Hear ye, hear ye!

Listen up, y'all! Jacob's got something to say:

For several months, the only sounds Jacob would make were a boisterous grunt or a high-pitched squeal. We were worried he was behind in language development, although everyone told us boys develop language slower than girls.

A couple weeks ago, we finally heard Jacob mutter "dadada" under his breath. Heck yea, I though, he likes me more! Mom does all the work and Dad gets all the credit.

Yea, that thought quickly backfired.

At 6:30 one morning, we heard Jacob moving around in his crib. Erin and I were hoping he would go back to sleep. Minutes later we heard "dadada" coming from the monitor. That's when Erin turned to me and said, "he's calling for you, dad."

Ugh... coming.

Next on his vocabulary list is "Rock Chalk Jayhawk" and I suppose "Hook 'Em Horns." "Rocky Top," however, will be omitted from his lexicon.


Here's a cute video of Jacob getting bit by the giggle bug.

No destination, no problem

We love that the weather is starting to warm up because we can take Jacob outside to play and walk around. Boy, does he walk around... and around, and around and around.

Jacob is 11 months

WOW! JACOB IS 11 MONTHS! Where has the time gone? I remember this time last year, I was so uncomfortable and just ready to have my baby.

Things Jacob has learned in the past couple of months:
-Drink out of a sippy cup
-clap- he claps ALL the time
- walk
-eat only table foods (no more purees for Jacob)
-Hold his own bottle (finally)
-Throw a temper tantrum when upset and doesnt get his way
-ALSO, Jacob now has 6 teeth. 2 on the bottom and 4 on the top

Jacob is walking everywhere. When we sit him on our lap, he cries and squirms just so we'll put him down and he can walk some more.

Here's a video that follows Jacob's progression as he learns to walk.

Yup... Jacob is in Daycare now

So now that Nate's job hours are changing he will soon have to commute to Murfreesboro, we decided to put Jacob in Daycare. He is in a home daycare which makes me feel better. I was very upset and nervous about putting him in Daycare but he seems to enjoy it and he fits in perfectly. He is starting to get used to their schedule also. here are some daycare pics.
