the big 3-0, goals, and a road trip......

Well it happened...I turned the big 3-0!!! and is is not that bad, really.

Sunday was my birthday. I have to say it was great.
Saturday night we had people over to play our brother in law's WI.. they took Jackson and we were on our own. It was a blast. I really don't think Adrian and I have laughed so hard or had so much fun in a long time. Thanks to Gretchen, Luke, Jason and Alice and Balls humor. Then on Sunday we went to Church and afterwards went to lunch at Adrian's parents house for January birthday dinner.
See with in a month we celebrate 5 birthday's in our family. Crazy huh? I have to give props to my hubbie to he remembered my birthday and got me a gift. This is remarkable for an accountant during busy season. So hats off to him!!!!

I have to say I have made a goal for 2008...a 3-0 resolution. I am going to loose this crazy baby weight. I started on Monday morning and I have to say it is tough but it is doable. It gives me motivation to see my friends that have lost 60 -80 pounds in 8 months. Lets just say thinking about that makes me wish it could happen over night.

Jackson and I are also heading to Minnesota this weekend. So I have to get packin' so we will see you all when we get back...and hopefully see some of you in Minnesota. We will leave you with this video of Jackson....as you can see it cracked us all up.

hope this works it is the first time I have tried this.

What look should we go with

Well today was a good but sad day. It started off with my babies butthole lookin' a little funny...so I was a little paranoid to stick the rod up there. But we did it. hopefully the report I get from the doc is good and I was right to continue.


then I went to work...to talk to my boss about the outlook for the next year with Jackson's surgeries and health. We agreed on possibly coming back one day a week to run some groups and to continue working from home occassionally. But that will be at least a day of adult conversation. We will see. It was sad to turn everything in and clean out my desk..as they hired someone to fill my position. I also informed my boss that the outlook for surgeries pretty much took up the whole new year. there is one about every three to four months. Which ends them next November if nothing happens with his kidney between now and then. it was a happy and yet very sad meeting..

then we came home for our first steps appointment and jackson is such a trooper that he got an amazing report on his three month review.. He is actually grasping like most 6 month olds...he is sitting up like he is suppose to by 5 months. He is also reaching and bringing things to his mouth and switching hands. THis is wonderful....it makes mom and dad happy that he is up to his age...actually when you adjust it he is ahead of the game....Go Jackson!!!!!



Now I am getting ready to cook dinner. Momma's homemade Chipotle burritos. Adrian and I love chipotle...so one night we decided to replicate them...in our own way...not bad I must say. They are a little different each time but delish. We are getting are Chef on.



WE also have been tryin' out some looks for jackson and so far this is the one we are going for...it kinda goes with his receating hair line..

the old man look

the gangster stocking cap look

or.....we could just let it all hang out...check out that CHUBB!!!

your choice let us know which one you would go with...

serenade from dad

ok so I am sitting here thinking it might be time to update the ol' blog...and as I begin to type I hear my hubbie singing "hail purdue" to Jackson. this is his way to calm him down I guess. Shocking...it didn't work. It was a little cute though. So here are some new pics of the babe. We are headed to indy tomorrow. We see his kidney specialist and his surgeon and a new appointment first time with his nuerologist. Hopefully we get to start weaning him from the seizure meds.

Have a great day!!! We will talk again when we return.
