Jackson the Giant

Jackson is 15 months old now, I can't believe how fast he is growing up. We went to the doctor yesterday and he is 34 1/4 inches (off the charts for height) and 24lbs (50%). The doctor said most 2 yr olds average 35 inches so for him to already be 34 1/4 he is a GIANT. Bragging time, here are some other things about Jackson at this age:

-he loves swimming, especially going down the slide with dad
-he has 11 teeth (3 molars) and another 4 teeth are about to break through
-he can say: mama, dada, bird, ball, doggie, and moon (actually it is more like boon but I know he is talking about the moon because he points to it when he says it).
-his favorite toy is the dog (Twix)
-he loves reading books especially Goodnight Moon and The Very Hungry Caterpillar
-he eats regular food including hole grapes, blueberries, and pizza
-he still sleeps throughout the night (9pm to 10 am)
-he can point to his toes, knees, tummy, and ear
-he can fold his arms for praying or listening
-he follows commands like drying spills, picking up toys with mom, finding his cups, or throwing things in the garbage
-he is still working on using a spoon and fork. . .sometimes he can do it sometimes he doesn't have the patience
-he likes to tackle the stuffed purple octopus
-he loves dancing and listening to the IPOD
He is a great baby and I love him so much, especially when he gives me kisses at night.
