When I woke up Matt and I went to the movies and left Jackson with a non-family member for the first time. We were only gone for a few hours and he did great!! A girl from Matt's class Jenna and her husband Zach live around the corner from us and were sweet enough to come over and keep him. They said he was good - and I am sure he was because he has been the happiest baby lately! We went to see Wall Street. It was so nice to go to the movies just the two of us, but I was ready to get back and see my Jacksie man!
We went home and picked up the little man and headed to dinner with Jason and Kaitlyn! It was a perfect ending to an almost perfect weekend. A Rebel win would have made it perfect, but I am not upset. Our household has reached apathy when it comes to this football season.

I finally got his attention - look how happy he was! Like I said he stayed so happy as long as no one was poking him! His shirt says "shhhh I'm watching football with my Daddy" Mrs. Shelia bought this onesie before I was ever pregnant! HA! And look at those football socks!
Last - and most importantly my little guy is 4 months old today!!! He is SO big!!
He weighs 14 pounds and is 25 inches long.
He loves to talk, laugh and kick
He can roll over, but you have to bribe him with flashing toys.
He has started to show a preference in who takes him - he's partial to his mama :)
He is no longer sleeping through the night, but I think it is because he has been sick. He wakes up 1 or 2 or more times now, he has reverted to being 3 weeks old again.
He still fights sleep at times
He has begun to notice Elle and Knox
He eats 7 ounces ever 4 hours, but I still feed him snacks between there if he cries. I am sure I shouldn't, but it stops him from crying.
Matt and I have come to the realization we will not get any sleep until he is 15
I had planned on feeding him cereal in a spoon today, but didn't with everything else going on. I will tomorrow though. I have already started trying out medium flow nipples on his bottles and of course he loves that b/c he gets food faster!! He has started trying to hold his bottle on his own.
He sits up in his car seat and looks around.
He wears 3-6 months clothes except in Ralph Lauren and Gerber and he wears 9 months in them. He must be long for his age because if clothes are too small it is in the length.
We are so blessed and thank God every day for Jackson. Many many prayers went up for him yesterday and today and we thank everyone for that. He is a loved little boy!

We took the Fratty Friday picture in Jackson's car seat right before we left because he was a sleepy head this morning and I could not be more grateful!! He has reverted to being 3 weeks old again and not sleeping. But last night he made progress!! Thank goodness because I was going crazy on no sleep! And thank goodness for my mom and Mrs. Shelia or I would have gone crazy! They came to stay with us because Matt worked nights this week. Thank goodness that it was only for one week. I would not have made it any longer. Now I am just worried about residency. AHHHH! I have a year and a half before that happens though. I never knew the sacrifices doctors went through, not to mention their families, but that is another post for another day! Oh and thanks Sheshe for the fratastic outfit!And here is Frightening Friday!! He is SO cute! He looks like he is showing off his outfit with those arms stuck out. We would like to thank Aunt Lisha for the outfit. I searched high and low for a skeleton sleeper and could not find one. Luckily there is a Carter's outlet near Lisha's house in Houston and she found one! It's a 6 month, he's getting so big! If you go over to their blog - "Life with the Luphers" you will see Elle's pink skeleton outfit!!

And lastly -Jackson laying in our bed when we made it home. The little man was worn slap out! But after that weekend who wouldn't be? And yes, he wears the pumpkin shirt his She-She got him every time it's clean! I just love it and he can only wear it this month so we are trying to get good use out of it!

We rolled into town Friday night at about 6:30 and headed straight to the Mexican Kitchen for dinner. We met my parents, Gran and Paw, Kevin and Kayla, Mike, Abby, Emma, and Aunt Nancy. It was the first time Jackson met Mike, Abby, Emma, and Aunt Nancy!
On Saturday it was off to Mrs. Jackie's for breakfast! We saw her, Mr. Charlie, Lynn, and even Thomas!! From there it was on to our next stop - CJ's Pizza (if you have not noticed already we ate our way through the Golden Triangle). Charlie met us there and Jackson met him for the first time, we watched the Rebels and had some of the best food!! We spent the rest of the afternoon at Gran's watching the game and meeting even more new people. Aunt Mimi, Mrs. Karen, and Mr. Steve! Notice the picture of Jackson and Mrs. Karen - she has on her maroon MSU shirt and he has on his Rebel smocked outfit!! Matt and I went to a wedding Saturday night, but before the wedding we hit up Anthony's (more eating) for a date night! John Russell McPherson is a guy in Matt's med school class and he was the one getting married!
On Sunday we went to New Salem and I cannot even begin to name all the people Jackson met! After church and some of Munchkin's chili (YUM) we headed to the Pumpkin Patch for pictures. It was really really windy so we did not stay long. We got some really cute pics, but next year Jackson will be reeking havoc on the hay maze!
What a weekend!! This weekend we are headed out of town again for my cousin Carrie's wedding! We are nuts, but I can't wait!
