Emotions of Jackson

Our little guy has become full of emotions and expressions. I guess this is just one of many things that I didn't think about when I thought about little people.

Lately one of Jackson's favorite things to do it pout... kind of. If he is sad, or if he knows he has done something wrong he will stick out his bottom lip and look down. He even is walking himself to "quiet time" sitting down and looking sad. He does not get in trouble often and when he does we simply walk over to quiet time to regroup. Recently as soon as I mention quiet time he just walks over and sits down all sad... I feel for him! He is also using sad to express he is hungry- which is an odd connection. It is amazing to see him start to communicate his thoughts and emotions.

When he is happy he bounces around the house and does a "yeeek noise" (wonder where he learned to do that?) When he is mad or wants to argue he puts his hands up to the side and talks back looking through the corners of his eyes. It really is a site to see!

Either way he is becoming more of an emotional guy. Currently we are on day 3 of a fever. Not really sure what is going on but lots of snuggles, fluids and Tylenol in our home.

We recently had some big doctors appointments....

Last week we visited the Cardiologist at Children's Mercy for yet another great report! Jackson has a Bi-Cuspid Aortic Value (instead of Tri-cuspid). It is not a big issue but something that will bring us back to the cardiologist once a year to make sure his heart is working right! Each year that we hear "no change" if a blessing!!! Our Cardiologist reports since he is so BIG and healthy she doubts we will see any complications in the future. I have to admit each year it is a scary morning for me.... I just know his little heart is perfect no matter what.

This week we attended our 2 year well child check up! Our growing boy weighted in at 33 pounds 11 ounces and 36 inches tall. He is in the 95th and 93rd precentile respectively! Aside from this little bug he is fighting the doctor said he was doing great! He has so many words in his vocabulary now as well. Justin was out of town for a few days and swears Jackson can communicate better now then 3 days ago!

These is just our little update. I will try to grab some pictures of Jackson's emotions!

So fun to hear what he's doing! Sounds a lot like Sadie girl...that vocabulary is really changing. I love how she's starting to string words together and really try to have conversations! Hope Jackson gets to feeling better soon!
