i love little jack-jack

Last week was wild!! 3 weddings, a sick husband, that’s enough to vouch for a crazy mama right?!  No matter what, I can just look at jack and be ok.  He has given me a reason to slow down, focus, and try to enjoy life- regardless how busy i get.  The workload is still there and will be for the rest of summer and into fall.  I love my work and I love my job and can’t imagine doing anything else, but wont lie… it is a lot of work!! and a lot of organizing and planning and coordinating. 


One thing that I don’t ever want is for that to come between me and my family.  So Andy, you usually get brushed aside but I’m working on it!!  And Jackson, you will never get brushed aside no matter what, it’s impossible for me to do that.  I will always stop and let you show me things, I will stop to read you a book, I will stop to make you a real lunch.  You are the best thing that ever happened to me and daddy.


So now is the time that I have to make sure that the work gets done, and the family gets the attention that they deserve.  Jackson makes it easy cuz he’s so cute and squishy and silly.  Although he can be a real piece of crap sometimes, it’s still cute right now and Andy and myself try hard not to laugh when he’s naughty!  (example- he threw a dinner mint across the table at a restraunt last night and it just so happened to land in my glass of wine :) nice shot jack!)  In a couple years I might have a very different blog about that!  it wont be cute or funny anymore so live it up little dude! haha! 


Jack is just so great and is making Andy and me really make a special effort to do ‘family’ things, and I love that.  So thank you jack for being so radical! 


  1. Ohhh Lori. This was a good post. You are sooo doing the right thing by taking in every second with Jack. I regret that I didn't do that with Claire. And I did do it with Faye because I learned the first time that everything goes by so fast. I feel like I spent so much time stressing about Claire that I forgot to enjoy her and that sucks. So this is so great that you're loving being a mom to that precious chubby man. We love him too:)

  2. you are seriously such a great mom Lori! i love how you are with jackson, your family is so much fun!!
