I have our Baby Jackson!

He's Here!
Long day in L.A..We left the house at 10 am, and didn't get home until 7:30.....Randi's passport problems took us to the Los Angeles Federal Building. When I tried to document that with my own camera, a Security Guard jumped out of the building, and made me delete my picture. He also made me scroll thru to make sure I did not have any other pictures. Myyyy Gooodnesss! So after waiting another hour and a half they corrected her birthdate from 1960, to 1980, and we were off to the airport to meet Heidi and Jackson.


We had some time to kill, and so Skyler thinks I figured ways to torture him, by trying to play a game, and taking some pictures. But alas, he was not amused. But he is MY Baby even if he is 18!Randi was a bit more compliant, but people watching won out in the end.

One of the Best Smiles ever!
then our Heidi and Jackson arrived,. Heidi looks great. She has taken up running again. It was so good to hug my girl after 3 months! And Jackson has grown! In just 3 months and 4 pounds later, our boy has changed so much. He is a walker, and he answers yes and no questions with the nod of his head, and sometimes a resounding "yes"...He LOVES to dance, and he is a curious and busy boy, I am going to be plum tuckered out after 8 days for sure. Good thing he is an angel and he is so easy going. He gave his momma kisses goodbye as she and Randi left for their adventure, and we are loving having him. Can't get enough of this boy!!

So Heidi came in, dropped off the baby, and took off all at the same time? WOW, she's going to be exhausted but what a fun adventure those two girls will have together. Fun for you that you get to have the baby for a week. You're right, you'll be exhausted but so worth it!

I can't believe you got busted for taking a picture of the federal building...you're such a criminal!

Oh, come on....you've done this a million times. Well, 8....but that should qualify you for doing an AMAZING job with just ONE. I am sure he will be SPOILED ROTTEN! Lucky boy! Have fun.

Those security guards really know how to jump out of nowhere. Sounds fun to have him around for a while! I love seeing pictures of him because I haven't seen him since Brendon's wedding. You're going to have a great time!

Jackson is so cute! I can't wait to see him tomorrow night, and Heidi looks great. They must be having so much fun!

Heidi said...

Hi Mom,

First off thank you so much for watching Jackson I really appreciate it and I know he is in such good hands with his wonderful Grandma Holmes! I miss him so much and was hoping that I could talk to him tomorrow. I'm sorry I missed your first call this week, I was working @ LDS and didn't get home until almost 10pm. The problem is that I don't have a cell phone so could you please call our home phone at 4:30pm your time (5:30pm my time) tomorrow? I look forward to the call!!!!



Love,

Matt



p.s.- Mom, I would regret if I didn't take this opportunity to share my feelings about Heidi. I love your daughter so much. Since the day we were sealed she has blessed my life each and every day. I know that she is the wonderful woman she is because of you and your husband. I will never be able to fully express my gratitude for all that you have taught her with your wonderful example which in turn has blessed our family so much. I miss Heidi every moment she's gone but I hope she feels my love for her even though we may be apart for this short time.
