9 months!


Maddux is 9 months today!
stats:
*weight: 18 lbs, 5 oz - 15%
*height: 29.75 inches - 90%
*head: 18 inches - 60%

eating:
*he stopped nursing (my fault since my milk dried up)
* is eating SO much better this month than last month. he so enjoys eating whatever we are eating, but has learned to love his baby food too.
*has started eating baby foods with meat in them. so now he has more variety than just his orange favorites. he even started to eat different fruits and veggies...including some green ones! yay!
*we finally got him to hold his own bottle this weekend (i think he is just a lil lazy and likes us to hold it for him)

sleeping:
*sleeping through the night, which is mommy's dream come true! some nights he sleeps longer than others, but right now he goes down between 7:30 and 8:30, wakes up at 6:30 for a bottle, then will sleep for another two hours or so. LOVE IT!

activities:
*crawling, crawling, crawling
*climbing. the kid loves to climb up anything he can...furniture, us, stairs, anything. he is getting super speedy up the stairs and it scares me!
*he can stand now with very little help. drew has even managed to get him to stand all on his own for a few seconds at a time, but he's super wobbly!
*he walks around while holding on to the couch or his big toys, but i think he is still far from actually walking on his own.
*maddux has discovered how to open cupboards and drawers and pull the contents out and spread it all over the floor. nice
*clapping
*waving bye-bye


teeth:
*he has 5 teeth now- two on top, three on bottom- and he loves to bite things to shreds (ie...my grocery list)

favorites:
*maddux loves baby einstein's "baby's first moves". we must watch it 5 times a day! he sits and stares and then cracks up at certain parts (kangaroo puppet, caterpillar puppet, dinosaurs, and the monkey puppets). we have 15 baby einstein movies to choose from, but this is the one we watch over and over again. he loves it!
*he loves baby mum mums. i think he could eat his body weight in mum mums (highly reccommended to all moms...see pic below!)
*just this friday, lauren and paisley let maddux borrow a couple of awesome toys. maddux is loving one of them and plays with it nonstop while he is awake. thanks for sharing paisley!
*daddy!! maddux likes me and all, but my goodness...he gets excited when he sees daddy!
*and of course --the stairs

How did he get to be so grown up? We love Maddux and we love when he wears his cute belt to church.

Can you believe our boys are 9 months already?!? Maddux is just too adorable! I love his grin while he's in the laundry basket. Such a cutie! Christian hasn't figured out the clapping thing yet, and he's starting to mimic waving. It's just interesting to me how kids pick up on different things!

He has gotten so grown up looking so fast, what a handsome baby boy! I can't believe he is already climbing and almost walking. Audra is not even crawling on her hands and knees yet!
