.9 Month Stats.

Greyden has his 9 month check up yesterday. 
Here are his stats:
Weight: 20 lbs 15 oz (52%)
Height: 29 3/4 inches (78%)
Head: 18.9 inches (98%)

Funny Moment: The Medical Assistant had measured his head while he was being weighed. When she entered it in on the computer I could see it was at the top of the curve. She stated that she must have written it down wrong and wanted to measure again. I told her she had probably gotten it right as I know my son has a large head...turns out my son has a large head. 

I learned something new as well. Turns out that when a baby has a large head, there can be some reason for concern. There can be extra fluid that is putting pressure on the babies brain and it can hamper their development. The Dr. reassured me that there was no need for concern considering the level Greyden is at with his ability to get from point A to point B quite efficiently. 

Speaking of Greyden getting from A to B...he has MASTERED climbing on the LoveSac and zooms around on that thing like he can't fall off. I can't really blockade him off from getting on the LoveSac. So for now, I just have to haul him around with me if I leave the living room. He also showed me that he can climb stairs while we were over at my Sister-in-laws yesterday. He is definitely ALL BOY with a little bit of sweetness thrown in.
He can pull himself to standing pretty much ANYWHERE and is so proud of himself. He will definitely be walking by his 1st birthday. 

He is also ahead a bit when it comes to the sounds he is making. If you know my children, they are all VERY vocal...which can be extremely wonderful and highly embarrassing given the situation.

.9 Months.

It seems like just yesterday I wrote a post about my baby turning 8 months old...he is 9 months old already!!!!! Where in the world has the past 9 months gone?!?
As you can see, he is growing quite quickly. He is still so stinkin' handsome and extremely good-natured. He is a VERY happy baby and gives the best smiles EVER!

Right before he turned 9 months old, I thought it was time for a haircut. I told Aaron right after we found out that we were having a boy that I wasn't really in to shaggy/long hair on little boys. I have my girls for the long beautiful locks. His hair had come in quite even and it didn't look bad, but I guess I was just overly excited for him to have a real haircut. So one Saturday morning after breakfast we cut it off!

As you can see, he thought it was quite nice. ;)

Greyden is now eating solid foods. Pretty much anything we eat, he is eating right along with us. He still nurses for comfort and to fall asleep. I quite enjoy the fact that we still have those little moments together and I don't plan on weaning him any time soon.

As of Saturday he has started crawling on his knees!! He will still army crawl when he wants to get somewhere quickly, but he is practicing crawling on his knees more and more.

This little guy LOVES to be outside! If we don't get outside at least once during the day, he is a bit cranky come that evening. Thank goodness the weather is warming up!

I am not sure how I got SO lucky to be this little guy's Mommy, but I sure am grateful and enjoying EVERY single second that I can with him.
