9 Months Old

(This is the Precious, with a capital P, outfit my Aunt Barb and Uncle John got Alex! Yes, that is his name embroidered on it! LOVE it!! Thanks again!)

In honor of the occasion I wrote this acrostic poem (fancy, huh?!):

A- Always moving- up down and all around! and he has pretty much mastered it with out falling! yea! He is slowly cruising the furniture even!
L- Loves to swing on his new swing! He still just loves to be outside!
- Ear infection, first one this month
X- eXtra cute with his 5 teeth! 3 on top and 2 on the bottom...waiting on that 4th top to bust on through!
A-always wants mom :)
N-not sleeping through the night but doing MUCH better. I only get up twice! yea! Never thought I would cheer about that. We will be moving to a "once a night" soon. very soon lil buddy!
D-decided that changing his diaper and clothes is for the birds! and wants nothing to do with it. lil toot.
E-eats!! He loves fruits and puffs. We have started trying some solids and he seems to do better with the veggies that way. I don't really care what he eats. I am just so proud of him for becoming an eater!!
R-rides in his new big boy car seat now! I had to have a "moment" when I told Travis to put the infant carrier in the attic! :(

His 9 month stats are...
Length- 28.5 in (50-75%)
Head - 45.5 cm (50-75%)
Weight- 17lbs 14oz (10-25%)

Oh he is so cute and wonderful Cassie, I just loved babysitting him last week! I love that shirt your aunt gave him! Just think, one day, I bet you could do the monograming yourself! Happy 9 months Alex!
