I am so very very excited that you are coming home tomorrow. I've missed you to the moon and back! Sometimes I would cry and Mama would think it was because I was hungry or tired but really it was because I was missing you real bad.
I had a very dirty day today. Mama came into my room to start the day and my jammies were covered in poop! Not sick poop like before but peanut butter poop. I don't think Mama was very happy this morning like I was. We were both VERY sleepy though. We talked A LOT all night long, well really I did most of the talking. I was so tired that I fell asleep on the way to school.
I had bananas for morning snack today. Miss. Cassandra didn't put it with cereal so it was very tasty. I ate it all up! I then had tons of fun playing in the exasaucer but then I pooped again and they had to take it away :( All my friends were mad at me cause no one could play in it cause they had to wash my poop away.
I also napped two whole times for a long time and I drank all of my bottles. After I drank one of my bottles I pooped again! But this time I got to keep on my same outfit. Miss. Cassandra asked me what in the world have I been eating. I told her bananas, remember?!?
It rained here today. I got to go outside and watch the rain fall down. Then before I knew it it was the end of the day. I think I was so excited that Mama was coming that I pooped again!! Miss. Cassandra was cleaning me up when Mama came to get me. So see, it was a VERY dirty day!
I'm going to go to sleep so fast tonight so that it will be tomorrow sooner so you will be home to give me kisses and cuddles.
I love you so much Mommy!

Today was AMAZING!!I had a really really scary dream this morning, I was so scared that I screamed and screamed and screamed so Mama took me to the big bed with her and Campbell. We went back to sleep and I didn't have anymore bad dreams. Also I didn't poop my pants the whole night!!
Mama and Miss Erin had a BIG talk with me at school this morning. They told me that I had to promise to take a big nap today. So guess what? I DID! I slept for a whole hour this morning and I even took an afternoon nap. Miss. Cassandra gave me cereal with pears for morning snack, it was so sooo gross I gagged lots. But then she just gave me some pears and I ate it all up! So tasty! No more cereal please.
Mommy, I have a secret. I'm in love. There is a girl in my class named Gretchen. She is very very cute. So today to show her how much I love her I kept taking her toys away from her. I think tomorrow I might kick her to show her how I feel.
My favoritest part of the day was going for a buggy ride. Remember when I first went to school and I had to ride in the back of the buggy sitting in a baby seat?!? Not anymore!! I got to be a big boy and sit in the the front.
I don't know if Mama's told you yet but I have been such a good boy when I go to bed. After Mama feeds me and rocks me and reads me a book she puts me in my crib and I go to sleep right away! I like to sleep on my side all the time now, sometimes she forgets so I have to roll on my side myself. Mama says only two more sleeps and you come home. I'm so excited!!

My letter is going to be very little because Mama says I have to go to bed NOW!
I don't know if Mama told you but I went back to school today!! I wanted to go back sooo bad so I could see my friends again and show everyone how I can roll over whenever I want. I was so excited that I forgot that I now like bananas, so when it was time for morning snack and I got rice cereal and bananas I made a yucky face and spit it out instead of saying yummy. I'm so mad at myself!!
I was having so much fun that I just didn't want to nap at all today. Miss. Cassandra tried to make me sleep and that made me VERY mad. So I yelled sooo loud. Miss. Cassandra tattle tailed on me and told Mama I only slept for 30min. I love Miss. Cassandra a whole bunch but I don't like that she told on me. So because she told Mama, the whole way home all I heard was how tired I looked and that I was going to bed as soon as we got home. That means no dinner and no bath time :( I only get to drink my milk and get cuddles tonight.
Do I look sleepy?? I don't think so!
Mama says times up and I got to go to bed now.
Love you bunches!

I want to say how much I love you and miss you and how you are my favoritest Mommy.
Today was a very very bad day. I'm mad at Mama, I'm mad at Campbell, I'm mad at the iguana on my exasaucer and I'm mad at my bathtub Tigger. I know if you were here I wouldn't be mad at you cause you are the bestest.
I was sound asleep this morning when Mama comes into my room and wakes me up because she said she heard me poop REALLY LOUD over the monitor and it woke her up. When she lifted me out of my crib there was poop dripping everywhere!! It was on me, on my jammies, on my sheets, EVERYWHERE! I felt bad that I pooped my pants again but now I'm glad I did cause I'm mad at Mama! I had such a bad day and Mama didn't try and help me at all!!!
She put me in the exasaucer to play but then I tried to put the iguana in my mouth but he doesn't want to go in my mouth so I yell at him, "IGUANA GET IN MY MOUTH!" but he still doesn't listen so I got more mad and Mama said no more exasaucer. So then Mama says she'll play with me on the floor. She gets all MY toys out and puts them down and we have so much fun playing but then Campbell comes and takes MY toys away. So I yell at him, "CAMPBELL BRING BACK MY TOYS!" but he doesn't listen to me either so I got more mad and Mama said no more floor time. Oh...here is proof..See me roll over to see Campbell with all MY toys?!?
Mama says I was acting mad cause I was tired so I yelled at her too "NO MAMA, I'M NOT TIRED!". Mama said we all needed to take a chill pill so she packed Campbell and me up in the car and we went for a drive. I didn't want to have anything to do with Mama and Campbell because I was sooo mad at them so I took a nap. But I held on to my toy real tight so Campbell wouldn't try and steal it when I was sleeping.
Then at dinnertime Mama made me butternut squash. I think she should have asked me first what I wanted so even though I love butternut squash when she gave it to me I spit it out and even made a gagging face. So I yelled at her again "BUTTERNUT SQUASH IS GROSS MAMA!!" I know that if you were here Mommy you would have asked me what I wanted because you are a good Mommy.
So Mama says that she thinks we should have a bath and go to bed. I was so excited because I was going to play with my favoritest toy, bathtub Tigger. But when we get in the bath he kept floating away from me no matter how many times Mama brought him to me. So I had to yell at him too!
I'm very tired from all of my yelling today so I'm going to go to bed and dream of you Mommy cause I love you the most!
Hugs and Kisses,

