Jackson is a big boy. He weighs 15.5 pounds and is 24.5 inches long.
He also is starting to be awfully helpful. When it's time to get his diaper changed, he now lifts his bottom to help out. Jackson loves to try to stand up. Obviously he cannot stand on his own, but if you hold his hands or stand him against the back of a chair or sofa - he can stand with the best of us. He seems to thinking walking comes before rolling over, sitting up, and crawling.
Jackson is an extremely smiley baby. One of our favorite moments of the day is when he wakes up in the morning. As soon as he sees us we get a huge smile. Then, when we undo the velcro on his swaddle, he really flashes those toothless gums. Although it looks like he might be screaming below, he's actually smiling a huge smile.
This month Jackson got to meet a lot of new friends and he was introduced to a Smurf for the first time. He took his first trip out of town and his room is almost finished. He is now sleeping in his own room as well.
Jackson loves to talk and talk and talk. Mommy thought Jackson only had eyes for her, but she was wrong. Jackson loves to talk and smile and flirt with others as well, including random people behind him at church. He also likes to try to eat his fists. He is determined to fit one into his mouth.
We also discovered this month that Jackson has reflux. Luckily, it is something that typically goes away at about a year.
Oh yeah, and Jackson is trying to crawl. He's not getting anywhere, but he's definitely trying to move on his knees.
