9 Months

Sweet Jack is 9 months old!

I am putting this post up a few days late, but I only took this picture 1 day late.

No clue on how much Jack weighs.  He has his 9 month check up in a couple of weeks, so we will know then.  My guess is about 22 pounds.  He is so tall, but he has slimmed down a little.  He wears 9 to 12 month clothes (he has a few 6 to 9 month clothes he can still fit in--especially the smocked outfits).

He sleeps from about 7:30 p.m. until 7 a.m.--although lately he has been waking up a little early, like 6:30 or 6:45.  I think he is still readjusting after all the travel and visitors.  He has not been the best napper lately.  He nurses (or takes a bottle at daycare) four times a day, and eats solid three times a day.  The past few weeks we have been giving him more "table foods."  He loves hummus, guacamole, bread...let's be honest--Jack loves anything edible!

Jack started crawling this month (3/9).  Once he started moving, he did not stop!  He can already pull himself up on everything and can crawl up the stairs (with supervision, of course!).  He is fast!

And with the moving comes attitude.  Now that Jack can reach almost anything he could want, he isn't very happy when you take that away from him.  We will have to work on that...

Still just two teeth and no sign of any more!

Jack loves music.  He loves to crawl over to the stereo and put a cd on.  Then he will just stand there and rock back and forth dancing.  He also loves to sing along with music.

Here is Jack--on the go!

He said his first word this past week..."Dada."  He has been saying it for a few weeks, but it mostly just sounded like babbling.  But this week he has started saying it if we ask.  And he has been saying it to Bech.  Too sweet.

Jack traveled a bunch this past month.  He and I flew down to New Orleans and spent a few days in Baton Rouge.  He loved seeing his two grandmothers, one of his great-grandmothers, and his Aunt KK.  Then my family came to visit, and we spent a weekend in Boston.  He was a trooper.  He also got to enjoy his first frozen yogurt!  

Likes:  his "lovey," eating, music, being read to

Dislikes:  not getting his way!

Jack is absolutely the sweetest little boy.  Every day I am so thankful to have him as a part of my life!
And finally, for comparison...

Who is this big ole boy?  Everyday he looks less and less like a baby!
