This sweet precious boy has officially been in our lives for a year now!! We cannot believe how lucky we are to be his parents. I mean, seriously. I get to hang out with this kid EVERY DAY!!

There are no words. Thank you Lord for your blessings.

This has been a HUGE month for little man!! 

Here is what Jack is up to at 12 months:
  • As of today (a week past his b'day), he has 4 teeth with 3 more coming any day now! The third tooth showed up on June 15th (11.5 mo) and the fourth showed up this past Monday, July 2nd. We were at the doctor for his 1 year check-up and Dr. Shumate said, "Yeah, I see his three teeth on the bottom," and I'm like... uh.. he only has two on the bottom. That one must have sprouted this morning! :) No wonder little man has been a little grumpy at night. 
  • Another big change this month is that he is the KING of finger foods now! At 11 months, he wouldn't touch table food other than puffs, but in the middle of the month I gave him some chunkier 3rd foods and he handled them really well! Then last weekend (the Friday night before his b'day) I gave him some diced carrots and peas and he went to town!! Since then we've been really good about letting him try almost anything we're eating, and he hasn't turned anything down yet! 
  • Also last weekend, he decided he would finally "finger walk" with us! He typically goes all jello legs on me, but is now really excited to walk with help! And a few times we've helped him stand up and then let go and he's stood by himself for 5-10 seconds! I can't believe how big he's getting!!!
  • Nighttime has been pretty good, although we are typically up twice each night. I blame teething.
  • Can say all the words I mentioned last time, plus he's started saying kitty! It's not every time, but he's said it several times when she comes into the room. 
  • He's also SO good about recognizing words I say. Like when I ask him to find his "shaky friend" (a little toy), his little duck, his ball, Mickey, etc. he can almost always find them!
  • Still LOVES ceiling fans! Jason installed one in Jack's room and one in our bedroom, so now we have 3 he gets to look at!
And now a video of Jack for his actual BIRTHDAY!!
