Linking up for Friday Favorites! Happy Friday, Ya’ll!
These adorable photos I snapped of Jackson this week! We’ve been asking him since early summer what he wanted to be for Halloween and his answer has not changed. He wants to be a puppy doctor! So I ordered a kid’s scrub top, bought a toy vet kit and our costume is complete! I kind of hate that Jellybean wasn’t part of this photoshoot (she was at the puppy spa) but then again that might have been a complete train wreck.
My cute new scarf! I ordered this one after seeing it over on Mix and Match Mama’s blog. I wasn’t sure I’d be able to afford it since it was from Nordstrom, but it was within my budget! I love that I can wear it with navy or black! I also love that it’s lightweight and can be worn when Oklahoma is confused about what season it is. 90 degrees in October. No. Thank. You!
Despite the warm temps, there’s evidence that cooler weather is on the way! The leaves are starting to turn! Yippee! There’s nothing like the colors of Fall. Changing leaves make my heart happy! Next weekend we are headed to a popular spot in Oklahoma that’s supposed to be bursting with beautiful Fall foliage. I can’t wait to share some photos with you!
Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins. They are hands-down better than a normal peanut butter cup. Why can’t we have these year-round? They have SO much peanut butter in them and let’s face it, that’s the best part! Jackson is quite the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup fan and I pretty much adore the fact that he loves them as much as his mama!
Despite all the challenges we’re having with school, I know Jackson’s not just a behavior problem. I know this because I see his heart. I regularly get glimpses that reveal the best version of him.
This week we were at the park and Jackson was playing with another little boy. They were having a lot of fun. Not once did he get aggressive. He kept his hands on his own body. He used his words.
At one point Jackson was playing on another piece of equipment when the little boy fell out of the swing and started crying. Jackson ran over to him as fast as he could, squatted down and said, “you okay, boy?”
That moment is my absolute favorite from the week!
That’s the boy I wish everyone could see!
That’s the boy I will keep fighting for!
I can’t tell you how much we needed this after the past few weeks! We celebrated with Dr Peppers after school!
I love how excited Jackson gets to check the mail after school each day. I always loved checking the mail (and still do). Wednesday there was a card waiting for him from one of his best buddies! I love that Autry sent him a Halloween card with words of encouragement. We just love that girl!!!!
