18 months!

Today, our baby boy is A YEAR AND A HALF OLD! Can you believe it?! Where has all of this time gone?

Jackson is at such a fun age right now. He learns something new everyday, and is such a sponge. He soaks it all in, and then repeats it all later. :) And he will repeat EVERYTHING. So now is the time to start being extra careful about everything he hears and sees!

We went to his 18 month check-up today, and he is doing great! He is 32 3/4 inches tall (50-75th percentile), 26 lbs 4 oz (50-75th percentile), and has a 19.5 inch head circumference (90th percentile). Huge head! Haha. I noticed a bump on one of his legs a couple weeks ago, and mentioned it to our pediatrician today. He wasn't too concerned about it, but would still like us to get an x-ray, just to be sure it isn't anything serious. We'll be making that appointment in the next week or so.

In other news, we discontinued the pacifier today. Last night, we had a talk with Jackson about how he was going to be a year and a half old today, and he was a very big boy. There are other little boys that need pacifiers more than he does, so we are going to give his pacifier to them, since he doesn't need it anymore. :) Amy said he did great at naptime today without it. He asked for it tonight at bedtime, but I reminded him that we were all done with his pacifier. He cried for about 2 minutes, and then went to sleep. I'm so proud of him!! I thought this would be MUCH more difficult. Hopefully the next few days are just as smooth.

Happy 18 months, Jackson! Mommy & Daddy are SO proud of you!! You are such a blessing, and we love to watch you learn and grow each day. Thank you for bringing so much joy to our lives, for letting us love you, and for loving us back. You are so precious to us!


Precious moments

Jackson loves to read, and has a "thing" with his dad. Every once in awhile, Jackson will bring Scott a book and want to lie down on top of him while he reads a story. Moments like this melt my heart. I love my boys!!!

A new favorite

Jackson officially discovered doorknobs, and is making sure to open doors as often as he can.

Father and son

Jackson likes to help his daddy when he's working at the desk. He loves "typing" on the computer, and digging into the desk drawer to see what he can find. Best of all, he just loves sitting in his daddy's lap!
