jackson is a really friendly guy. for example, yesterday at church eric was holding him and talking to one of our pastors and jackson just leaned over to have our pastor hold him. right after that he did the same thing with one of our ushers. it seems like he does it more often with the guys...we've noticed how much he really likes guys (especially his daddy!). jackson also really like other babies and kids. this is really helpful on sundays when we have him go to the nursery during church and it was especially helpful last week during yearly meeting when i had to go to board meetings and it allowed me to go to the evening sessions and hear tony campolo without worrying about him.
so far his friendliness hasn't caused concern, but eric mentioned yesterday that we'll have to start talking to him about strangers soon. how much would he understand at this point? i'm not sure, but it doesn't hurt to start early.
