Two months.

This little guy is two months old today!

January 24, 2011: two months!
January 24, 2011: Just hanging out with mom

Our little snow bunny is all tuckered out after a walk :)

On Friday, January 20th, Jackson had his two month doctor visit! Here are the new stats:

11 lbs 3 oz (44th percentile)
22.4 in. (31st percentile)
15.5 in. head circumference (35th percentile)

He's up from the 6-7 percentile range for all his stats since he was born. We're pretty proud of how much he has grown :)

Just chillin' in the bath tub :)
Love that cute belly!

Some new things about little Jackson:
  1. He loves bath time. He relaxes with his hands on his belly or up by his head with a furrowed brow the whole time.
  2. Chuck has discovered that if you blow on his face he jumps, his eyes pop open and he breathes in really quickly.
  3. he is a grunter by all accounts. 
  4. He LOVES the swing that Tam and Greg gave him. He sleeps in it every night.
  5. He loves to stand on mom or dad's lap.
  6. Bouncing is his favorite. Whenever he gets a little fussy, I sing "trot, trot to Boston" and bounce him on my lap and he calms right down.
  7. He is not a fan of poopy pants. As soon as he goes, he lets us know.
  8. He can hold his head up on his own for the most part.
  9. The pictures in books fascinate him.
  10. He often looks up at the ceiling or wall whenever we are holding him.
  11. Sometimes he will look at us with "sideways" eyes and it's hilarious. He's already got the stink eye down :)
  12. He doesn't like to be left alone. If he wakes up or if he's been hanging out on his own for too long he lets me know he wants to be held and that solves the problem :)
  13. We used the kitchen aid last night and he was fascinated by the sound.
  14. Almost anytime we lay him on the floor in front of the space heater, he passes out within minutes.
Love him.
I love his "what is going on?" face
Like father like son.
 All in all he's a pretty stellar fella :)

Where in the world... Law School

So... I finally, almost 3 months since receiving my LSAT scores, have gotten my law school applications in. I wasn't too terribly happy with my LSAT score considering I had been practicing about 6 points higher than I got, but I am still excited to be going to law school and waiting to see who accepts me and if they want to give me money or not!!!

Here is a list of all the schools I applied to (in alphabetical order):

Arizona State University--Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law
Brigham Young University--J. Reuben Clark Law School
Charleston School of Law
Duke University School of Law
The George Washington University Law School
Indiana University Maurer School of Law--Bloomington
University of Kentucky College of Law
University of Louisville's Brandeis School of Law
The University of Michigan Law School
Michigan State University College of Law
Northwestern University School of Law
Notre Dame Law School  (decided not to apply, it was one of two schools I'd have to pay the full application fee for and we really aren't THAT interested in it...)
University of Pennsylvania Law School
Seton Hall University School of Law
Vanderbilt University Law School
Wake Forest University School of Law

This map shows where I've applied (move it to see ASU and BYU) and the color code is:

Green = should definitely get in
Blue = should get in, but not for sure
Red = a reach school, but they let me apply for free - so I did.

Here are some of Em's favorite locations for school... can you tell why?
Duke Campus, Durham, NC

Nashville, TN

Lexington, KY
Charleston, SC
Ann Arbor, MI

Thanks to Mom and Dad Krebs for Jackson's adorable blessing outfit!
 On Christmas Day, Jackson Andrew Krebs was given a blessing by his proud Papa. It was such a sweet and happy occasion and we are so grateful for our families for taking time to be there, especially on Christmas morning. I'm especially grateful for the Parker family who came to the blessing and their sweet little kids, David and Olivia, who were excited to be there even though they had presents waiting to be opened at home! Jackson sure does have some awesome relatives who care so much about him.

Our happy little family :)

In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we give a baby blessing to little children. The blessing is performed by worthy priesthood holders. The father usually pronounces the blessing. It includes the naming of the child as well as a blessing. This blessing, along with all other blessings that can be given in the church, are given through the power and authority of the priesthood allowing them to be a mouthpiece of God. I'm so grateful that Chuck is a worthy priesthood holder and that he is capable of calling on God to bless our family. Through Chuck, Heavenly Father blessed little Jackson with health, integrity and joy. He was also blessed to be a peacemaker in our home and be a good example to the rest of his siblings yet to come. What a wonder this gospel is. I'm so grateful for the chance to raise up Jackson with the knowledge that he has a Father in Heaven who loves him and cares about him.

Christmas Time.

I know, I'm a little behind. But I at least wanted to post some pictures from our wonderful break in Kentucky and South Carolina. Thanks to all of our wonderful family who made the trip TOTALLY worth it.
Jackson's first Christmas!

We absolutely LOVED getting to be with family over the break. I'm so grateful that we were able to make it back home for the holidays :)
