Jackson is 17 Weeks Old!

Jackson turned 17 weeks old this past Thursday and he turns 4 months old tomorrow! I can't believe its already been 4 months! Wow!

We tried rice cereal with a spoon again tonight. It went a little bit better than last time. He still spits it out, but I think he got a little bit down this time. He also started liking to put a blanket over his face when he's trying to go to sleep. He had been burying his face in my arm, but that is hard because he always spits his binky out in the process. So we tried a blanket and that works a lot better. He just really doesn't like any light when he's trying to sleep. I can't say that I blame him. I don't really like it either.

He loves being on a blanket on the floor or on his playmat. He turns his legs and torso all the way over til his belly is almost flat on the floor, all that doesn't go over are his shoulders and head. He's so close to rolling over from his back to his belly. 

He also gets so excited sometimes while watching tv (he loves watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse or the Baby First Channel on Direct TV) or while talking to us. He will kick his legs and move his arms like crazy and just talk and scream. Its soooo cute!! He's very talkative and loves to talk to his Daddy. Jake can really get him laughing and talking. And he's VERY ticklish! Sometimes he'll laugh out loud just when we're taking his shirt off and not even touching him. Its hilarious how ticklish he is.

I think he is starting the teething stage and has been for the last couple weeks or so. His hands are constantly in his mouth and he puts everything he gets his hands on straight into his mouth. He can even get a little crabby with it at times. I feel so bad for him. So we've been giving him a little bit of Tylenol when he gets extra crabby.

He's got a pretty good routine down, which I love! He's usually asleep by 8:30 or 9 and sleeps til around 5:15 (sometimes a little earlier, sometimes a little later). He always goes right back to sleep after he eats and sleeps til around 7, (sometimes a little later). He then takes a little nap in the morning and then a longer nap at around noon and then usually another little nap later in the afternoon. Then he'll sometimes take a little 20 minute or so nap in the evening. He really likes his sleep, which is great because I really like my sleep too. ☺ Friday I was home sick with a cold and he just cuddled with me all day. He's so sweet.

We are going to get his three four month pictures taken tomorrow. (I'm a little behind) I can't wait to see how cute they turn out. 

Here's his 17 week pictures! Enjoy ☺
