Jordan is 9 Months Old

Where is the time going? He is starting to look like a toddler. I'm not ready. :(

I just realized that I didn't post Jordan's 8 or 9 month photos, so you get both in one post. :)

In this post, I want to do a little FIL brag. So, my FIL has been watching Jordan since I returned to work after maternity leave (with the exception of the summer). We are blessed to have him wanting and willing to spend a lot of his free time with Jordan. I know a lot of people would criticize us for not having him in daycare, because he won't have any social skills, but we will figure that all out along the way. We will start having play dates and what not...especially a lot in the summer. Anyways...we pay my FIL $20 a day to watch Jordan, which is cheaper than daycare. Well, yesterday he presented my husband with an account number where he has been putting all the money we have paid him (about $1,500). He said that at the end of the school year he is going to match the amount in there. How awesome is that? Mike's mom also has a college fund set up where she has money from each check go into it. It is nice to know that little man will be able to go to college and not have to be $45,000 in debt like his momma. :/

It looks like there was a huge change in his little face from 8 to 9 months, like he looks so much older in that short of time! I wouldn't have put mine in daycare until he was one but since my parents ended up not being able to keep him I had no other choice but daycare. I think it's great you have family keeping him :) Also that is fantastic on the college fun I need to start one as well.

He definitely looks different in the two pictures- but still adorable!

That's awesome that your FIL has socked away the money for you. And don't feel bad about having your FIL watch Jordan- that's awesome and I think that a lot of people would go that route if it were an option for them.
