Day 11

One of my goals for the new year was to clean out my closet, which had become a total nightmare.  Since I had Jackson, I have managed to lose all of my baby weight, and then some, through breast feeding.  This feels great, but it means that once again, none of my clothes fit!  I thought after nine months of every being a little too tight, I would finally be back in my regular wardrobe, but now there are a lot of things that are too big.  I know, I know, this is nothing to complain about, so I am not complaining.  I'm just explaining that this led me to make one hell of a mess out of my closet.  My habit was to pile up the reject clothes I tried on day-by-day and it finally became unbearable.  So, on Sunday, January 10th, I decided to pull every item of clothing out of the closet for a complete wardrobe review and reorganization.  This is the final result.  I refused to take a "before" photo.  I just hope it can stay like this for a while!

Day 10

My first attempt at homemade baby food using the new Baby Cook machine my mom gave us for Christmas.  I steamed apples, mango and peaches.  So far, Jackson is a big fan of the mango!

Day 9

This is what happens when your baby is trying to learn to crawl, and only knows how to go backwards! 

Day 8

Date Night!  Ryan and I had my mom come over to babysit Jackson while we went out to dinner with our friends, Jackie and John.  We had a long lively dinner at McCormick and Schmicks - yummy!

Day 7

On January 7, 2010, the Texas Longhorns played in the National Championship football game.  Ryan is a UT fan, to say the least, so their loss in that game was a sad event in our household. 

Day 6

Baby, it's cold outside!

Day 5

Jackson enjoys playing with his first set of blocks.  And his binky.
