Jackson is 6 1/2 weeks old!

Time has flown by these past few weeks.  I can't believe that in a week and a half, I'll be back to work.  I'm ready to get out of the house though...I'm feeling a little bit clausterphobic!  I will be sad to leave my little guy, but I'm sure I'll be so excited everyday to come home and see him.

He has started SMILING!  A LOT!  Brock discovered that if you tickle his little neck, and make funny noises he'll get a big grin on his face :)  And usually once he starts, they just keep coming.  It is about the cutest thing I've ever seen!  Sometimes my eyes just water up, because he is just so gosh darn cute, and we are such lucky parents to have such a happy, healthy, beautiful child.

We are thinking that he will start crawling super early, because he is such a strong little bugger!  When I hold him up on my shoulder, he is always trying to crawl up me.  He pushes his little legs into my belly, and just kind of pushes off.  I have to be really careful that I've got a good grip on him, because if not, he is gonna crawl right over the top of me!  And when we lay him out on a blanket on the floor, he is such a wiggly worm.  He is determined to roll over!  He gets pretty close, but no cigar.  I'm sure it'll happen before we know it though.  Wow,  I can't believe how big he's getting!  It feels like we were in the hospital yesterday, and now he's trying to roll over!

At the doctor last week, he weighed 10 pounds 15 ounces.  I'm sure he's well over 11 pounds now!  He's gained over 2 pounds since he was born.
