Jack Is One Year Old!

My little Jack Jack isn't so little anymore! This morning I woke up before he did and thought all about the day he was born - the love I felt and the tender mercy he is in my life. Then I heard him rolling around and causing a ruckus in his crib. This is how I found him this morning . . . playing peek-a-boo! What a funny kid! We have hit so many milestones this year. And I am grateful for each and every one of them. I love everything about being a mother. Yes, I am grateful for the difficult days too, I am just glad to have them with Jack.

This month Jack:

- weighs 19 lbs. 6 oz.
- grew two more teeth - his top "fangs" as we like to call them. The first one came in on 12/22/09 and the second on 1/11/10.
- took seven steps on 1/12/10
- eats everything that he can feed himself - but NOTHING we feed him on a spoon
- points at objects with his index and middle fingers crossed
- slept through every night this month (except the nights we were in SLC for Christmas)!
- loves to cuddle and rock before his naps
- still is taking two naps a day (YESSS!)
- waves bye-bye
- is now drinking whole milk
- still doesn't hold his own bottle
- is sitting in a front facing car seat
- got his first case of the croup
- actually made it through all of church without too much of a fuss
- loves to read books WITH me (i.e. he reads his owns while I read aloud from another)
- is lovable and joyful and energetic
- like to climb to the top of his slide and watch the Wiggles from there
