Jackson turned 3 this week.  Time has flown so I reminisced this week about the day he was born. I looked back at pictures here  and here and it seemed like a lifetime ago.  I want to do it all over again.  God blessed me greatly and I am forever grateful.  

At 3, this boy is ALL boy.  He loves his puppy, he loves finding worms 
and he loves to climb and jump on things.

This year we got him a train table for his birthday.  He loved it so much. The first thing he said was, "This is like River's"

I asked him what he wanted the theme to be for his birthday this year.  He said WORMS!!!! I said ....if Pinterest has it, I will do it.  And thank you Pinterest.  Other people out there have had worm birthday parties. We did jello worms, dirt cake and a worm dig in the yard.  I made part of the theme the Busytown Worm.  Everyone had a wonderful time watching the kids find slimy worms.  It was a good feeling surrounded by friends and family who mean so much to us. Jackson sure is loved!


Such a Boy

Jackson is 100% Boy and I love it.  This child LOVES pretending.  He will pretend With toys or Without anything at all.  He gives me pretend things and wants us to pretend we are animals like cats, dinosaurs and monkeys.  I love that he has such an amazing imagination.  (oh yes, I am blogging again. We'll see how long it lasts.)
 Enjoy the pics below.
Jackson is growing in so many ways and of course I cannot remember some of the things he says right now.  But he will say the funniest things!  He will say "That's Ginormous"  (from Elf)  or "That's so Bunny"  (F's are B's)  He LOVES to snuggle Mommy at nap or bedtime.  He says, "Nuggle Me Mommy" 
He enjoys playing with his friends here in Cinci.  Adria, Beckett, Patrick, Matthew and Natalie.  And of course his cousins Landon & Carter.
 He has started a tumbling class at the gym.  Busy Bugs.  Its so cute!  I get to interact with him as well.  He does the high (low) beam, tunnels, jumping mats, balance beam and learns all sorts of jumps, kicks and summer-salts, etc.  He is registered for a 2-day preschool this Fall.  I am so excited for him to start.  He loves playing with other kids and is very social already. He already says "There's my School" when we pass it.  AND he says he wants to ride the bus too. He is such a Joy everyday!  We hope and pray for the opportunity for him to have a sibling. I think its time and he would make a wonderful big brother. But God Willing of course.
