6 Months Old!

How is this guy already six months old??!! Jackson is just the most delightful little person. He loves to laugh, pull hair, suck on his fingers (and toes), play with the remote and Mom's phone, pull off Brighton's glasses, and snuggle. Oh, and he's super cute. Look at that face. What more could you want in a baby? He is getting pretty good at sitting up and has started eating rice cereal. Well, most of it is spit back out, but still. What a big boy! He was a bit on the skinny side, but now has the most kissable chubby cheeks and the most squishable chunky thighs. Oh, how we love this kid!

Brighton is doing great. She loves school, swimming lessons, dance class, and playing with friends. She is the most social little kid! She dresses up every chance she gets, which means we see ten different outfits a day. Between Bri and Jack there is a plethora of laundry to be done at any given time. She is such a good girl and is growing up so fast. Bri loves to be silly and makes us laugh everyday.
Attempted escape from the bumbo!

Bri went on a Valentines Day scavenger hunt to get to her new Valentines Day dress. She loved it. She cut up pieces of paper and we had "scavenger hunts" for the rest of the day.

MMMM, toes!



Jack & Aunt Lex are good buddies. She even babysat for us one night so we could go on an actual date! The first in many months.

Ahh, the famous hair pull. If there is hair is within arms length, Jackson WILL pull it. Brighton is a great sport. It is so fun to watch them together. She loves to try to make him laugh and he loves his big sis.

Cousin buddies. I'm sure they'll be great friends someday. So fun that they are only a few months apart. Right now, Jack enjoys staring, smiling, and grabbing at baby Connor. Aren't they cute?!

Chillaxin in one of his favorite spots. Bri's ladybug beanbag. Perhaps we'll get him a less girlie one of his own someday.

There is just something about Daddy that makes this guy just want to snuggle up and go to sleep. Bri was the same way.


This is such a fun age. Jackson is full of personality and we all have so much fun with him. Part of me just wants to freeze time and keep him just like this. Babies change too fast!

Seriously! How is he 6 months already!? It's so true how time just flies by...all of a sudden they're not babies anymore! If you find a way to freeze time so they stop growing let me know...I have days where I almost break-down thinking of them getting bigger and leaving. This age is just PERFECT! Man. That Jackson is seriously the cutest.

Holy cow, that is a lot of adorable for one post! And don't think I missed Brighton's zebra shoes and pink pajama's. Fashonista all the way, that one!

Anyway, I love seeing your happy two. You have such a lovely family. Hey, I kinda miss you. It would be nice to cross paths again one day...
