Nine Months

Colton - You are NINE months old!!!!!

What have you been up to this month???
You weigh around 17 lbs, size 3 diapers and size 3.5 shoe (Your nine month check isn't for another two weeks so we will update your stats then)

You wear 9 month and mostly 12 month clothes.

Just this week you got your first haircut. Basically it was just a little trim around the sides and the top. You did great and didn't cry at all. You look so handsome and sweet.
You are a GREAT eater! We recently started in on table food and you love everything! I am so excited! You have eaten peas, peaches, pears, tomatoes, carrots, bananas, cheerios and puffs.

You eat baby food oatmeal with fruit for breakfast, a veggie or fruit at lunch and a veggie for dinner. You take four 6-8oz bottles a day.

You usually take two good naps a day. Because we are on the go a lot you get a short nap on the go in the morning and a long good nap in the afternoon. You are ready to go to bed by 6:30. You sleep til 7:30-8am! You sleep through the night and do great! We are so thankful!
You have two teeth - on the bottom

You are so content and just love to watch everything going on around you. Today we were at a friends house for a play date and you loved just sitting and watching all the kids play. You have such a good temperament and are so easy going. I hope you are always that way.

You are not anywhere near crawling. When I put you on your belly you just flip over to your back quickly. You will crawl when you are good and ready. You love to stand up just not move yet.
You babble a lot and just this week started saying "dadadadada"!

Ryan just adores you and loves to make you laugh. He loves to bring me your wubby or through away a dirty diaper. He is such a great helper and big brother. Whenever you start fussy he will smile at you and try to make you laugh.

You do great in the nursery at church and the gym. The sweet ladies at church know just what to do to get you to nap. I am SO thankful for sweet childcare workers who enjoy both my boys. It's so wonderful to know I can leave you and you are happy.
Getting your pictures this month was a little more difficult. You found the paper on the back of the chair and wanted to play with it. You are growing so much every day. You have changed so much. I think you and Ryan are started to look more alike.

I can't believe we will be celebrating your first birthday in just a few months. You are so sweet and we love you SO much!!!!
