Happy 2nd Birthday Jackson!

My baby boy is 2!!! How did this happen??? Today is Jackson's actual birthday, but we celebrated on Saturday at Gymboree with some fun friends. Jackson had a ball (and so did all of the parents and friends!). Here are a couple of pics from the big partay. :)

P.S. Isaiah has a girlfriend! Her name is Sidney Kate and she is my friend Addie's little girl. Sidney is four days older than Isaiah. There are a few pics of them rolling around on the mat at the party. At one point Sidney tried to take her shirt off for Isaiah! :)

Renzi and I tried to think about something special to get Jackson for his birthday this year and I finally came up with a perfect present this past Saturday. Jackson is obsessed with fish, but when he says fish it sounds so funny. He curls his lip to the side (similar to Elvis) and says, "FFFiiisssshhhh." So, Saturday morning we loaded up and went to Petsmart and let him pick out his very own ffissshhhh. He chose a Blue Beta fish ($3.99 SCORE for mom and dad!) and we bought a fish bowl and some food and off we went. On the car ride home Renzi asked me what the over under would be that the fish was alive and I said, "24 hours." He chose the over on that one. Well, as soon as we got home Jackson wanted to hold his fish so I gave him the plastic bowl that the fish came in. He decided right then and there to throw a temper tantrum and threw the bowl on the ground. The bowl busted and the poor fish was wriggling around our laundry room floor without any water. Luckily, dad came to the rescue and saved the fish and he is now alive and well in our kitchen. Jackson has decided to name his fish "Natt Dee Dee," after his two girlfriends Natalie Heskett and my friend Addie (the one who's daughter is Sidney Kate that I mentioned earlier.)

Happy Birthday Jackson James! We love you to the moon and back.
