Bittersweet

As I prepare for this weekend's upcoming Garage Sale, it is a little bittersweet that I am selling all of Jackson's clothes. He truly had the most AMAZING clothes, and I have such fond memories of him as a baby (I am saying this because I think my fond memories of Tyler are just beginning), he was such a GOOD BABY, and many of the clothes are associated with specific events, outings, happenings, etc. I know they are just clothes, and that the memories will live on, but I just have to say that no matter how sad it is, I am content with the decision to not have anymore kids, and I am glad that we are moving out of the infant stage. If I need a fix, I will go see Rylee when she is born!

As a tribute to Rylee's upcoming birth and Pat's birthday today, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DORK! I am going to close with a picture taken shortly after the birth of Jackson. Needless to say, I am the one taking the picture, and my dear sister and husband are asleep on the couch. I didn't know three hours of pushing a 9 pound 9 ounce baby out was so exhausting for them!

I was always so jealous that Jackson would let you put shoes and socks on him!! He did have a pretty great wardrobe :) XOXO

So glad my boys are younger and therefore, have now benefited from his fabulous wardrobe!!! Had a GREAT time today.

Ha ha ha...so funny. If I am not mistaken..I think this picture was taken BEFORE the pushing.

9 pounds, 9 ounces?!? You are amazing!!! No wonder he still eats you out of house and home! If our (yet to be concieved) third child is a boy, I am TOTALLY hitting Jaclyn up for those clothes! He was (and IS) always the most stylin' little guy!
