i simply can’t believe it!
4 more days…
in 4 weeks he will be *gulp* one year old.
how surreal is that?!!?!?!?

jace at nearly 11 months old calls himself “bubba”, says ‘mama’, “shishe” (sissy), and ‘more’. he signs “daddy” perfectly.

he can throw a ball and catch it very well! he continually surprises us.

he is in love with the song, “rollin in the deep” by adele. it is currently his top favorite over ‘bumble bee’ by laurie berkner.

he slither crawls, crawls on all fours, pulls himself up, walks along furniture. he refuses to walk behind a push town after falling and hurting himself a couple times but is fully capable! ๐Ÿ™‚

he has stood up by himself several times (without holding on to anything) but absolutely refuses to do it most of the time. i’ve begun telling him he can do it and to stop being a wuss and to keep trying. in a very kind tone of voice but he’s made significant progress since i’ve started coaching him. boys! *eye roll*

we have this red bouncy ball that we got at old navy in quincy for 25 cents out of a giant gumball machine. it is his FAVORITE ball. if he is fussing, i can ask him where his red ball is and he will start looking everywhere for it and will entertain ย himself for a good 45 minutes regardless if he is tired or hungry.

he LOVES our dog lucy.

enjoys being outside. eating grass, dirt, bugs… crawling in the grass. the whole bit.

loves wrestling with anyone that is willing but his favorite is lizzie.

jumping on the bed with sissy trumps it all….

this is often the sight in the morning. love me some bed head!

is ready to ride a bike but cant figure out how to tell his legs to push, instead he uses his whole body to ‘scoot/thrust’ on the bike to make it move forward or reverse.

dances like a crazy lil man.

LOVES his swing!

i love when he is playing on the floor and i walk by and he reaches his arms high-into-the-sky and says “up” ย with a sweet little smile ๐Ÿ™‚ (the “up” part only happened one time, but the rest happens hundreds of times in a day)

he’s such a cool dude

jace has 4 teeth. his 5th popped through last week and went back inside.

he weighs 22-23lbs (it fluctuates) and is 30 inches tall.

he wears size 5 shoes.

18 months shirts, 18 month shorts, and 12-18 month pants.

jace started saying “yes mama” yesterday!

my camera has decided to be dumb (bought in 9/10) and i have to mail it in ๐Ÿ˜ฆ i’m already missing it desperately!

i had to use the video camera on the computer…

i did two videos.

the first one had sound.

this one! no sound!


i have no idea!!!

i’m so horribly bummed!

imagine how cute it would be with sound!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

i can read my lips – i’m hoping you can too!

jacer crawling

7 already

Posted: 01/26/2011 in jace legend, videos

i just realized today that jace is 7 months old.



while that sinks in….

here’s a couple videos of what he is up to.

he has deciding crawling from room to room works to his advantage.

i’m realizing this house isn’t as 7-month-old-proofed as i thought it was.

he is 19lbs and 27ish inches long.

9 month clothes still fit as long as they are two pieces.

he is getting some rolls and fat wrinkles that i simply love!

we’re all enjoying him… if you can’t tell. ๐Ÿ™‚

we’re due for a lizzie post.

stay tuned.

your all-time favorite song is:

just in the last few days,

you can become completely discontent to be a baby.

it’s time to be on the move.

so you think.

you would be in heaven if i just held you chasing sissy around all day!

no can do young man.

but the next best thing – sissy pushing you around in your walker!
