Sincerely Fro Me to You - Jackson's 9 month Checkup

This week's nostalgic moments won't go too far back...just a little over 9 months to be exact. That's when we were so blessed when Jackson entered the world. He was 7 pounds and 7 least for a little while (he lost 1/2 lb that day!). We took him for his 9 month checkup yesterday and he now weighs - 18 pounds and 1 ounce! Sounds like a lot, but really, it's on the small side (15th percentile), but he's a little tall for his age (65th percentile), and if y'all have watched the videos, you know how active the little one is! Nonstop!!! Where do you think he gets that from??? Jackson is in perfect health, and we don't have to go back to the doctor until he's one year old. He told us to keep feeding him different foods. A couple of weeks ago we introduced J to meat - he's had ham and chicken. He liked the ham, and we're working on the chicken;) Here's a look back at the little man his first week on earth:

Less than a day old at the hospital...his eyes are half closed. It's hard to believe that he's already 9 months (I know those with you who have 9 year olds are probably laughing, but you remember being here, lol).

Five days old here...your Uncle Noel taking pics of us in the house. You were so calm and quiet... my how times have changed! This is and always will be one of my fav pics of us... in your scrapbook I put "She's got the whole world in her hands!"

And the next scrapbook will have this pic and say "He's got the whole world in his hands!"

For more Fro Me to You fun, visit We are THAT Family :D
