nine months

My baby is now nine months. 
 I can hardly call him a baby anymore -- he looks like a little boy.  

He now has a few characteristics that can be attributed to one of us specifically:
From his Dada
still only 2 teeth!
  • very social!  smiles at everyone and easily makes friends.  
  • intent on figuring things out
  • his looks {except the eyes}
From his Mama
  • lots and lots of energy!
  • fierce appetite
  • big blue eyes
  • dislikes being restrained in any way

Other nine month milestones?
  • He finally sleeps through the night!  From 7pm to 7am, not one peep.
  • Clearly understands many words and phrases -- ball, basket, dog, mama, dada, books, "turn the page," "put it in" milk, food, 
  • Not walking yet, but will cruise and then take a step off whatever he is holding onto and try to walk to me.  He falls immediately, but at least he is trying!  :)
  • Height: 27.75 inches {50th percentile} Weight: 19 lbs. 14 oz. {25th percentile}  Head: 18.5 inches {90th percentile}
