I'm a little bummed out this morning. Jackson Doctor's office gave me a call. They want me to call in August and make an appointment for Jackson's surgery at around one year. Jeremy and I were both pretty glad when they told us they thought 6 months would be good. So to wait till he's a year old was like a punch in the stomach. Jeremy said he'd call the doctor and talk with him. I guess we just have to keep praying that the doctors know what they're doing. And ask lots of questions.

Jeremy and I ran the Astros 5K on Saturday. It was a lot of fun. Our friends Christie and Joe ran with us. I was a little nerve about running because I havn't ran 3 miles/outside in quite a while. We didn't walk any of it. Jeremy probably could have gone a little faster, but he stuck with me the whole time.
Kendall watched the kids and met us down at minute maid stadium. There was lots of food and a band playing music. After the ran we went swimming it was a fun day with the family. Makayla is getting used to the water and will almost try anything as long as she has floaties on. Isaac likes to stay in the shallow end of the pool and play.
Jeremy and I started to feel alittle sick the morning of the race and now we are very sick. Makayla was stuffed up last week than Isaac and now even the baby is sick. So, we all stayed home from church today. And are just taking it easy. Makayla is completely bored because she's feeling alot better and we're all wanting to take naps.

LIKE I SAID WE GO TO A LOT OF PARTIES DURING THE SUMMER. WE HAD TWO ON SATURDAY BUT COULD ONLY MAKE IT TO ONE.
KENDALL AND I WERE TALKING ABOUT THE PLAY APRONS WE HAD AS KIDS AND IT INSPIRED ME TO MAKE ONE AS A BIRTHDAY GIFT. IT TURNED OUT PRETTY CUTE AND WAS SOOOO EASY TO MAKE. I THINK I MIGHT START MAKING THEM FOR ALL THE LITTLE GIRL PARTIES WE GO TO.
I THINK JACKSON IS PROBABLY THE BEST LITTLE BABY IN THE WHOLE WORLD (NO OFFENSE TO ANYONE) HE'S BEEN SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT FOR THE LAST, LIKE THREE WEEKS. HE USUALLY TAKES GREAT NAPS AND IS ONLY EATING EVERY 3 TO 4 HOURS ITS KIND OF FREAKING ME OUT. HAVING ANOTHER BABY HAS BEEN SOOOO MUCH FUN. I WON'T CHANGE A SINGLE THING IN MY LIFE RIGHT. WELL I MIGHT LIKE IT IF MAKAYLA AND ISAAC WOULD LISTEN TO ME AND OBEY 1 OUT OF THE 50 THINGS ASK THEM TO DO EVERYDAY WITHOUT SOME SORT OF GENTLE NUG OF INCOURAGMENT. (THREATS OF NAUGHTY MAT)
JACKSON HAS BEEN ROLLING OVER A LOT LATELY BUT IT SEEMS AS IF HE HAS FORGOTTEN HOW. TODAY HE KEPT TRY AND JUST COULD FIGURE IT OUT EVEN WITH ALL HIS GRUNTING. TODAY IN SUNDAY SCHOOL HE WAS GETTING RESTLESS. JEREMY AND I BOTH TOOK TRYS STANDING UP WITH HIM IN THE BACK OF THE ROOM. THEN I TOLD JEREMY TO TRY PUTTING HIM ON THE FLOOR TO ROLL AROUND. AS SOON AS WE PUT HIM DOWN HE COULDN'T STOP TALKING AND SMILING AT US. IT WAS THE CUTEST THING EVER.
MAKAYLA IS SO EXCITED ABOUT DANCE AND SWIMMING LESSONS. I CAN'T HELP BUT FEEL HER EXCITMENT TOO. IT SHOULD BE A LOT OF FUN THIS SUMMER. WE'VE BEEN SWIMMING TWICE THIS SUMMER. I'VE BEEN SUPRISED AT HOW BRAVE MAKAYLA'S BEEN AND HOW TIMID ISAAC'S BEEN.

