Beaching It

I know that it has been ages since we've posted anything, but it has been really busy around here. We've been to the beach the past 2 weekends and gotten to see some family along the way. It's been great. I wish that we could be there all the time :) Jackson is still the little beach baby! He just crawls, and now walks, in the sand and goes into the water. Two weekends ago, the water was gorgeous. It was so clear, and becuase of Gustav, there was a flat beach with some pools of water back about 10 yards from the sea, so it was the perfect place for Jackson to play.

Since someone keeps calling us beach bums, I thought I would share how we spend our time when actuall on the beach. We get down near the water and put up the umbrella, set up Jackson's pool, and it's time for fun. We stayed down there for a couple hours each day that weekend. Jackson even has a little tan line, despite the multiple reapplications of sunblock!

Noel Mark came down for a day and it was great to get to see him. We hadn't seen in him in several months, and it will be several more before we get to see him again. We hate that Joanna couldn't come though :(

Last weekend we were down there as Ike blew through the gulf. Friday when we arrived, there were huge waves, but the water level was already retreating. Saturday and Sunday were both gorgeous days. A little windy, and no time in the ocean, but we still enjoyed the pool.

He will "float" on his stomach and put his face in the water, but we can't get him to lie on his back and float that way...we'll just keep working on it!

Aunt Phyllis came down for a long weekend, and it was great to get to see her!!! It was the first time that she got to meet the little man and he just loved her :)

And the Steelers won while we watched them on Sunday night!

Jackson is doing great at his playschool twice a week. Each day they send home a slip and he's been eating all of his lunch and playing the whole time he's there. Since this means he's playing instead of napping for 2 of those hours, he's so exhausted by the time we pick him up. He falls right asleep in the car, then naps for a couple of hours once he gets home. Wes has finished up another quarter of school, so he has a couple of weeks off. We are just trying to get a few things done around the house, then we are off to Auburn for the weekend for the LSU game - War Eagle!

One more thing for those of you who don't know yet - Jackson is going to be a big brother!!! His new brother or sister is due the end of March (I'm 12 weeks right now). I'm finally starting to feel human again - it's been rougher than it was with J. Oh well, I'm sure it will get much better soon :) I'll keep y'all updated after my doctor visits...
