To pass some of the extra time this holiday break we went for a walk around Tempe Town Lake. We had a lot of fun and it was great to be outside. It was a little cold and windy, but still a nice change from 10o degrees! Jackson loved to be with his daddy and liked the shoulder ride, even though he still can't hold on by himself. He just has the best smile. Don't ya think?!

Thanksgiving was fun. We had it with Mikelle's family. There were about 40 of us, so we had it at a church in Mesa. The food and company were both great. Jackson didn't like much of the food, and he was so sleepy he slept through half of dinner. He loves his Aunt Kristin.

This is a great picture of Jackson's hair. He doesn't have too much, but what he does have is super blond on mostly on the top of his head. We love to spike it or give him a fauxhawk. Plus check out his face. Hilarious, but oh so cute!

Here are Jackson's 10 months photos. He is getting so big. Crawling like crazy and really hoping to walk soon. He tries so hard to stand, and can get you to hold his hand and walk with him when he wants. He is so smart and knows what he wants, if only we knew what he wants!

Here Jackson is supporting BYU. Bobby has already made it clear that Jackson will most likely be going there. The hat may be a little big, but he still looks dang cute!

One day Mikelle was able to watch Tessa and Trenton while Kendra went to the cannery. Amber came over to help since three kids are a lot for Mikelle and her back. The playground was a big hit. Trenton had a lot of fun helping Jackson down the slide and on the swing.Jackson loves the swing, so it's great the weather here is cooling off. They all had so much fun, don't let Jackson's sad face on the slide fool you! His cousin might have kicked him.

Well, here are a few pictures of Jackson with his Grandpa Glas. We got to play with Bobby's dad for a few days around Halloween as he was in town for business. We mostly just hung-out, and it was great to have him here. Jackson hasn't seen him since he was about 2 months, so it was great for them to get to know each other. Everyone thinks Jackson looks most like his Grandpa Glas. Aren't they so cute?!

So we went to the Doctor today for Jackson's 9 month check-up. He's just healthy as a horse. He's 21 lbs., 60% and 29 inches, 75%. Although, he feels much heavier than that! Plus, he started crawling yesterday! He is also pulling himself up and cruising on furniture. The doctor says she thinks he will walk early. Is that good thing? We are excited, but not all at the same time!

Here are our Halloween pictures! I know you were all holding your breath! If you can't tell, Bobby was Thor, Mikelle was Wonder Woman, and Jackson was Captain America. He even kept his hat on for about half the time! As you can tell Jackson was a little sleepy. He missed his afternoon nap, but as long as we kept moving, he was okay with Trick-or-Treating. We went with Barry and Kendra and their kids for a little while, then we met up with Bobby's dad and went to dinner. We looked good eating out at Outback, and we didn't feel silly at all!! Of course we ditched the wigs.

Here are a few pictures of Jackson with our pumpkins for Halloween. He had his own little one, but then helped carve the big one. Really, he hated the insides of the pumpkin. He takes after his daddy there! Maybe he will grow out of that.

Well, here are his 9 month photos. They were so hard to get. He doesn't want to sit still, and he really didn't want to lie on his back. He is all smiles though, and that is the really important thing! We go see the doctor next week, so we will update you with his stats then, but it is safe to say he is huge! 

Jackson has started chomping on everything he can get his hands on. The day he  started sitting up on his own I had put him in his crib for a nap. He started crying, but then a minute later was quiet. I was shocked because he has yet to fall asleep for a nap on his own. I peeked into his room, and I found him chewing on his crib.The first picture shows little wood shards on his face and shirt. There are now lots of little teeth scrapes on the side of his crib. Needless to say, we had to lower the mattress that day!

We went to Prescott the first weekend in October and thought it would be fun to go to a pumpkin patch and play. Of course, the weather didn't think that was a good idea. It started to pour about half way there, but we hoped it would stop by the time we got there. When we got there, it was just sprinkling, so we went for it. Of course, it was pouring a few minutes later. We got some kettle corn and some dang cute pictures, but that was about it. We didn't even get to see tha anilmals, bummer. For those of you who don't recognize the cute boy standing next to Amber, that is her boyfriend, Anson.

This picture is a little older, but it is so cute. You can see where Jackson got his eyes from. Father and son, so handsome.
