My Little Man is 9 Months Old!

Well, he will be on Thursday (the 12th) It goes by so quickly.

Here's a list of things he does now

He pivots, mostly to the left. In fact, he'll turn a full circle most times to avoid going to the right, even when whatever he wants is closer to his right.

He rolls, front to back, back to front, all over the place.

He's starting to try out getting on his knees and elbows. Arms are still a bit week for knees and hands.

He's grabbing and mouthing EVERYTHING. He shakes rattles, tears up his playroom. Jumps up and down on laps, and in his jumperoo.

He gives big ol' wet kisses, when begged.

He eats breakfast, lunch and dinner. He's still taking a bottle, and has no interest in holding it himself, so we haven't even bothered with trying a straw cup yet.

He gives huge smiles, and every once in a while he chuckles, but I'm still waiting for the big belly shaking laughs. - Part of this laugh thing is that he seems to think that a big hardy laugh is crying, and so when we laugh, he gets confused, like he's made us cry. I know he'll get it eventually.

He says da da da, bla bla bla, dla dla dla, and every now and again - ma ma ma, but honestly, I'm pretty sure it's just practice noises at this point.

He blows raspberries, and he really enjoys them with a mouth full of baby food. Usually that's when I've decided he's had enough.

Naps are still hit and miss, mostly miss. Bed time is any where from 7pm to 8pm and he sleeps till 5:30 or 6am. Here's the latest pics of him..
