Jackson's 47 Week Pictures!

I'm finally caught up on getting his weekly photo posted. I can't believe he'll already be 48 weeks/11 months old this Thursday! Only 1 more month til he's one. :-(

Jackson is getting so big. We have already had to move up the straps on his big boy car-seat and he can reach things you would never think he could reach. Its so amazing how fast he is growing.

He's wearing mostly size 18-24 month clothes and he's kind of in an in between size for shoes. He's a little too big for 4's but a little too small for most 5's still. Thankfully my mom found a pair of white Adidas tennis shoes (at a Once Upon a Child store for only $8) in a size 5 that fit him great and were in perfect condition.☺

I noticed yesterday that he's getting another tooth. I can see the white coming through already. He has all 4 bottom/middle teeth and he has 3 of the 4 top/middle teeth. The tooth that is coming through now is the 4th /top tooth (the tooth next to his left/middle top tooth).

He started (sort of) doing Patty Cake this week. We will sing the entire song and he'll just look at us and not do any of the motions, but as soon as the song is over he will clap and say yay! Ha, its pretty cute!

Fall is in the Air!

On my way to work this morning the temperature was 57 degrees. Its really starting to feel like Fall here in the STL. I really love Summer. Its probably my favorite season and I'm always sad to see it go, but I'm looking forward to Fall this year with Jackson. 

I'm looking forward to taking him to the Pumpkin Farm,

and to Eckerts for Apple Picking.

I can't wait for Trick or Treating,

Carving Pumpkins,

 and My Mother-in-Law's Halloween Party. (Which she didn't have last year because we had Jackson so close to Halloween.)

Our Church Bonfire,

and one of my very favorite things about Fall is Pumpkin Pie Concretes from Doozles!

I'm also looking forward to Thanksgiving with family.

And yummy pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks!

What are you looking forward to this Fall??
