This is it, it is official, we no longer have a baby in the house. Our baby turned one last week. Oh that kid is so sweet and one of a kind. He has been the perfect addition to our perfect family (I can say that with humility, because I am pretty sure you think your own family is perfect as well!)

I love being his mom and feeling him cling to me as he watches the world around him. He is a mover and you can believe he knows life is not a specator sport. He gets in there and has no idea that he is not the same age and size as all his siblings. Jackson and Logan continue to adore each other. Lauren and Jackson are probably going to be Bonnie and Clyde as soon as Jackson becomes of some use to her. As it stands she is waiting patiently for that change. When he wakes up from his nap she opens the door and closes it, that's the easiest way to not get caught. then she climbs in his crib and talks to him, he enjoys it and I think she loves a student to teach!

Jackson about 1 week...

...about 3 months...

...about 6 months...

...about 9 months

...about 11 months

...finally Jackson at 1 year.

We celebrated his birthday a little bit late but we did get the traditional smearing of the cupcake!

He enjoyed his cupcake and had no problem making a mess. He also enjoyed the bath and nice warm jammies afterwards. Not to mention the many gifts from his many adoring fans. Thanks to all of you who helped us celebrate this milestone!

A sweater vest picture AND a chocolate cake video???? This is like my favorite post EVER! It was fun to hear the familiar voices in the background of the video too!
