Weekend with Grandma

This past week my mom came to visit from Seattle. She doesn't get to see Jackson often so it is a real treat when she visits. The last time she was here was in Nov and Jack was barely sitting up, now he is practically walking. It is amazing how much they change in such a short time.

Anyways, back to the week. We had a great time. We went shopping, and out to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory where Jackson got a kick out of throwing everything on the floor. The poor waiter just keep walking by and picking things up. . .it was kind of funny actually. We made fish and chips which is my mom's specialty and I even got her to play walleyball over at the Stoker's a few times. I think she was pretty soar but it was a great workout and lots of fun. Then the last day she was here we took pictures around our apartment complex. It is so nice to have an extra person to help me take pictures of Jack because he is a mover now and it is hard to keep him in one spot looking at me. Jack was a little afraid of her at first, he cried all the way home from the airport and refused to look at her. But once we got home he warmed up to her and I think he was pretty sad when she left because he kept going up to the porch door and looking for her. The first morning she was here Jack woke up and just stood in his crib looking at her. My mom said she woke up because she could feel his little eyes stairing at her. I think he was confused by the fact that someone was sleeping in his room. We had a great time and I was sad to see her go but hopefully we will be able to visit this summer and see her again soon.

I'm so glad your mom got to come visit! It is so hard to be far away from them, but then makes these trips so much more special.
