We have the sweetest new addition to our family: Jackson

He is so wonderful. I am in LOVE with this boy. My heart melts every time he smiles at me. Jackson was born April 14th at a healthy 9 lbs 9 oz. (Small compared to his brother!) Jackson has continued to grow fast and strong. What a sweet boy.

Jackson loves to watch everything Nicholas does. Just saying the word "Nicholas" gets Jackson excited. They play together like there isn't an age difference. Nicholas is so good with him and is such a great helper. Maybe there's something to this "having your kids five years apart." We'll see!

Now that he's 7 months, Jackson is starting to crawl. He has his own version - it's a combination of doing The Worm and looking like a frog. He hasn't figured out that you only have to move one knee at a time...it doesn't matter much to him anyway - he is so fast!

There are two teeth in that sweet smile of his - both on the bottom. I think another is coming because the drooling and runny nose are in full swing. I let him chew on cold baby carrots to keep his mouth from hurting. He loves it.

Our little guy is quite the traveler - well, for his age. He's driven from Austin to Orlando, and Orlando to Houston and back. Jackson's also flown to Salt Lake City to see Grandma and Grandpa Delis for Aunt Kim's wedding. Next maybe Key West to visit some friends? Hopefully.

Back at it....

I know I've been gone AWHILE, but whatever. No excuses...just updates. 1st update: our move(s):
It's hard to keep up with us. We have literally moved 4 times in the last 2 years. We've stayed put in TX for so long, we don't quite know what to do with it. I'll give you the quick version (I know I need pics, but I need to find the camera and camera cord, upload, blah blah blah....I'll do it soon.) So here it is:
Two years ago we moved to Utah on a "feeling." No job, moved in with Sam's parents. Two weeks later, we met the VP of Sales of Del Sol. Sam had an interview, he got asked to work in Key West, we moved there 4 months after moving to Utah.
Lived in Key West until Dec. Sam's contract was up for renewal, but with no insurance. I was pregnant. We needed insurance. Also, there was a possibility that they'd move us. Only available places were in the Caribbean. No insurance, Caribbean birth. No way.
So we moved to Texas in Dec. Sam got a temp to hire job, with insurance. We had the baby. (He is so freakin' cute!) In July, Del Sol called to say Orlando was available. Sam left Aug. 4th, we came on the 18th.
Del Sol is Sam's dream company, and he is excited to work for them again. It was hard to make the decision to leave Key West, but we felt like it was okay to leave or stay. Seems like either way we would have moved to Orlando. I'm just glad I got to have the baby around family.
That's us in a nutshell!
