The last month, Instagram style! 
(aka picture overload)

Brother's being adorable
(and baby being contained without him even realizing it)

Bought these for Milo. Then proceeded to finish the bag while he was asleep.  WHAT? Have you tried them!?

Totally obsessed with the dog water. All. Day. Long.

Reading brother a book before bath time.

Being cute.

Let Milo go through my fabric and pick something out for a quilt since he asked me to make him one. 25 mismatched fabrics later I had my mission.

Eating 23 hours out of the day.

This kid chooses to sleep on the floor like at least 5 days out of the week and then we have to move him into his bed later when he is asleep. Weirdo.

Buy these and thank me later.

Climbing. ALREADY.

Birthday boots. Come to mama!

Party like a rockstar.

Cousin love!

I got crabs for my birthday.

Fair day!

MY favorite part of fair day. Wine Slushies!

Baby's First Tatoo

Just call him Elton.

9 Months Old!

Height: 29" (75%)
Weight: 18.2 lbs (11%)

Dear Parker:

Nine months old! 3/4 of the way to your birthday! And you have been busy this past month! You are crawling, pulling up, climbing, and starting to cruise. You are into everything. You have 3 teeth, with the 4th just days aways. And you are eating EVERYTHING. It has been a crazy and exhausting month I think!

You love to eat. You eat a couple jars of baby food at every meal PLUS snacks and things everyone else is eating.  (Its probably better I gave up on making your baby food pretty quickly because I really don't think I could keep up with your appetite!) Really, the only time you aren't mellow is when someone has food they won't share with you and then you have this screech that lets anyone even close that you want food!  I'm surprised that you don't weigh more this month but I think you just offset all that food with how active and mobile you are already.

You are nursing 4 times a day right now, sometimes 5 if you get up extra early in the morning. You're wearing 6-12 months clothes still but I think we'll have to switch you into some 12-18 stuff as soon as it cools down because you are so tall already. Not a problem with shorts but it will be with pants! And you are still in size 4 diapers.

You love to play with the piano, the laugh and learn house, and to CLIMB onto the anywhere chair even though you don't know how to get down gracefully yet.  You also LOVE to go after Bella's water dish so I have to move it when you are in the room. It is easily the first thing you go to when its around.  You and your brother are such a pair and love each other so much! You fight about toys sometimes (already!) and I have to remind him often to be gentle but he loves you like crazy! He likes to hold you and make you laugh and he is always excited when you wake up from your naps.

Parker you are such a big boy, turning into a toddler before our eyes! Its getting crazy here but we love it!
