I can't believe how bad I have been about blogging. I really hope that I will be able to spend a little more time recording the precious memories we continue to make every day. Where do I start?
Kylie was recently a flower girl in one of my dear friend Emily's wedding in Dallas. She was so excited just to get to go stay in the hotel and spend the night! She did such an amazing job. Watching her walk down the aisle really made me emotional. I had to fight back the tears. I was bursting with pride and joy at this beautiful creation God has given me. Even on the days when she tests me (many days!) I still go to bed thinking that she is such an amazing little girl. So many nights, Adam comes to me after putting her to bed and says "Aren't we so lucky?" and of course, I couldn't agree more.
We celebrated Adam's 32nd birthday on the 6th and had lunch at Tres Amigos with all the family. Gigi and Gramps even came in from Arizona! It was their first time to meet Jackson and they really had a great visit getting to spend time with him.
Speaking of little Jackson... well, not so little! He just had his 6 month check up and is weighing in at 18 lbs now! Funny thing is, Kylie was even bigger than that. He's already trying to crawl and can pretty much go anywhere he wants to go. He's quite the little stinker already. Some of his favorite things to do are:
  • Pull Kylie's books of the shelf and eat them
  • Play with the Christmas tree
  • Pull the kitty's hair and whiskers
  • Chew on his spoon
  • Chew on anything, really
  • Roll over every time someone wants to change him
  • Play with the little lever on the diaper pail
  • Pull his basket of toys off his bookshelf and play with the basket
  • Watch Mickey Mouse - he loves that show!

He is quite a character and we can already tell we are going to have our hands full with this one. He's getting his two bottom teeth in now and I'm sure more will come soon. He really is such a sweet baby (even if he does pull my hair!). What a blessing he is....

We are getting so excited about the holidays and spending some time together without having to worry about work! I can't wait!
