9 month old Jake

Hey look at me...for once I am a day early in the big turn of the month blog. :) Tomorrow Jake is going to be 9 months old...I just cannot believe it. I have the most wonderful, loving, silly cuddly, smart, affectionate, goofy,etc,etc,etc...son. I love this little boy so much and cannot believe how blessed we are that God chose us to raise such a wonderful child of his. At this almost 9 month mark Jake can now clap (although not on command), rock back and forth on his hands and knees and pretty much get where he wants to go by rolling, turning on his belly and going backwards. And he is already starting to get into things...we are now in trouble. :) But here are some new pictures of our little Jakey Bear.
Wearing Daddy's hat as we got out the Christmas stuff.
Ahhh, the adorable men in my life...I love them both so much.
My silly boy has a little play area and he somehow got himself almost completely underneath the coffee table...he does not seem too worried though. :)
I had to get some sort of before and after shot of this. This is Jake's little play area that we set up for him. All nice and together and there for him to tear apart...
And here is is a picture after hurricane Jake. :) hehe, he really does have a fun time..and that is what it is there for.
Jake's first Christmas tree...he really does not understand the whole tree in the house thing. But here he is with Daddy checking out the decorated tree for the first time.
Happy Boys
"wow...where can I put this one?"
Jake found his books all on his own on this particular night...and had no problem getting them out to find one he wanted. A new "Bob the Builder" book.

And for your viewing pleasure here is a little video of Jake "rocking." Its not a great one but sometimes its hard to catch him doing things and get a good video. Of course since I took this he does it a lot more. :)
I hope everyone is having a great week and looking forward to Christmas next week!!! :D

Jake's 1st Christmas Portraits

Well I have some really cute pictures of Jake to share from the past week but I just had to share these first...I will put the other ones on in a couple of days. But these are Jake's Christmas pictures that we took before Thanksgiving and I have to say that they turned out adorable. He was in such a smiley mood and so we were quite thrilled. Hope you enjoy them. :)

Great picture and if you look under his tongue you can see his first and so far only tooth.
ooooohhhhh...this picture makes us laugh every time we see it. I think Ryan showed him a bear to get him to smile and it turned out he was very excited to see it. hehe
Happy Santa Baby
Ahhhhhh...cute little man

Jake's First Thanksgiving

Well last week was Jake's first Thanksgiving and he seemed to be very amused by it all, we tried some real grown up foods on him to interesting results and introduced him to crazy black Friday shopping. He really seemed to like that, but I think it had more to do with spending lots of time in a shopping cart...he loves to do that and spends his time looking all around like a big boy. :) Below are some of the pictures of his first Thanksgiving meal and of course just more cuteness. :)

OK Dad, what is that?
"Hmmmm...mashed potatoes. Kinda boring...I think I will like them more with some butter and lots of gravy when I am older."
"Sweet potatoes....
"....I thought people said these would have brown sugar and all sorts of goodies in them...I got the plain ones."
".....ahhhhhh full Thanksgiving tummy...all full of baby food Apple Turkey Cranberry, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and of course the best desert ever...banana puffs!!!"
"Welcome to the gun show"
"Hey everybody...I hope you have a good week!"
