Happy Third of a Year Jackson

This past month has been full of new adventures for us. Jackson continues to grow in size and cuteness. He is now 26 inches long and weighs 17.25 pounds! He's a big boy. Everywhere we go people comment on how big he is. In fact, a wonderfully tactful teacher at Westside asked us about our "fat baby." And to think, I was worried about whether or not he was eating enough.

During this past month Jackson has started grabbing and pulling things... (Mary - he LOVES this football you got him)
He has started trying to chew on everything in sight. I am afraid he might be getting a tooth soon.
Jackson now laughs... (click arrow to see video below)

He is much more interested in sounds...
And he has really discovered his tongue...

He can hold himself up on his tummy...He can roll over from his front to back very well and from his back to front sometimes, but mainly only makes it halfway. (click arrow to see video below)

This month Jackson had his first fall....right after...

Not this one...

But this picture...
Sorry about that Jackson. We love you J.

Laughing at people referring to "your fat baby." People are awesome. Poor guy...just wait, now that he can roll...let's just say, Violet took a trip from the couch to the floor pretty early on.

The girls and I enjoyed this post this morning. We watched the videos over and over and over...
"Me want to look at him again Mommy". Looking forward to seeing him do all this stuff in person!

He is one cute and happy kid!
Don't worry about the fall...builds character!

He's so cute. And he doesn't look fat to me at all. He must just be solid.

Bradley weighed 16 lbs at 2 months, so I've been there with the fat baby comments. Just ignore those idiots.

I too have a "bigum", as we like to call Neil. In fact, William even calls him bigum. He looks so adorable and we can't wait to meet him!!!!! I am so glad that he is big so that his cousin Neil won't hurt him. A fat baby is a good thing!!!!!!

"brudismo" was too good not to share.
