Jax : 9 months

This little boy has such a big part of my heart. It is amazing to me how much your heart grows with each child, but mine has doubled in size since Jax was born. Words can't describe the feelings I have for this little boy. The first year of a childs life is such a sweet time, I think God plans it that way so you fall head over heels in love with your child and then you have to keep loving him even when he enters the terrible 2's and the whining is driving you crazy. Jax is such a sweet, good natured little baby.  I am trying to savor and enjoy my little baby and all the goodness and happiness he brings to my life right now.

Jax happenings at 9 months:
*height : 29.5 inches (75%)
*weight : 21lbs 6 oz (75%)
*full of rolls and chubbs just the way I like my babies....must be all that "cream" he is drinking!
*starting to eat more table foods (toast, cheese, pancakes, bananas, goldfish, noodles and a few other little goodies)
*2 teeth, both on the bottom
*is sooooo close to crawling, he gets up on all fours and rocks back and forth and can go back to sitting but he just hasn't figured out how to get those legs moving yet. It will not be much longer.
*has the cutest little laugh ever and is VERY ticklish
*claps and waves
*is so very very cuddly and I love every bit of it
*wearing 9-12 month clothing and size 3 diapers
*loves to be held but he also is very content playing on the floor with toys (as long as he can see me).
*goes to sleep at night easily, I lay him down wide awake and hardly hear a peep from him.
*is an early morning riser (just like his brother)
*laughs and smiles whenever Colt plays with him.
*likes his binky, lovie and makes little grunting sounds when he is trying to fall asleep
*loves to take his naps in our arms (nothing better than a yummy smelling baby sleeping on your chest)

He is just too cute! I can't believe I will soon have 2 boys! Crazy!! Jax just seems like such a happy little guy! I am sure that is making life easy. We are still trying to come up with a name...we think the first name is going to be Keaton but who knows about the middle name. If we decide to have another baby we are going to be in trouble if it is a boy...we are out of names!!

I think I am beginning to hit that uncomfortable stage. I feel it more at home when I am caring for Dylan the bending, lifting, etc and getting out of bed!!! I feel like I can't possibly get any bigger! I am just counting down the days when spring break will be here. I need a vacation. =) Then the countdown really begins!
