Guess I should have paid attention to Baby Einstein

So. . .Jackson gets to watch those Baby Einstein videos that teach sign language. I've just learned that I should have been paying better attention to them. He just looked at me and was moving his hands in a way that I know he's trying to sign something and I have no idea what he is talking about. Oh well- next time, Buddy.

Giants Game

We all went to a Giants Game a few weeks ago, thanks to Ashley, who did a great job of organizing everything.  Cas and I were a little worried about how Jackson would handle himself, but he actually made it to the 7th inning.  We thought that was pretty good.  The trick:  take about 15 relatives with you so that each person can entertain him and/or take him for a walk every 10 minutes or so.  No big deal.

Here are a few pictures from the day.

Jackson likes to play peek-a-boo in our living room curtains.  Every now and then, it will get really quiet in there, so I'll look around the corner to make sure he's not doing anything illegal (by Mom standards, of course).  There he'll be, covered in curtains, waiting to be found.   Here are a few more 12 month pics of the kiddo.

Long overdue: Pictures from Jackson's birthday party

Here is a batch of pictures from Jackson's 1st birthday party. We just got back from a fun weekend in Lake Tahoe (yes, I have pictures). Jackson slept surprisingly well for being in a new place, so we were excited about that. He loved throwing rocks into the lake- here is a teaser. . .
