Our little man is 9months old today. It's hard to believe the he was inside me for 9 months and now has been with us for 9 months. It's amazing how much he as grown, learned and developed in just 9 short months.
Jacob is now officially crawling. He had been doing a fish flop/froggie scoot for about 2 months but as of last friday he is actually crawling. Along with crawling, he is also pulling himself up on EVERYTHING. He is starting to "cruise" around his toys and the couch and starting to walk holding on to our hands.
He has been trying hard to give up his afternoon nap and I have been trying hard to keep it. Or it may just be that he learned to pull himself up in the crib and that is so much more fun than sleeping. This is what he as been doing while he is supposed to be napping (sorry some are kind of burry, he was jumping around, so excited I was there):
Jacob also loves bath time. He always crawls from his room to the tub to stand up and look in at his toys. He is taking big boy baths and loves to lay down in the water and splash, splash, splash away.
He can also sit in a restaurant high chair (although does better with a little padding behind him) and can sit in a shopping cart (making it so much easier to go grocery shopping and Costco).
Lets see, other 9 month mentionables. He now as 4 teeth (2 top, 2 bottom) as you can see in some of the pics. He looks so much different with teeth. He is eating like a champ, with a waiting open mouth for almost every bite. His favorite foods are bananas, pears, oatmeal, carrots, yams but he will eat pretty much anything. He is wearing mostly 9 months onesies, 6 month pants and shirts. His favorite toys are the table top toys he can pull up on, anything that spins, turning the pages of books, the jumperoo and shoes.
He has his 9mo doctor check-up next week, so will get weight and height stats then.
Happy 9 month birthday little man. You bring us such joy and laughter. I can't imagine life without you. We love you!
