Somewhere in our busy day to day in and out up and down lives 9 MONTHS HAVE GONE BY.
You have been a busy guy. You are now sporting two shiny little bottom teeth. Good luck to us getting a picture of them, though. I've been trying for the whole month and I usually end up with this:
You have had a busy month. Lots of travelling and visits and, occasionally, hanging out on the couch with your sister.
You are also trying out some travelling of your own. You never did master the art of rolling over, but you are a pro at scooting yourself all around the floor in search of something to put in your mouth. In just the past few days you have figured out the "pre-crawl stance" and can get up on your hands and knees and rock there a few times before you flop back down on your stomach. Then you cry because you are stuck there (see: not rolling over yet). Otherwise, you are still so pleasant to be around. We don't even seem to mind the spitting up or still waking at 3 am as much as we used to. Don't get us wrong...we still MIND, but just not as much.
I took you for your 9 month check up today. In the grand tradition of growing our children long and lean you are 17 pounds 13 ounces and 29 inches long. That is 10th percentile in weight and 75th percentile in length. Of course, these visits always make me want to compare you to Baby Girl. How much you remind us of her but also how different you are. But that is a post for another day.
For now, we are enjoying spending time with you. Watching you try new things every day. You are eating some table food now and really love your "puff snacks" and are a pro at picking each tiny one up and putting it in your mouth. You recently learned another new trick, and we got a little video of it:
Happy 9 Month Birthday Baby Boy!
