9 months

Seriously? How has it been 3/4 of a year already with our sweet little boy? It seems impossible. It seems like he is 9 days old...not 9 months! Father Time, please stop ticking away!

And, oh, about the little not-blogging-for-a-month-deal...My sister was here for 3 weeks and I got lazy. Pure and simple.

Weight and Height: We go to the doctor on the 7th to get the exact measurements, but I know that he is tall and skinny with huge feet, like Daddy!

Teeth: 8! Holy moly! He's got 8 chompers in there! 4 on top, 4 on bottom.

Likes: Eating, being outside, pulling out toys, pulling hair, sippy cups, car rides, being tickled, putting his fingers in our mouths, swinging, making messes, pulling up, cruising around furniture, crawling through/under/over things, standing in his crib and screaming bloody murder, having his teeth brushed (aka: gnawing on the baby toothbrush), seeing Daddy walk through the door after work, chewing on me, throwing himself backwards while I am holding him so that he can look at the world upside down

Dislikes: these are the same as last month- being cleaned after eating, staying still, laying on his back, shirts going over his head. Really, he is very easy going and mild tempered, besides the constant noise factor.

Mobility: Cruising from furniture to furniture, pulling up, army crawling really fast, expert faller *side note: my dad skipped crawling on all 4's and went straight from army crawl to walking...hopefully C will take his time to get to the walking stage.

Vocals: He knows how to do the sign for the word more when he is ready for another bite! Bwa, B, T, S, Da, D, and maybe G. He talks a lot, screams a lot (not in a crying way, just in a loud boy way), growls, blows raspberries and clicks his tongue! It has been a big month for vocals!

Eating: He's pretty much eating off of our plates at this point, with the exception of citrus, tomatoes and stuff like that. A typical meal is some combo of fruit, veggies, cheerios, yogurt, applesauce, cheese, oatmeal or cereal and puffs. It's ah-mazing to be able to put food on his tray and let him feed himself! What freedom!!! I still nurse 2-3 times a day. He is losing interest in it and it makes me horribly sad.

Firsts: First time to go swimming in a big pool, first time to watch Willy Wonka! Ok, so he watched like 5 minutes of it, but it is my favorite movie in the whole wide world and I was so excited to let him see it! He was entranced!

~This month~

-Carson waves hi and bye (but only when he feels like it). He likes to wave at people who pass us in the grocery store and it makes me smile.
-We had to put corner covers on the furniture to prevent {some} bumps to the noggin, although, he still manages to get quite a few.
-Daddy and "Uncle Danny" built Carson's swing set!

-We hung out a lot in our igloo tent
