Fun in the Fountains

On Wednesday, I met up with Lindsay and Becca (and kiddos) at Coolidge! 

We hung out in the grass for a bit.



Playing in the fountains! It was Jack's first time!!

...and he doesn't look happy, but he had fun!

Then... he passed out in his stroller. :)

Then Becca and the kids had to leave, so Lindsay and I went for a walk.

sweet friends!

staying hydrated

We had a great time!! Can't wait to do it again soon!

Bonnie's Baby Shower

On Saturday Jack and I went to a baby shower for Bonnie & Ben! They have a sweet baby boy due in August! 

The food was yuuuuuummy!

The gifts were abundant!

Even Jack got gifts! (Early birthday presents from the Parkers and the Brannans!)

Jack playing with Aunt Liz! I love this picture!!

They got some great stuff!

Poor baby was quite pooped... (but wouldn't actually take a nap at ALL Saturday!)

Such a fun time with sweet family!

3rd Foods Feast - and 3 teeth!

Tonight Jack ate 3rd foods like a CHAMP!! This is big, people! He has HATED textures in his food and has always gagged a little when he eats anything with chunks in it. 

Two nights ago, I was eating cucumbers (from Granddaddy Lawhorn's garden), and got a small piece to give to Little Man, assuming he wouldn't want it. Well, he ate it. And another. And another. THEN I put it on his tray and he didn't want to pick it up, but he did. And he ate even more! :) So that was fun.

Then tonight I thought I would see if he would like one of the 3rd foods (Pasta Primavera), assuming he would hate it. And guess what?! He ate the whole thing!

And have we talked about his obsession with "puffs"? Oh man, he's all about them. 

I think more finger foods are in our future!

AND, how could I forget?! Jack got his third tooth today! It's not one of the top front two teeth, it's the tooth to the left of the front tooth, if that makes any sense at all. :) I'll try to get a picture soon!

Loving Life Lately

Hello my sweet friends! Here's what we've been up to lately!

My mom got an awesome LeapFrog table from a friend and Jack LOOOVES it!

Speaking of Mimi (my mom)... Jack gets REALLY excited when he knows he's going to Mimi and Poppy's house!

One day last week, we went to a playgroup with some new friends and Jack got to play in a jumping toy that he was crazy about!

We also went to see Grandmother & Granddaddy Cox! 

This video makes me laugh and smile!

And finally, Jack is OB-SESSED with ceiling fans. Wherever we go, he always looks for fans! And if he finds one, boy oh boy, we better stay close or he gets super sad. So here's a video of him crawling down our hallway, on his way to find the ceiling fan in the office/guest room! 
Yes, he's wearing a disposable! ::gasp!:: It was laundry day and we were OUT OF CLEAN CLOTH DIAPERS. Sometimes you just gotta roll with it. :)

We have been having a great summer so far! Jack is so much fun right now, I can't believe we've been parents for almost a year now!

2 Months: 11lbs 12oz, 24in long
3 Months: 13lbs 6oz, 25 3/4in long

10 Months: 19lbs 4oz, 29 3/4in long
11 Months: 19lbs 6oz, 30 1/4in long

I can't believe that it's almost been a year. 
This sweet, amazing, wonderful, precious child is my world.

Here is what Jack is up to at 11 months:
  • He still has 2 teefers (teeth) and no sign of any new ones! 
  • He is eating the same as last month, though now he is CRAAAAAZY about "puffs" (aka baby CRACK). He is doing a great job feeding himself puffs and "baby cheetos" but will not touch table food or chunky baby foods. 
  • He has been sleeping WONDERFULLY!! Yay yay yay! He goes to bed at 7:30pm, wakes up about 10pm or so to nurse one last time, then sleeps until about 7:30am. He still wakes up about 2 or 3 every once in a while, but overall we are doing SO MUCH BETTER on nighttime these days!! Whoo hooooooo!!
  • He can say so many words now - it is so exciting! Jack can say: DaDa, MaMa, duck (more like "dut"), ball, ding (we heard a bell when someone walked in a store and I said "Can you say ding ding ding?" and sure enough - he did!), and wow. :)
  • Jack can also whistle! HILARIOUS. He puts his lips in the perfect O shape and then sucks in and blows out - he can whistle! 
  • His favorite thing right now is ceiling fans. Seriously! Jason will say "Do you want to go see the fan?" (which is in our guest room/office) and he goes crazy and giggles!! We're planning to put one in his room this weekend. :)
And now a video of Jack on his eleven month mirthday (his last MIRTHDAY before his birthday!):

And SOMETHING NEW!!! Jack doesn't like to "perform" on video, but I was able to record a voice memo on my phone of him talking in the car the other day, so click below to hear him talking!
