad thing. Jackson turned 9 months this week and is more of a handful than ever. He is really on the move, cruising around all the furniture and climbing up on everything. Plus he has moved to only 1 nap each day. . .a long nap, but only one which means more entertainment from mom. Brandon is still looking for a job. The market is so bad right now I don't know if he will find one in our area. He is trying to find something that will give him decent hours and decent pay. So far he has found good hours with bad pay or bad hours with great pay. School was crazy because it is the beginning of a new semester and all the kids were worried about their grades. Live is busy, but that's how I like it.

Also here is Jackson update:
-height 30 inches (95%)
-weight 21lbs (70%)
-favorite food: meatballs and animal crackers
-favorite activity: walking around with dad holding his hands
-favorite way to sleep: on tummy, legs under him, butt in the air
-still sleeps through the night 10pm to 10am
-loves to be tickled and stung by the finger bee
-can play peek-a-boo, clap his hands, and drink through a staw

Healthy and happy!
