Pool Party for One


We bought Jackson his first little pool last night and set it up today. When he woke up from his 4 hour nap (with a little prodding) he had so much fun "swimming." We knew he would like it because he had so much fun swimming in Owen's pool last week! This little pool is the perfect size for our deck, since we have no yard. And during Jack's naps on hot days....I'm sure I can sit indian-style or something! (Funny picture, I know...he kept making the weirdest faces...and if you haven't noticed already, the pasty white skin definitely comes from mama!)

We bought the pool at Toys R Us last night after a yummy Chinese dinner with friends. I absolutely love going to Toys R Us and it's probably good that we have a small house, because some of the toys are so cool! I'm secretly hoping that if we have a girl someday, she will really want a play kitchen!

We also went to Pottery Barn outlet where I found some great deals! 2 matching twin size duvet covers for Jackson's room someday. I was so excited, because we shop the clearance section, and there's hardly ever 2 of anything there. I also got a shower curtain for sometime in the future, since I still like the one we have now and this one is more for a kid's bathroom. Anyway, though, Pottery Barn stuff at Walmart sale prices, gotta love it! Now I am continually checking eBay for the shams to match the duvets.
Not much else to write about, just wanted to post the latest picture of my little guy! (And a shout-out to my brother, who finally left me a comment! :) )

I do check over here when I get a chance, just usually happens to be when I only have one free hand =) but I was horrified for you reading about locking jack in by himself! I would have freaked. and that's so awesome you got a date weekend - I think by the time she's a year we may be able to feel comfortable leaving her for a bit? hopefully...
