We have finally caught Jackson rolling on tape. Wes got it yesterday! He has also started rolling from his back to tummy to back again, but I still haven't seen it yet :-( Now we need to get him to start rolling from tummy to back again in his crib. He rolled over the other night and got stuck...and started crying...at 2 in the morning...then woke up when we rolled him back over...wouldn't go back to sleep until he had a bottle...you see where I'm going with this! So, without further ado - Here's Jackson!

Hanging out playing on his blanket...
Jackson still loves to be in his car seat and ride in the car. We hope it stays that way!
Now he's grabbing his rattle and fish that are hanging down instead of just batting at them...and trying unsuccessfully so far to get them in his mouth :)

He just needs the remote - just like a man...haha

Jackson sitting on the couch all by himself!
He's just starting to play with a few toys that he has, but he'd much rather put it in his mouth then "play" with it, haha.
This was the trampoline around 0800 this morning, with mainly ice on it...
Here's the trampoline around noon with a nice thick layer of snow!

Some of Jackson's sweetest time is in the morning, so I love the mornings I get to go in late. Especially when Jackson has a great night like he did last night - he slept from 7:45 last night until 6:30 this morning - woohoo!! Sleep for everyone!! Hopefully he will keep this up:-) He has also figured out how to "motorboat" and kept me highly entertained yesterday while he did it (minus the multiple times he spit on me when he was doing it). I'm not sure where he picked that up because we haven't done it, but nonetheless, it's hilarious. Jackson had his first night away from the house without us to put him to sleep this weekend and he cried a lot. I felt bad for Wes' parents because he cried for about 30 minutes when they put him down, but it'll get better I'm sure. We were at a baby shower for Toni, Mark, and baby Cooper. Only a few more weeks and he'll be here and Jackson will have a new little friend - we can't wait. Sunday brought a wedding shower for another friend from high school, Jennifer. Congrats again, Jenn - we'll see you in April :-)
Halfway there - hopefully Jackson's eyes are going to stay blue!!!

Jackson is getting to be such a fun little guy! He loves to smile and he's even starting to laugh, but only a couple of times so far - but it's so adorable :-D The latest fun game to play is copycat. If you smile, he smiles back. If you open your mouth, he'll open his. And if you stick our your tongue...well, sometimes he'll stick his out, but he'll always smile at you, lol. He starts move his tongue all around, and about 1/4 of the time, it actually makes it all the way out. Probably not the best habit to teach your child, but right now it's just really cute! Other than that, we're all doing great. Jackson continues to sleep through the night, although a couple of nights a week he wakes up for an early morning bottle (hence the reason I'm posting at 0440, lol). But since we lay him down around 7, we can't complain. Even when he takes an early bottle, he lays right back down and sleeps until 0700 or 0730. A special hello to everyone in Alaska - one day we'll make it up there!
How you doin'??
Sometimes the hard part of capturing the smile is holding his hands out of his mouth ;-)
The elusive tongue caught. You don't know how hard that was. Everytime we'd put the camera down and turn it off, he'd stick it out...turn the camera on - well, you get the point, haha.

He can hold his head up for a couple of minutes now when you put him on his tummy. He always props himself up this way on his arms now - right arm tucked and left arm out.
Mmm, my hands taste so good. I'd say his hands spend about 70% of the time in his mouth these days (when he's awake). He'd rather suck on them than his paci.
