Alamo Bowl

I attended the Alamo Bowl with my mother, Aunt Lanna and Uncle Les in San Antonio this weekend. We had a wonderful time, especially since it was such a great game and we won! The weather was amazing and we all had so much fun with the tons of other Baylor fans that took over the Riverwalk! We just happened to get a glimpse of Robert Griffin III as he was loading the team bus before the game, very exciting for us!

 Lunch at Landry's on the River.

 Yeah, we made posters!

I even ran into my Baylor roomate, Britni, and her 3 month old son, Grant. So precious!

We won!
Baylor-67 Washington- 56

16 months old

Jackson has learned to say "NO" while shaking his head.  It is helpful to know what he wants a bit more than before. At 16 months he is saying a definite "NO" to any yes or no question you ask him, then he giggles. So stinking cute.
He has been in time out for the first time this past month twice for unplugging the Christmas tree and then trying to plug it back in, I know he is just curious but it is too dangerous.  He was put in his crib for 1 minute and screamed the entire minute but just wanted me to hold him after I got him out of it, like he didn't want me to be mad at him, pretty sweet!

He is down to 1 afternoon nap a day that lasts for 1.5 hours usually.

He is great a peek a boo and covering his own eyes.

He can put shaped blocks through the correct holes.

When playing with pretend food he smacks his lips and pretends to eat it.

Loves sesame street and Elmo
Watches Veggie Tales Jonah daily in the car

Favorite book is "Brown bear, brown bear what do you see?"

Loves turkey hot dogs

Doing really well with self play and talks to his toys a lot.
