A 3 year old, a 6 month old and a mom who can't quite keep up!

out for a walk
Well its been another couple of months and no updates yet again.  Remember the days WAY back when, when updated monthly on things Jackson was doing.  Those days seem to be long gone so I will try and catch you up.

 Zach is now 6 months old (for a few more days at least) and is changing oh so quickly!  He has had so many firsts just this last month.  He is now rolling both from his back to his front and front to back.  He got his first tooth with the second just about to pop through.  He can now sit up without help, until I walk away for a second then he is sure to fall over and hit his head! The one that gets me the most is he would really love to stand without help and is even try to move those little feet!! I'm really really not ready for him to start walking.  The BEST thing he has started doing this month is to let his mom and dad get a little more, well a lot more, sleep at night!! He sleeps for about 12 hours at night and only eats at about 10:30 and 5:30!  I can handle that!!! We had a few rough cry it out nights but we all seem to be much happier now!!! Zach had his 6 month checkup and is really growing!  He weighed 17.4 lbs and was 28 inches long! He is such a happy baby and I can tell he is going to be a mover just like his big brother!!!

Speaking of Jackson, he celebrated his third birthday on March 23 It was all things pirate for him and he couldn't be happier with all the things he got!! He seems to think he is going to have another birthday soon though :).  Jackson loves to play with his Jake and the Neverland Pirate ships, hideouts, swords, you name it if it's pirate I think he has it!! (spoiled much?!?! Never!!)  He is constantly amazing us with all the words he knows, maybe better yet, I'm not sure there is a word he doesn't know(minus the bad ones!!)  Jackson is also really growing he weighed in at 32.2 lbs and 39 inches. He has definitely developed his own opinion and can really keep us on our toes pushing the limits and finding his boundaries.  He is oh so sweet and loves his baby brother and his family so much!  He loves giving us kisses and telling us he loves us, and he will dream about us.  Lately, even tells me how he wants to pray for us.  I think both he and I and everyone else in Iowa are really ready for spring so we can get out of the house and do some playing!  Jackson got a real bike this year so I think he will keep us busy chasing him around all summer!  (see what Jackson was doing at 6 months  here)

 Life is going great, we're all happy, healthy, and we can't wait to see what the next 6 months or 3 years brings!
