9 Months

The past 9 months seem to have flown by in a heartbeat. This little wild man is even more wiggly and mobile than his older brother was! He is one super fast crawling machine and pulling up on everything. He learned to clap and give high fives. He is finally sleeping all night. He is getting his 7th tooth. Since he started moving, he has not slowed down one bit. He loves his big brother and looks up to him so much. Watching them develop their brother relationship makes my heart sooo happy. He hates anytime someone tries to clean his face off (He is always super dirty) and getting his face wet. He is already becoming very independent and insists on feeding himself at meal times. That makes him even more messy!

I was only able to get one good monthly picture this month. Here are some out takes that really do highlight his inability to sit still!!

IMG_8551^Even tried to let him stand for one and as you can see; It’s blurry.^

My crazy fast wild man… I love him so!

I will have to start planning a first birthday soon. Until next week, XOXO.

A Big First Year

My baby boy turns 1 year old on Monday. This has been the fastest year of my life! I am so blessed to be Jake’s mommy. It is so much fun looking back over his monthly block pictures I took. Seeing how much he has grown this past year. You can tell I got a professional camera 6 months in, so they don’t all match exactly, but I still love them all. I especially love how each photo captures new learned skills and his developing personality each month.

And then Monthly Pictures with his Emma dog! It has been so exciting watching these two become friends and learn about each other this first year. They have many years of getting into trouble ahead of them.
