Lori-Lynn and I decided to take some pictures of the boys before they left for New York. We had them fed, cleaned and changed thinking we could get some great shots. Out of all the ones we took this one came out the best. It was one of the last pictures we took before we called it a day! Maybe their attention span just isn’t there yet!!
Jackson is growing like crazy!!! He is now fifteen pounds and over 25 inches long. He is talking all the time and is proving himself to be very social. If Jake and I are talking somewhere in the house he wants to be in on the conversation and will make noises until we pick him up and sit him with us. Then he smiles and in his cute little way tells us to continue talking so he can join in. Jake and I are loving being parents and are excited to have a new addition to our family!

Over Christmas we were able to visit the extended Avila family as they all got together. Jake’s dad Chuck has six brothers and sisters and then of course all of their kids. I am finally after 3 1/2 years of marriage loving family gatherings because I know all of them by name now. It was neat to take a picture of Jackson, Jake, Chuck and Grandma Nancy. I never knew my great grandparents so I feel blessed that Jackson has a great grandma on both sides and will grow up knowing them! Jackson and his Great Grandma Nancy
