Bath time!! He LOVES baths now. He use to HATE them, but we figured out how to keep him warm so he is ALL about it now. I bathe him every other day now due to his little rash and he smells SO good when we are finished.

He did so well at church. The loud music didn't bother him, but the quietness did a little. When the music stopped to pray he fussed a little, but fell right back asleep when the music started back. To be on the safe side we took him in the room right off the sanctuary when Chip started preaching. We hung out in there with 2 other families with babies, a new experience.Aunt Anna's home!!!! We are so glad she is back and finally got to meet her little nephew! He even woke up for her at the airport.She had a great experience in India, but we sure are glad she is home.
This was the first time she held him!

Look at that smile!!
I had to post a pic of Jackson and to prove I existed. I am always the one behind the camera so I had to get a pic of the little man and me to prove to him I was around when he's older.

We went for Jackson's first walk on Monday and he loved it! It was warm outside and the vibration of the stroller put him right to sleep. You'll notice the "net" over his car seat, well that is his homemade mosquito net. I have not been taking him walking with me because I was afraid misquotes would bite him, so Gran made this net so I can take him with me to walk in the evenings. Mommy has to get back in shape!!
I discovered today that Jackson likes Grey's Anatomy! Lifetime plays Grey's and Desperate Housewives for hours each day and I leave it on as I am doing things around the house and taking care of Jackson. I put him in his bouncer during his awake time this afternoon and no matter which way I turned his bouncer his head turned to the TV. I don't think he can see that far, I think he was just following the sound, but it is funny that he looked so into the surgeries they were doing. I told him it was great he was showing an interest in surgery, but he could grow up to be whatever he wanted and did not have to be a doctor like his dad as long as he was respectful of other people and honest. I was telling Matt about it when he got home and Matt said the SAME exact thing, but he also added he had to be a republican. How could I have forgotten about that? I am going to blame it on lack of sleep. Lastly we have a funny man on our hands. Matt was strapping Jackson in his car seat to go for a walk last night and he gets so content nothing bothers him. Matt tilted the seat up to look at the back and Jackson could have cared less. He had the funniest in a comma look on his face.

In true big boy fashion he only woke up once again last night at 3:30!!! Now if I can get him to sleep until 5:00 we will be in business, but I am not complaining and I am so happy with how far he has come.
Gran and Paw came down for a day to hang out with us while Matt was on call. We like having the company! And this weekend we will have even more company, Munchkin and Big R are coming down for Munchkin's birthday, Gran Dan and She-She will be here for the day, Kevin and Kayla Hatcher are coming to meet Jackson, and so is his Auntie Quanie!! We are excited to see everyone. Jackson is a social butterfly!

Milestones he has made:
* Still working on holding his head up for extended periods of time
* Only waking up once a night (Praise God!!)
* Not crying during diaper changes any more
* Not crying during bathes any more
* Eating like there is no tomorrow. He eats 5 oz at a time and I am having to supplement him with formula too because I have not caught up with him. He is also taking 1 tablespoon of cereal with his night bottle and 1/2 a tablespoon of cereal with a bottle during the day. It is a lot of work to fill this kid up!
*He's still not a huge fan of his swing or bouncer, but he is coming around. He will sit in his bouncer on the table while we eat dinner.
Look how big he is getting!! His head goes up to the top of his swing head rest! And look at how fat his little face is!

He is trying to be a big boy too fast for me. He holds his head up and rolled over in bed the other night. He needs to slow it down or he will be crawling next month!
I took these pictures yesterday on his 2 week birthday
Lastly, poor Matt has been working and studying so hard in June he is worn slap out. He gets 4 days off a month and took them all when Jackson was born so he is ready for July. Monday is his first day off and I cannot wait and I know he can't either. He can sleep late and play with Jackson all day long. We are so grateful he is working so hard!
