9 months and change

9 months ago and a couple of weeks, our son joined our family at 1 AM. It's so hard to believe he's been with us outside my body as long as he was inside! Milestones are piling up and I am not doing him his right stuff by keeping here goes a little late!

The week before he turned 9 months old he crawled across the room on all fours. Now, he'd been scooting, rolling, and getting where he wanted to go, but this was the real thing. 3 weeks earlier than his sister but just as fast!

The week of his 9 month old birthday he figured out how to pull himself up on EVERYTHING. His favorite toy is the kitchen, leap frog table, and his sister's Princess dress up trunk. Ideal height for standing and banging like a drum.

He also has discovered that if you let go of something you stand...for over 5 seconds at a time! He has also "cruised" a bit on the kitchen to get something he pushed away. Not major steps yet, but it's coming fast.

He weighed in at 20.5 pounds and 28 inches at his doctor's appointment and she confirmed swollen upper gums which indicates more teeth are a coming. The snotty, nasal congestion was a sure sign too.

He continues to be the happiest baby on the block. Giggling, smiling, flirting. A pure delight who sleeps for over 10 hours at night. Life is grand in our house with our son. We are mostly excited because we are just as amazed as he does his "firsts" as we were with Hadarya.

Sweet baby boy. Scrumptious!

His "original" faces are something to behold. He has an expression for everything he is trying to say. A most delightful and delicious child.
