August 2009 = Craziness

So Jackson's sixth month flew by. We had so much going on that I barely had time to appreciate all his new developments. The one I'm especially excited about is that he now sleeps through the night! Every time those words come out of my mouth I want to dance in place really hard.

Jackson is so close to crawling that it could literally happen any day. He scoots himself around the floor and can pretty much get to whatever seems the most appealing to him. Confession time: One day I was in the kitchen cooking harvest dinner (one of the things that made our month so crazy) and Jackson was in the living room playing with cousin Kaitlynne. I could hear him playing and talking and could see them around the corner, but since I'm not the greatest cook in the world, I have to admit that I was focusing mostly on the pot roast. Kaitlynne toddled around the corner looking a little suspicious so I decided to go to the living room to check things out. I could still hear Jackson, but when I looked around I didn't see him anywhere! I instantly panicked and felt guilty for not keeping a closer eye on him. After a couple more playful squeaks from Jackson I located him under the couch. Completely under the couch. He was content to be under there, but I still felt guilty...

I'm proud (and relieved) to say that we FINALLY bought a new (to me) car. After touring what seems like every car lot in Spokane I found the perfect car for us- a Mazda Tribute. It's not too big, but big enough to hold all of Jackson's stuff (for being so little he has a lot of stuff). It gets good gas mileage for an SUV (around 25), it was very well taken care, doesn't have too many miles on it and was in our price range. Yay!!! I officially hate car shopping.
