This past Sunday, Jackson turned TWO! Cue all the emotions….Originally we didn’t plan to do much for Jackson’s birthday this year given that we knew we’d be dealing with the logistics of a newborn, but we decided last minute to have a small party at my parents’ house with just a few of my friends and their kids who live nearby. My parents are about 90 minutes away so at first I didn’t think it would be a good idea to go there, but Jackson is obsessed with “gamma and “pop pop,” so we knew that visiting for his birthday weekend would be special for him in and of itself, even if we didn’t have a big party planned. And if I’m being honest, having a couple of extra helping hands didn’t sound like a bad idea. With Emmy being relatively easy up until that point, we decided to brave the car ride and different sleeping arrangements, and I’m glad we did! Jackson had a blast, and seeing his many smiles over the course of the weekend made it all worth it.
