10 Months

Last Saturday, Jacob turned 10 months. He is turning into our little boy. His face is changing and my little sunshine is becoming a big sunshine. He is still our sweet boy that we love so very much!! Jacob now has 5 teeth. He has 3 on top and 2 on the bottom. Poor guy- they seem to each come right after each other so we are due for another one. But those teeth help him eat crackers, a chicken nugget, and cereal- just to name a few. Jacob is so funny when it comes to food. He isn't a huge eater and I thought he would love to try a few table food things since he's getting older. But he usually won't try them or spits them out. I have finally gotten smart and figured out a few things. First, he loves to watch Wheel of Fortune so we tape that and watch it when I feed him food. Man, what a difference! From that distraction he will eat squash and carrots that he wouldn't before. Hey, whatever works. Then, I put a drop or two of vanilla in his milk. That has been a struggle of ours for a long time. He doesn't drink much milk during the day but the doctor says he's gaining weight so he's not worried. The vanilla has helped but he's still a stinker. Oh well, we wouldn't want him too perfect. On to sad news, Jacob has now figured out the correct way to crawl. It was kind of sad when the Jacob crawl, or worm as some called it, was gone. But, it's cute to see him do it correctly. As you can see from the pictures he's just like Dallin- All boy! He loves to be outside and I can't wait to see these two boys running around together. Jacob is so ready and wanting to walk. He loves to push his hippo around and will stand by himself sometimes. He's close and that has been really fun. Jacob truly is our Sunshine and makes us smile everyday!!!

Jacob loves to play in the dirt and has even tasted dirt. I don't think he likes it because he usually spits it out.

Yes, Jacob has found the toilet. I try to keep the doors closed or at least the lids closed but he still seems to find the toilet when I'm not looking.

I love it when Jacob pulls himself up from our bed. All you can see is his nose and eyes but boy can you see the smile all over his face. He's such a precious boy!

Yes, Jacob loves his hippo. He is getting better each day with walking with this. Look out world- before you know it he will be walking!

Drew was the same way when it came to finding ways to get him to eat. I turned on cartoons and he would eat everything and fast. So that became our routine. Only problem is he still has to watch cartoons while he eats now that he is 3 1/2!
