Jackson @ 9 Months

(Sorry no formal 9 month picture yet. We've been a little busy. But I'll include some pics over the last couple weeks and LOTS of new info to share about him)

At 9 Months Jackson, You:
Weigh 22lbs, 3 oz (90th) and are 31" tall (greater than 95th)

- Are ON THE MOVE Big time!
-Love to stand and try to walk behind your Mickey Choo Choo Train
-enjoy walking holding onto our hands (you laugh, grin and pick up your legs so fast you look like you're running!)
-have learned to wave
-talking NON stop.  Now that you are on the move and learning new things you don't really say Mama or Dada too much anymore. You are trying to figure out new words and learning your new signs. 
-You sign for "more", even though the correct sign has now changed into your OWN version which is a bit different but you are VERY clear about it to us! :)  Just like you to be creative and make up something different!
-mastered pulling up, hanging on with one hand, standing for a few seconds, and cruising the couch/tables.
-have plenty of bruises from your daredevilish ways! You are not afraid to try something new and possibly hurt yourself
-are still a big HAM!
-Like to help out and see what Mommy & Daddy are doing
-Wear 12 month clothes, size 4 diapers
-Down to eating 4, 6oz bottles a day, plus 3 solid food meals (meat, cheese, yogurt,crackers, every fruit & vegetable) + water in sippy cup. You are a great eater (obvious from your stats above) and will try anything!

Jackson, you have been a WONDERFUL baby through Mommy's health difficulties the last 3 weeks.  You could not have handled it any better and were Mommy's best medicine through it all especially when you visited me every morning in bed with that BIG grin and giggle.We are VERY blessed to be your parents and could not be prouder of you in every way.  Thank you for being so independent, happy-go-lucky, and quite the entertainment.  They say laughter heals and with you around we have plenty of that.  Hope we are as good of parents to you as you are a son to us.
