Thanksgiving 2012

Mommy and Daddy have a night out!!

We had a blast at the Charity Ball!

Catching up in pictures

I just wanted to upload a few pics from the last month. I finally found some time to transfer them from the "actual" camera. Amelia is just growing up so fast! We had a great Halloween and such a fun time during the fall festivities.

Pumpkin Patch field trip!

I went with Jackson on his school field trip to the pumpkin patch. We had such a great time. He was so excited to ride on the bus! It seems like I remember bus seats being so much bigger. We played and  played and had a  picnic lunch. It is amazing to see how much he has grown since the last field trip!

Amelia is ONE!

Our sweet girl turned one last week. Time has flown right by! She is just the cutest little thing ever. She is all over the place but not quite walking. It will be any day now. She is a little climber though, crawling in chairs and on top of tables.  She has two teeth and is trying to get 4 more all at one time. She is saying Ma-Ma, Da-Da, and Uh-Oh. She can hold up one finger if you ask her how old she is and wave Hey and Bye-bye. She waves real big for Hi and opens and closes her little hand for bye-bye. She will also give kisses! We had a great time the weekend of her birthday. She had so many family and friends come visit and come to her party. We are so blessed to be surrounded by so many special people that love our baby girl! Here are a few pics from the party.

Soccer season

It is that time of year season. This time Adam is the coach of the team. He was a little hesitant about doing it. He just wasn't sure how Jackson would react to him in a different role. So far so good. I am keeping up with the administrative end of things for him.... Doesn't that sound just like us!! Jackson was slow to start as usual, but by the third game he was back with it. Ironically one of the boys on the team is actually a baby I took care of in the NICU. That is coming full circle. Amelia is as usual along for the ride and just hanging in there. The first game was unbelievable hot. She didn't make a peep though. Here are a few pics from the first and second game. Their color are purple and gold. Adam said it was destiny he coached this year! LOL.

Let me just say I hate it already. Lol. Poor Jackson has really jumped into all things "big boy" all at once. I bet he is thinking GOSH!! I know I am. I was just thinking today how full our schedule is. It is fun but boy am I tired at night! We were doing homework the first night and I tell Jackson "You get a sticker at school on Friday if you do all this." He says with the most straight face "I don't want a sticker!". Really, I wouldn't either. So over the course of the next two night he randomly asks me "mom what is blood pressure? " and then " mom what are nerves?" I am seriously not remembering what exactly I may have said, but obviously something concerning both my blood pressure and my nerves! So today I went by Target and got a pretty jar and filled it with gummy fruit snacks and starburst. You get one after homework is all done! 15 minutes later we were eating a piece of candy. Whatever works is definitely my motto! I am so proud if him though. And miss Amelia is crawling all over the place. I just crack up sometimes at how different she is from Jackson. I put her down in the floor today while Jackson was practicing with his scissors. She instantly crawled to the electric socket and was jamming her pacie in it. Whew! Can I say hands full! Jackson with scissors and Amelia on a mission for danger. Well this is our last weekend before soccer starts every Saturday. I plan on sleeping in!! We will see how that goes.
