We are leaving in about an hours to travel to Warrensburg, MO then Jefferson City, MO. Both Justin and I are so excited we could not sleep last night! Jackson was excited too as he woke up extra early today. Chewy is ready for the trip as he is all bundled up! He does actually wear this and does keep the booties on for a bit. He walks funny in them. At least he is warm! I can't wait for time with family and also Jackson's first Christmas. I am off work for a week and am setting some serious boundaries with work- my family is so important and I don't want to miss a minute of the next few days! Justin is also off for a few days so it will be nice to have some family time!!! Will publish some fun posts after the holiday for sure!!! Merry Christmas everyone!!

No exactly- but Jackson has officially learned how to climb onto the couch by himself. He loves to be on the couch and go back and forth from one end to another and stand and jump on it. He also likes to jump off! We have been able to catch him each time as he flies off head first!!! He has no fear! He is also standing for longer stretches of time. He has officially taken his first step too. He can't connect any together but he is able to move one step without holding onto anything!!!
We leave on Tuesday for our travels across Missouri to see family.

Things have been crazy so the blogging has been limited! Jackson has been on antibiotics to fight ear infections- we think he is almost back to himself after 5 weeks of being sick! Justin is still working like crazy! Jackson and I have all our Christmas shopping done, he is a great helper- most of the time. He has recently learned how to pull clothes off of hangers as we cruise by in the store. So maybe he has not be that great of a helper! Chewy got a new hair cut. He always looks like a goof for a few days-ok he always looks like a goof but extra goofy for a short period after a hair cut. I have my car back after beign without it for a month! Good as new to me!
Also the most exciting is that Jackson has been standing by himself for short periods of time. The longest has been about 5 seconds. it is so crazy to see him just stand there!
Hope everyone is doing great. Here is a picture from tonight- notice Chewy and his haircut in the background!! Chewy and and Jackson seem to be playing a lot more together- it is hilarious to watch Jackson head butt Chewy!

Today is St. Nicholas Day! Jackson left his shoes out by his door and this morning he had a gift! Part of his gift was actually his shoes! He got some new warm kicks this week! He also got some fun busy balls that do fun stuff. Jackson mostly likes to bang them together!
Happy St. Nicholas Day!

Jackson can really move!! He can walk behind his toy really well until he runs into stuff. He seems to really like this! He still does not seem to interested in walking on his own just yet. He gets around so well crawling. He is cruising around and quick. He is just so fun to be with, we love every minute.

Yesterday was Justin's birthday so not the best celebration for him. I think it was just as scary for him. My parents are letting us borrow a car- we will rent a car once we know the plan for repairs. I am fine, just sore and a little stressed about making a stupid mistake! Cars can be fixed or replaced- and the important things in life like our family is what matters most.
Thanks for the thoughts and prayers!
