Here is Jackson in his "Kiss me I'm Irish" shirt. He was not very into taking pictures so this is the best one we got were you could actually read the shirt. But I will warn you if you kiss him you are going to get kissed back and he gives wet kisses!!!
We took this picture before we left the Hard Rock Casino in Biloxi. Of course if you need a picture taken in a casino at 8:30 in the morning the only person you will find is a senior citizen getting off of a bus. It took two different groups to get this one and this was not exactly the picture I wanted but hey at least I got something. My two favorite boys in their St. Patrick's Day shirts. Chad got his shirt in Ireland at the famous Temple Bar and Jackson's shirt was purchased while he was still safely tucked away in my tummy. I think my boys look good in green!!

I thought that I would try to recap my thoughts about Jackson on this momentous 2/3rds of a year birthday. Well you don't have to look too hard to see Jackson looks just like his Dad. Maybe his hair is going to end up a little lighter than it is now but not much. (Now I do realize that for his hair to get as light as mine he would need to visit the salon every 8 weeks so no I don't expect that!!) But he does look so much like his Daddy that I do often look at my C-section scar and recall he is mine too! He however could have my temper. So those of you who know me well yes that means he could get mad at the drop of a hat and he might stay mad for a while. Chad's family says this is also a Matthews trait too so he may have it double. But he did not get this from Chad, because everyone knows Chad is the most laid back, calm and easy going person I know. Jackson has 2 teeth in right now with one more to come in the next few days and another soon there after. So do not put your finger in his mouth cause he will assume it is food and take a bite. (This is not something I will punish him for you are the adult and you should not have stuck it in there) Speaking of food we are having a few eating issues. Jackson loves his baby food and he loves his table food what he does not love is his bottle. In fact he hates it. So if you have a suggestion about this let me know. I will try most anything. I don't think it is the bottle itself because he also does not like his milk from a sippy cup either. (I tasted the formula and personally do not blame him but I know he needs it)
Here are a few pictures I have from earlier this week of my sweet baby boy.
We took this picture behind the chamber here in Scottsboro now this is the only good one I got because all he wanted to do was play with the rocks.

Jackson has a wonderful new skill. He can say "Mama"!!! Yep Mama is his 1st word. Now some of you may say no children's 1st word is always Dada well not mine!! And this is very fair since he looks just like his Daddy. For about a week off and on I would think I heard him say it especially when he wants something or he can't see me. However I knew it was a little early for him to talk so I doubted myself. But I guess he has heard plenty of his Mommy talking so I guess the stimulation works. So this morning when he got home from MeMaw and Papa's he said it as soon as he saw me and when I walked away he said it several more times till I came back where he could see me. So I decided that if I could get it on video it would be proof to myself that he is saying it. So I took the 1st video and he said it so I took a few more video's and he said it on them too so here is the 1st video I took. I guess you can be the judge.
