Going Round and Round

This time last year I was very round and dying to know who our little baby “the avocado” was going to be. I anxiously counted down the days until I got to go on maternity leave. Now, today… I reserved a location for Jackson’s first birthday! “Surprise it’s a boy and he’s almost a year old!” WOW! Where has the time gone?

Little Fish

Today Jackson had his first swim class. He is a little fish! He is so comfortable in the water. He loves the bath tub so I thought swim lessons would be fun. Jackson has no fear, smiling, splashing, leaning out into the water from the moment we got in the pool. He even put his face in once or twice but we couldn’t dunk him. Our teacher Miss Brittany says that once he learns to close his mouth and eyes in the water then we can dunk him. Right now Jackson kicks and squirms around with his mouth wide open like the point of it all is to scoop up as much water as possible in his mouth. Silly boy.

More Milestones!

We have communication! Jackson has begun to sign! His first sign and most often used is “more.” He’s so cute eating his cheerios or puffs. He begins signing “more” when the table is empty of food but he still has two or three puffs in his clutches. And the other day he signed “milk” after he finished his bottle then followed it up with “more.” He also signs “more” when I’m changing his diaper or when he’s playing and chasing after the dogs. So, not sure that we have established what “more” means but it’s a start.

Another big and exciting milestone… Jackson took his first step unassisted and it was at home in front of mom and dad! We are both so excited for Jackson and his milestones and so glad that we didn’t miss his first step.

IHOP

If Jackson had a facebook account today’s post would read…. “Jackson became a Fan of IHOP.” This morning we went to IHOP for breakfast with Great Grandma, Grandma & Grandpa. Where we introduced Jackson to pancakes (hold the syrup). He thought buttermilk pancakes were quite a treat until I gave him a bite of blueberry pancakes. “YUM!” He ate and ate his pancake and I picked out blueberries to feed him. “Double yum!” His little face and hands were stained blue from the berry juice but he didn’t care and neither did I. He only paused from eating occassionally to chug some apple juice then resumed eating. How wonderful and satisfying it must be to discover new delicious foods all the time.
When we got home Jackson was asleep. Total food coma. He took a longer nap than usual and woke up in a wonderfully smiley mood. Guess we need to have pancakes more often :)

Excitement!

Today’s excitement….
Today Jackson had a picnic in the driveway while mom cleaned out her car. For the most part, uneventful. But then came… the street sweeper! So loud and big, it kicked up breeze as it passed by us. Jackson was wide eyed in anticipation as he heard it before he saw it. Then as it approached his hands slapped down on the high chair, gripping the table top, arms stiff with excitement. He watched it all the down the street and back up passed us. What an experience (for him)!

A peek into our world at 9 months….

“Aaahhhhaahhha! Mu Mmma Muuuma, Duudu, Ahhhahhha!” Jackson is on the move, cruising along furniture and crawling all over the house. He’s exploring the taste and feel of everything and constantly babbling, telling us all about his explorations. Occasionally he’ll through in a good belly laugh and a rassberry noise. He’s just figuring out how to wave, so cute! But all this fun and mobility doesn’t come without a cost. We have had our first, second, third and I don’t know I’ve lost count of the number of bumps and bruises. Jackson is fearless, already letting go trying to stand alone. Of course that doesn’t always work out as planned and he often falls over like a tree. “Timber!” The dogs have also encountered a fair number of injuries during Jackson’s new found mobility, including hair pulling, pinching and tail grabbing. Once hovering over Jackson checking him out curiously, now they generally run the other direction when they see him. Oh, ya I almost forgot Jackson has four teeth now. He’s beginning to eat big kid food like cheese, diced fruit, meat, things that require chewing. Not only are his little jaw hard at work eating food. He’s biting and chewing everything. Like right now while I’m typing…he’s biting an envelope, drooling on the couch then shifting to the couch completely chomping on the cushion then of course he finds my leg, “ouch!” Those jaws are strong and his teeth sharp!

Well I hope you enjoyed this little peek into our daily life :)

We have taken a lot of videos recently. Hopefully I will soon learn how to put them on U tube or some other forum to share with you all.

Feeding the Ducks

Today Jackson and I went to Lake Murray to feed the ducks. (Something I haven’t done since, I don’t know when.) The ducks came flocking over just seeing us on the shore. Then we started tossing out our pieces of bread and watched as they came closer and closer. Jackson was very silent and observing while the ducks gathered and ate. I kept looking at him then the ducks, back at him and back at the ducks. He seemed to be enjoying himself. Then I looked over at the ducks for just a moment to long. When I turned to looked back at Jackson he had a fist full of bread and was shoving it into his mouth. I couldn’t help but giggle. Of course he would try to eat the duck food. Why would I think that he wouldn’t? After that Jackson was no longer interested in the ducks. He just kept reaching for the bread trying to finish his snack.

Jackson’s Explorations

Busy day at the Colt house today. Jackson has discovered the tupperware cupboard, dog dishes are fully explored (kibble in mouth) and he’s working on figuring out the dog door. We’re in so much trouble :) Poor Peaches and Lola will now have to have scheduled drinking and eating times. Pulling dog food out of your babies mouth is just a bit disturbing. Not to mention the cold bath he took in the water bowl.

Peek a Boo!

This morning Jackson initiated a game of peek a boo! Always a fan of this game he laughs and giggles while anyone plays this with him. But this morning while we were in the bathroom he stood at the tub with the shower curtain in one hand and moved it in front of him to hide him. Then he quickly moved the curtain back so he could be seen. He was all smiles when he saw me. This went on for a good while, him hiding behind the curtain then peeking out grinning. So cute!

Drool, drool and more drool

Jackson is currently working on tooth number three! His top front tooth has popped through! Although it is rarely visible, it’s just barely poking through the gums. I was so excited to see another tooth. This boy likes to eat, he needs more teeth! But just three teeth? It’s a little hillbilly. Then I noticed, if you look really close, you can see top tooth number two just waiting to move down through the gums. So close! Come on! So until that fourth tooth pops through Jackson is a hillbilly, drooly monster. But the he is the cutest little monster I know! Oh, and a mobile monster at that. As of today he is not just crawling. He has coordinated all limbs and realized that he IS mobile. He has been zooming around every room of the house exploring everything. So far his favorite spot in the house is Lola’s bowl. Twice I’ve pried dog kibble from his fingers just as it touched his lips. Multiple times I’ve chased him to her bowl and distracted his attention to something else and once he just was on all fours next to Lola as she ate from her bowl with his hand mixing and churning all the kibble for her while she ate.
