Ben at Nine Months

Ben on February 11 you turned nine months old! Three quarters of your first year down...and not very long to go. I think time must speed up the more children you have, because it has gone so very very fast. I was just thinking that this time last year we were starting to get a few things done to bring you home and then poof...not very much longer and you were here! We are so very thankful, and we are having so much fun watching you grow!

This picture is so "you" these days. We've decided you may not be as quiet and gentle as we originally may just be the one constantly making us laugh and keeping us on our toes!

At your nine month appointment this month you weighed 20 lbs 9 oz, and you were 29 inches tall.
Your top two teeth just popped through, which means you have 5 now!
You are wearing size 3 and 4 diapers, and you can wear anywhere from 9 month to 18 month clothes.

You are eating more and more solid food. You like fruits, know. The good stuff. You will eat vegetables too, but you make the worst faces when you do. You are still liking baby food too.
You have started scooting around the living room, and you pull up on your knees and rock back and forth. You mostly prefer to sit up, though.
You are still a fan of the jumperoo. I worry you will give yourself whiplash jumping around in it like a wildman.

You are in a big boy carseat now. You hold on to the sides of it for dear life.
You are starting to babble a lot more, and you can mimic quite a few sounds. 
You still love to shake your head no whenever you hear the word, and it makes you laugh so hard.
Sometimes when you get excited you sound like a barking seal.
Sometimes when you cry you sound like a barking seal.
You really just have the seal thing down.
