The Big 2

I realize that I hardly post anymore, but how can I pass up Jack's 2nd birthday. Something this monumental has to be recorded, at least in pictures. Jack loves trains right now, so I decided to make him a train cake (thanks to Grandma Alesa for finding the cake pan!). It took a lot more time than I anticipated, but it was fun and Jack loved it.

We had both my mom and Jordan's parents in Utah close to Jack's birthday, so he had about three parties. This is the little cake that my mom brought him.

These pictures are out of order- but here is some recent ones of Jack and Jude. Jack's favorite thing to do is get in Jude's crib and "nap" with Jude.

Jack and his cousin Leah are a day apart and so we celebrated their birthday's together this year. Here they are admiring my handy work.

Lake Powell

We had another fun time at Lake Powell. It was just my parents and our family, but that's about all we could pull off with little Jack and Jude. Thank you Mom for waking up and feeding Jude at night even when there were bats flying around in the houseboat. Thanks Dad for all the wakeboard runs.
Lindsey, Jack, and I slept on top of the houseboat under the stars each night in our two man (or two adults and a toddler) sleeping bag. Jack, of course, was all over the place and made things interesting.
My Dad and I had a blast waking up to fish the stripper boils.Jack playing on the beach with Lindsey.
Jack is already showing signs of having some serious wakeboarding skills.

This is a classic "I've been out on the lake to long" look.

I hate suckers!

A couple of days ago I (Jordan) took Jack to be immunized. This time was a little more tricky because he is more aware of what is going on, and I always hate to see him get stuck with a needle. But we planned to stop by 7 eleven afterwards, and he was the one that was going to pick out the treat. So we go in the store and I show him the candy aisle, the hotdogs, and slurpees. Hoping he would pick something that wouldn't completely rot out his teeth--I have nightmares about him being strapped down at the dentist office--it was time for the moment of truth. What did he pick? Jack couldn't help but hone in on the strategically placed, everlasting gobstopper sucker that stuck out like a sore thumb by the cash register. Are those things secretly produced by dentists that need more patients? And who knew they cost two plus dollars? So we bought it and I chucked it in the garbage as soon as he lost interest in it. Next time I'm spending a quarter on him and buying him a tootsie roll. This experience goes down as another lesson learned the hard way with the first child.
p.s. this post is dedicated to my blog nazi friends. You know who you are:)

The Amazing Jackers

Usually I don't post (this is Jordan) but Jack did something amazing that needs to be made known. Today at Costco--one of Jack's favorite places in the whole world--Jack devoured an entire Costco hotdog. Is that normal for a boy who is only 20 months old? I obviously don't think so and I can't wait to see what other tricks Jack has up his sleeve.

Jack is also an awesome older brother.

Jude Bert Ohlson

April 23, 2008
8 lbs 2 oz
20 inches

I went in to be induced on Thursday morning at 5 am and he arrived at 9:08 am. Luckily I had asked for my epidural before they even gave me the Potosin because it went faster than we thought. The baby came so fast that I didn't even have to push and the doctor was able to just shimmy him out. We had a few complications and I had to have a blood transfusion after the delivery but everything turned out fine and we are both healthy.
