Day 185- Happy? 4th of July

I've had one cranky kid all day. His naps were cut short from phone calls, thunderstorms, and other outside noises. I can't tell if it's his ear or teeth bothering him, or both. He's finally down with ear drops and motrin so hopefully he'll get some good sleep tonight b/c it's back to work and the sitters tomorrow. It rained all day so there was no celebrating here, just trying to keep Mr. Jackson happy. While his father was watching him, poor kid fell and cracked his eye and now has a black eye to boot. So now he's a white kid, with red, swollen gums, and blue bruise over his eye- yep that pretty much sums up our independence day.

We did salvage the evening by serving his favorite- spaghetti and meatballs! That did seem to lift his spirits.

Look who started standing in his crib this week
Watching the fish
hi Dad (he fell shortly after this)
Tearing up his floor makes Jackson happy
Almost no hands!
What Mom, I stand all the time...
See his poor bruise- and his happy spaghetti face
Another pic of his eye :(
