What Mommy and Daddy Have Been Doing!!

Mommy and Daddy have been really busy.  Daddy has been working lots and lots so I really get to spend lots of time with him on the weekend (donut shop and playing outside!).  We are thankful he works though, so Mommy can stay home with Jackson and I!!!!  Mommy has been busy with Bible study, High School girls, working here and there on projects, AWANA and keeping up the house after Jackson and I play and make messes daily!!!  In the meantime, Mommy and Daddy have had some "fun" too!

This wasn't so fun for Mommy...but she took a picture anyways.  Jackson was throwing a fit and decided he would fling his head back as hard as he could.  He did and didn't know Mommy was right behind him.  He hurt her cheek bone and gave her a little black eye.  Mommy said it was a good thing it was her and not Daddy he hit because it probably would have broken daddy's cheekbone again after his surgery!

For Valentine's Day, Daddy took Mommy to a Mexican Restaurant by Staples Center called Rosa Mexicana.  They said they had really good food!!!!!  After the dinner, they went to a Laker Game!!!  Thankfully, the Lakers won and they had a good Valentine's evening! 

Mommy goes to Biblestudy every Wednesday while Jackson and I go to our classes and learn about Jesus too.  Here is Miss Michelle (Weston's mommy)and Miss Deidre (Madison's mommy) with Mommy.  Madison's family just moved to Virginia so she took a picture with her friends.  I will miss Madison but her Daddy is a pastor of a church in Virginia God is going to use their family to preach the good news to those who need to hear it!!!!

On one of our park days, Mommy and another Mommy (Vanessa) saw this "older boy" and kept staring at him.  Apparently, this "older boy" was Justin Bieber!  Mommy told me he is one of the most popular rock singers at this time.  He was there with his family and took a picture with Jackson and Colt.  Jackson was scared of him, I guess.  =)  Mommy couldn't believe she saw him!!! She's silly....  

Here's Justin Bieber again.  It's for real. 

Another day, Mommy took some High School girls to play frisbee golf and then a couple to get pedicures. Here's some of the High School girls!

Finally, I drew this picture of Mommy and Daddy.  They love each other and I love them too.  I even drew hearts around them!!!!

Jackson's Adventures!

You saw what I've done this last month...but what about my brother???!?!?!

Jackson LOOOOOOOVVVES singing on this stool!  It's one of his favorite things to do.  For this picture, we were watching the Broncos in the playoffs...but Daddy said they didn't do good.  So, Jackson thought he'd sing instead.

 Daddy taught Jackson how to do "touchdown!"

Jackson also like trying to type on Mommy's computer and has figured out how to play with Mommy's phone and Daddy's iPad....I taught him how to do it. =)

Jackson LOVES chocolate...just like I do!

Here's one of the days we were playing "Pirates".  This time Jackson was the pirate and I was a good guy.

On January 26th, Mommy and Daddy dedicated Jackson at church.  This means they take him to the front and acknowledge their intentions and desire to love him the wait God desires Mommy and Daddy's to and they will teach him about God and what it means to love God and obey God.  They did it for me too when I was a baby.

 Here's Jackson on the pew at church...right before he went in front of everyone!

Jackson liked to eat and eat and eat. AND make a MESS, MESS, MESS!

This month he started going potty in his little toilet!!!!!  I showed him how to do it and he's done it lots of times.  When I was little, this age was when Mommy started potty training me.  She said maybe it's time to start training Jackson!  He also went poo-poo in the potty!  Good job Jackson!!!!

 This month Jackson also learned how to climb out of his crib.  Probably because he sees me climbing on everything.  Mommy and Daddy decided to change his bed from a crib to a big-boy bed (a little earlier than wanted).  Jackson has had lots and lots of spanks because he gets out of his bed lots and lots of times.  In this picture, he decided to climb in bed with me.  He's getting better but Mommy says he's a little rebel (whatever that means!).  Lots and lots of discipline but he is learning!!!!!

More brother love....

 Whenever we have our play dates on Thursdays with my friends, Jackson has his friends come too.  Here's Jackson at Scooter's Jungle Playhouse!

Silly, silly bathtime....

Just imitating me....

Here's Jackson climbing up the ladder at the park.  I taught him how to do it.

He loves me...

Jackson likes to exercise with Mommy when she does a workout video.  Here's Jackson about to stretch with Mommy!  I like to do it too....but get tired quickly!

