Happy 9 Months to my Baby Boy!

Christian is 9 months old!!! We had his check up today and he is still in the same growth pattern; long and lean! He now weighs 17 pounds and 8.5 ounces (10th %) and is 29 1/2 inches (90th %) He is as cute as ever and continues to make us laugh constantly. He is really trying to keep up with Nicholas so it just seems like everyhting is happening even more quickly than the first time. I'm actually WORRIED he might walk soon, as he is now beginning to pull himself up to standing without holding on to anything for 10 - 15 seconds. I really hope he can hold off the whole walking business until at least a year because I'm not ready for the insanity of TWO kids on their feet!

Just like his brother... loves his turkey meatballs. He has been on a pureed food boycott, so he's eating mostly finger foods at the moment. A good shot of his two front teeth!

"I may be trouble, but aren't I cute?"
Yes, that's him pulling on the vertical blinds on our sliding glass door. He seems to love everything he's not suppose to get into.

Christian's idea of entertainment? Pull himself up to a stand unassisted, hold his arms high in the air and giggle. He will do this over and over again, all day long. He's getting better and better at it.

He is amazing! You may be in trouble soon - it sure does look like Christian is ready to walk. Can't wait to see all of you soon.

Ha ha great shots Kell. I see you SOOOO much in Christian. It's so cute. Just think, after walking then he will be potty trained. Think positive :) Love you! Dana
