The latest and greatest...

So to start you off, here is a recent video of our little guy! I was going through old videos we took of him in Grenada and I can't believe how much he's grown up since then. It made me realize I hadn't taken any recent video of him in a while, so here you go!! :) He's growing in to quite the little man and he has such a fun personality. Todd and I are so blessed to have him in our lives. Jackson has been enjoying himself a lot! He loves to play outside and play with his grandparents, aunts, and uncle. He's been having a great time figuring out different animal sounds, and figuring out how to communicate with us. He still loves music and loves to dance, and is really getting in to sports! He loves throwing the ball around with his dad, and can even kick his soccer ball to hit a target! He also has a great love for animals. We were able to take him to the Spring Puyallup Fair. He ran immediately up to all of the animals and tried to communicate with them in their own language :) Here is a fun pic of him with his animal friends...

Todd took the Step One of the US Medical Licensing Exam in March, and found out he passed several weeks ago! He did a great job on the exam and I'm so proud of him. Since then, we've been able to spend so much quality time as a family going on hikes, walks in the park, and lots of visits with Grandparents. I have been truly cherishing this time as a family, and know we probably won't have another opportunity like this again. It's been wonderful!

We also found out recently that our appeal to go to Michigan was denied, and Todd will be starting his rotations at Coney Island Hospital on May 26. We were pretty disappointed at first, but now we are looking at this as an adventure! NY will be a fun and exciting place to live, and even though it's not what we had in mind, I'm sure it will be great! Anyway, we are heading out there mid May, so I guess that means our time in WA is coming to an end... something I am not quite ready to come to terms with!

Well that's it for now! More blog posts soon, I promise! :)
