First of all, I can't believe Jackson has already been with us for four whole months! Second, I can't believe Jackson has only been with us four months! As I said before, the third month was truly blissful. I'm not so sure about month four. He is showing definite signs of teething now and I'm somewhat nervous about what's ahead. Pray for me! If there are any moms reading this who want to pass on their best "how to survive teething" tips, please leave me some comments.
Jackson is 16 pounds now. He can almost reach his toes to his mouth. In fact, he wants everything in his mouth. He's drooling like crazy which is really gross, but he doesn't mind it at all. One new development is that if you hold him facing out and leaning back a bit, he attempts to sit himself up straight. He also spit for the first time the other day. Yes, spitting is different from drooling. He also seems to get more control over his hands every day.
Remember when I talked about my hotsling? Well, Jackson just loves it. He literally laughs when I put him in it. He loves facing out. The only problem is when I'm walking through the mall or church or somewhere thinking, "Oh, me and my baby are so cute...la la la la la" he could totally have spit up all over his face and I wouldn't know it. It's definitely humbling when someone points it out to you.
Curtis and I celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary on June 15. We went to see Nacho Libre (we both liked it). Our friends Corey and Andy got married in Austin over the weekend at the Mansion at Judge's Hill and we got to stay there. What a neat place! Go there if you have the opportunity. We're really thankful for the journey we've had together so far. I have an amazing husband and I fall more in love with him every time I see my son smile and laugh when his dad walks in the room.
