wowzers, my baby is 9 months!

Seriously, I can't believe that my precious baby boy is 9 months old.

He has been sick for the past week. Teething/sore throat/roseola= one pitiful baby Jakson :( Despite the sore gums, 102 degree fever, sore throat and rash he is still manages to keep a smile on his face. One thing i secretly love about it though is how SNUGGLY he is with me. I will just pick him up and he buries his head in my neck. UGH- i. love. it. i was rocking him the other day and he was curled up on my chest and his feet came down to my knees. my baby is SO big. it brought me back to when he was a newborn and would curl up like that and he was so tee-nince-ee. like mommy's favorite book says, "i'll love you forever, i'll like you for always, as long as i'm living, my baby you'll be."
So anyways, that was my emotional rant for the day :)

Here is what you are up to at 9 months...

You are still in size 3 diapers.

clothes are anywhere from 9 months to 12 months.

you take an average of 4 bottles a day.

at your sick visit last week you were 20 lbs

you have 2 teeth that are stinkin' adorable. Makes that handsome smile even handsome-er :)

now that you are teething you are waking up at 1am or 4am or BOTH of those times. I will try and rock you back to sleep but even if you fall back asleep you will wake up when i lay you back down. so you win everytime and get a bottle and go back to sleep.

you have learned to clap and put your hand over your mouth to sound like an indian :) it's awesome!

you are still working on the wave :)

you LOVE food. you will eat anything, seriously. you love turkey spaghetti, tacos, chicken, all veggies and all fruit. and we can just forget pureed foods. you are so over those. you like to make a mess and feed yourself.

you are obsessed with dogs. any dog. you will follow them everywhere.

you say maaaaaa-ma now. it is so cute. you don't just say regular mama. you say maaaaaaaaaa-ma. hahaha it is awesome. and i think daddy is a little jealous ;)

you have found the stairs and love to try and crawl up them.

you pull up to standing.

you are starting to walk more flat footed now and can walk fast.

you are PERFECT. for real.

mommy and daddy just LOVE YOU and fall even more in love with you everyday. your sweet smile is contagious. you have had so many strangers tell you that they needed that smile and it just made their day. it makes your mommy so proud :) you are amazing. thanks for being YOU!

poor boogy!

For the past couple of days Jakson just hasn't been himself. Two days ago he was running a little fever, fussy, lethargic and kept making this odd noise. He woke up this morning and felt like a furnace, his temp was 100.4, so i called the dr.

I brought him in and his temp had already gone up to 102.4. We figured out the culprit. It wasn't teething, it was his throat :( poor guy. Strep came back negative so doc said it was throat virus. So it is Motrin/tylonol and rest for the weekend. yaaayyy, not.
Josh has agents that he is with all weekend so we won't see him unti Sunday morning.

What to do, what to do...

Here are a few pictures I took of jakson today, you wouldn't guess he has a temperature of 102.

i LOVE this boy. Nothing gets him in a bad mood. I wouldn't even know he was sick if it wasn't for the heat radiating off of his body!

our weekend

Friday night I dropped Jakson off at my parents house and went to pick up my hubby. We had gotten a hotel in buckhead and were off for a date night. It was SO much fun.

We ate at the lobster bar and ate so much food that we were hurting when we left. It was a fun fun date night. I love my husband and I am so excited to spend the rest of my life with this man!

The next morning we walked to breakfast at the Flying Biscuit and then hung out at the gorgeous pool until it was time to check out. It was SO much fun and we are really going to try and do this a few times a year. It was like taking a one night vacation :)

After we checked out I went and got Jakson and hung out at my parents house and their neighbors pool for a little bit, while Josh went home and did yard work. The next day we went to Josh's parents house. Jakson had a full weekend of grandparents and of course he loved every second of it! He is such a loved little boy :)

Happy Monday, here are a couple pictures of my happy boy this morning :)We are hanging out around the house today waiting for our new phones to be delivered. I feel like a little kid on Christmas morning...i can't wait to play with it!

some much needed, girl time

this past week i went to ponte vedra with some beautiful ladies in my life. just my mom, sisters and me and the BEACH! it was perfect. it was also my longest time away from jakson. that was so tough. i missed him every second of the trip. i am so thankful for my wonderful sister in law who watched him tuesday- thursday and then Josh picked him up thursday night and a good friend watched him friday while josh was at work. he did great, of course[probably didn't even notice i was gone...kidding, kinda].

sorry mom...i had to :)

i love these women

Pretty much all we did was talk, eat, layout, float, sip yummy drinks and talk some more :] our condo was just steps away from the pool and then that was just steps away from the beach. it was so perfect and some much needed bonding time with my sisters and momma. i love them and i am so thankful for our relationship we have!

...oh and we played in the rain. that was really fun :)
