Eat with mommy…

by Kyle Smith

Tried to get him to say “eat with mommy” but I couldn’t get him to say it on video. He kept telling me “daddy eat mommy” like it was an order… oh well…he’s still the cutest kid ever!

Fun with paper…

by Kyle Smith

To explain why he has the shiny tissue paper in his pants, when Nicole first opened her gift she put the paper in his shorts and he chased it around like a dog chases it’s tail. We tried to recreate it but he learned from his past…

Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

by Kyle Smith

Jackson turns 6 months today! It’s amazing how fast he’s growing. Here are some of the “big boy” things he’s doing now:

  • Sitting up (still a little wobbly but he’s getting there)
  • Eating baby food (he’s been eating cereal and stage one food for a while now and the doc said he’s ready for stage 2)
  • He has both his bottom front teeth
  • Rolling over (from back to stomach and from stomach to back)
  • Talking (well making noises, but Nicole and I honestly think he says “I love you” every now and then)
  • Getting up on his knees and rocking (give him a few more days and he’ll be crawling)

So he’s pretty much the coolest kid ever, but I’m not sure I can handle all this growing up stuff. If he keeps it up I guess I’ll have to make him get a job soon…

Home sweet home…

by Kyle Smith

Well as many of you know we have moved into our new house. We’re not completely unpacked, but we’re moved in. Speaking of moving in, this move was the greatest experience of my entire life; in fact, it changed my entire outlook on life. I realized that over the past years I had been wasting my time and effort on such frivolous things such as picking up boxes, carrying couches, lifting mattresses, taking apart beds, etc. This time I had the revelation of hiring movers, and let me just tell ya, “It’s WORTH it!!” We were moved out of our second story apartment and into our new house (which is about 45 minutes to an hour drive from our apt.) in less than 4 hours. It cost about double what it would be to rent a Budget truck and do all the work yourself, except when you do it yourself it takes all day and you can’t stop sweating for a week after the move. So 3 Men Movers, BRAVO! They did such a great job, nothing was damaged. I don’t think I’ll ever move again without hiring movers. Of course, I hope it’s a really, really, really, really, really, really, really long time before we move. Our insurance agent needed some exterior photos of the house so I’ll share some of them with ya (interior photos are coming) …

5 months already!?!?!

by Kyle Smith

Well today marks exactly 5 months and one day since Jackson was born. I can’t believe it’s already been that long! It’s been a blast and it’s getting more fun every day. Many have been requesting more photos of our little guy so yesterday before I left for my last bridal portrait session I snapped some photos of my two favorite people. Jackson had just finished eating so ignore the goo on him…

Has the housing market crashed?

by Kyle Smith

Well in our case, no. We are scheduled to close on our house this Friday at 3 p.m. With the market doing so many crazy things it looks like we’re getting it just in time. We really got lucky with this house because it’s a brand new build, sits on .72 acres, and was in our price range! We hope to start moving asap, but we still have the apartment until the end of May so we’re not in too big of a hurry to move everything all at once. Once we get settled in feel free to visit, or if you just cant wait feel free to help us move! Here are some photos I took on my cell phone of the house before it was finished…

Daycare…

by Kyle Smith

Well, Nicole started back at the grind today and we took Jackson to his first day of daycare. Being the photographer I am, I completely forgot the camera!! I really was kinda upset about this, but what can ya do?

I didn’t think it was going to get to me as much as it has (not forgetting the camera, but leaving him at daycare). I feel like such a punk for just dropping him off with these people he doesn’t know. Thankfully Nicole knows pretty much everyone who works there because oddly enough, they all took care of her when she was in daycare.

One good thing about him being at daycare is he’ll probably get on a schedule, FINALLY! It seems like no matter what Nicole and I would do he just wouldn’t get on a schedule. Well I can’t wait to see him tonight, I wish he could talk so I could ask him how it went, haha.

Oh yea, here’s a photo of him in the bath the other day, nothing special except that it’s a picture of him…
