Teething again and a weekend update

Jax has been very snotty and miserable for the last week.  No fevers, just a runny and itchy nose.  He's also been pushing his food away and only wanting bottles and purees.  No real food or not very much of it.  I feel so sorry for him.  Can't imagine what teething feels like.  He's a trooper though.  He woke up in the middle of the night every night last week.  Once we finally realized that it might be teeth again, we gave him Tylenol before bed and he slept the whole way through.   I figure we will be seeing some new teeth in the next couple of weeks.  Hopefully sooner so he will be out of pain.

He bumped his head pretty good twice this week in the same spot.  He's got a big bruise over his left eye.  He just got a little too independent in his exploring and he fell in between his jumper and a table.  Note to self, when baby gets a boo boo, give him a snack.  Nothing else worked.  Now we know.

He learned to walk behind his little push cart this weekend all by himself.  He pulled himself up behind it and it started to move forward, so he took some steps forward and walked across the room all by himself.  I was shocked but proud. :-)  He also figured out how to push himself on the firetruck toy.  He is getting too smart for his britches.

He was a real mama's boy this weekend, super cuddly and playful with me.  I loved it.  I think Tony is a little jealous of that.  He thinks Jax only likes him for playtime.  I don't think that's true.  I've seen them do their own version of cuddle time.  It's very cute.  Jax loves his daddy and his daddy loves Jax.
