What I'm Loving Wednesday

Its Wednesday again, and that means its time for...

♥  I'm loving that Jackson finally rolled over from his belly to his back last night! Twice! And then again this morning for my mom. He doesn't seem to like tummy time at all, so I rarely put him on his tummy (which may be why its taken him a little longer to roll over). But while in the nursery last night at church, I gave him some tummy time so I could play with some of the other babies and after a few minutes of being on his tummy he rolled right over!! Now I'll probably never be able to keep him on his tummy. Ha!

♥ I'm loving the Fray's new album, Scars and Stories, that was just released yesterday!

♥ I'm loving that Jackson has stopped spitting up as much. Yay! I hope I'm not jinxing it by saying this but since the Dr. said I could put a teaspoon or two of rice cereal in his bottles, he has been spitting up WAY less than before. I also learned a trick online that seems to have helped as well. Jackson is not too fond of being burped during his feedings. He cries and stiffens up, making it almost impossible to try and burp him. (He's very serious about his food, he takes that after his Daddy.) So while searching for a solution online I found that several people give their baby's a binky during burps to keep them pacified til they get the bottle back. This has worked like a charm. No more screaming during burps and he's actually getting to burp now because he's calm and not throwing a fit. Yay for calmer feedings and for using less burp cloths and bibs!

♥ I'm loving that Jake and I are in the process of planning our 5 year anniversary trip for this July. I can't believe it will be 5 years already! We are planning a week long trip to Mackinac Island, Michigan! I can't wait!

There are no cars on the island. Transportation is by bike, carriage or walking. ♥

♥ I'm loving these new chicken McBites from McDonalds.

♥ And as always, I'm loving my sweet and supportive family! They are amazing!

♥ What are you loving today?? ♥
