June flew by! We were super busy all month long with lots of time hanging out with cousins and fun time outside, dodging the many rainstorms of course. What happened to April showers? I guess they came in June this year. But anyway, we've been having fun and watching Jackson grow up right before our eyes. Over Memorial Day up at the cabin he took his first step and while I wouldn't say he's a walker yet, he does like to walk as much as possible -- up to about 15 steps at a time. It's so darn cute! He also loves to walk around the house while holding our fingers too which I think is really adorable.
Jackson has really become a great eater too! He LOVES fruit and will stuff as much as possible into his mouth at a time. We really have to be careful about how much we give him. He's like a little chipmunk. I think his favorites right now are mangos, peaches and cantalope (maybe he just likes the color orange). He can't get enough of them. So yummy this time of year too. We're trying to get him to eat more protein, starting him on chicken nuggets and such. The first try didn't go so well but he's getting better.
Here he is eating a popsicle. The last time he was at the hospital (when he had the croup a couple of months ago) one of the nurses gave him a popsicle. We really didn't think he'd eat it since it was so cold and he hadn't had anything like that before. Well, he devoured it! We were shocked! Of course, this time around he wasn't nearly as excited about the popsicle but I think he still liked it. I think he had more fun playing with it than anything.
