come in niner, niner!

reese is nine months old! whoosh! time is flying by...

the great thing about turning 9 months old is that no shots are needed at this appointment! so here are his measurements:

Head: 43 3/4 cm which is the 20th%
Height: 32 1/2 inches which is above the 97th%
Weight: 23 lbs. 9 oz. which is the 90th%

so he has been growing pretty steadily. he is a good boy and has learned some new things like:
-how to clap his hands
-how to wave (although it's not usually when saying bye-bye)
-he loves to feed himself hot dogs, bananas and crackers
-he was screaming when i put him down for bed, but has overcome it for the most part and puts -himself to sleep again
-will pull himself up from a sitting position to a standing position (although he still isn't crawling)
-can get from sitting to being on his belly
-loves giving 5
-has two bottom teeth
-pushes away his bottle (or anything else) he doesn't want

we love our little man, he is a very good boy!

he is so big! too much chunk to crawl though (J/K)! he'll get there, don't worry. Kylee pushes stuff away too. How do they know they don't want it?--love--amber

Pushing stuff away that you don't want isn't that advanced. I've been doing it for years.

Haha I love it that he is such a big boy! I'm glad he stopped screaming at bedtime, Spencer went through a stage of doing that around 9 months also, I guess it's normal. He's so cute!
