We missed Jack’s 8 month update on the blog while we were on the cruise. So I thought I would take a minute to document what he up to these days.
He is professional at standing up to everything stable and not so professional at the unstable things which has led to many falls and tears. He is even starting to pull himself up to me while I’m in the kitchen. He loves standing up. I think I better move that crib matress down to the last notch soon. I don’t want him to figure out how to climb out just yet. He also, for the most part, knows how to get back down and is pretty comfortable just holding on with one hand and looking around.
He tried many new things on our cruise including ice cream, pineapple, broccoli and toast. He loved everything. He still eats his baby food pretty good except for the rice cereal. So we will continue with that for a little while longer. But it is nice to know that he will be a good eater of normal food. And he loves drinking from his sippy cup too.
We have been working on sleeping through the night since we have been home from the cruise. And he has taken to it quite nicely so far. I know by publicly announcing our success there is a good chance we will have a hard night in the near future. But last night he slept completely through without a peep. 7:30 pm-7am. We have had a fun time seeing his positions in the morning. We loved this one. The infamous baby sleeping with their cute bum bum in the air.
He found the toilet paper for the second time this morning (I wasn’t fast enough the first time to capture a photo before he crashed between the cupboards and toilet!). He thinks he is so funny, and so do I really. He is becoming quite the chatter box lately. He can say mamama and dadada. I am working on waving bye bye and I am pretty sure he knows what it means when I say “Give mommy kisses” because occasionally he will pause and look at me open mouthed. He loves his books a lot. He loves to turn the pages back and forth.
We love our Jack Jack!
