Jackson says

Jackson has become quite the talker. I started trying to write down the words he knows, but honestly he knows so many, and learns more each day, that I won’t be able to list them all. He is an enthusiastic talker, and you can see the excitement on his face when he is able to communicate. 

For today, here’s what Jackson says:

Annkk oooo (Thank you)

Wew wum (welcome)

Luuu yoooo or yuvvvooo (love you)

Gone

Jay CUP (Jacob–his favorite word!)

Apoo (apple–or any other fruit)

Uh oh 

Bop bop

Mimi

Mama

Dada

Mean! (Used when jacob takes something from him)

Men! (Amen)

Wawa (water)

Juuu (juice)

‘Poon (spoon)

Cup 

Boo!

Baby

Shoe

Ock

Yuck

Eww! (He says this a lot)

Yum

Boo (bootie)

Ouch

Boom

Baby

Me

Yoap (soap/lotion)

Mean

Ice (rice)

Eat eat eat eat!

Msss (messy)

Bean 

Nana (banana)

Hot

Mine

Nap

Pho’ (phone)

Eh-boh (elbow)

Uck (truck)

Cuh (cut)

Bah (box)

Boon (balloon)

Mo’ (more)

Fffff (flower)

Bah (bar = clif z bar)

Meeeek (milk)

Bubble
He also will tell me a secret sometimes, because he’s had his brother or I whisper in his ear, and he whispers baby gibberish into my ear so sweetly. 

He really likes to tell people they are stinky by waving his hand in the air (like you might wave the smell away from your nose) and saying “eewww!” It was his first title joke: he would point at me and do the stinky hand wave and laugh and laugh. 

Josh likes to ask him for a big hug, during which he (Josh) will make a sound to indicate his great exertion. When you ask Jackson for a big hug he does the same, hugging you and letting out an “argh!”

Mother’s Day Hike

Josh knows just what I want to do on Mother’s Day, so we spent the morning hiking to the dripping cave where the Flores Daniel Gang used to hang out. There are still holes in the ceiling of the cave from pegs the robbers had installed to hold their supplies and loot. It’s about 5 mikes round trip, most of which jacob did on foot. It was a beautiful day.

Baby boy gets his first haircut 😭

I’ve been holding out on this, folks. 

The first haircut is a big milestone, and Jackson has these darling baby curls, and once you cut them they are gone. 

Sigh. 

The boys are in a wedding this weekend, and I couldn’t have them looking sloppy, so it was time. Also, josh had been threatening me that he would take Jackson to the barber himself. I decided we should do it right.

Experienced baseball coach Bop takes some time to show jacob and Kyle (our next-doorneighbor) how to swing a bat. 🙂
