we're back home. jackson and i spent the last week at his grammy and papa's in seattle. we had a really good time. our week even included a visit with my good friend, lauren and her son, caleb (we only got to see troy [lauren's husband] for a little, since he had to work). probably one of the biggest highlights for me was that jackson slept through the night 5 out of our 6 nights there. (i mean through the 11-12 hours!) unfortunately that did not happen last night. i'm hoping the long car ride home, getting to bed late and being a little cold was what caused the change and that tonight and forevermore he'll sleep through the night...i'll keep you posted! there were lots of other fun things as well. it was fun to watch jackson interact with grammy and papa. he doesn't get to see them often enough, but it took no time for him to warm up to them and keep them busy chasing him around. one of the first things we did when we got there was baby-proof the house. this was really nice, since my boy is quite the adventurer and is constantly exploring everything. with the house basically baby-proof, he was able to explore and we didn't have to constantly be telling him no.
the day i spent with lauren and caleb was also really fun. caleb and jackson are less than 2 weeks apart, so it was fun to watch them interact. lauren took me to her favorite tea shop (part of my birthday present) and we got to just hang out and chat and try to keep up with 2 9-month olds.

so, now we're going to try to get back to our at-home routine...and hopefully that good sleeping at night!

here are some pictures from the week:

mom was fixing some pants for me and jackson got such a kick out of the sewing machine. i'm not sure what it was that he found so funny, but he laughed and laughed
jackson's great-grandma, doris made this hat...a little big for now, but still oh-so cute
