Bouncy Baby Boyd

Jackson got a Jonny Jumper from Grandma and Grandpa Boyd for Christmas. He is definately good at bouncing!

New Car

This week we bought a "new" car. We traded in my Honda Accord for a much newer, lower mile car, but I still really miss my Honda. That was a great car... *sigh* Anyway, the new car is beautiful too. Tyler decided we needed something lower miles before we started dental school. It's a 2008 Toyota Camry with 5,000 miles. (Tyler wants me to tell people its a 2009. It is exactly the same, just one year older) It's the really basic LE model without any fancy features, which is perfect for us, and we got a great deal on it. I know everyone says that, but we really did get an awesome deal for such a new car. Our savings account is a lot smaller now, but I suppose its worth it. I'm still getting used to it but Tyler is in love. I'm just glad that the stress of car shopping is over. Jackson wants to drive it. For anyone who can't tell, we are sitting in our garage. Of course I would never let Jackson in the front seat while we were driving.
Beep Beep! Jackson's favorite feature is the horn.
I was going to take a picture of the car, but it's dark and cold outside. Although really if you want to see what it looks like, just take a drive around the block. I swear every third car out there right now is a Camry.

Baby Kisses

I have been trying to teach Jackson how to give kisses. I show him how it's done, and then he tries to copy me.He is still getting it figured out. It's a little slobbery.

One of Those Days...

This morning I was feeling so proud of myself for getting Jackson all ready for his day. I got him dressed up in the cutest little outfit. A brown and blue striped shirt, perfectly matching baby blue pants, and cute little brown and blue socks that matched the shirt. How coordinated! Then, he had an inevitable poopy explosion, the same way he does every day, so I changed his pants to some that didn't really match and were a little too small because I was behind on laundry. Then I realized that one of his socks was missing. I couldn't find it. But I was running late, and lucky me, there was another sock (who had also lost its twin) sitting on the entertainment center. Perfect, right? So I threw it on. On my way out the door, I noticed what his perfect little outfit had evolved into, so I took a picture. Despite my efforts, he ended up looking like a silly little mismatched Boyd anyway.

Growing Up Quickly

I am going to try to be better about actually writing on our blog. It's so much easier to just post pictures, and they are probably more fun to look at, but every once in a while I need to write something too. Friday when I picked up Jackson from the daycare, I had one of those moments where he all of the sudden seemed older. I dropped him off in the morning, and then I picked him up 8 hours later and he looked older. It makes me really sad. I hate daycare! I love our daycare, but just daycare in general... I hate it. Yesterday, Jackson got to spend the entire day with Mommy. Tyler went snowmobiling with the boys, so we got to hang out at home and play together all day. It was pretty fun. I can't believe how mobile Jackson is becoming. I left the room for less than a minute, and I came back and he had rolled all of the way across the room and was opening the cabinets on our entertainment center. I didn't know he could open things! He also started drinking out of sippy cup, and we discovered he likes squash. I really enjoyed spending a whole day learning things like this about him. I wish I could spend every day doing that. Anyway, life is good at the Boyd house!
