HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

I hope everyone is feeling nice and plump after the weekend. We spent Thursday-Saturday at Granny Lin and Papa Bear's house and had a great time. Today we are back home to decorate for Christmas. I am still in my pj's and plan to stay in them until tomorrow morning.

Here are some pictures from my trip to Denver a few weeks ago. Cas had a business trip pop up, so I figured I would go visit Sophia and Sasha for a few days. Nat, Edie and Michael were there too (I think).

Also, here are some week 14 pictures. This set includes another photo shoot at the end- Jackson looks like he is giving the camera the evil eye in most of them. Oh well.

Name that Movie


In this picture, Jackson is recreating a famous scene from a Shelley Long movie. $1,000,000 Schrutebucks will go to the winner.

In all honesty, I only expect my sister, Laurie, to know this. Nat, no cheating.

Christmas List

To all family and Santa, Jackson needs more toys for Christmas.
Here are some 13 weeks pics of the kid. Just a warning: there are about 80 "portraits" of Jackson in here. We thought we were professional photographers last Sunday.

More Week 12 Pictures



Here are some additional Week 12 pictures. Jackson is getting more and more interactive each day. It's so much fun! We've gotten him to do that really deep belly-giggle a few times and it's probably my favorite sound.
He now shows us (with a big smile) that he knows who Mom and Dad are, but he doesn't seem to shy away from strangers, so that's good. . . for now.

Edie's Visit


Auntie Edie was here last weekend, which closes out the Auntie Aberle Tour for 2007. Here are her pictures from the weekend. As usual, I forgot to take our camera every time we left the house. Thank goodness she was prepared.

Edie visited us last January so we didn't do as much sightseeing. Just some shopping and a whole lot of being lazy. Jackson and I are going to Denver on Monday-Wednesday next week, so we'll be seeing her again in just a few days!

I am here to pump you up


Jackson wanted to be like his buddy, Ryan, so we got him a Bumbo. He still sort of looks at us like we are crazy every time we put him in it, but it's getting better.

As you can see from the picture, he is starting to use his hands much more. He is even starting to hold the bottle when we feed him and is constantly trying to put things in his mouth (great). This video is a few weeks old, but I had to share.

Riverdance

Jackson is getting more active each day. Here we have a video of him demonstrating his Riverdancing skills. Michael Flatley, don't quit your day job. Oh wait. . .I mean, Michael Flatley, maybe you should get a different day job.

Jackson practices his moves 5 times a day for about 45 minutes. When he is not doing the Riverdance, he can be seen lounging in his "crib", noshing on dairy and he has also been known to swing- in his swing.

Guess who's back...back again...Jackson's back...tell a friend

Just so everyone knows, Jackson's contract stipulates that we take 2 week breaks every so often from posting. It's sort of an over-exposure thing. He saw what happened to Dane Cook's career - he got really popular, really quickly and now everybody's sick of him and he does every movie offered to him. That's not how you build the "Jackson" brand.

During the two week blog break, Jackson has mostly been touring the Bay Area meeting his fans, signing autographs (read: spitting up on his fan's clothing) and performing for live audiences. It just got so crazy after the Hammer Time video - that video totally blew up (over 220 views on YouTube). We're ready to release his next video, a dance video called "Sexy Back". Choreographed by Missy, directed by Cas, backup dancing by Linda.



Here are some additional 3 month pictures
