Pictures of Jackson - Finally!

I realize I haven't put up any pictures for a while so I figured I'd make up for it and put on a thousand pictures. So here they are.

He is so strong. Everything I read says that babies should maybe be holding their heads up by three months and sometimes it may even take four. He has been holding his head up since two months. He is not cuddly either. He cannot lay down. He has to be looking around at everything even when he is so tired he can't keep his eyes open.

His classic sleeping position. When he is really out, his hands are, too.

I got him laughing but I had the red eye reduction on so he had his eyes closed by the time it got to taking the picture, but it was so cute. I guess the red eye worked.

I don't know where he came up with the facial expression from!

Beautiful mother and baby!

This was his first Christmas and he has the shirt to prove it

My family came in this week so they got to spend some time with them. Jackson loves being around guys over women. He loved everyone, but Rick could get him to laugh so easily. Jackson couldn't take his eyes off of him.

We really have to get a picture of all of us together on my professional camera. We get so busy, but soon we will. This one will have to do in the meantime.

With Granddaddy.

With Dad on Christmas

Rick makes me look short anymore.

Annie and Jackson

All of us together

Looks like Jackson is trying to hide something.

Annie and Sarah both wanted to hold Jackson for the picture so I caught them in action.

Becka and her wonderful father

We dedicated Jackson to the Lord on December 6!

The picture quality is not very good, but it really showed the color of his eyes.

He is such a happy baby and only cries when we know somehting is wrong with him. Otherwise he just sits and looks around. I love holding him and playing with him. He is the biggest blessing of our married life.

He found his thumb and he cannot live without it.

He is such a chunk. When we weighed him at 3 months, he was 15 1/2 pounds. That's twice his birth weight!

This is Jackson enjoying his first Christmas present

He jumps around like crazy in this thing. It makes noise every he moves so it gets a little annoying, but he enjoys it so I do, too.
