9 Months

We are settling in to our NEW home in Texas and we absolutely LOVE it! We closed on our house April 30th, moved in May 2 and left for my brother in law, Jonathan's, Law school graduation in Michigan May 4. To say the house is literally a disaster is an understatement. Boxes everywhere! Furniture being delivered almost every day. Painters and crown molding peeps up in here!! One day we might get unpacked. Hopefully, before August and our sweet boys FIRST birthday (that I need to start planning, like yesterday).

So much has happened this past month it's not even funny! Sad, really because my babies aren't going to be real babies for much longer :(

 You now have SIX teeth and you like to use them! You have bitten me a time or two and today you got your brother really good on his wrist. Normally, it's on his foot! haha. You are an excellent teether and never shed any tears from getting a new tooth. Occasionally, you won't finish an entire bottle, but that's it. Thank goodness! You are constantly on the move and pulling up on everything. You can say mama, dada, bye bye and even a "sentence" bye bye, dada dada! It's so cute! You are starting to get sweet curls in the back near your ears, but you still look like your daddy spit you out of his mouth! You have been such an easy baby lately, which has been nice because we have been on the go since we got to Texas! Sometimes, you are tired of going though and whine when I get you in and out of the stroller and car seat so many times. I know you are going to get upset I post this, but anytime (and everytime) I put you in a smocked outfit you poop all over it. I had to strip you down in the church parking lot a few Sunday's ago and change your entire outfit. Poop was even on daddy's shoes, but it was SO funny! You love to laugh at your big brother and light up when daddy gets home from work, which is normally right after bath time. You hold your own bottle and have started taking a sippy cup of water if we are out and about and it isn't time for you to eat yet. You love puffs! When you are full and don't want anymore food, you shake your head no. You have 3-4 solid foods per day and 4 sometimes 5 bottles. You both are so consistent with your sleep and wake times and I am so lucky to have such wonderful sleepers! Bedtime is at 7:30 and you wake up at 8! Then go back to bed at 10 and wake about 11 or 11:30. We leave the house after that nap and you normally have another nap around 3:30 when we get back home. You have started to climb up on top of things and I don't think you are scared to do anything! You love to stand up in your crib, which scares me to death even though your crib is at the lowest level. You have adjusted so well to your new home and I know you will love it in Texas!

 You have FOUR teeth! When you are having problems with a tooth you don't like to finish an entire bottle, but you never fuss with it really. EVERYTHING goes into your mouth. You still love your paci. You crawl and can even walk using your push walker. You started clapping your chubby, little hands and when I say yayyy! you clap and squeal. You can say bye bye and dada. We are working on mama, still. If you weren't such a mama's boy I would be sad you didn't say mama yet. You are finally getting more hair and it is coming in blonde! You are sleeping so well, still! Bedtime is anywhere between 7:30- 8:00 and you wake up around 8! You HATE puffs and would rather play with them than put them in your mouth. You love to play with Thayer and chuckle so loud anytime you two are playing. You love to ride in the car and look out the window. You really are very easy to take out and about. You love your baby einstein table and a blow up ball from Gran. You are eating 3-4 solid foods per day and normally 4 bottles. You take a sippy cup, but normally the water is all over you! You keep shoes on your fat little feet for about 20 minutes and then you kick them off. You are doing so well in your new home and I love being able to stay at home everyday with you and your baby brother!
