Somebody is 9 months old


Fun with Momma

You can't expect me to sit in this chair forever...or even for 30 seconds!

Standing of his favorite things to do these days

Loving on Daddy
It's true, Landon turned 9 months old January 26th.  He saw Dr. H last Friday.  She was happy with his overall health and progress.  In her words, "he's perfect".  Music to Momma and Daddy's ears!  He weighed in at 23 pounds 3.5 ounces and measured 28.5 inches.  Here are a some of the things Landon entertains us with these days:

  • Crawling like a champ with his tummy off the floor
  • Pulling up on EVERYTHING, including Levi (our dog)
  • Standing for a few seconds on his own
  • Cruising around the furniture
  • Saying "Momma", "Dada", "Nana" and, as of today, "bye-bye"  (sounds more like bah-bah)   
  • He waves when he wants to.  Seems like he would rather just talk.  Imagine that...I have NO idea where he gets it.  :-)
  • Constant chatter
  • Sleeps 12 hours at night and 2 naps a day.  We are super blessed to have such a great sleeper!
  • He has 6 teeth...we think he's trying to get more. 
  • Wears 12 to 18 month clothing
  • Clicks his tongue (learned this one from Grandma)
  • He's almost mastered clapping his hands
  • Loves to play patty cake
  • Likes to take our hands and clap them together
  • I'm sure there are lots of other things but this is all I can think of right now 
We are very grateful for my Momma.  She is with Landon while we work and we could not have a better care giver.  She loves him and teaches him things.  He adores her and his face lights up when he sees her. 

Uh oh...someone is getting fussy...darn teething!  I'll write more later.
