This is the "When Did You Become a Gator" ad I was talking about. It gives me chills every time I see it. I think about being a rebel and everything it means to me.

I hope you enjoyed my goofy blog for the day (I am sure Jackson's PawPaw,Uncle Konnie, Uncle Johhny, and Uncle Kevin enjoyed it until I said "just kidding") Happy Tuesday!

Background on this picture - Prep is red and blue and JA is blue and grey. Prep fans had gotten together and wore all red. So when we sat on the Prep side all wearing blue and grey the Prep fans promptly gave us this sticker and a pom pom. Jackson was getting tired, he had been on sensory overload! Between the fireworks, the outburst of yelling, and the band he was not sure what was going on!

Jackson will go to his first football game tonight! The JA/Prep game. You can't much frattier than that! Or as Unlce Buster would say - "it's the center of the universe." Cellular South is sponsoring the game - Y'all vs Us and we thought it would be fun to take him. He'll probably sleep through the entire thing though. I'll take plenty of pictures.

Now that I figured out how to easily post videos I will post them a lot more. This was taken last Thursday on Jackson's 3 month old birthday. He was so happy and hamming it up. I was glad he kept it up when I turned the video camera on because he usually stops doing what ever he was doing before when I try to video him.

I have been meaning to post this for a while now, but I am just getting around to it. We recorded it Aug 9 and it is crazy to see how much bigger he is now. When we do The Dougie now he laughs and smiles. Please excuse my double chin in the video.

When we got back it was time for PJ's! We have started putting him in his bumpo already to work on his head control! Look how well he does. With those footed PJ's on he looks like a smurf.He looks like a grown up. :(
Last but not least Becca came to visit on Wednesday, I have just not had time to post the picture. We saw her in NOLA, but she had not met Jackson. It was so good to see her. I had not seen her in 5 years! She lives a fabulous life in the Caribbean working on yachts. How cool? Aunt Shay came over to see her too! Jackson does not know how lucky he is to be surrounded by such beautiful Phi Mu's. He will one day though!

I took this picture on our way home. Jackson stayed with his Gran Dan and She She in Baton Rouge while we were in New Orleans. It was the first time I was away from him and I missed him terribly, but we had a good time and he had a wonderful time with his grandparents being spoiled all weekend. But I took this picture of his cheeks because I am obsessed with them. They are so fat and just hang! I LOVE them. Jackson got to meet his Uncle Lee and Aunt Lisha this weekend. Of course it was love at first sight for all involved. We also ate lunch with Matt's parents for Mrs. Shelia's birthday. She got to spend her birthday with Jackson and I think that is they only thing she wanted. What a weekend. Last and not least - I got to see my friend Becca Lee that I have not seen since mine and Matt's wedding 5 years ago. She works on yachts in the Caribbean so she does not get back much. It was SO good to see her. I have missed her! She is also coming through town and will stop to see us so hopefully I will remember to take a picture then! Now I need another weekend to recover.

And this picture fully illustrates his food storage ability in those cheeks! Uncle Buster stayed with us last night (and I still didn't get a picture) and he was amazed as everyone is about how much Jackson eats. It is staggering. He should be eating 4 ounces, but he likes eating 7 ounces. It's just how he rolls!
And I took this picture yesterday morning for our moms and grandmothers! I knew they would love to see Matt in his scrubs and short coat. Only one more year and he will have a long coat! Doesn't he look so cute?? Does this qualify for a man in uniform?

Many many thanks! We love it!

We gave the Bumpo a try today and Jackson sat up in it pretty well. We can start putting him in it to work on his head control. He has had great head control for his age since he was born, but I think that is because he has a small head like his parents.

This was at Barry and Macey's. He slept SO long. Look at those cheeks. He's storing food in there for the winter.He decided to wake up for the second half, but the second half was ugly.
I know the rebels played terrible, well at least the defense did, but I am not down about our entire season. I think we will still do well this year and this is coming from the person who threatens to be an Alabama fan every year when we do something bone headed like this. I explained to Jackson that this is Ole Miss' MO, we have to do something bone headed every year. I am hoping we can go to the Vandy game and take Jackson to the Grove for the first time, but we will have to see what Matt's schedule looks like. So for now the rebels put a damper on our weekend, but we will survive, we always do.

So that was a lot of information to start Fratty Friday off with, but to catch everyone up:
Yes I said Jackson is sick. Matt brought a cold home from the hospital and gave it to Jackson and me last weekend when Uncle Buster was in town (I didn't get pictures of that either). By Wednesday Jackson was so stuffy I took him on the doctor even though he had not run a fever. He has been such a little trooper. He has not been too fussy and slept through the night every night this week. While I was with him at the doctor's office his She She came up to keep him. I didn't want to get the other kids at day care sick. She stayed until yesterday and his Aunt Anna is keeping him today.
I overslept this morning because I was making a beeline for bed last night when we got home. I was so sleepy! We have a rigid routine (I will blog about it sometime) every morning and night because that's what it takes to get everything done. I don't mind it, in fact I really kind of like it. So in my mad dash to bed I failed to get my phone out of Jackson's diaper bag. So this morning my alarm went off for 23 minutes before Jackson woke us up to let us know it was Fratty Friday and feeding time. We worked it out though and Matt and I made it to work on time.
So Uncle Buster came to visit, we got sick, we went to the doctor, She She came to keep Jackson, Jackson watched his first college football game, and that brings us to Fratty Friday! Whew.... What a week. Now it's time for the Labor Day weekend. Big R and Munchkin will be here tomorrow and we'll watch some Ole Miss football. What a weekend!!
