What Jakson's been up to...

Well first off, for the past few weeks he has been sleeping "like a baby." It has been amazing. If we are home all night he goes to bed at 10:30. If we were in the car coming home from somewhere he goes to bed about 12. He wakes up anywhere from has been amazing!! He is really getting anywhere from 6-8 hours of sleep. His momma is LOVING it!!

Also, his new discovery is sucking his hand...ohh no! He won't take a pasi but he is constantly trying to lift his hand to search for that thumb. He is sucking on his knuckles right now bc he hasn't quite figured out the thumb but he is working on it! Last night on our way home from the super bowl party we had the music off and for about 30 minutes we laughed while we listened to Jakson trying to suck on his hand until he fell asleep. Of course, I don't want him to be a thumb sucker but he won't take a pasi and how do you stop him from sucking on his hand...?!?! Here are a couple of pictures of him trying to get that hand in his mouth.

A couple of weeks ago we went to the zoo with Mimi, Jr and Colton. Jakson slept for most of it but it was a beautiful day and so great to get out. Jr and Colton loved it and it was so sweet watching how excited they would get when they would see the animals. We had a great time and I am so glad that Mimi took us! She even got Jakson an adorable stuffed giraffe for his first trip to the zoo! He loves it :)

We also had Colton's 1st birthday party! I can't believe that sweet boy is already 1! Colton is such a cutie and I have loved watching him grow over the past year. I love living so close to family and being able to be in their lives as they grow up! Colton is such a sweet boy. It is so cute watching him with Jakson. He is very interested and is always wanting to grab and kiss him! It is very entertaining to watch.
Unfortunately Josh wasn't able to make it to the party because he was sick, but we had a great time! Ash and Matthew did a great job throwing his first birthday. Instead of getting presents they raised money for Compassion and raised $500. I thought that was so awesome that they did that and really respect them for that. Here are a few pictures from the party!

This past Saturday Josh and I went to his parents house so they could babysit Jakson for a little while. We hung out for a couple of hours and then Josh and I headed out and did some shopping and ate dinner. It was great to get some alone time with my hubby. I know that is so important every now and then. I miss Jakson every second but I really love getting to focus just on Josh and that time with one another. It was wonderful getting to spend some time with the Burfitts and Jakson had so much fun with them :) He didn't really take a bottle well while I was gone so that makes me a little nervous. I think I should start giving him bottles more often so he will take them with no problems. Here are some pictures that my mother-in-law took.
