Jackson is 32 Weeks Old!

Jackson turned 32 weeks this past Thursday. 

When we went to the Dr. on Monday he weighed 21.1 pounds. He's such a big boy!

He has gotten good at picking up the little puff snacks and putting them in his mouth. It keeps him busy while we're eating dinner. :-)

He's still wearing 12 and 18 month clothes. Still taking 6 ounce bottles every 4 hours. He eats a jar or two of baby food each day along with some oatmeal or rice cereal.

He's learning how to drink out of a sippy cup. We have to hold it or else he just plays with it, but he has figured out how to drink out a Nuk sippy cup that we have for him. He takes some juice and water out of it. 

We tried some yogurt bites this week and he really like them. He also had a popsicle last night and LOVED that. He's had some vanilla ice-cream and yogurt and loves it ALL!! He really just loves all food.

He's saying "Mama" more regularly now. Which I am loving! That and "Baba" are his two favorite things to say.

He's sleeping fairly well at night. He goes to bed at around 9:00 and wakes up around 1 or 2 times a night to eat. He then wakes up for the day between 6 and 8, but goes down for a nap in the morning, early afternoon and then a short nap in the late afternoon.

He's crawling around like crazy and pulling up on everything. He will hold with only one hand sometimes and even let go once and stood there for a few seconds. If I had to bet, he'll probably walk long before he turns one.

He does not like diaper changes and getting his clothes changed these day. He is trying to roll over the entire time. Its a challenge to say the least. I have a feeling he's going to be very strong willed. Oh joy!

He's such a sweet boy and we are so blessed to have him in our lives. Its so fun to see him learn and grow. :-)

We love you sweet Jackson. ♥

8 months already! And he is saying Mama?! AAHHH I bet you just feel over the moon.

Btw, do you have a web cam? I was thinking about doing this blog link up? I'll have to ask Chris if our computr has a camera on it.

I'm so jealous that he is saying mama. We get dada and baba and lots of squeals, but no mama yet.

He's so cute and I can totally relate to the challenge that is diaper and outfit changes. Rolling over is way more fun to them I guess.
