Great Family and Friends....

I can't believe it is already March. I am so excited because Brian comes home in less that 70 days! We are finally on the home stretch! He is missing Jackson of course but other than that he is doing good. He doesn't have too much going on over there so his days are going by slowly. When I look at what we have left it sometimes feels like forever but when I look back at what has passed I realize it has flown by. I am so thankful for all of our wonderful friends and family! They have come and visited me after Brian went back to help me out. I am so grateful for them and appreciate everything they have done for me. After Brian left Rachel was so great to pack up her life and spend a few nights with me. Then my mom came. She had so much fun meeting her first grandchild. After she left Heather and Ashlee came. I had so much fun laughing with them and catching up. Then Kristen came, Brian's sister, and was so good to me. She watched Jackson for me while I ran a couple of errands and went to lunch with the girls here. It was nice to get out but I thought about Jackson the whole time. Next was my sister's visit. She has been so much help with making me meals, doing laundry, cleaning, and snuggling with Jackson. And finally Jack and Debbie are coming back. They will be here for week in about a week! I am looking forward to their visit. I have so much fun with them and am so thankful to have such wonderful in-laws. I couldn't ask for better friends and family!!! After Jack and Debbie leave it will just be Jackson and me until Brian gets back. So, Jackson is now 6 weeks old and making baby noises and is more alert with each day. He played with my sister and I for like 45 minutes. The only thing I would ask for Jackson to do more of is take better naps during the day and to sleep in his crib for more than 5 minutes. I can put him in there and 5 minutes later he is awake and crying. I am not sure how to fix that but I am sure I will figure it out! Here are a few pictures from these past weeks!


  1. I love your header! That picture of him is so darn cute. I wish that I could come and visit you and that sweet baby! If we came you would be begging us to leave though cause we are CRAZY! I can't believe that Jackson is already 6weeks! Time seriously flies! Good luck with the sleeping... I hope that he starts sleeping better for you. It is so important! You guys looks like you are doing great! Love you!

  2. I love your new blog design.. very cute! Jackson is a doll baby! I love his bunny suit it is so precious!
