9 Month Stats

I went to the doctor today and all is well. I am no longer a little peanut!! Prior to this appointment I had been floating around the 25th percentile for both height and weight. Today I was at the 50th percentile in both, weighing 19 lbs. 5 oz and measuring 28 inches long! I still have a tiny head though (like mommy). The doctor said that I looked good and it sounded like mommy was doing everything right!

Here is my 9 month "teaser" picture as well from my session last Thursday!

9 Months!!

Can you believe that I am already 9 months old!! Mommy can't believe that in just three short months I will be one year! My 9th month brough exciting new things: 100% ability to pull up on ANYTHING, cruising along furniture, cruising between furniture, people, toys, and anything else that is within my reach, more army crawling, some knee crawling if I'm in the mood, a general dislike for pureed vegetables, formula, new clothes, and a new haircut for mommy! It has been a great month with lots of fun, including visits from family and friends. I go to the doctor on Thursday and will a length/weight amount for you then!

Silly Tales from the Land of Roo

1) On Monday mommy gets the following report from daycare: A boy my age was laying on his back on the floor. I crawl over to him, climb half-way on top of him, and give him a giant open-mouth kiss!! Of course the daycare people thought it was hilarious, but I was just trying to ask him if he would be my friend!

2) On Tuesday night mommy had an interesting experience....3 times: Mommy wakes up to me crying, which happens about half of the nights but usually I got right back to sleep on my own. This time the crying isn't stopping though. So she comes downstairs to check on me and there I am sitting up in my crib....still asleep!! My only problem was that since I was still asleep I couldn't get back to the laying down position. As soon as mom layed me back on my tummy I was silent and slept great! Of course, I repeated this behavior two other times that night. Not sure what my problem was that night....guess I was dreaming about sitting up.

And although this picture has NOTHING to do with either of these stories, mommy wanted to share it anyway: me taking a break from playing to synchronized diving at the Olympics.

New Foods

Now that I am older I am getting more adventurous with foods. I always enjoy eating toast, applesauce, and yogurt, but mommy is trying to expand my meals a little bit. Tonight's order....Cheeseburger Macaroni!!! Here's how it went....

And WHAT is this?!

I don't think I'm going to like this!!'s fun to squish in my hands...

I'm not sure what I think of this...

Hey, this is pretty good!!

Bath Fun!

Mommy and I decided that I was big enough for the big bathtub now. I really enjoy swimming around in it and standing up on the side of the tub (which I'm not supposed to do). I also surprised mommy last night by picking up the cup that she uses to rinse my hair and drinking out of it! It was the first time I had every drank out of a cup.

My Big Girl Seat!

I got a new big girl seat today! It's so comfy, and I think Aunt Christine would approve of the coloring!
