I love cheese. (Jackson update)

Hello. My name is Jackson, and I melt my mom's heart into a giant puddle every day.

Our little booger man (don't adam and I come up with the most endearing nicknames?), will be TEN MONTHS OLD on Sunday. Umm, excuse me? Hello! That's only 2 months away from a year old! Goodness....seriously. Does it go by this fast? Will I blink and he'll be in college?! Please tell me no!

Ok, I'm done freaking out (for now).

As I was saying, our little man is just growing too fast! I feel like I'm looking at a "real" little boy now! Not that he hasn't always been a little boy, but now he seems more like a toddler, and less like a baby. Honestly, the older he gets the more I love each stage that he enters. Right now Jackson is crawling and getting into everything. Sometimes we have to say "no," and when we do, his strong-willed personality comes out. Adam and I have been talking about how thankful we are for Jackson's determination, but we have got to make sure that we channel it the right way. I can't wait to see how God uses him.

He currently sleeps about 11-12  hours at night, with the occasional night waking. And on that note, we are beginning to wonder if Jackson has inherited his daddy's sleep talking. Sometimes he (Jackson) will wake, sit up, babble, and then go back to sleep. It's cute. :) 

He loves eating blueberries, green peas, lima beans, turkey meat (I've found some all-natural, organic deli meat at Publix, and Jackson loves it!) sweet potato, and all other fruits. His hands-down favorite food right now is cheese. He is his father's son. When Jackson sees me getting the cheese out of the fridge, he starts laughing, waving his hands, and kicking his legs. This boy LOVES him some cheese!

As far as what he will not eat, well lets just say that when he eats squash, green beans, and carrots, he gags, and it scares his momma mad. He is getting better though. I keep trying to get him to eat them. 

And for his stats....He currently weighs about 22 pounds, and is somewhere around 30 inches long, (this terrible momma can't remember how long the doctor said he was last time, oops). And he wears 12-18 month old clothes (not that you all really care the size of his clothes either).

Being a parent is just such a joy. Honestly, Jackson makes us laugh everyday, and I know that will only happen more and more the older he gets. He's started trying to wave to us, but instead of waving with his hand open, he closes his fist, and waves his fist up and down. It's hysterical.  Also, when he sees a toy he wants, he starts grunting and smiling and crawling really fast to get to it. His new favorite thing to do is to go through anything like a basket, or bag, or drawer, and remove every item piece by piece. The other day he was "helping" me put away his laundry, and before I knew it, he had taken every item of clothing out of his bottom drawer. All I could do was laugh. When he had finished, he smiled like he had accomplished something major. And he had, I guess, in a "I'm only 10 months and this is huge that I just emptied out my drawer" kind of way. :) 

Anyway, I guess that sums things up for now. Please pray that I don't have a melt-down when it sinks in that he's only got 17 years and 2 months left at home.  

Night friends!
