First Day of School 2016

We are about halfway done with our first full week of school. Sullivan is still attending the same place but in a different class. From what I've heard from him, is he loves school and only has one boy from last year in his class this year. Our morning routines are going well, unlike last year it took him a while to adjust. 

I can't wait to see what he all learns this year and to see how mature he gets.

9 Months Jett

On Monday Jett turned another month older. Can you believe this kid is 9 months old already? Each new month is bittersweet. Happy to see my littlest growing and getting bigger and learning but sad to see another month gone in a blink of eye. Each night we I rock him to sleep I kiss his fuzzy little hair and breath in all his baby smells because some day, I'm going to really miss those.

Jett at 9 months is a wild child. He's fearless and curious which is a dangerous combination. Mike and I joke thinking he's part pittbull and part monkey. He walks with a walker, climbs on just about anything he can step on or pull himself up in, loves food and biting peoples toes, and makes Elvis faces. He can do some funny faces but our favorite is the Elvis lip curl. He's a joy even though we are still working on sleeping through the night still. Someday we'll get there. 

Jett has 4 teeth, blue eyes and what looks like little sprouts of red hair or at least red highlights. At his recent doctor appointment he's a petite little guy, putting him in the 19th percentile for height and 28th percentile for weight. He loves doing things independently and loves to follow people around, especially his older brother. 

Other favorites include his taggie blanket or any blankets, bathrooms, stroller rides, splashing in the tub, yogurt melts, being naked, and wrestling with the boys.

First Timers

This past week and weekend we had a couple of first. 

1. Sullivan's first trip to The Falls. He's been begging us to go there every time we see it on the highway. On Saturday evening we had no plans, so an early dinner and what looked to be a quiet pool turned into the perfect little trip. We arrived two hours before closing thinking this would be perfect time. Enough for him to play and wear him out for bed, not super hot or sunny, and hoping everyone else in Cedar Falls had other plans leaving him to explore it all. 

I think the pictures speak for themselves. He had a blast! He loved going  down the slides with dad, hiding in the tunnel when the big bucket of water dowsed the little kids, climbing on top the alligator heads, and just swimming around making friends with others in the pool. Even if we don't make it again this year, it was fun and we'll sure be back soon. 

2. Jett is walking! Jett is cruising around with his little walker. At 8 months, he's been walking around furniture and so I busted out the little walker and he marched like a pro down our hallway. He loves it.
