Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?

Oh my little Jakson, could you please stop growing up so fast?!

My boy is ALL boy. all he wants to do is be outside, get dirty and play in some water. a couple of weeks ago Josh and Robby built a railing to go around our porch. i love it. i can now put all of jakson's outdoor toys on the porch and not have to worry about him getting into something in the backyard. He now has his sprinkler, pool, cars and balls all on the backporch and i can lock him in. he is happy and i am happy :)
jakson is getting smarter by the day...

-he is getting to know who people are and can point to them.

-he can point to his nose, belly button and ears..yay!

-the other day my mom had him trying to moo like a cow. hahah, it was too funny.

-the other morning i was toasting bread in the toaster and when it popped up Jakson pointed at it and said, "uh oh!" it was so cute!

-he is now obsessed with books. I will trade out the books he has downstairs for books on his book shelf bc we end up reading the same book over and over and is a cute picture i took of my boys last night while reading Jakson's current favorite, Mr. Brown can Moo! Can you?
Makes me one proud momma :)

Happy Easter!

Jakson had an awesome, non-stop Easter weekend! I won't bore you with words but I will show you some of my favorite pictures from the weekend :)

Saturday morning we woke up and headed to the Cedarcrest egg hunt. Jakson was too funny. He would pick up an egg, put it in his basket, take it back out and throw it like a ball. That didn't come as a shock to us at all.

Jakson and daddy getting ready to hunt some eggs..

A little pep talk from daddy...


he is wearing a pair of shorts i made for him (:

Easter morning. wearing a jon-jon that i made :) i don't ever dress him like this but i had to on Easter. he is so handsome just like his daddy!
After a wonderful church service we headed to my parents house with the whole gernatt gang. yup, that is a lot of gernatt's. We had SOO much fun. We ate way too much, did an egg hunt and got to spend quality time with family.

I am one blessed momma. i love all three of my boys!

Poor Jaks...sorry kid, you are stuck with us :)

Jakson thought he would rather play with sticks than pick up eggs! He did get some eggs and he got a prize egg for his piggy bank :)

Here is a picture of my whole family. all i can think of when i look at this picture is how blessed we are to be so close. i am thankful for every single one of them!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter,

lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

Yesterday we got to go to the zoo with mimi and jakson's cousins. the kids had a blast and so did all of the momma's :) i love that jakson is so close with his cousins. my sister in law tonya is due any day now and we tried to do enough walking to make her go into labor but no luck :( here is a little picture overload from the zoo.

Henry update ~
i went in today for my 35 weeks appt.

Blood pressure-- high :( boooo. this is exactly when it started going up during my pregnancy with jakson. she said i will probably have to start coming in twice a week and i'm not on bed rest but was told to tell the hubby that he has to help me out as much as he can with the little guy and around the house.

Henry's positioning-- she thought he was transverse again but after getting his heart rate and feeling around at where she thinks his body is, she thinks that he is positioned all funky just like jakson was positioned. head down, with his feet sticking straight out. next week they will most likely do an ultrasound to make sure of this but i hope she is right!

my sleep has been horrible recently. i feel like i have pregnancy insomnia. i will be SO tired but just can't sleep. she suggested i take tylonol PM before heading to bed so we will see how that works out. i am hoping for some sleep since VERY soon i wiill be VERY sleep deprived.

Here is a little comparison of my two pregnancies...

35 weeks along with Jakson...

35 weeks along with Henry...

i can't believe the countdown is now at 31 days..ahhhhhh :)

Our sweet little Jakson Man :)

so at this point i am pretty much counting down the days until Henry arrives.(46 days). i can't wait to finally meet him, kiss him and hold his precious little body in my arms.

but i can tell you that i am getting a little sad that jakson will no longer be our one and only. don't get me wrong, i know he is going to love having a little brother to play with and beat up on but it is a known fact that there will be two little men in my life taking all of my attention.
josh and i are really enjoying this sweet time with our first born. last night we took a ride in the jeep around town and i know jakson just loved the one on one time with us. i try and take him to a park a few times a week where just him and i can bond and have fun. i am pretty sure he has no clue what is coming for him. but i know with all of my heart that he is going to love his little bro, Henry Tate:)

alright, that is all for now. i gotta get ready for some pretty awesome guests coming tonight to help me with Henry's room. i can. not. WAIT to get that done and enjoy this sweet time with some amazing friends. have a wonderful weekend. i will post on the room next week!
