Our 9 Month Old!!

Well, I'm a little late in posting about Evan turning 9 months... But better late than never, right? Our little man turned 9 months on Sunday. He's growing up so fast!! It seems like this past month has been full of new accomplishments. He's still not crawling, but we're thinking maybe he's close. He loves to roll around (everywhere) and has now learned how to spin in circles and move in reverse while on his tummy. He still has yet to lift up his belly and bottom, but we're not surprised since he has a little more to lift up than most babies (he's a chunker!). Here are a few facts about our little guy right now:

-He weighed in at 22 pounds, 9 ounces and 30 inches at his doctors appointment a couple of weeks ago (about the 90th percentile I think). His doctor says he's doing great- we're so thankful to have such a healthy little guy.
-He is still nursing 3 times a day and eating all kinds of baby foods (he's recently started eating some stage 3 baby food and yogurt). We'll probably be starting him on some table food in the next couple of months. He also loves to eat the little cereal puffs and has now mastered feeding them to himself. He also is getting lots better at eating from a sippy cup all by himself. It's been fun to watch him learn to do these things on his own.
-He loves bath time and screams bloody murder when you take him out....
-He loves to jump in his jumper and can get it going pretty high!
-He is loving his stroller and taking walks outside everyday now that the weather is nice. The swings at the park have also been a big hit!
-He is now taking 2 good naps everyday and sleeping about 11 hours at night. We've even gotten to the point where he doesn't even cry at all when we put him down.
-He LOVES to read (which makes me soo happy since I am a book-lover). His favorite book is Brown Bear, Brown Bear. It's so hilarious to watch him when you're reading to him. He gets all excited and throws his arms all around and laughs out loud.
-He's gotten good at giving kisses and is starting to learn how to clap.

I guess that's all I can think of right now... I've included the monthly crib pictures below. Thanks for checking in on our family....

  1. He is so stinkin cute!! Both my boys didn't crawl until they were 9 1/2 months old. So he isn't behind.... And neither of mine walked until 14 months! Thanks for the 9-month post :)
