Video of Jackson Singing!

Here is the video of Jackson singing along with his new piano set that AJ and Allison got him. It's amazing because he knew EXACTLY what to do with the microphone!

Happy Turkey Day!

What a fun filled Thanksgiving week we had! We spent Wednesday and Thursday in Clinton with my grandparents and had such a wonderful, relaxing time there. Friday, AJ and Allison came into town and AJ, Alli, Tim, Natalie, Renzi and I all went out for a fabulous dinner at The Ranch and out for a little fun afterwards. Also, on Friday, we put up all of our Christmas decorations and as you can see from the pictures, Jackson was a BIG help with the lights and the tree. Our only mishap was when he grabbed a ball ornament and took a big bite out of it like an apple. I had to explain to him that it was glass and didn't taste yummy like a real apple. 

Saturday we all went over to Tim and Nat's to watch the OU/OSU game and Alli and AJ bought Jackson a piano and a microphone. It is the best present ever. He loves it. I will try to post a video of it soon. SOOO cute to see my little man singing!

We are so thankful for all of our family and friends and thank you all for your love! We love all of you!

Does Anything Stand Out to You in this Picture

Friends, Family, Countrymen - I have a special announcement. Normally, I dictate important events to my mom and she does the typing, but after consulting with Annabelle (pictured left, above) I have decided to type this post myself. Please excuse any misspellings or grammar mistakes. I am only 14.5 months old. Give me some slack.

Examining the above picture, several things may strike you as interesting.

1. I am holding my blackberry. This tool of modern communication is crucial for me to keep in touch with my friends Cali, Caden and Uncle Tim. And of course my grandparents. I take it everywhere I go. So does my Dad.

2. Annabelle and I have formed a very close relationship. She whispers in my ear and sometimes licks my head. I like her.

3. I drink organic white grape juice. It contains 100% fruit juice and no artificial sweeteners.

4. This shirt I got is brand new. I have no idea what it means to be the "big brother."

Would someone please call my cell (my mom may answer) and let me know the implications of being a "big brother"? I'm totally lost here.

It's a bird, it's a's SUPERMAN!

We had so much fun on Halloween this year! Jackson was Superman and boy did he look precious! We took him up and down our street to Trick-or-Treat and he was such a pro. He would walk right up to the houses and bang on the door until someone came out to give him candy. Our next door neighbor gave him a cookie and Jackson plopped right down on the driveway and ate the cookie right then and there. After trick or treating we went to The Greens for dinner and Jackson was the hit of the club!
On another note, so sorry these pictures are not the best quality...I bought a disposable camera since I lost our two digital ones, and then scanned these in....but there is some good news...this weekend we bought a new digital camera online and should get it in in a couple of days. WHOOO HOOO! I promise to take good care of this one..... :)

It's amazing how much they grow!

For those of you who are on myspace, I am sure you have seen "The Incredible Shrinking Chair" pictures that I updated each month of Jackson's first year. It's amazing to see how much he would grow from month to month! I know this is a little late, considering Jackson turned 1 August 31st and is now the ripe old age of 14 months old, but I just thought it would be fun to show you guys the difference in my little man from his one month picture, to his 12 month picture in the chair. Jackson has gone from 5 lbs. 5 oz. and 18.5 inches to 23 lbs. 33.5 inches in just one year! Amazing! Enjoy!
