Happy New Year

We ended the new year on a productive note, and then today has been a lazy day for Jackson and I. Josh had to work both last night and today, so Jackson and I are enjoying my last day of break before heading back to school. I am already dreading leaving him in the morning.

We had a great Christmas and got spoiled tremendously by both sides of our family. I am pretty sure Jackson’s highlight of vacation was shooting baskets. The kid is obsessed with playing basketball and to say we play for over an hour and a half every day is not an exaggeration at all.

I got a wild hair when Josh went back to work on Thursday and decided to put up Jackson’s toddler bed. I wasn’t really planning on doing this until after the baby, but for some reason, it sounded like a good idea that afternoon. Amazingly, Jackson has adjusted very well. He still will talk to himself for about 20 minutes before putting himself to sleep. I think it is God’s way of helping me out since it took him 6 months to really start sleeping all night.

We were lucky yesterday to have Josh’s parents come down and help us get organized for the baby. The baby’s room now at least has a crib in it and we began organizing our basement so we are able to walk! And it was extra nice having Erica and Drew here to play with Jackson so I was able to help without the little helper.

We bought some outfits, blankets, and baby books for the baby finally. I don’t think we will do much else until we find out if it is a little guy or gal that will be joining our family. I do know that he or she will have Josh and I wrapped within the first two minutes of their life. We are both starting to get really excited to meet the little one. Hope everyone has a great New Year’s and a healthy and safe 2012.
