Jackson is...

fill in the blank... but I say adorable AND intelligent. He is 7 months and already loving the alphabet!

Among other things Jackson is rolling over lots and scooting around in circles on his tummy. He likes to do push ups as well, uncle Chris will have to send me some pictures of that *hint, hint*. He is starting to get up on his knees and rock back and forth. He also is loving his rice cereal and has discovered green beans. While I think they smell pretty terrible, it doesn't seem to bother him. Also new in his world are four teeth. They are taking their sweet time coming all the way through, but it is fascinating watching them descend down his swollen gums and finally break through. The body is so miraculous! He really is a cute little guy and extrememly easy going. He is back to sleeping through the night which is great for me but when I miss out on sleep it takes me weeks to recover. One thing thta cracks us up is when we are eating dinner. We have been putting him in the bumbo next to the table. He leans back in it and grabs the door to our hutch, then sits back up to open the door and grins while sending the following mental message with eyes that will melt your heart "look at what I can do, aren't I cute, I can get away with anything." He is getting so big I want to put him on pause so I can enjoy this time a little longer. Knowing he is the last makes me want to treasure it so much more. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the other babies as well but there is something sentimental about the end, and that is what he is, the end of the babies in our home. Luckily we get to move on to exciting new things like camping, hiking, family baseball games, you know all those things that you put off when you have a little tiny one in tow!

I'm so glad I got to see the little guy in person before he was a full fledged toddler!
