Nine Months and Counting

Elijah 9 Months

Where have the past nine months gone? My baby is growing up so quickly – it still amazes me how much they change and how fast it happens.

We had our nine-month check-up yesterday and got a gold star for health and developmental growth. His doctor said she wants to clone E because he’s a model patient. It just reminded me how blessed I am that both my boys are happy and healthy. It’s not something I ever want to take for granted and I’m so thankful that I get to be their mommy.

nine months + 7 days // 18 pounds // 27.8 inches

Favorite activities: Bouncing in my Jumperoo and stealing my big brother’s toys. Eating.
Favorite foods: I haven’t met a veggie I didn’t like. I’m not crazy about peaches. I devour cheerios.
Favorite toys: Anything I can chew on…and my talking sit-and-play puppy.
Favorite games: Clapping at random, playing pat-a-cake and climbing on daddy like a jungle gym.
Teeth: One on the bottom, another coming in on the top.
Walking: Not yet, but I love to stand up and walk around the coffee table or any other piece of furniture or people I can pull up on. I get around faster by crawling.
Speaking: I babble and say dadada, and I’m learning baby sign language. “More” is my favorite word.
Entertainment: I crack up at practically anything my big brother does, he’s hilarious. Thomas the Train is also delightful.
