9 Month Update

Jacob is 9 months old already! 

Since we last posted, a lot has been going on in the Lambert household.  We celebrated Christmas with Matt's family and more of Annie's family.  Jacob came away with quite a haul of toys from his first Christmas! We went to Zoolights at the Point Defiance Zoo.  It was a very cold night, but Jacob enjoyed seeing all the pretty lights and animals.  Annie opened a new cancer clinic on January 10th and Matt has started teaching Sunday School to 1st and 2nd graders at our church. 

Jacob is now wearing his helmet all day, every day.  He gets to have it off for an hour a day, which usually happens when we are changing his clothes or giving him a bath.  He doesn't seem to mind it too much.  We can definitely see the improvements in the shape of his head already.  We are hopeful he will be done with it by his birthday in April, but only time will tell. 
Jacob is still going to physical therapy once a week and making great progress.  He can sit up on his own for a long time now.  His fine motor skills are improving too as he's learning to pick things up off his high-chair tray to put them in his mouth.  Jacob is also eating a variety of foods including bananas, kiwi, pancakes and his favorite little "puffies" (like cheerios), on top of the standard baby food menu.  He has two bottom teeth and two on the top coming in.  We would post more pictures, but our other computer is in the shop. 

Our other big news is that we sold our house!  And we have found a new house that we just love!  So in the midst of everything else that keeps our daily lives busy (work, appointments, volunteering, church), we are packing and preparing to move.  Our closing date is Feb. 22nd and we plan to move over President's Day weekend.  If you are available to help, we would be most grateful!  

Next months update will have more pictures of our new place and Jacob's toothy smile.  
Our New House!
