9 Months Old

Jack just turned 9 months old on the 5th and had his check-up at the doctor yesterday and received A+ from the doctor. The doctor gave me some news that wasn't a surprise to either Brian or I, and that news is that Jack is taller than average for his age!

Jack is in the 90th percentile for his height, coming in at 30.25" and in the 50th percentile for his weight, coming in at 19 lbs 8 oz. He's growing like a weed and tries to show Brian and I that he is in charge. He is definitely our little ham and we love having him in our lives!

RIP Michael Jackson

Given that I'm a SAHM now, I am fortunate enough to witness important moments in history and today was one of those days with the memorial for Michael Jackson.

I remember being little and thinking he was the coolest thing ever, but as I got older and was able to form my own opinions, I thought he was an odd character and as the years went by, this opinion grew stronger.

It was not until today, during his memorial, when his daugther got up to the microphone and said how he was the best dad ever and how much she loved him. I then realized he was just like you and I. I then felt bad of forming opinions of a man that I never knew. One thing is for sure, he was a wonderful dad to his kids and at the end of the day, this is what is most important.

The L.A. Lakers' Club

Thanks to the official invitiation from Sophie, Jack is now a member of The L.A. Lakers' Club! He looks forward to his membership and is excited to cheer on such a great NBA team.
