Sippy cup: 1 Jackson: 0

Jackson has had kind of a rough week. As you can see in the photo above, his sippy cup took out his lower lip and part of his cheek earlier this week. Not really sure what happened, but I think he was running and drinking at the same time and did a face plant. He had a fat lip and it was cut pretty bad on the inside. I am happy to report all teeth are still intact! Poor kid.

Jackson's also had a cough that won't go away. It started months ago when he got sick and he just can't shake it. I took him into the pediatrician again yesterday and they decided to do a chest x-ray. He HATED the x-ray. Screamed the entire time and had big tears coming down his cheeks :( The x-ray shows evidence of childhood asthma. He's got his own little inhaler now and it should help. The good news is the doctor said if he does have it, it is very likely he will grow out of it. The cough doesn't seem to bug him, but I'm hoping it will be gone soon.

Here are some recent pictures and a video of J-dawg!

The curl hawk

One very tired little boy

Swimming- He LOVES going down the slides

Happy :)

With Mother's Day being tomorrow, I just want to say I am incredibly thankful for this little guy. Every night I tell him "You are the best part of every day" and "I love your guts!" He is such a sweet kid. So loving and smart and funny and happy. I feel very blessed that I get to be the one he calls "mama."

Ainsley keeps on telling me Jackson is a guy now not a baby. I agree. He is a little guy. And a cute one at that. I am sorry about the asthma crap. Both my kids have it and it is a pain. Isaac is worse than Ainsley especially when his allergies are out of control. At least there is hope when they say they will grow out of it. Love u guys.

I love the curl hawk picture! It's so cute! I'm glad you've figured out the cough thing! Thank goodness for inhalers! :)

He is a sweet little guy. I'm glad I got to know him better when we had the picnic. The curl hawk should definately be a new fashion trend! I hope his cough gets better soon.
