More Great News...

Tooth #2 arrived shortly after the first one, just a few days in fact.  So, Jackson now has two adorable pearly whites (both on the bottom) which he doesn't like to let us see.  We do sneak a peak when is laughs though, which is pretty often.  I think there might be some more on the way since he hasn't wanted to sleep very well lately.  We're back to getting up once in the middle of the night.  I'd forgotten how draining it is to have to get up for an hour in the night since we haven't had to do it much since November.

The other piece of wonderful news came at Jackson's doctor's appointment last week -- for the first time since November, Jackson has NO fluid in his ears!!  YEAH!!  Scott and I did our own little happy dance right there in the office when we heard that news.  Jackson has been battling ear infections since last fall and it hasn't be fun at all.  This was the last appointment before meeting with an ENT specialist if he still had fluid in his ears.  Luckily, we're off the hook for now.  I have a feeling he might still end up with tubes in his ears next fall but at least for now we're good.

In the last post I talked about how much Jackson likes to put his feet up on things.  He literally will roll around on the floor until he reaches something to put his feet up on.  Here are some typical Jackson shots with his feet up on the furniture.  He particularly likes to roll under the coffee table and put his feet up on the bottom of it.

I love how he has his feet crossed in this one!

Lately, Jackson has turned into quite a goofball (I wonder where he gets it?).  When he thinks he's being funny he smiles really hard and in a totally weird way.  We've started calling it his cheeseball grin.  Enjoy!

Of course, it's even better when he has baby food smeared all over his face!  What a funny little guy!

And this is the look I get when Jackson has had quite enough of the camera.

Last weekend Aunt Danielle and Zoe came over to deliver our much-anticipated girl scout cookies.  Here are Jackson and Zoe being goofy.  Jackson picked just the right moment to move in the first picture but I think the look on his face is pretty cute.

These two are going to be buddies!

We are going to be pretty busy in the next few weeks.  Next weekend we are traveling back to Iowa to see Elizabeth and her fiance, Reef, who will be visiting from San Francisco.  Can't wait to meet him!!  The clan will try to keep the food-fighting under control.  We'll also be celebrating Scott's birthday on March 31.  Jackson will also be baptized (I know, we should have gotten this done months ago) at the end of April in Sioux City, IA in the church I grew up in.  Another fun weekend with the family!
