9 months

Today Jackson is 9 months old!
We went to see Dr. Zarbock bright and early this morning for his check-up. We got the Jungle Book room this time.
He said he is right on track for everything! He weighed 20 lbs 15 oz, which put him in the 60th %ile for weight. I can't believe that 40% more babies weigh more than him! Those are some big babies! He is in the 92nd %ile for height (wonder where he gets it?!) and 70th %ile for his cute little noggin'. When people make comments about him it's usually about what a cute shaped head he has, how dark his eyes are, or just how happy he is.
No shots at the appointment, Yay! But he did have his hemoglobin checked. He yelled at the nurse pretty good for poking his heel and wasn't too sure about the band-aids.
At 9 months he is CRAWLING all over the place and will pull himself to STAND on just about anything. He loves FOOD and loves to drink water out of a sippy. He SLEEPS up to 9 HOURS at night, but usally wakes up after 6 or 7. Dr. Zarbock siad "no more eating during the night." Did you hear that Jackson?! He naps very well during the day. He is a very smiley kid and makes friends just about everywhere we go. He's not much of a talker, but can say "mama", "dada".
Here is Londyn at 9 months. What a toe-head! At her 9 month appt, she was not even crawling yet, but she was saying a lot more! A difference between girls and boys I guess. I'm very grateful to have one of each; cute, smart happy ones at that! Love you guys!!

Tulip Festval 2010

We LOVE the Tulip Festival and look forward to it every year. This year we went twice! And since we are now so close to Thanksgiving point, we got a season pass so we can go there, and the farm and dinosaur museum as much as we want! And we can get guests in for 1/2 off, so come on!
The 1st night we went the weather was PERFECT! 80 degress!
Everytime I put Jackson down to take a picture by the tulips he would proceed to eat the dirt. he's ALL BOY!
