A little sunshine on this rainy day

Yesterday was the most perfect weather EVER! It got up to 68 degrees here and felt AH-mazing. After naptime we decided to head to the park and let little man get some of his energy out.

Jakson's first hair-cut!!

The mullet/rat tail is officially gone :)

My mom and I took Jakson up to Pigtails and Crewcuts and got his little hair chopped off yesterday. The lady did an awesome job of distracting Jakson and keeping him happy. Plus, he loved sitting in the little helicopter while getting his hair cut.

i was so proud of my big boy. and WOW, does he look big now!!

playing in the waiting area before it was his turn. Plus, you know i had to get one more picture of the mullet before it went bye bye ;)

getting him warmed up to the idea
<span class=

"um, mommy, what is going on?!"

when all else fails...use goldfish :)

<span class=

"uh, lady, what are you doing to me?!"
<span class=

ahh, so handsome :)
<span class=

He did so great. I was so happy that my mom was able to come with me. She took all of the pictures while i helped try and keep the little guy happy! i love my big boy!!

No, i did not keep the hair. I've always had issues with hair that is not attached to a the idea of keeping a bag of hair just didn't sit well with me. The pictures are enough!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I am going to a women's conference with my sisters and momma. I am so excited and can't wait to see what the Lord does there!

The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
He refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
Psalm 23:1-3

rain, rain go away!

jakson's face explains just how we feel about this cold and rainy weather. And how we are ready for daddy to come back home!

oh frank..he could sleep all day if i let him.

someone was not wanting to look at the camera!

jakson wanted to help mommy out with the chores :)

exploring the yard after all of the rain

i could not get the kid to look at the camera today!

hah, love this.

Tomorrow jaks is going to play at Mimi and Pop's house with most of his cousins while this momma gets her glucose test done. No waffles with extra syrup for me in the morning :) i am looking forward to hearing Henry's heartbeat though!

Little Jakson man at 14 months!

I did a monthly update for jakson up to 1 year but haven't done one since then! So here are some things that our crazy little booger is up to at 14 months...
He weighs around 23 lbs.

He is always running around like a crazy man looking for something to get in to a new adventure :)
Yup, he loves getting into the diaper bag and my wallet

His vocabulary consists of hey, "bah bah"~bye-bye, ma ma, da da, mimi, "pah"~pop, "bay bay"~baby, "dah"~dog(his favorite), "hah"~hot, no. --i might be missing some but i think i got it all.

He has 6 teeth.

He has started touching my belly and saying "bay bay". of course he really has no clue what he is doing but is so cute and melts my heart everytime :)

He is such a creeper, haha. he stares at everyone he sees. some people love it but some people get is very funny.

He loves to put on daddy's hats and run around the house.

He loves to pull all of the toilet paper off of the roll and go through every trashcan that he can get his little hands on.

He LOVES the dogs. he hits pets them and says "dah"(dog) all of the time.

He LOVES phones. if he sees a phone, he just has to have it! He will pitch a fit until he gets his way. josh got me an otter box for my iphone so it is more protected now!

He still likes the car and his carseat, thank goodness. we drive way too much so we would both be miserable if he didn't like it!


He is a biter...unfortuately. We are trying to break him of this but it is just him right now. operation vinegar has begun, we will see if it works since popping his mouth doesn't seem to do a thing :/

He likes to test us. when we say "no", he has to try it just one more time. oh how i love that little stinker. then he make this face when he knows you are serious...

He loves his play group. We have started a play group with some women from my bible study and their kids. it is so nice to chat with other mommies who share similar interests and let jakson run and around and get some energy out! We both get a lot out of that time.

He likes to eat crayons color.

He loves to be held. gives me quite the arm workout during the day.


He loves the vacuum cleaner. He chases it and loves it when i chase him with it!

His eating is changing a little bit. He has started to hate broccoli and mac and cheese?! crazy kid! He also isn't quite the eater he used to be. Sometimes he will eat a lot and sometimes he just wants a couple of bites.

Eating out is almost impossible these days. All he wants to do is eat a few bites and then get down to run around. makes for very short restaurant visits.

He will be getting his first haircut this week. the rat tail has got to go :)
