Jackson 11 months

I can't believe Jackson is going to be having his first birthday in a couple of weeks! This year has gone by so fast. When he was tiny I never thought I would say that but he's been so happy and so fun since he was about 6 months old.
After some concerns from his last doctors appointment I was worried about Jackson's development but this last month he has made HUGE progress! He finally figured out how to get from his tummy and back onto his bottom, he learned how to crawl on his hands and knees on the 4th of July, just this week he's pulling to stand, and he got 6 teeth in one week! He even managed to take his first tumble down the stairs this past Sunday, so sad! I am so proud of his hard work and he is so proud of himself!

Every time I pull out the camera he cheeses it so big and reaches for the camera
Jackson and his cousin Cory are best buddies and love to play together. This day they were enjoying their lunch while watching sesame street, it was pretty cute!
Jackson had his first ice cream cone after Sunday dinner and thought it was pretty yummy but freaked out when he had a handful of freezing cold ice cream and didn't know what to do with it!
We are really enjoying this sweet baby and can't wait to see what the next month brings us. I hope to be better with keeping track of his milestones!

4th of July

I am just not into this blogging thing anymore and I don't know if anyone even looks at our blog since I update about once a month, but we've been doing lots of fun stuff so here's some pictures of our jam packed 4th of July weekend.
We had a fun swimming/ family get together at Aunt Denise's house, the kids had a blast playing with their cousins they don't see very often!
At the parade, apparently Jorge was happy to be there!
Great Grandpa and Great Grandma Thatcher love their grand babies and the babies love them!
Cute little Jackson at our family reunion. We had a huge family reunion with my dad's side it was all of his aunts, uncles, and cousins, it was fun to see relatives we haven't seen in probably 10 years or more.
Jorge and I ran in the Freedom Run 10k and Kaden ran the 1 miler. We had so much fun running with friends/neighbors. And after we got to hang out with all of them and watch the parade.
