9 months

9 months - 6/25/14
He shortly cried after this picture because he wanted down to play with my camera strap. Oh and sorry for the unedited pictures, my computer crashed and I had to get a new one so I don't have my editing software loaded.

Growth
He is 20 lbs. 14.5 oz. and 28 1/4 inches long

Nicknames
booger nugget, little man, stinker, chunky monkey, buddy, baby boy

Sleep:
His sleep has been great lately. At night he usually goes to bed around 7:30 to 8 and then wakes up anywhere from 7 to 8 but I don't get him out of bed until around 8. He has about two naps a day usually at 9:30 and 2:30 unless he doesn't have good naps and then he will take another catnap. I don't have to rock him to sleep, he just takes a pacifier then we lay him down.

Eating
He is still eating so well. Towards the end of this month he started to not really want his oatmeal so we decreased that and gave him more food. He also is working on puffs and teething biscuits. We are also working on his pincher grasp and he has put he puffs in his mouth a few times. He is having breakfast, lunch, and dinner along with his 5 bottles and some snacks.


Clothing/Diapers:
He is still in size 3 diapers but I think we will have to move up to 4s soon, he has a little too many blowouts recently. He is  still in some 9 month clothes but they are getting a little small. He is in some 6 to 12 month clothing that fit him better. His pajamas are 12 month. He is a big boy and getting much longer, he is longer than he is chubby now. But still has those big cheeks!

Development
He began crawling this month! He started with army crawling then one day he started following me around the corner! He is crawling everywhere! Our big boy also pulls up all the time on anything he can find. He also has learned to turn the light on and off and put things inside of buckets and such.

Mommy
I love being a stay at home mom, we have so much fun together! We usually have a pretty busy day and have been enjoying swimming quite a few times. We are going to be doing swimming lessons soon which is nerve-racking but exciting.

Daddy
Our boy loves when daddy comes home, he gets this huge smile on his face and squeals with excitement! Paul loves seeing him everyday when he gets off work. They have such a special connection.
