Baby Wranglin

Ok. So in the last month-since it has taken me a month to do another blog post, several interesting events have taken place--of course-.  About 1 month ago, Jackson decided to run a 105 temperature so we went to children's hospital in the middle of the night.  Since I did not have a store of milk kept and since Steven was terrified that Jackson was extremely ill.  We took both babies and hoped for the best.  The staff at Children's Hosptial downtown was not the least bit concerned about his high temperature.  We were shocked that they were ok with a 105.  Needless to say, we brought him home and fed him some tylenol and ibuprofen for a few days and he was fine.  Hank never caught the disease. 
Hank has figured out how to roll over with ease.  A photographer that Mia knows came to take pics of the boys a week ago. She has not posted all of the pics---just these two.  They are cut though.  Jackson did an amazing job.  I know she got some killer shots of him. I will post as soon as she releases them.  Hank is sleeping well at night but neither baby wants to nap during the day.  I have decided to put the skids on their efforts to overturn my power.  Jack has the option to nap in "daddy's bed" or his bed.  If he acts silly in daddy's bed, he must nap in his own bed. Today it worked.  I am holding out hope that it will last.  Hank on the other hand, is trying to overthrow me.  

My sweet Jackson is talking in 2-3 word sentences--pretty consistently.  He is so smart.  He can generalize things now--he knows that all men are "daddy's" and that all men wearing ties are going to work.  He is very aware of danger and knows "hot" and "fall" and "hurt" and "boo boo".   He knows that a "snack" can mean many different things and knows that we act like a "big boy" when we go to a resturaunt. 
And he knows to be "easy" with the baby, although he has a different approach in mind at times.  I wonder if Hank will out grow him and put him in his place!
Jackson is sweet with his baby brother and gives him hugs and kisses.  He makes Hank laugh!   He likes to push him in the stroller.  I love it.  Hank is such an easy going baby.