I'm so sorry I didn't write you yesterday. Mama got the sickness too :( I know I shouldn't say this but I had sooooo much fun when Mama and I had the sickness. She built a fort in the bathroom with pillows and blankets and we played in there for awhile, I drank lots and lots of milk cause Mama said I needed to cause I keep pooping my pants. But best of all Auntie JD came by today to look after me, we had a blast! I think Mama went and took a nap and had a shower. I know for sure she had a shower cause the next time I saw her she gave me lots of cuddles and she smelled WAY better.
Remember how I said I'm eating lots and lots? I'm drinking so much that Mama has to feed me milk from the bottle. She takes these bags out of this cold place and tells me I'm drinking liquid gold. At first I was soooo excited to drink liquid gold, but then Mama gave it to me and it tasted like normal milk. I didn't want to hurt her feelings so I just drank the whole bottle and smiled real big. Mama's drinking bottles too, we went to the store and she got these bottles that are all different colors. She says they will help her feel better cause they have electricity in them. But I bet electricity will taste the same as liquid gold, so I'm fine with just drinking my milk.
I don't know if Mama told you yet but I'm rolling over ALL THE TIME! Mama will put me on my back and then...BAM I'm on my tummy. I know they say Back is Best but I think they should say Tummy is TOTALLY AWESOME, cause it is. I don't know how I kept getting stuck on my arm this whole time?!? Rolling over is super easy. But I did get scared last night when I rolled over in my crib and got stuck on my tummy. So scary. I cried and Mama put me back on my side and I went back to sleep.
I better go and check to make sure Mama is doing okay. I love you and can't wait until you come home.

Oh Mommy, Mommy, Mommy. I got the sickness :( I can't stop pooping my pants. I even puked up some of my breakfast. I have to tell you that rice cereal tastes the same coming up as it does going down. I don't think I want to eat rice cereal anymore.
So far I have been through 3 outfits. My favoritest jammies, a onesie that Mama says you hate and then Mama finally thought she outsmarted me and just had me wear a t-shirt but then I had a REALLY explosive watery poop and that outfit had to go into the laundry too. Mama said we are playing a fun new game today called, "Don't poop on Mama" but I don't think it's a game, I think Mama is scared of me. Whenever I sit or lay down on something she always makes sure there's a towel underneath me. She's had to change my diapers LOTS!
Mama took me to the doctors today too. In case I haven't told you, I don't like it there. When I go there they shove things in my different holes or poke me with things that make me cry. I was a big boy today though and didn't cry once. I'm so sad,the doctor said I can't see my friends again until Monday BUT that means I get to be with Mama all day today, tomorrow and the weekend!!
I was so excited for bath time with Mama so that I could play with Tigger again but Mama didn't give me a bath in the big bath like normal, she put me in the baby bath. I told her I wasn't a baby but she said I was and we fought again and bath time was over quickly. Don't worry about us though, we made up again when she fed me and rocked me to sleep.

Mama and I are fighting. She is being so unfair!!! Last night at 2:00am she told me I was such a good boy for letting her sleep 3 hours, so good that I should get a gold star. But when I woke her up every hour after that to talk about it she took my gold star away :( She doesn't understand! I'm all by myself in my room with no one to talk to about the gold star so I have to bring her back in to talk. When I woke up this morning I gave her a BIG smile to see if she would give me my star back, I think it worked because she gave me a big smile too. But then I peed on your big bed and pooed my pants and ruined another outfit on the way to school this morning so now I don't think I'll ever see my gold star again :( Can you talk to her for me???
I had a great day at school today. I played a lot on the floor and when my friends crawled by I would try to grab them. The best part was when Mama surprised me and came in during her lunch break to give me lots of kisses, cuddles and milk. Oh! I almost forgot. I had snack time with the other babies. I had oat cereal and pears. Miss. Cassandra said I could stop helping her put my spoon in my mouth but I think it makes me look like a big boy.
Almost my whole class went home today because they were sick. There was puke and poo EVERYWHERE! Gretchen and I were the last babies standing. I hope I don't get it and have to stay home tomorrow :(
Mama gave me bananas for dinner. Remember when I didn't like bananas? What was I thinking?!? I LOVE bananas. Mama made them from scratch for me and they were very yummy in my tummy. Mama says I have to go to bed on time tonight because she wants me to get lots of sleep so I don't get sick like my friends. I'm going to be such a good boy and go to sleep right away.
P.S. Remember to ask her about the star.