Jackson makes lots of messes.  I usually help him clean up with a towel but this time Mommy had to help.  Guess he wanted more fruit loops. 

My little brother gets really pink cheeks when he plays hard or gets hot.  I think he has Daddy's skin.  Mommy thought this picture was cute so she said to put it on here.  This was after a hot, sunny day at the park at the end of February!! 85 degrees!!!!

That's a little bit about my brother!  More to come later!!!!!

What I've Been Up to These Days...

January and February have flown by because I've been having so much fun!  Here are some pics to show what I've been up to lately!

Mommy and I made our first chocolate banana popsicles from the popsicle maker daddy got mommy for Christmas!  Mmm!!! I loved it!  I can't wait to make more!!

I've been playing lots of games and conquering puzzles lately.  Yes, I can even do 100 piece puzzles!!!!  I'm getting pretty good at them....I also like to beat Mommy and Daddy at boardgames like this one and Sword-fighting on the Wii!!! I'm a pro.

We made funnel cakes too!!!  Ate mine in about 10 seconds. =)

Love going to the park!!  I've started showing Jackson the to climb UP slides, up and DOWN ladders and go on the monkey bars!  Mommy gets scared at times, but I make sure to help him! (not always!!!)

Every Thursday we've been hanging out with my friends!  Mommy gets to spend time with her friends too.  We've gone to different parks in Los Angeles, the Zoo and Scooters Jungle playhouse so far!  I LOVE it!  Here's my friends and I at the Zoo!

Here's an orangutan and her baby!

 It was a good day at the Zoo!  The Hippo was even smiling for pictures!

Here's my good buddy, Hudson. =)  We have lots and lots of fun together!

 We also went to the Library for the first time!  I've started to learn the sounds of letters so I like reading.  Jackson does too!

Aunt Tera and Uncle Aaron got me a pirate canvas for Christmas.  Here's my first finished painting. (Mommy only helped a little bit!)  I LOVE pirates....Jackson and I play pirates every day.  I'm even having a Pirate Party for my birthday next month! 

We've played and played outside....We even caught our first lizard!!!!! Then we let it go the next day so it could eat and drink....

AWANA is going well!  I've memorized over 15 bible verses!  Here's my friend Austin.  We like to play together at AWANA!

No, it's not "crazy hair day"...This is what my hair is like when Mommy doesn't take me to get a haircut!  I did my hair all by myself this day!!!!  Mommy got it cut the next day so it's not as fun styling.  She has to help!

 Mommy was gone one day so we had Kari babysit.  She's one of my favorite babysitters.  Mommy enjoys her too!!!  Thanks, Kari!

 Brother love...I love him lots!

More park time...Mommy says I'm getting bigger.  I know I'm definitely taller!  She said she misses me as a little boy but I LOVE to get big.  I'm taller than a lot of them and I even have size 8 shoes now and tell all my friends!

 Here's a picture that I drew of Mommy.  Guess Mommy wears too much mascara!! =)

 I've been practicing baseball so I can be on a team this year.  I can hit the ball REALLY far and daddy is really proud of me.  He's been showing me how to do it the right way.  I hit right handed right now so daddy is hoping I become a switch hitter since I do everything else left-handed!

 Frequent trips to the store have to be somewhat entertaining without someone falling out of the cart!!!!

Mommy LOVES this picture.  I'm big.  Jackson wants to be big like me.  Maybe one day.

I've been riding my bike a lot on walks now!  On this trip, I even rode to the bike path and back!  It was about a 2 mi loop..... I did it all except the big hill back up to our house so Mommy can to carry my bike up and I walked.  I love riding my new bike from Santa!

When Kari babysits, she knows how to play the guitar.  This time, she tried to teach me songs.  I now call this my own guitar (even though it's Mommy's).  Hopefully Kari or Mommy will teach me some songs soon because I love to sing!

 Finally, Mommy said she wanted to start giving me some daily chores.  One of them is feeding Sully.  I decided it would be good to show Jackson how to feed him in case I forget.  Glad my brother can help me!

Hopefully, you've enjoyed a taste of my life the last month!  Mommy says we've been busy but it's lots of fun stuff!!!!! I don't know why Mommy gets tired by the time I go to bed!!!!???  All this time, Daddy is busy at work so he's tired too!
