Jack man is becoming quite the little foodie. I am fairly certain all of his favorite foods are orange/yellow foods. Check out him eating a nectarine for the first time. I was munching on it while holding him and he kept trying to get at it, so I thought, what the heck I will let him have a taste.

The nectarine was bigger than him!

The photo does not do his reaction justice. The video is much better. But he loved it and was fascinated by how delicious it is. He also loves cantaloupe and sweet potatoes. These three are his favorites. Each time he tried these three foods he did not turn away. He instantly loved them. Everything else, it took a few times of introducing it for him to enjoy it. So that is how we know he actually loves it. We are huge fruit lovers and he is very clearly our son. I don’t think I am going to ever have a problem getting him to eat his fruits. I am very excited about this.

Last night was a night my hubby has been counting down to. He is from Wisconsin and loves loves loves cheese. And that is still an understatement. Jackson tried cheese for the very first time. Melted in his sweet potato, green bean, and yellow squash meal. I had some shaved Parmesan and decided to throw it in his meal. It was nice and melted. mmmm I tasted it and I thought it was pretty yummy, like a veggie casserole! It may have inspired me for a new side dish. Jackson liked it. I will put some more in there tonight.

It has been beautiful running weather lately. I have been enjoying getting out in the morning for a refreshing run. I bought the cover for my jogger that keeps him warm and dry in poor weather. He doesn’t care to be all bundled up. It is going to be a long winter. I hope this mild weather sticks for a couple months and the cold stuff stays away until at least December.

Tomorrow we start swim lessons. As of this week our schedule becomes bananas. Monday we can attend Baby bistro, Tuesday is free, Wednesday swim lessons, Thursday Gymboree, and Friday Play Tots. Both play tots and baby bistro require no registration or payment so those are just depending on how our day goes. I start school again in 2 weeks tomorrow. I have a BA in History from Loyola University Chicago. I got pregnant shortly after Graduation. I always knew I wanted to stay home with our baby, so it was easy for me to just do that. I didn’t have a job yet to leave. I have decided to take some photography classes online. In case I ever want to take some photos part time here or there down the road. I have been encouraged by my mom and mother in law and I finally decided to just try. I have loved photography since high school. I have taken a couple courses in the past but all were film classes. The classes I found are all digital. I am excited. Even if it just improves my skills for taking photos of my family and friends! It is something I enjoy and I am finding time to do something for myself.

Our fall and winter are going to be busy! I am excited though.
