Just Another Day in Paradise

Yep, today was just another day in paradise, haha, just kidding!  Maybe if the weather was warmer and there was a beach nearby…

Today we played outside for our entire visit.  It was only about an hour because it takes the nurses like 10 minutes to change him into his outdoor clothes and to put his jacket and scarf and hat on him.  There were lots of little kids playing outside today and he likes to run up to them to see what they are doing.  The nurses were walking the other kids in circles around the building.  Every time they came by we would wave and say hi.  One precious little girl would stay and wave a long time!  A few of the kids called me Mama today!  It melts your heart!

Jackson was being cute in his own little way today.  Again he was imitating EVERYTHING that we did, which included throwing and kicking leaves and sitting down on a bench.  There was an older lady outside with the other kids today and he ran right up to her and she picked him up.  She started bouncing him on her leg and singing a song.  He loved it.  Then she asked him, “Where’s Mama?” and he turned around and pointed at me and yelled “Mama!”  Yay!  He did the same thing with Scott when she asked where Papa was.  He’s catching on so fast!  When the nurse took him away today he started crying and waved goodbye to us all the way into the building. Here are some pictures from the day.
