Jackson - 9 months old

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%

compared to Nora's 9 month check up.
Nora's Height: 27-3/4" 55%
Nora's Weight: 18 lbs. 8.5oz 45%
Nora's Head Circumference: 41.8cm 5%

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!
