Sleepover with Jackson + a WINNER!

Last weekend, our one-year-old nephew came to spend the night with us! (for the best one-year-old cake-smashing pics, check out my post from his party- he was hilarious!) We had a blast entertaining and being entertained by him. He is just the sweetest little guy!

We played peek-a-boo

We emptied drawers

We read books

We watched the birds

We tried on Uncle Matt's glasses
(only for 1.5 seconds) ;)

We flipped on the bed

He LOVED this! I would say, "1, 2, 3" and Jackson would say, "Dah, Dah" (go)- precious!

We read more books
(that's what happens when your aunt's a teacher)

We felt the rain falling
(one of Jackson's favorite pastimes)

We ate dinner
(Video of Jackson laughing at how Uncle Matt is feeding him)

Then Uncle Matt and Jackson played on the kitchen floor while Aunt Hea made dinner
(This makes me happy)

We took a bath 
(well, Jackson did)

Love a baby hiney ;)

Poor guy got the letter stuck on his back! We might have watched him try to get it off instead of helping... mean Aunt Hea and Uncle Matt

Morning time!
 gah I love that face!

Morning snuggles

We ate breakfast

Loves his Uncle Matt :)

We played on the office chair
(a mini roller coaster, let's be honest)

We made a three-man band

Blogger doesn't seem to want to let me put any videos on here today, so here's the link to the video of this shot.

And then mommy and daddy came back to take their little guy home!

Loves his mama :)

Easiest baby ever. One of the major highlights was when he asked to go to bed:
Jackson: "ahh, ahh"
Me: Are you sleepy bud? Do you want to go to bed?
Jackson: patting his chest (sign language for "please")
Matt and I looked at each other and laughed, took him back to his room, sang songs and laid him down, and he was out before we walked back to our room.

Oh and then he slept til 8:00 the next morning.

Yeah, easiest baby ever. :)
