11 Months

I realize I didn't post anything for Jackson's 10 month birthday. We were in Wisconsin at the time, and the day came and went so fast! I can't believe that today marks his 11 months!
I continue to feel so blessed to have this little guy in our family! He is amazing, and has grown so much in the past month! I found this morning that he cut his 5th tooth! It's on the bottom left. During this past month, he has figured out crawling, which has made a huge difference for everyone! He is so much happier and doesn't get nearly as frustrated as he used too. He is everywhere, and Adam has quickly learned that if there is something he doesn't want Jackson to get, he has to put it away. I am surprised at how fast he can get around!!

I love this picture that Scott took. You can see the trail of toys he has left as he goes from one thing to the next. He is such a busy, busy boy!

Aside from crawling, Jackson has continued to just be a happy boy. We decided he is going to be a jokester. One of his favorite things to do is to bite on the spoon when you're feeding him. The other morning, Adam was laughing at him every time he bit the spoon. As soon as Jackson figured out that Adam was laughing at him, he would bite on the spoon, grin and then look over at Adam and just wait for the laugh! He does the same thing when you put sunglasses on his face. He grins and looks around, just waiting for someone to laugh at him! His personality is emerging more and more every day!

We've had such a busy month! We made our annual trip to Jetty Island. Jackson loved the sand! Here are a few pictures from the fun day!

Cute picture of cuddling with Grandma after waking up from a nap on the beach!

Jackson kept crawling in and out of this bucket to get to the ball. He was very proud of himself every time he got it out!
He also got to meet some extended family for the first time. Here he is with Grandma and Grandpa Wallis. It was fun to spend time with Aunts, Uncles and cousins!

Jackson got his first haircut this past month.
He discovered a favorite place this past month. Jackson seriously loves the shower! He loves the shower fully dressed, or at shower time. I was getting ready to get in the shower this morning, and had to go help Adam with something. When I came back into the bathroom, this is where I found Jackson.

I'm finding it hard to believe that my little baby is almost a year old. What a joy he continues to be! Happy 11 months Baby Jackson!!
