9 months!

Kai is 9 months! He has hit the time period where he has been out of me longer than he was in me! :) It's crazy how fast it goes. He's definitely going from baby to toddler.

I'll start with his measurements.
Head: 44.5cm (25%)
Length: 2' 4" (45%)
Weight: 19 lbs (25%)
^This reminds me of a face Talitha would try and pull. :)
^Sarah- the first time she had stood up in her crib. She looks terrified!
^Finding Kai for his first time standing in his crib. Such a happy camper. Kai stood up the day after his 9th month. Sarah was 3 days after she turned 9 months. I like the difference in the look on their faces.
At the doctor we got a couple shots. Kai is such a social baby. He loves exploring new people's faces. Both of my babies have always loved any attention they can get.
What's new?:
-Sitting completely steady, going from sitting to crawl stance, rocking on hands and knees, some crawling, mostly army crawling, standing for 10 minutes at a time while holding onto things, pulling himself up (thus the crib has been lowered and bumpers are off)
-Picking up objects, feeding himself small pieces of food.
-Using consonant sounds, ba-ba and da-da, understands his name and "no". ;)
-Eating everything we eat except milk, berries, peanut butter and honey. I haven't found a food he won't eat yet. And he eats A LOT! Nursing 3 times a day. 6:30am, 1pm and 6:30pm. Drinks water from a bottle- learning to hold himself and use sippy cup.
-For sleep- swaddled (he'll immediately break loose and get comfy), binki, and monkey softy blanket. Naps around 9:30am for an hour, 1pm for about 2 hours and in bed by 6:30pm until 6:30am.
-Kai has 3 teeth. Bottom, middle two and one top tooth next to front teeth. :)

I love the photo of Sarah standing in the crib! Makes me laugh! I can't believe Kai is that old. Although that would make sense since Graham will be 6 months in 3 days. I love that Kai eats everything. I'll cross my fingers he doesn't develop any pickiness!

Oh my goodness your boy is getting so big! He is such a cute little doll. Thanks for the comment on my blog. I am moving this friday to San Angelo, TX. We will be there for the next 3 years. How is CA? I would love to live out that way. Maybe someday.
