first of all...i'm waiting patiently for my new favorite thing to arrive. so in the meantime i thought i'd update a little more...
we went to baton rouge for [jack's cousin] paul's wedding on april 20th. so, we haven't had our everyday camera since that day. at least there were pictures on our camera so they knew who it belonged to. wonder what they thought of jackson posing in his underoos...at least it wasn't jack posing in his underwear...haha...just kidding. but once i did dare jack to run outside on our porch naked and he did, i locked him out and took pictures of him. i'll post those tomorrow. what? no way...i think i deleted them.
we took uncle pootz' car because it had a dvd player. that is the reason we had a calm trip...they loved the dvd player. mind you it is now july 11th and in this picture jackson was potty trained on april 19th. today he is still struggling with going #1 on the potty. i think we have #2 down...but i said that about #1 in april. this little guy likes to do what he wants to do. jack is introducing him to peeing in the bushes. jackson loved it. if only i had a green thumb he might be fully potty trained - but we'd have dead plants. we took jackson to lsu [cookie's alma mater] to see mike the tiger. unfortunately this one passed away a month or so ago - maybe it was from all the energy he exerted trying to get jackson while holden put him over the cage. haha...just kidding...that one was for my mom. she probably had a heart attack right now. feel free to check on her: email@example.com
sidenote: jackson can say the lsu fight song which most of the sages will be proud to hear and he's in the process of learning hot boudin, cold couscous, come on tigers, push, push, push. i tried to teach him the a&m fight song but yelling "sounds like hell" will have to wait until later. we'll let his uncle teach him the ut fight song next and then save the best for last.
we had a blast at the crawfish boil - it was so good [understatement]. they know how to do it there. the process of boiling crawfish is like us scrambling eggs. they make it seem so effortless and just part of their every week routine [during crawfish season] - andy [paul's brother] even made a special table for paul as a wedding gift...a table just for eat ting crawfish. it was a table for 12 or more to stand at with a hole in the middle for the trash. coolest table ever.
jackson played with cars that nancy had given him and annie just had fun exploring and maybe eating some rocks. they both ate lots of raising cane's. we had a brief bout of addiction of raising canes right before going to louisiana...mostly because it reminded me of layne's from a&m. anyhow...funny situation that the owner was a groomsman in paul's wedding. yummy!no pictures from the wedding - but a funny story. jackson had a great time at the wedding. he loved dancing, eating the food and running around with wes [his 4 year old cousin]. well, he saw what he thought was coke. this was holden's coke so it had some crown in it. jackson took a tiny sip from the straw and instead of the little attitude look he thought he was going to give me of "i just had a sip of coke" looked at me with this horrible look of "that's not what coke is supposed to taste like" with his eyes in almost a teary state. he was so confused. i think he slept pretty soundly that night...haha...again just kidding. but he probably did sleep well in his king size bed. jack and i had to leave at 5am the next morning to head to houston for a wedding so we slept on the pull-out couch to not wake the kids up in the morning. so, i'm sure jackson got a good night's rest.
