JR in stats

Our fair son has been doing great...sleeping, eating, chatting, etc! We went to the doctor today and he weighs in at 25 pounds, and is 30 1/2 inches tall. He's a little short, but he makes up for it in big ways:

Teeth count: 8! His molars came in and he didn't even fuss about it!

Words: Da-da, ma-ma, uh-oh, hey, whoa, ball, "dis", "dat"....he is working on bird, boat, and book. He also says "mmmm.." when you ask if he is hungry! It is precious!

Actions: Brings a toy when asked, points at eyes, nose, ears, and mouth when asked, dances, throws balls, claps, plays peek-a-boo, waves hello/goodbye, turns pages of books and points to pages, pulls up and cruises on furniture, walks behind push toys, goes up and down stairs, walks holding on to your hand (otherwise he's a knee-walker!), and as of last night, he was going from sitting to standing without holding on! He is feeding himself and trying to use baby fork and spoon (loves to eat!), and puts the phone/cell phone to his ear and says, "heeeey".He is also starting to pay attention to cartoons on t.v. and tries to brush his hair. His level of independence is growing daily!

FUN with Polk

JR and Polk have had some bonding moments over the past two weeks. JR pounces and pets; Polk just lies there and takes it. What a good dog!

Trip to Douglas!

We had a wonderful trip to Douglas, Georgia a few weekends ago to see my dad and Joan. We have discovered the trick to long road trips is driving at night, while baby sleeps. JR did great in the car and had a blast with his PawPa and Grandmother.
