10 Months Today!

Jake is the big 10 months old today. It is so fun to watch him grow and learn. He is standing, with improved balance, but no steps just yet .... thank goodness. He started clapping his hands a few weeks ago, which is so cute. He is also screaming bloody murder in protest when we take something from him... which is NOT so cute! He is not just jabbering like crazy but jabbers with more and more amplification each day. He is so sweet and loving though, he saw Keith give me a kiss on the forehead, then he proceded to give me the famous open mouth baby slobbery kiss on my nose. I kid you not, my entire nose was in his mouth! It's the thought that counts! Loa is becoming quite the buddy as well. He wants her in his room at bedtime, and is very anxious to try her raw hide bones. He also loves to watch her as we take them for walks and when she swims in the playa lakes. We treasure each day and are excited for the next with this little booger!

9 Months (Feb 23rd)

So again I am late getting pictures up of Jake at nine months; however these pictures are from 2/23, his 9 month birthday! Jake is doing great, we saw Dr. Steve on the 23rd. Jake weighed 19lbs and 6 ounces (20th percentile). He was 28 1/4 inches long (65th percentile). Dr. Steve is a little worried about his weight but really just thinks he is going to be tall and skinny. (For those of you that haven't known Keith for long, he weighed 150 lbs soaking wet when he graduated high school!!) So Jake comes by it honestly! The past month he has mastered the "sprint crawl", especially when he has something that he knows he is not to have. He is also pulling up with ease and beginning to furniture walk for a few steps, here and there. He is able, with lots of concentration, to pick up a puff and eat it; however, is not yet tolerating any foods with lumps (without gagging that is). Jake also is jabbering like crazy and loves to tell us all about it.... whatever "it" is! He moved up to the nursery 2 last Monday and is doing well, but we will forever love his nursery 1 teacher, Jeannie, she is awesome. This maybe more stats than anyone wanted, but really it is so I can remember when he did what, so that I can document in Jakes baby book!
