Happy nine months to our sweet Jacob!
He is a happy, excited little boy who loves to explore his house, to be on the go and to pull himself up (on furniture, his crib or mama's legs). This month, he really mastered crawling/standing on furniture - he's so interested in the world around him.
Jacob continued taking two classes per week - a swimming lesson with Daddy and a Music and Movement (Mommy and Me) class with me. Both ended last week, and we've re-signed him up for each as a fun activity during the cold winter months. Jacob loves being outside - we take walks nearly every day of the weekend, even when it's cold. :)
Jacob has two teeth - cutest smile EVER - and he loves to use them to chomp on food. This month, he expanded his palette dramatically. This month, he had his first experiences with the following new foods: scrambled eggs (prepared by his Gramps!), bread, apples, broccoli, peaches, pears, honeydew melon, cheese sticks, yogurt, banana muffins, blueberry muffins, pancakes, cheese omelet. He occasionally does a pureed food, but prefers table food by far. He loves drinking out of a sippy cup (which he holds himself) and feeding himself.
This month he traveled to Iowa twice! He enjoyed his first Thanksgiving, and loved playing with his second cousins at Thanksgiving and RFC. (Everyone loves "baby Jacob"). :) In preparation for his road trips, he was upgraded to a new big-boy carseat which he much prefers.
Happy nine months, Jacob. We love you more than words can say!
