geesh mom!

"hmmm...what did mom want me to do again??"
open my mouth?? that's odd but, alright...
"what?? that's not it either? okay fine, fine, fine...geesh woman!"
"happy now?"

peanut is now 9 months old. nine months! can you even believe it? he is a whopping 17lbs 8 oz and is 27.5 inches long. he now has FOUR teeth. he eats table food with us now, most of the time you cannot convince him to eat that pureed stuff---he's way to cool for that. give him cheerios, cooked peas or pieces of carrot and he'll eat you out of house and home. and if you decide to give him crumbles of cheese make sure you have a TON on hand or he will promptly throw a fit. oh did i mention he can throw fits? like nobodies business!

he is sitting independently and occasionally pulls himself up, though still not crawling. he says ''da-da'' to B and babbles all day. he loves to watch his brother's play, and gets a kick out of playing pat-a-cake. he has started waving hi and bye and loves riding in shopping carts. he's a flirt and stubborn, a great napper but a horrible sleeper. and out of all three boys he's my only mama's boy, which i've learned is a blessing and a curse :)

  2. Have you thought about baby sign language for peanut? I talked to a mom yesterday that said she started it with her son when he was 9months old cause he was always throwing fits. She said he picked it up pretty quickly and it helped him tell her what he wanted. I don't personally know if it works or how easy it is but I can't wait to try it with E!
