We’ve been busy…we’ve spent a lot of time with family. Justin’s cousins came for a night and we had a great time catching up with them, I was having such a good time that I didn’t pick up my camera once. We also drove in to visit my grandma and had dinner with some of my aunts, uncles and cousins. I’ll share more about that later. Justin went to Iowa for 3 days for a conference so I got a taste of what it is like to be a single mom. All went well, but I was so glad when he came home! And last week we went out to dinner to celebrate our 7 year wedding anniversary! So I am a bit behind…I did take Jacob’s weekly pictures every Sunday but have not had time to post them. So here goes…
A lot has been happening with Jacob in the past few weeks too! While he has been babbling for quite some time now, he is now stringing together sounds to say Da Da and Ma Ma. His favorite thing to do these days is clap, now everything is worthy of a round of applause! And he figured out how to push himself into a sitting position from his tummy (and is so proud of himself every time he does it and starts clapping the second he is upright). It is so cute to watch him and fun to see his mobility expanding, but the challenging thing is it is taking longer for him to go down to sleep since he immediately pushes himself into a sitting position when you put him in his crib and babbles and claps while enjoying the new perspective.
Next week is Jacob’s follow up appointment with his pediatrician and I have a feeling once we find out how tall he is it will be time to get a new car seat since he seems to be quickly outgrowing his. I got tired of squeezing him in his 6 month clothes and finally made the time to get the box out with his 9 month old clothes, so he is no longer breaking out the bottoms of his PJs (for now). While I was doing his laundry this week, I came to the realization that he gets a whole new wardrobe pretty much every other month, lucky guy! We’ll be back soon 🙂
