Jackson is 33 Weeks Old!

Jackson is now 33 Weeks Old. 

Not much has changed since last week, other than now when he pulls up on something, like the couch, he will walk along side of it and even walk from one thing to another while holding on. There is a end table next to our couch and he will walk from the couch to the end table, while holding on!! I seriously wouldn't be surprised if he walked sooner rather than later.

He's saying Mama, Dada, Baba and Bla Bla a lot now. He's also moving his hand and saying ba ba (bye bye). He will only do this when your changing him for some odd reason, but its a start. ☺

We are going to start working with him to get him to go to sleep on his own. As of right now, we usually have to feed him a bottle or take him for a car ride to get him to go to sleep. Which is not ideal! So I've been doing some research on how to brake him from needing the bottle to go to sleep. I especially want to get him sleeping through the night. As of right now he's still waking up 1-3 times a night for a bottle and sometimes its not even time for a bottle. Its almost impossible to get him to go back to sleep without the bottle in the middle of the night, so I'm in desperate need of figuring out how to brake him from the bottle at night. If you seasoned mom's have any advice, it would be MUCH appreciated! A night of uninterrupted sleep would be like heaven to me right now.

Embrace The Camera

Linking up with Emily at The Anderson Crew

Embrace the Camera is where you'll take a picture of YOU with your kids, spouse, friends, etc. The point of embrace the camera is to get in front of the camera and to document a bit of yourself.

I tested out the timer on my new camera for these pictures of Jackson and I. I took them Monday evening, after I had just gotten home from getting my hair cut and colored. I had asked my stylist what size curling iron I needed in order to get some loose curls, and since I never curl my hair, she asked if I'd like her to show me how. Of course I said yes and I absolutely love how it looked.
