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!
