9 Months

I know I've said it before.  Probably every time I talk about him, but my baby is 9 months old.  Seriously not sure how that happened.  He's getting so big!  And definitely looks less like a baby and much more like a little boy now.  He's so fun to watch grow.  I hate that he's getting so big, but at least he's cute while he does it:)  He might go down in the history books as being the fourth child with the most pictures of himself.  Seriously.....I can't get enough of this cutie and he's still willing to let me photograph him:)  So I take advantage of that whenever I can!

So, for your reading pleasure, here's some little facts you may or may not know about little man.
At 9 months he weighs right in around 22 pounds.  I should note that this is only about 2 lbs less than his 2 year old brother:)  If he keeps up his growth rate, he is very quickly going to surpass Parker!  He loves to feed himself puffs at meal times and also enjoys soaking himself with his water.  He eats lunch and dinner at the table like a big boy with us and I am very slowly (I can only let him grow up so fast!!) starting to try to introduce table food to him.  He crawls everywhere and is into EVERYTHING.  I mean it, this kid is fast.  And ornery.  He will find whatever it is in the room he isn't supposed to have and get it:)  He's quiet while he does it too.  He's got it figured out....fourth kid...if he stays quiet he can get away with more because the older three are distracting me and I don't realize he's getting into mischief.  I'm already starting to picture the trouble he and Parker are going to get into when they pair up.  Those two together will be very dangerous.  Mark my words!  He also pulls up on anything he can and is starting to walk around things.  Last week he started climbing up the stairs too.  So really, nothing is safe with this little one around.  Especially with his curiosity for life. True to fourth child syndrome, he is doing everything MUCH faster than his brothers and sister did.  I was definitely not prepared for that.  He's my last baby and I would like to keep him that way as long as possible.  But that little stinker is doing everything in his power to work against me and grow up so fast.  He's a true mama's boy.  He even said mama first.  WooHOO!!  The other three all said dada first, so I was so excited when mama is what came out of his mouth:)  And I tease Brian that since he said mama first, he likes me best.  Which may actually be true.  But probably only because I still feed him.  A lot.  There's some things I'm just not ready to give up.  And since I can control that, I most certainly do!:)  

So, here's our "littlest" man at 9 months.  Of course I decided I needed some pictures of him on his 9 month birthday, so we got some squeezed in between the weird weather on that day.

  1. Love that little man! I feel the same way - don't want Levin to grow up to fast. I'm LOVING the baby stage this time around!
