Jackson is 9 months old. He is getting more fun each day. He is still fussy and wants to be held all the time. I am trying to embrace this time and think 'in a few years, he won't want to be held by mommy' BUT it is SO hard getting anything done during the day when he follows me crying for hours! Mommy needs a break, and then feels bad that she needs a break from her baby boy! He is still nursing and is still waking up at night. He is crawling all over and going up stairs-but can't figure out how to go DOWN. Jackson is our cuddle-bug and wants to be held, loved, kissed, hugged, cuddled with which I LOVE yet exhausts me. He is about to get more teeth-his right top incisor and top front tooth are just starting to come through.
He had his 9 month check up and here are his stats:
Height: 28 " - 50%
Weigth: 19 lbs 1 oz - 25%
Head 46.7cm - 85%
It is interesting looking back at each kid and seeing how similar/different they are. I don't see any of Nora's feature in Jackson. I would say and we have heard from others that: Nora is definitely more of a 'little Matt' and Jackson is more of a 'little Amber'. Funny!
