I was having a work related conversation with a coworker the other day and of course our talks quickly detoured to our kids. I had commented that Jayson's current age is my favorite, and in retrospect I think I've said this with every age he's hit so far. She had a great way to describe this. She said that with each stage whether it be crawling, walking, talking, etc., it's like you have a crush on your kid. Everything they do is so precious and you can't help but stare at them in wonderment. It's so true! Jayson could fart and I'd brag about it. As a matter of fact I have because when he does "let wind" (to quote Justin's Grandma Kelly) I'll say to him "are you making stinky man farts?" and he'll laugh. He thinks it's hilarious. Such a typical man to think getting caught farting is hilarious. It's safe to say I have a crush on my kid. I have drank the kool-aid and am wearing a permanent pair of rose colored glasses. How could I not?? Just look at this kid!

Nine has always been my lucky number. It was my varsity soccer jersey number, Justin and I started dating on the ninth of February in 1999, my first dorm room was 309, and Justin and I got married in 2009. It also just so happens that Jayson was born on the ninth of May, which means that this past Sunday (the ninth of February) he became 9 months old. Yeah... nine whole months. Which means I have three months until his first birthday. I don't know whether to be happy about that fact or if I should start bawling. What I do know is that month nine for Jayson has brought a lot of changes and this by far has become my favorite age of his. He's just so much fun right now!

As a new mom I have had access to (and tried) many new products out on the market today. However, I will say that for a majority of the common issues (i.e. diaper rash, etc) the old school items have proved themselves to be tried and true. The following items which you probably already have in your pantry have been little miracle workers for Jayson:
