9 months

Our little guy is 9 months old today!

A good shot of his growing curly fro
New favorite place to sit
Watching his favorite TV show: "My Friends Tigger & Pooh"
Loves mini Tootsie-Pop suckers (good thing since Sean bought an ENORMOUS bag for Halloween three years ago!)

Here are some things going on with Jackson right now:
-His four top teeth are all coming in
-Has lots of blonde, curly hair (in case you are wondering where the blonde comes from, Sean was a blondie when he was young too)
-Says "mama" and knows what it means
-Jabbers all the time and seems to carry on lengthy conversations with himself
-Loves books and turning the pages back and forth
-Crawls all over Sean and I, but when we put him on the floor he isn't interested and prefers rolling around
-Loves pictures-- especially of himself :)
-Wears 18-month clothing
-In a new carseat since he outgrew the old one
-Loves cars and trucks-- both real and toys. Every Tuesday we stand on the balcony to watch the garbage truck and he is fascinated
-Is still putting anything and everything in his mouth and loves sucking out of a straw
-Likes to sit in the bathroom sink
-Loves to go through the Sunday paper ads with me. I give him the ones I am done looking through and he tears them to shreds.He would seriously be happy doing this for hours
-Will eat green beans and dill pickles without any hesitation, but gets a funny face with applesauce
-Finally taking two naps a day regularly! They are usually only about 45 mins to an hour each, but it seems to be all he needs since he's usually a happy camper
-Is getting clingy and often gets upset when Sean or I are not right near him
-Loves clocks and ceiling fans
-Is trying to teach himself how to whistle and was successful for a few short breaths this morning ;)
I can't believe in three months he will already be a year old! Where did time go?
