The day has finally arrived. I have been waiting 21 months for this, which may or may not be pathetic... I'm not sure. But today, for the first time ever, Jackson said "Mommy, I love you."

Oh yeah...

Easter was fun this year. Dying Easter eggs is one of my favorite traditions, but it just didn't seem like a good idea with Jackson, so instead we decorated egg shaped cookies. Yummy.
Jackson got all kinds of fun stuff from us and from grandparents. And he was just hilarious hunting for eggs. He would do this cute little celebration dance everytime he found one.

Our Weekend

This was our weekend... Yep... that about sums it up. A pathetic waste of time? Maybe. Incredibly fun? Absolutely!

Playing "Srums"

Tyler's birthday present arrived today (a month early... I know).
Guitar Hero World Tour
( $71 for the whole band kit + game... awesome deal!)
All day long Jackson keeps asking me if he can play the "srums". The really amazing thing is that Jackson can actually play the game, because on the beginner level it doesn't tell you specific notes. You can hit any note you want as long as its on beat. So if he's drumming fast enough, he actually hits a lot of the beats. This video is great because of all the dancing around at the beginning, but also because before he really starts playing he does a little countdown for himself, "Two... Go!"

Do you want to see what true disappointment looks like? This is Jackson after I told him that it was raining (again!) and we probably wouldn't be able to play outside today.
The devastation when he looked out the window and saw it for himself.
