Christmas Day

Christmas morning

Gift from Santa

His own little desk

...lost in all the presents

...checking out his stocking.

He loves music. This was his other gift from Santa.

He loves his chair from Nana and Pop

All the kids at the Watson Christmas...Jack's not the baby this year.

I love this picture...Me, Jack and my daddy (aka Pop) on Christmas night...good times!

Christmas Eve

Jack with Grammie

My little monkey

Jack with Uncle Martin and his new toy

Me and Ashley...she's 7 weeks pregnant!!! We are all hoping for a girl!

...loves the paper!

We did the usual for Christmas Eve...eat a good meal and exchage gifts at Meme's house. Jack came home with more gifts, of course!! I seriously do not know where we are going to put all of his toys.
And more on Jack's developmental progress...well, looks like he is doing to good. We finally heard back from Medicaid and HSM and it appears that they feel Jack has a "minimal delay" and they are not going to approve all of his therapy. So, I am now writing a letter to appeal this action because it is VITAL for Jack to stay in weekly therapy. I mean, give me a break...why do you think Jack is doing so well and only has a "minimal delay"? He has been in weekly therapy since 3 months old and we work our tails off at home! So please say a little prayer that my letter will change their minds.

Beau trip

Jeramy and I went to the Beau last week for a little "getaway". It was so nice and relaxing. We did the usual...sleeping in, shopping, Mary Mahoney's and a little gambling!

Busy decorating...

I think I am finally done decorating the house for Christmas...woo hoo! Of course, Jack was a big help...playing with all the deco mesh and Christmas balls!! Jack doesn't really care for his tree, but he is drawn to the one in the living room, but no major incidents yet. And we found out that he HATES Santa...Christmas party at church...threw a fit once he realized he was in Santa's lap...will definitely scan and post pic soon!

And for the developmental updates : ) He is doing so good...crawling distances, like to other rooms and getting into cabinets, closing doors, becoming quite the roamer...putting things "in" like cubes in a bucket and a ball through a hoop...waving bye bye...trying to feed you while he is eating...and the BIG one, he is actually chewing and swallowing table food!!! I know most of you reading this see nothing spectacular about a 14 month old doing these things, but they are HUGE in our world....we take nothing for granted.

My favorite ornament...Jack's 1 yr footprint

Our finished tree...black, white, lime and red is the theme!

Jack checking out his first Mickey ears

He found a toy!!

Our Christmas card

Sunday, November 30, 2008

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Jeramy and I were actually off so we were able to have family time at mom's house. We took Jack and KK to the park behind her house...still to small to enjoy, but good photo opp!
This is what I LOVE waking up to!

Enjoying one of his bday toys

No, he doesn't have on shorts...but darn it, we are going to get the most wear out of these cute outfits!

Taking a stroll

Trying the slide with dad...he wasn't impressed.

...but he loved the swing!

Family pics

Well, it is that time again...Christmas cards!!! All of you guys know how obsessed I am with finding the perfect Christmas card pic. A good friend came in town and took a few pics for us. http://www.purplestork.com/ is creating our card as we speak!

And we also finally made it to Jack's 1 year check up. He is 22 lbs and 29 inches. He is healthy, thank Lord, and doing amazing...thyroid levels were within normal limits and getting his one year eye check up tomorrow. Oh, and...HE IS CRAWLING!!! I REALLY wanted him to crawl by his first bday. Well, he decided a week after his bday he would start crawling. When am I going to realize that he is just going to do it when and how he wants??
