Jackson at 5 months

My tiny man is growing to fast. I can't believe he is already 5 months. He is such a chubby thing. We like him that way. We went to a WIC appt. today and he weighs 19 lbs and is 67 cm. he is huge. He is such a happy baby and loves to just play and roll around on the floor. He just sits on the ground and smiles and talks to you. Ryan still can't keep his hands off of him. We have to constantly tell him to leave him alone. It usually turns into Jackson crying. We have started him on some food, he isn't to sure about it but we continue to try. He is trying to crawl and we are hoping that anyday now he will figure it out. He can get up on all fours and rocks, but he just ends up moving backwards. He is a little grabber and if you aren't careful he will get into everything and of course everything ends up in the mouth. We are excited for what comes next with him, but I still want him to be my little baby a little longer.

How we celebrated the 4th

We had a great 4th holiday. We went to Idaho Falls for the parade down there because my sister's came into town with their families. The parade was way fun and Ryan sat in his chair by his cousin's and didn't move for a long time. He loved it and got lots of candy and a flag. He kept saying how is loves the harade. Jackson wasn't so sure about the parade because it was really bright and sunny. He loved that he got to have lots of people hold him. After that we went to my mom's and had a fun barbecue with lot of good food.
Ryan loved having a flag to wave
For the fireworks, we took Chris' parents and brother and we went to Freeman park and had a some food while we waited for the fireworks. We were close to my family so Ryan could play with his cousins. We had fun hanging out with everyone before the fireworks started. My camera's battery died after we took our family pictures so the other pictures are on our disposable camera so I will have to post those later. We had lots of fun and the fireworks were way good. We had a great day with family.

Funny pictures

I just have some fun pictures to show you of the boys. Lots of Jackson smiling and playing and Ryan one day got a blanket and made a picnic on the side of our house on the grass. It was so cute, he ate his lunch and snack out there and played most of the day. Sorry just pictures!
When Jackson wants to be picked up he squeals and chews on his hands until someone pays attention to him.Jackson loves his daddy. What a chubby little man!!

Jackson loves to play on the floor

"R" Mountain Hike

Chris came up with the idea of climbing R Mountain. For those of you who don't know where this is, it is outside of Rexburg and it has the R on it for Ricks college. I thought oh that will be fun. As we were driving out there we got stuck in traffic due to construction. Jackson started crying and Ryan says "it's okay baby we are almost to the swimming pool we just need to be patient" Chris and I started laughing, but trying to hide it. Ryan says why are you laughing mom? What do you say to that. We finally made it to the mountain and started up. Wow I am out of shape I couldn't breathe and we had barely started. Ryan was running up the hill and Chris was carrying Jackson. I was far behind trying to breathe when Ryan came up to me and said mommy I will help you and grabbed my hand and helped me. After many stops we finally made it up and it was really pretty. We decided we need to do that more often to get into shape. We had fun and plan on doing it again.
