Memory TAG

1. Add a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you know me or Jack a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. I can't wait to see what people remember.
It'll be fun!

party time...

Jack snuggling with his new best friend

I graduated on Saturday from IADT with my bachelors in Merchandising... it only took me 10 years, 3 schools in 3 different states, and 5 degree changes. Yahoo! (i was chosen to represent the school on their new website - check here) For those of you who don't know, i got my associates in fashion design & marketing... then went back to get my bachelors after realizing that i HATE to sew! I actually finished up in December right before jack was born, perfect timing huh!

So we all went out to lunch after my graduation to Maggiano's, then went to mom & dad's for a little graduation party... more pics to follow soon! it was a blast!! Oh, this is the Sponge Bob pillow that Melissa just got Jack... and he LOVES to snuggle with it already!!

Friday night was Grand's 76th birthday party... we all had so much fun celebrating his life and watching the slide show that Jamey boy made.
And it was soooooo great to see Ashley & uncle Dave!

Yeah, can you tell i am a little obsessed with monogramming his outfits

We went to see Rick & Nick play at Green Iguana last Wednesday night, i am not sure if it was the Akousticks or Downtown Possum (the name of rick's two bands) - but they were great! Jack was making his new funny face all night long & trying to eat his feet!

Visitors from Texas & Alabama...

Me & my "little" brothers
Aunt Sue
Honey enjoying her "Jack Jack" time

So Tiger & Carolyn came in town this weekend along with their kids and Aunt Sue. We had so much fun visiting with everyone, trying Tiger's awesome homemade BBQ, and eating at our favorite Japanese steakhouse. This video is of Jack watching the Hibachi chef in complete amazement... it was so cute to capture!!

My baby is growing up...

look who is sitting up... in the bouncy seat
Look who is making faces... showing us more & more personality every day
Look who is using a high chair... for the first time ever.
This week was monumental for us because Jack started eating rice cereal, sleeping EIGHT consecutive hours, and sitting up on his own! Plus, when we went to the Dr. they said he was "off the charts" for being only 5 months and 22 pounds... but "Average for a 12 month old!" Crazy... hopefully now that he is rolling around and standing up in his bouncy exerciser he will burn off some off that chunkiness:) We love him soooooo much and have truly enjoyed each and every moment with our little prince!!!

Miss Katie

One of Jack's girlfriends, Miss Katie, came to visit us yesterday... so we had to take some cute pics of them sitting on the couch together and making the most adorable faces! Katie is almost 1 year and she weighs the same as jack who is only 5 months - He is such a chunky monkey! Isn't she BEAUTIFUL!!!
