I'm so thankful for so much in my life. Here are a few things I'm thankful for,

my husband,

our son,

all of our family,

and our friends.

I'm also really thankful to have a warm home during a cold, already snowing, winter.

Jackson was a little messy eating his yogurt the other day.

We woke up with some snow on the ground today. I bundled Jackson all up and we went outside.

The other night we made cookies. Jackson can say cookie, but he still signs it at the same time too. He signs it over his mouth, like in this picture.

He loves to watch me mix stuff in the kitchen and now he's starting to want to help more and more. I gave him a bowl and put some water and flour in it. Then added cinnamon and vanilla also as I added them to the cookies. He did a good job of mixing, except he wanted to add his mix to my mix.

old videos

Here are two videos from September that I am just now getting to.

We found a slug and Jackson wouldn't touch it. He would get close to touching it, but then start giggling and say no. It was cute.

He now moves his step stool all over the house to reach things.

more of the new bath toy

Jackson is really into pouring things back and forth, so he loves this toy. The brand of the toy is Yookidoo, here is a link to it at amazon.

new bath toy

It's been a long couple weeks. I'm hoping this week we will be getting back to a regular routine.

Jeff's funeral was beautiful. So many family and friends came together for it, it was amazing. The support we have received and Dan & Jeff's parents have received is soo overwhelming to me, it's more support than I could have ever imagined. It puts tears in my eyes just thinking about it.

Jackson did great through all of this too. He has been more needy/clingy than normal, but it's understandable since I left him with family and a close friend a few times, which is way more than usual.

I got him a new bath toy the other day when my Mom was in town and we went shopping.

Jackson likes it a lot. I have a couple other cute pictures that I'll try to add later.
