Anyways, we took Jacob swimming for the first time on our trip to Logan too...he wasn't sure at first, but after a few minutes he was happy splashing around!
It was nice to get away and be somewhere else...even if it wasn't very far away. I like Logan, I love that it's still a small town but you have everything you need right there, and nothing is too far of a drive.
I was also able to go to the temple on my birthday! I told Randy we should start doing that from now on, go to the temple on our birthdays...it was so nice, and I had never gone to the Logan temple so it was a first for me.
If anybody who reads this can tell me...what is the secret to having your baby sleep through the night when they're not in their regular crib?? Jacob, and all of us actually had a rough couple of nights because he didn't want to sleep in his pack n' play. The second night was better than the first but the longest he slept in a row was 3 hours...I guess that's still better than when he was younger and would be up every 1/2 to 1 hour...so if you have any insights leave us your comments...we would love to know!

This month started out great...we all got together at Kevin's for dinner the first Sunday of the month. It was good to see everyone and to see how the boys interact with each other...Jacob is always trying to take something from them, or pull their hair etc, etc...
He is almost 9 months! I can't believe it! He is so funny lately. He has developed a love for music and dancing...he dances (rocks back and forth while sitting or standing) every time Randy whistles. It all started with his cloth book (the one in the picture), he kept pushing the button and would start to dance every time the music would come on. He's hilarious! No matter what he's doing, as soon as he hears dad whistling he will dance! He also loves to be standing up. Yesterday he stood in the pack and play for about 15 minutes straight. He is getting more and more independent too. I'm afraid we're going to have to start baby-proofing our home asap.
I forgot to mention he started giving 'kisses'. It's so adorable! We just had to show everyone when we all got together at Kevin's.
For a while Jacob stopped saying "da,da" I was a little concerned but now he's back to saying it again. He also makes up his own words and is very verbal when he's happy...when he's not happy he just yells at me! Last week he was really into making 'clicking sounds' with his mouth and tongue, he was having such a blast!
He still loves to just roll around no matter where he is! He was a little anxious last night so Randy just put him down on the floor in the office and he was happy to just roll around! He has no fear! If he is seeing something he wants, he will throw himself at it...we discovered that because he really likes Nala's red, plastic ball. He tried to launch himself off my lap one night, trying to get to the Ball. I can just see the fun times we have ahead of us!
