Nine Months

When I first started these monthly updates, I made it my goal to have them up on the 19th of every month when he actually turned another month older. Now, if I can just get it posted before he turns another month it's a win. Finn actually turned 9 months while we were at the beach, but it has been a whirlwind of busyness since we've been back. Well the biggest thing for this month is that we now have a crawler on our hands! Sweet boy has been scooting backwards for quite some time, but he has now managed to go forwards. Right now, it's more of an army style belly crawl but he is getting quicker every day. He has also gotten his two top center teeth and seemed to have a rougher time with these than his bottom two. He has now started some finger foods, but still isn't quite sure what to think yet, so we're still doing a combo of finger foods and purees. This little boy loves to sleep and it makes mommy and daddy so happy! He goes to bed each night between 6:30 and 7 and sleeps until 6:30 the next morning while still taking two long naps each day. We are most thankful! Within the past few days he has also started pulling up on furniture, us, whatever he can get his sticky little hands to grab onto.

He is up to 21lbs and 27 in. This puts him in the 75% for weight and only the 10% for height :)

Here are some pics from the month!

Taking in some World Cup action in the jersey daddy got him in Trinidad.

We have also had to lower his crib! We will catch him sitting up and looking around and so desperately want to know what he's thinking.
The paper at the doctor's office is the best. toy. ever. This was our 9 month check-up.
At the Golfsmith store watching daddy putt.
...and drive. He would jump every single time.
Puffs are our fav snack of the moment.
Showing off those crawling skills.
Now for the 9 month photos! These are definitely getting harder to capture as someone does not like sitting still!

Sweet boy, we love you more than you know! We love watching you grow and explore each month. You fill our hearts with joy and your big open-mouth grins put smiles on our faces. We are so blessed to be your mommy and daddy!
