Valentines & Presidents Day weekend

Hope everyone had a happy Valentines Day. We headed up to Idaho Falls for the long weekend and had a great time hanging with the fam. I surprised Sean with tickets to the Jazz vs. Celtics game tomorrow night, so that is how we're spending Valentines this year!

It was a lot of fun going home and showing Jackson off to everyone. He met some cousins and we paid a visit to my grandma.

I was worried he wouldn't sleep well while we were away from home, but he was a champ. We got through the entire weekend without any major meltdowns. My mother-in-law surprised me by telling me I could pick out a new clock for my birthday from Mini Bazaar. Pretty much the same thing as letting a kid loose in a candy store :) I picked out this one and I absolutely love it:

Isn't it great? I know you can't tell from this picture, but it is big! We also brought this home:

Sean for some reason has always wanted a Bonsai tree. His parents got him this one for his birthday and it is really cool. I thought Bonsai trees were always puny, but this one has some girth to it! I am very excited because supposedly it produces little white flowers throughout the year. I'm also terrified I'm going to kill it since I kill everything that's green.

Thought I'd throw this picture in too because I think it is so cute:

I went to check on him the other day when he was napping and this is how I found him. The little stud holds in his own pacifier!

I love your new clock! It's great that Jackson is already learning how to hold in his own binky. I loved it when Whitney started doing that!!

Love the clock. How is motherhood? Does Jackson have a schedule yet? I'm still trying to get Cameron to keep in a binky, practice, practice, practice.