I slept like poo poo last night. At 4:00am Mama finally took me to bed with her. It was awesome! I went to sleep and could wake up to eat a little snack whenever I wanted and then go back to sleep again. I wish I could do this EVERY NIGHT!! We slept until 8:00am. I think mama was late because I saw her running around a lot while I played in my exasaucer.
Speaking of poo poo I had to go to the bathroom soooo bad on the way to daycare. I just couldn't hold it in anymore. It was gross!!! Some of it even got on my clothes and the car seat. Mama doesn't know it yet but I also pooped on my toy keys and threw them into the car for her to find later. Tee Hee!
I had a great day at daycare. I played in the donut and exasaucer. My favorite part was watching Miss. Becky blow bubbles. She blew them all around me. My friends would crawl over and pop them. I can't wait until I'm old enough to crawl.
Mama took me out early today and I got to visit with all her friends at work. I was so happy and was a real charmer. They were all smiling and laughing at me. I was so tuckered out from all my flirting that I fell asleep on the way home again.
Tonight for dinner I had oat cereal and pears. It was very tasty! I don't think mama made enough, I wanted seconds. My favorite part was taking a bath with Tigger!! I chewed on his tail the whole time.
Mama says it's time for bed.
P.S. I don't want to go to bed!! I think I'll tell her how I feel by using my outdoor voice.

Amy is out of town until next Thursday so Jackson is writing her daily letters to let her know what he's been up to every day.
I'm not feeling very well today. I have the sniffles and a temperature of 99.8. I was pretty mellow today. I spent a lot of time playing on my tummy and I also enjoyed trying to eat Sarah's skirt. Mama wanted me to tell you I only had one nap today from 11-12. I was soooo tired I fell asleep on the way home and mama had to wake me up to eat dinner. I had squash...yummy! I heard mama talk to my teacher about eating big boy food at school. I think when I feel better I might get to eat breakfast with the other kids!!! I'm soooo excited.
Yawn...I'm super tired. I'm going to take a quick bath, cry for a little bit, roll onto my side and go to sleep.
I love you Mommy!

Today's ride to daycare was heinous, traffic was at a stand still and Jackson was none to pleased. There is nothing worse than being stuck in the car, not moving with a screaming baby. You feel so helpless. So the only thing I could do was sing. Sing and sing and sing. I sang Cindy Lauper's True Colors (it's one of Jack's favorite songs) for 20 min. until we got to daycare. Totally did the trick!

I'm hoping we have finally solved the mystery of sucky sleeper Jack. On Friday I got an email for Jack's daycare announcing the arrival of his first tooth, well teeth actually. Jack is now sprouting 2 pearly whites in the lower front of his mouth. They have just busted through so they are elusive to capture on film, but we'll try. Our baby is growing up WAY to fast :(

Normally Foto Friday is a focus on Jackson, but since today is Amy's and my 3rd wedding anniversary I thought I would share a wedding picture along with one of Jack.
This picture was taken this morning. When I took him out to go to daycare he cried and cried because he was having so much fun.

We had the worst experience EVER coming back from Toronto while going through U.S. customs. Since of course we aren't a family by U.S. standards Amy went through on her customs form and Jack and I went together on my customs form. I truly believe part of the training process when hiring for a customs officer is to have them watch hours of footage of cute animals and even cuter babies, then every time they even show a hint of a smile they are electrocuted so that they are eventually programmed to be assholes.
Jack and I get up to our guy and I'm asked for some some of my travel/work documents. I didn't know what forms he was talking about and was curtly told that I didn't fill out one of my forms and so I needed to go back to the end of the line to get the additional document. Now I was polite as can be because I know that this person is my judge and jury for letting me into the country. I nicely ask him if I could get Jack cleared to go through and hand him off to his other mom so that I can go through the line again etc. since I didn't think Jack would make it through the wait again. At which point I was asked, "Who is his real mother?". I was so shocked by his question that it took all of my power not to get angry because once again judge/jury kept running through my head. Well he basically said no I wasn't allowed to hand Jack off and that I would need to go and get the form before I was allowed to pass though. The topper for me was when he was analyzing Jack's birth certificate (which we thankfully brought with us) and started questioning me about why Jack's last name is different than my last name. Grrrr.
In the meantime Amy is waiting for Jack and I not sure what is going on, scared that we weren't being allowed in for some reason. She was begging for them to let her back through so that she could get to us and at the very least bring Jack through with her. When she explained that her son was over on the other side, she was barked at and told they didn't care who he was and that she needed to keep moving.
Needless to say we are happy to be home but don't feel very welcomed.
