Journal entry - October 22
Jesse is 9 months old now. I can hardly believe it! He is such a grown up little boy now, and so different from the baby he used to be.
I have finally finished recording Jesse's birth story. Luke and I were talking (because I had him read it), and it feels like that was a lifetime ago. It's crazy how much has happened since then, how much we have each changed. And at the same time, some of those memories are still so fresh. I think we both still have a lot of resentment toward the way things happened with getting Jesse here.
Jesse has got these funny little tendencies. He likes to look up at lights whenever we walk under them. He loves watching the fan in his room, especially when I've just turned it off and it's slowing down. Part of his nighttime ritual with Luke is to look at everything in the closet after we read Little Dinosaur. He likes to reach out for the hangers especially.
He has also started carrying things around in his mouth. He loves to chew on my nursing pads, and carries them like a little dog. He also carries around his puppy slipper and any socks he gets a hold of. I laugh, because it's so backward from the normal dog carrying socks and slippers around like chew toys.
He is so talkative and makes such cute and funny noises. He does his little "angry" breathing, but now he keeps his teeth clenched, and it's more of a spitty sound. He does a lot of spitty talking these days. He also clicks his tongue a lot, which is cute. If he sees me or Luke do it, he'll do it too..
He also likes to talk with his mouth full of food. He makes these bub bub sounds, and thinks it's hilarious when food comes out of his mouth. He also cracks up whenever anyone burps.