Tuesday night we went to a friends birthday party. The kids loved it. It was at a place called monkey bussiness. It had a bunch of moon walk toys for the kids to play in and a rock wall to climb. Makayla pretty good at rock climbing and enjoys it until she get to high than she gets a little worried. She's a lot like her mom.
Jackson fell asleep in the middle of the living room I was just going to leave him there but the kids stepped on him twice.

Makayla gave herself bangs today. I was in the shower ( it's either when I'm in the shower or feeding the baby that all mishaps happen and the house gets bulldosed) She's been asking for me to cut bangs and to cut her hair in a bob for the last year. I guess she was sick of waiting for me to agree. It's not so bad except they're way too thick. I'll have to grow 2/3 of them out again, what a nightmare it is to grow out bangs. She sure does think she's hot stuff now though. It could have been worse, like when Jillian or was it Bailey cut all their bang off.

Today we took Jackson to see Dr. Megahed. He's Jackson's nerosugeon. He thinks it would be O.K. to operate on Jackson at 6 months. That's only 3 months away. He's going to call and discuss it with Jackson's plastic surgeon, than give us a call. (the dr. said they do surguries like this one, a couple a times a month) which is more common than I thought. He told us that we caught it early on and that it's less surver than most his other cases.
It would be nice, for our nerves, to do the surgury in 3 months instead of 6. But it almost seems too near. He's 3month now and it's flown by so fast so I'm sure the next 3 months will come quickly also.

Sorry it's been awhile since my last posting. We had to get a new computer. Ours finially crashed to the point of not fixing it anymore. It was a bummer. Our computer was only 3 years old. I hope we don't have to replace our computers every 3 years, that could get really expensive.
Jackson got his first hair cut this week. He had so many bald patchs. I couldn't stand it any longer and just gave it a little trim. I'm tempted to give him another one.
Jeremy and Makayla have been getting Jackson to really laugh good lately. It's so cute. He snorts everytime. I think it's cause his nose is so crooked. He snorts when his excited, laughs, or is upset.
I've been going to the gym all this week it's been so nice. It's my hour and a half break everyday. It's the only break I get with the kids not taking naps anymore. Christy and another friend have been meeting me there. I'm pretty sure, I'm really going to struggle with the 5 K in two weeks but it'll be worth it.
We went swimming today. I forgot to take pictures. It was beautiful out (just a little breezy) The pool was freezing. It will warm up later in the summer. Makayla was so brave. She was swimming all over the pool ( with floaties on of course ) Isaac was a little scared if we tried to get him to float in the deep end. It was a lot of fun. Swim lesson at the public pools start in June we're going to put them both in lessons. Ballet starts in June also, for Makayla. She's so excited. She's been packing her ballet bag and school bag everyday.

This is the Easter picture of Jackson. The only one who would pose for the camera because he was asleep. Well If you're visiting our blog for the first time, I'm sure it's because Jeremy has been tell everyone he knows about our blog. There's a lot of pressure now to keep it current. The only problem is that I don't take enough pictures of the kids. Really, that's all people care about, are the pictures. I will continue to try and keep it current.
Life is sort of getting back to normal. Makayla's bored out of her mind at home all day with mom and Isaac teases her mercilessly. I don't think my floors have been mopped in at least a week.
Tonight Makayla said "I can't wait to have another baby. I just love babies." It was really cute but there's no chance of that happening soon. She'll just have to wait a little longer for another baby.
Tonight the whole family went outside and played baseball. Isaac is such a natural. Jeremy is so used to Isaac being so good that he won't really give Makayla a chance (much at first) but now she's hitting line drives at the pitcher (Jeremy) and sliding into first. It's so great to watch everyone having fun. I think it's the greatest feeling in the whole world. Even Jackson enjoys being outside and hearing everyone laughing, until it started raining on us.
Jeremy's sales men are here for the summer now. He only has 7 guys this year. I can't say I'm very sad about that at all. Hopefully he won't be as busy as he has been the last 4 summers. Last year he has 14 guys.
