Bye Bye

Jackson has started telling us when he's ready for bed. It's AWESOME! We'll be doing our bedtime routine of a bottle and books when all of a sudden he'll say "bye bye" and start waving. At first we were completely confused about what he was doing but now when he does this we put him in his crib and tell him good night. Then the whole time we are walking out of the room he lays in his crib waving and whispering bye bye. When we close the door we don't hear a peep from him until morning. I have to repeat myself and say it's AWESOME!

Crazy Boy with the Crazy Hair. Bub Bye

As a baby Jackson had the craziest hair. It would always be sticking up on end and for a while he was sporting a full on mohawk. As he's gotten older and his hair longer it's started to fall. There are those off days though if he sleeps on it just so or if his hair hasn't completely dried from the night before, a bit of the old Jackson crazy hair comes out to play.

Best Weekend

I had the best weekend!! The weather was actually pretty good most of the weekend and we took full advantage by taking Jackson to the park many many times.

The last time he was at the park he was 8 months old or so. The park adventure mostly consisted of the swing. Now that he's walking the park has become this whole new world of fun. He runs around, looks over and under things, is obsessed with the slide and points excitedly up in the air and says his own version of airplane.

I can't wait until next weekend when we can go back again.

Moving 2.0

Let me set the stage. We moved to Toronto in September and decided to rent a house for a year. It is by no means our dream house but it had an outdoor space for Campbell and a couple other items that were on our must list so here we are.

Cut to the beginning of February and our landlord knocks on our door as we are about to head out for Jackson's birthday party. He explains he'd like to talk to us and we agree on a day for him to return. Whenever your landlord wants to speak with you it can never be good and when he came back around a couple days later carrying a bottle of wine I knew we were screwed.

So apparently, our landlord had gotten a permit the year before to do work on our house but because of the market decided to rent it out instead. When going to renew the permit he was told no and he would need to start work by the end of June or lose the permit. So basically us living here was a huge problem.

However, our landlord, aka Daddy Warbucks also owns the house next door and has asked if we would be willing to move one house over. After looking at the house (which is nicer than ours), haggling on the rent and listing out a few other items we wanted it was all set.

So there you have it, our second move within a year. But this time it will only be a few feet to the east rather than thousands of miles north.

Let me start off by saying no we are not dead, yes I still have my arms and fingers and no my computer has not been infected with some horrible virus. My initial reaction is to say we've been busy but when I read stories like A Story of Two Moms that excuse just comes off as incredibly lame so I will make no excuses.

So much has happened in the time I last wrote:
- Jackson had his first birthday
- We had a house full of grandparents come for a visit
- We experienced a month of sickness
- We found out we are moving...again
- Jackson is a running and "talking" machine

With so much to catch up on and being that horrible blogger that I am I've challenged myself to post everyday for the month of April to get back in the swing of things. So until tomorrow here is a recent picture of Jackson. He's starting to look like an actual kid!
