Jackson is 4 Months Old TODAY!!!!

Jackson has now officially as of 3:00 this afternoon, been with us for 4 months!!! YAYYY Jackson! So as you know from the previous post, Jackson is weighing in at pretty much 16 pounds, and measuring up at 25 Inches long. He has gained almost 10 pounds in the last 4 months and grown 5 inches. WOW huh?

He has been eating his hands like crazy, starting to grab for his feet, playing with the things on his exersaucer and jumper, eating about 4 bottles a day 7-8oz each. Not interested in cereal yet, loves to stand and bounce, talks alot, and he is just a happy guy 90% of the time! His smiles and squeals really crack us up and we find ourselves laughing so hard we have tears in our eyes at him, of course that gets him going even more...its a vicious cycle! He loves to follow Dixie with his eyes wherever she goes, its really cute and he smiles at her when she licks him. To my disgust of course! He rolled over a couple times last month but hasn't done it anymore so we are looking forward to that further development. He would much rather be on his feet than on his belly. He is sitting really well, can kind of sit on his own (picture below of 4 Month shot), but still cannot really support himself with his hands, so if he looses his balance, its all over and face is in cushion! The one thing I wish would change...his drooling! I cannot keep enough burp cloths and bibs dry with this guy, but no sign of teeth yet!

Right now, he is napping after a busy day so far. We went to church, where he proceeded to stay awake instead of napping as he should have...too much going on. At least we didnt get called out for bad boy behavior this Sunday! After church, great service by the way, we met Mikey, Kelly and Brody for lunch at Star Pizza. Yum. Mikey is one of Taylor's best friends from aTm and we still try to get together with them as much as possible, but they are super busy and so are we so corresponding days are hard to come by! Brody just turned 3 in May and is so adorable. He is just the sweetest little boy. I hope we can get back together with them again soon. Jackson did awesome at lunch, smiled and laughed at all the appropriate times and then when food came we put him back in his car-seat, fully expecting a meltdown and instead we were treated with a sleeping baby. He is being such a good boy today! I love days like this :) After lunch we headed home (which took FOREVER because of the rain), and after some quick play time, he is sound asleep for a nap.

Check out his slideshow if you haven't received it by email yet. Taylor hasn't sent his out from his email but he will tomorrow...ahem...ahem.
Here are his month to month shots so far!
Month 1

I can't wait to see what 4 more months brings us, we love you buddy!
