We have a walker! It is really unbelievable actually. Jackson took his first hesitant steps over Memorial Day and by his first birthday he was walking all over the place. I think a week at the cabin where there is more room to move around really helped. Honestly though, the week before he was taking 5-6 steps at a time and by the middle of last week he was walking everywhere he wanted to go. It's so stinkin' cute!! Those little legs just trying to keep up with what he wants them to do! I have a feeling that by Labor Day he'll be running. Yikes!!
We had a great time up at the cabin. We were able to spend the whole week up there and the relaxation and family time was just what the doctor ordered! There was another first birthday celebration with the Blair side of the family, a new, wonderful dock installed, a pontoon boat ride and first swim in Gunflint Lake. All very exciting! Jackson loved it all, with the possible exception of his life jacket. Not a fan but it was a requirement, of course.
I don't have the pictures loaded onto the computer yet but I will get that done soon and will share everything from the trip!
Oh, I almost forgot! Jackson had his one year doctor's appointment on Monday. NO FLUID IN HIS EARS!!! Yeah!!! That is the first time that has happened since birth. We were so excited! He weighs 23 lbs, 11 ozs (50-75%) and is 31 inches long (90%). He's growing like a bean! He had to get three shots and was a trooper through it all. Over the next month or so we'll be working on getting him off formula and onto whole milk. My little boy is growing up!
