Whenever Jackson is playing in the backyard, I periodically check on him through the kitchen window to see if he is OK. At one point when I looked out the window I cracked up. He was sunbathing on the slide (see picture below).
Later that afternoon I really wanted to take a nap when Peyton passed out for his. Since we started Jackson on his ADHD meds, he hasn't been taking a nap at all. So I turned on some cartoons and told him that I was going to lay down for a while and he could watch TV. Shortly after I climbed into bed, there was Jackson climbing in bed with me wanting to take a nap too. So we cuddled in bed for a while as he kept tossing and turning and breathing hard when I finally said, "Jackson, please stop moving because you keep waking me up." To which he replied, "I can't help it Daddy, this is how I fall asleep!" LOL. The kid has an answer for everything. Maybe he'll be a politician when he grows up! Anyway, a few minutes later he asked if he could get up to go watch cartoons again. I laughed and said that was fine. It was still sweet of him to want to try and sleep with me for while.
As I close this entry, I thought it would be fun to share a video we took of Jackson this past Christmas at Mamaw's house. He was debuting his song, "Christmas, Everyday" along with an interpretive dance. It's very cute! Enjoy!
