Lovin' our Adventures with Jackson


Well it has been 9 days since picking up my Grandbaby boy at the airport, my girls come home at Midnight tonight. Jackson has been an absolute delight & he has kept us on our toes. He has a hilarious sense of humor, and loves an audience. He cracks himself up as much as he cracks us up. He has been an adventurer of all things Kitchen, loves emptying cupboards. Grandma bought him some new toys, but he finds so much more fun in tossing around empty 5 gallon water barrells,

stacking empty ice cream buckets,
and while shopping at Marshall's with Julia, I had to buy him a red serving spoon. I think chef school may be in his future.


He learned the phrase "shut the door" from exploring the DVD collection in the Entertainment unit. He likes hangin with the guys drinkin' & watching TV.
He is a dancer extrodinare, and watches "So You Think You Can Dance" with Gramma. Mark & Gev have nothing on this white boy!
Heidi told me to watch out for his "leading the music" in church. Sure enough as soon as we walked into the chapel and he heard the organ play, his little arm went up, and he led the music each and every hymn, and wanted the hymn book close by to make sure he had it right.!

He had fun in my friend Cathy's pool with Skyler, and loved floating around in his pool ring.

Skyler shared his frozen gatorade, and J-man was all over that.


He is an amazing sleeper, taking a good 3 1/2 hour nap everyday, and put him down at night and he sleeps a good 8 hours straight thru the night, and doesn't wake, whimper or whine once. he gets that from his mom, cuz she did the same thing, only problem was that Garen and Randi were 2 1/2 & 1 1/2 and were still getting up in the night.
So we are bonded thru and thru, and so excited that he and his mommy get to stay for the next 3 weeks until Jordan and Breana's wedding. So if you see me with this silly grin on my face, you know why!

Oh, Sheryl! What an angel-baby you've got! I'm so happy for you that you get to have this special bonding time with him. Looks like everyone is soaking it up! I got the wedding invite - great photo. That's right at my due date, so I don't know if I'll make it. What an adorable couple, bet you couldn't be more pleased.

I'm with ya sista! I just spent a week with Katie's family. SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!

Did Jackson ever act like he missed his mamma or did you keep him too busy for that? Heidi probably had a harder time than Jackson.

Grammy Staffy said...

What a little doll. I know that you are having a great time.

We are up here in Utah enjoying our family... we head to Wyoming tomorrow after church to go river rafting. I'm too old for this so wish me luck.

How Cute! Looks like you has lots of fun while the Mommy was away!! Jackson is such a sweet little boy. My mom would be so jealous if she saw this post right now. She'd be sending me off to the Dominican Republic in a heart beat! that's actually not a bad idea...

Looks like you survived and had a blast. He's so cute, and grandmas we know are the best babysitters.

It was so much fun to meet Jackson, he is even cuter in person than all the pics and such a good little guy :) It was also fun to watch you in Grandma mode and to see how much he adores you!!! Have a great day!!!
