Jackson funnies

3 year old are so funny :)

Jackson, watching me sweep the kitchen: "Momma, did you know that a Swiffer broom works better than a regular broom?"

While I'm brushing my teeth...
J: Are your teeth yellowing?
Me: yes, everyone's teeth get a little yellow.
J: Do you need some Colgate Total?

-maybe he'll go into advertising when he gets older??? Ha!-

J brought me a truck: "Do you know what this is on the back of the truck?" Me: "It's a cage!" J: "No, it's a triangular prism." And he was right. What?!

J: Am I little?
Me: Well, your smaller than me.
J: So you're big?
Me: Bigger than you.
J: So that means Daddy is extra large!

Jackson saw me wearing a pair of socks I had borrowed from my sister...
J: Why are you wearing those socks?
Me: Remember, I borrowed them from Aunt Ali.
J: Borrow means you're going to give the back. I think you just stole them.

After going to Petsmart to look at animals...
Me: Ok, it's time to go.
J: But we didn't get to see the horses, unicorns, and cows!
(He was completely serious)

Cooper - 10 Months

Cooper - You are 10 months old!

You finally hit 15 lbs (barely) and you're probably still around 28 in (40%). We're still watching your weight, but you eat so much, and you are SO ACTIVE, I'm not too concerned. You are such a fun baby!

Baby food is dead to you. Actually, you pretty much dislike anything that I have to spoon feed you (you'll still let me feed you yogurt). You are such a good eater! You will eat any veggie or fruit I give you. You love the pouches that you can feed yourself. You're still nursing about every 3-4 hours, and you still take a pacifier at nap time and bedtime.

Sleep is getting better. You usually go to bed around 8 p.m. And only wake up once to eat, around 4 am. Then you sleep until around 7 a.m. Naps are good. You take 2 2-hour naps, as long as we're at home. You don't like to nap on-the-go. You want your bed!

You are walking. practically running. Most people could tell by the time you were a couple weeks old that you would be a mover, and we couldn't have been more right. I don't see us taking down the baby gates anytime soon, because you want to get into everything. You have a new bruise every other day because you don't slow down, which ultimately means you fall. A LOT. But you're pretty tough, because you rarely cry about it. You are so full of personality! You have started dancing to music, and you wave and say "bye-bye!" you will also kid of say "Dada," "Jack Jack," and "Yaya." You light up when your daddy gets home everyday. You also love when you're brother wakes up in the mornings. I'm pretty sure that your disappointed on the mornings that you get up before he does. You look for him and babble about him until he wakes up. It's pretty much adorable.

You are so much fun, Cooper. You teach me something new everyday, and I'm so glad you're a part of our family. I can't wait to see what the next few months are like!
