Number Five

Some bunny got a new toof! Tooth #5 came in yesterday, in a big way, which explains a lot. Ha. This new shiner is on the top left, so now there are three big guys up on top and two bunny teeth on the bottom.

Jackson is not as graceful of a teether as Lucca, needless to say we will be very happy when all his chompers are in!

But looking at this sweet face, you would never guess otherwise, right?

"mom, why am I wearing overalls?"

10 Months!

Happy 10 months! Daddy is working late, sister is singing in her crib and I am rocking your sweet self because you are sick :(

Can't even believe you are almost 1. Lucca thinks you should have a dinosaur birthday party...we'll see...

At just barely 10 months, you are standing and "cruising" all around. Walking is just around the corner. Unreal.

You say...
Hi Dada
Woof woof
All done ("ah duh")
Blueberry ("Boo-bah") YOUR FAV
Na-na (banana)
Again (after "the Itsy Bitsy Spider, went up the spout again", you say "again" every single time)
Yes (learned this yesterday from Daddy!)
And all the Gaga's and goo-goo's you can imagine :)

You don't eat baby food anymore. Like at all. Your favorite foods are blueberries, bananas, squash, peas, applesauce, sweet potatoes, beans and anything else we let you get your hands on! Spaghetti, quinoa, cheese...anything.

You are so easy going & happy. You are VERY sensitive. If I tell you NO, like when you are playing with a cord, you pout your bottom lip out as far as it can go and give me the business! You get so sad, but the face you make is so dang cute. Til the tears come.

Our game is "snuggle" and when I say snuggle, you give me a big ol hug and smile, then you let go and we do it over and over again. Love my Jackson snuggles.

Everyone says you look like your Dad, but I do see a but of myself in you too. Mostly your nose + lips.

You are an active dude. You want to do everything your sister does. You stare and smile at her all the day long in complete adoration. You guys play chase, which Lucca has called "Monster" where she will chase you, you will chase her, and you guys laugh and laugh. She does not laugh however, when you knock over her block towers and steal her toys, which happens all the living long day.

10 months means you've officially lived on the outside of me longer than inside. Crazy! I still nurse you, and I'm trying to wean you, but you have rejected the bottle this week. I think you know what's happening and you are boycotting. I'm so happy I've been able to nurse this long. (*If I had a soap box, it would be about nursing your child!!!) We will stop just short of 12 months because of my Paris trip.

Sleep? We won't discuss your sleep habits until they are improved. Ugh.

I love you sweet Jackson. You are my best boy. Happy 10 months you little charmer.

Every piece of Jackson is completely lovable, but his thighs? OUT OF THIS WORLD.

I just love looking at the squishiest legs on the planet and thinking about their future as long, skinny sticks, just like Daddy's.

Love my chubby baby.
