This past Sunday was my very first Mother's Day!! And it was great! My gift from Jack and John Berry was a swing for the back porch, which John Berry put up for me on Saturday. We will be spending a lot of slow afternoons on the back porch, I hope. But the very best part of Mother's Day happened Sunday night. For the first time ever Jack slept all the way through the night. It was amazing. Jack is such a fun little boy, and we are loving every moment with him. People always say time flies so fast, and it does... but instead of mourning the time passing, I am embracing it and enjoying every single second. Jack is pulling up to his knees very easily, and is very close to pulling up to standing. Instead of crawling on hands and knees, Jack has a combination of "commando crawling," rolling, and spinning in circles to help him get where he needs to go. I think we might completely bypass crawling and go straight to walking. Jack inhales every item of food we put in front of him. And he is alllll boy. He can completely face-plant on a hardwood floor, and roll right over to try to get back up again. John Berry are fairly certain that Jack will be the fearless kid who climbs trees and monkey bars without a second thought. And that's a little scary. Jack has officially starting saying, "Da da." But it seems that everything is "Da da," so we don't know if he is calling John Berry "Daddy," or if he is just talking. I know one thing.. I'm ready to hear "Mama." We have been very fortunate that Jack is such a happy baby. Not much upsets him, and I can't even imagine how he will be now that he is consistently getting a full night's sleep. We'll see!!! These past 9 1/2 months have been absolutely wonderful, and I just can't wait to see what else is in store with our little man.
