I'm still in shock that we've already reached 9 months. These have certainly been the busiest, most tiring and fulfilling months! And now that Jackson is on the move? It's non-stop!
Here's what's new with Jackson:
Height: 27 1/2 inches Weight: 20 pounds 4 ounces Head Circumference: 17 1/4 inches
Jackson is quickly turning into quite the character. He has his happy moments and his very mad moments. He knows that if he cries we'll hold him and if he wants out of bed to knock the camera off the crib. He's one smart cookie.
His crawling is at a new level. Jackson is a super-speedy crawler.
Jackson still loves the dogs more than anything. And not just our dogs, any dog. LOVES them.
He crawls around the house squealing and chasing Millie as she runs in circles completely horrified. All the while Baxter could care less as long as someone talks to him.
Naps are not something Jack likes, at all! It's a good day if we get two naps each lasting an hour. Typically he'll take a good morning/afternoon nap and then one short nap. I have no idea where he gets all this energy! Night-time sleeping is improving. Most nights he'll sleep from 7:30 - 6:30/7. But every now and again he throws in a early morning or middle of the night feeding. Really, I don't think we have room to complain.
The boy loves food. He's over eating purees and is always interested in whatever we have. I even let him have some broccoli cheese soup the other night and he loved it!
Did you know he pulls himself up? Well, he does. He is dying to walk! He'll even stand on his own for a few seconds at a time. My bet is that we'll be walking by 11 months.
Jackson still has 3 teeth. I keep waiting for another to pop through, but it's not happening.
His favorite toy? The dogs! However, with all of his new Christmas presents I'm sure he'll find something new to keep his attention.
Jack loves to talk and he loves daycare. Every day when I drop him off he lights up when seeing the other kids. And he is becoming quite the little ham. I can already tell he is going to be just like his Dad in that sense.
In case you were wondering most of my attempt to get his monthly photos ended like this:
Happy 9 months Jackson!
