3 months of this little guy



This little guy is 3 months old today!!! Our love for him gets stronger and stronger as the days and weeks go by...and my oh my how they are going by too fast!!!

Jackson....You are now 14 lbs 3 oz...and a whopping 23 1/2 inches long. You love to eat...but not from a bottle very well. You eat best by nursing (which makes me feel so happy that you need me so much =) I just know that one day you won't need me as much as you do right now so I cherish every moment we have together. I am so happy that GOD chose me to be your mommy!!!







Here is a comparison picture of Matthew and Jackson both when they were 3 months old.



Below are some pictures I took on Saturday evening of my two sweet boys....I can't believe how much I am blessed to be the mommy to two wonderful boys!!! I'm so lucky!!!

Jack's Patty Day

I realized that I never got ANY pictures of Matthew and his Mom's Lucky Charm St. Patty's shirt. He just might have to wear that shirt again. In fact, I might have to get both boys in the Patty's Day attire again just to get some of them together.

Here is my little man showing his serious side.


I can't get over how big his is getting already. He is a huge joy in our lives and now I can hardly remember not having him around.


A close up of that sweet little face...I think he is looking more and more like me =)


NOOOO!!!! Not the car seat!!!!



Here is Matthew and Jackson side by side on their 1st St. Patrick's Day!!! Now they are starting to look A LOT different to me.


I am so blessed =)

A Date and a Baptism

Being a mom to 2 children so close in age....I have found that at times I want to pull my hair out and run screaming. It seems like every time I sit down to eat, Jackson starts crying as soon as I put the fork to my mouth. It is VERY frustrating so when we had the opportunity to visit Naples this weekend for Jackson's baptism we decided to dump...er...I mean leave the kids with Opa and Mimi while Seth and I had a nice dinner out.

Matthew was and is IN LOVE with his Opa and Mimi. Jackson seemed to be confused about where his mommy and daddy went....but he handled himself just fine.







After spending Saturday shopping til we dropped we had Jackson's baptism today.

Here are some pictures of our little guy =)











All in all, the boys behaved themselves very well this weekend. I am so proud of them!!!

Have a good evening!!!

Focusing Jackson

So...right around 3 or 4 months with Matthew I remember he decided to stop eating without a huge struggle. I still don't know if it was because he was sick with the reflux or just distracted and sitting around nursing for 30 minutes was boring to him.

I am prepared with Jackson!!! I found on Etsy the cutest nursing necklaces from AikoArt





I really hope that it helps Jackson focus on eating. I can already tell that he is getting more distracting at feeding time. I can't wait until I get them and let Jackson try them out!!!

Jackson is now wearing 3-6 month clothing so I don't think he is hurting with his weight but I like to be proactive and knowing what happened with Matthew...I want to do everything in my power to keep that from happening to Jackson. We have got to keep him moving in the right direction.

Here are some pictures of Jackson showing he can do a push up!!











The last picture is him sporting his 3-6 month wardrobe!!!

This weekend is Jackson's baptism....I can't wait to share pictures with everyone!!!

Have a good night =)
