I know, baby talk is weird but we've digressed from our adulthood and talk in "baby" now. Teethies is just the beginning but we've been saying it a lot lately because Jackson has 2! They popped through the gums last week and they are sharp little buggers. So far I've been lucky and haven't been bitten while nursing but I have a feeling that is coming. Jack is much happier now that they are through and he slept for 10 hours straight last night (completely unrelated to his teethies but I feel compelled to mention it). I caught a few pics of the shiny whites on camera today!

My little "Jack" O Lantern

We spent the weekend at my parent's house and had a fabulous time! My parents got some great Jack time, he was full of laughs and was a really good boy. We went to the pumpkin patch (which he will enjoy a lot more next year) and got some great pics. We lucky with the weather was a beautiful fall day!

Jack is doing fabulous. He is sitting up by himself and starting to scoot on his belly. He is also trying to get on all fours but hasn't quite figured it out yet. I'm in no hurry for him to start crawling though, it's nice that he isn't mobile yet. He laughs, coos and smiles constantly and is doing so many fun things. He is full of personality and always has us laughing!

We've been doing well with the solid food too. So far Jack has had sweet potato, applesauce, banana, oatmeal and rice cereal, green beans and avocado. He wanted nothing to do with the green veggies but he gobbles down the fruit and sweet potato. I think peas are next, yum, yum!

We are looking forward to hanging out with friends and little ones on Halloween. Jackson is going to be the Pillsbury Dough Boy (which you can see from the pics below really suits him)! I need to get my bum in gear and get the costume ready this week. I'll post pics of my squishy little dough boy next weekend. Happy Halloween!!!

So tired after a long day!

5 Months

My little baby is gone and he has been replaced with a smiling, laughing, cooing, jumping, fat, lazy, baby whom I couldn't possibly love any more than I do or my heart may explode!

The word SOLID pretty much sums up Jackson. He is a solid little boy. Here's the play by play of our adventure with rice cereal.

Bring it Mom...I'm ready!

Woohoo, here it comes. I've been waiting for this for so long!

Yum...Yum...Yum...Give me more!
Hmmm....maybe I can shove it back in my mouth with my hands.

Are we done? I see more over there...

That was so fun Mom!

If I smile at you can we do it again?

We've been busy...

We've been so busy. I don't know where the days/weeks go but they are really getting away from me.

Jackson had his 4 mo. Dr appt on Monday. He was actually 4 months 2 weeks and he is a little chunker! He weighed 16lbs and was 26inches long. He is in the 75% for weight and 90% for height. He is growing out of all of his 3-6 month clothes and I can't believe I'm going to have pack them all up and put them away sad!!

He is still a little bundle of smiles and laughs. He is getting close to sitting up (will do it for a few seconds at a time) and he has been giving me a few 8 hour stretches of sleep. They are inconsistent but still fabulous!

My Mom and Grandma will be thrilled to hear that we gave Jack a minute amount of rice cereal tonight! He has been reaching for our food lately and I feel like he is ready for something other than milk so we gave him a little rice cereal. He spit most of it out and probably only ate about a teaspoon. He loved playing with the spoon though and seemed to like the taste. He'll need some practice before he actually is able to eat much of it though.

Let's see...what else??? J and I have both been super busy with work and spending our weekends getting as many Jack kisses as possible. We left Jackson with his Great Grandma Vann for a few hours last Sat and went out for our friend Morgan's 30th B-day. It was very fun to get out. We were home by midnight but it felt soooo late!! I don't know how we used to do it

My Mom is headed up to get some Jack time on Sunday and we are excited to see her. Here are some pics...more to come!!
