Oh Boy, so not ready for this! So yesterday after Jackson decided to throw all of his toys all around the living room, after being told not to (multiple times) he got put in Time Out. Time Out consists of Jackson being told what he did wrong and then being put into his crib for 1 minute with the door closed. When 1 mintue is up we go back into his room, talk about what it was that was "naughty", we hug and kiss, he says he is sorry and it is done. This is usually just the right amount of time alone that it will curb whatever it is that he was doing that was naughty and he will play nice again. Well about 35 seconds into Time Out, I hear a loud thud and then crying. I open up Jackson's door and what do I find directly on the other side- Jackson. Yep, he climbed out of bed. He isn't even 2 yet! I scooped him up in my arms to comfort him, because he was indeed shocked at his accomplishment.
I asked him how in the world he got out of bed, which then brought huge smiles inbetween the sobs, he points to his crib and said "Mommy, I climb."
"I see that", I told him.

Well the holidays are finally over and it is time to begin a new year. 2009 is going to be a good one- I can feel it.
Christmas was so, so much fun this year. Jackson really got into it. Opening presents was definately the high point for him, for sure! It was also the year of trains, trucks and tractors. This kid is in heaven! His car collection has tripled, and then some! Everyday this is his most favorite game, and keeps him happy and entertained forever! So thank you to everyone for making all of his dreams come true this Christmas. We have a very happy little boy in this house.
I have so much more to share but need to get us all ready for one last Christmas party with my Uncle Allen and Aunt Joanne. So check back later.
Happy New Year!
