Mr. Jett is 3 months old now. He is my sweet, content little man. He adores Callie, likes to suck on his thumb, and his smile will make your heart melt. I could stare at him all day:Callie has been asking for me to take her picture almost every day for the past week or so. Anytime she says "picture!" and points to my camera I enthusiastically jump up and start clicking away. She always pull up her little chair and either stands on it for her pose or sits down and flashes a big ole smile. I love it:
