LOVE the toothless smile! Tait is SO READY to lose a tooth, but none are even wiggly. And, according to her, she's " five and three quarters, so I should have a loose tooth by now!" Bless.

Jackson is such a handsome young man - I know you're so proud!

These are priceless!!! This would make a great collage to hang on the wall...and in the center put a bible verse that is dear to your heart about your little man:)

That is such a beautiful day and moment that you have captured.

Laughing at the Austin Powers nod. Ha!

Thanks Amanda for sharing some of your "joy" with us. He is absolutely precious and growing up so fast.

Kelly @ Love Well said...

Would you say he's sanguine, Amanda? That smile speaks VOLUMES.

Kristi said...

How sweet!

Also makes me sad, though...my youngest is now 7 (7 1/2 if you ask her!) and those first lost teeth are long gone for us. The other 3 are 10,12 and 16.

Amanda...I know we don't know one another, but girl enjoy every single second of this! It goes by SO stinkin' fast!

Angela said...

What a handsome fella! Love that smile! ;-)

Amanda, these just make me smile. Love that toothless smile!

BethPAtl said...

I love that you are intentional about cherishing these years! All too soon you will turn around and he will be a young man, like mine of 13 1/2 years. A different joy, mixed with a little frustration & trepidation, but precious just the same! Jackson makes me smile! Precious photos.

Missy said...

That just screams FUN FUN FUN!

Becky said...

He's so cute! Can't believe he's lost a tooth already. Will would be very jealous, he can't wait to loose teeth.

Georgia Jan said...

A merry heart does good like medicine...Proverbs 17:22

Jackson was some good medicine for my heart tonight - I love his sheer JOY!

Bless y'all,
Mrs. Jan :)

Jeannie (HAPPY HEART) said...

Hold on tight! One day soon, he will be kissing you on the forehead:) He is adorable!

Lisa @ The Preacher's Wife said...

How is that darlin' child possibly old enough to lose a tooth?! Girl, hang on tight. They'll be getting a driver's permit before you know it. And scaring the stuff out of you when they practice.

AKat said...

LOVE. As if you don't hear it enough...Jackson Jones is one handsome boy, the perfect combo of his momma and dad (don't tell C that I see a smidge more YOU...maybe 60/40!) He's just precious and full of life. I know y'all are so proud.

Jan said...

Amanda,
It's been soooo long since I've read your blog! Kiddos are gorgeous. You look great! Blessings,

Jan

Emily Kelley said...

What a happy looking child, very nice pictures.

Emily said...

Hey Amanda! It was great meeting you in Dallas. I can't wait to see what unfolds for you all in the future! And I have enjoyed praying for your family.

And what a cutie Jackson is. That missing tooth is precious!

Kelli said...

How in the world does your heart not burst with a precious smile like that? Such genuine JOY!
