Nine Months

Whoa! Nine months, already? You gotta be kidding me right? My boy is growing up so incredibly fast. Owen turned 9 months on Monday. He has definitely come alive these days. He LOVES his big sister and watches her constantly. I have a feeling we are in for a rough time when these two get together! He has already learned how to scream to get our attention or his way (just like his sister!). He loves to EAT and has yet to turn down anything I've offered him. He can now hold his own bottle and actually prefers that you just give it to him on the floor as opposed to being held. Bath time is I think his absolute favorite. He could play for hours in the water. He is going to love the pool this summer. His latest sound/word is "UH-OH" and while he is still perfecting it you can definitely make it out. Still no "MA MA" yet but I'm not rushing it as I'm sure I'll hear plenty of that in the years to come! :) He is starting to use a sippy cup just a little and actually has taken quite an interest in it. Every now and then he will try to get up on his hands and knees to crawl but prefers the tummy combat crawl when he is after something. If you lay him down on the floor on his back he is constantly moving his arms and legs like a bug on its back. It's pretty funny (maybe I need to video that sometime!) :) He HATES to be left in a room by himself. Even if you just walk to another room and come right back he immediately goes to hollering. The second you walk back in the room he starts to laugh! He is an awesome sleeper (Thank you God!!) and definitely outsleeps his sister which I was worried about since they share a room. Owen usually goes down about 8:30 or so and will sleep most mornings until at least 7am but probably later if we didn't have to get out to be somewhere everyday. He still takes two naps but usually has to fight to get them since we are on the run so much. Luckily he sleeps very well in the car seat! :) His hair is growing like crazy and it won't be long before it is time to go see "Ms Pat". The monthly pictures are starting to get increasingly harder as it is difficult for him to be still anymore. He has started wrinkling his nose up when he smiles and it is just too cute!

Here's a look back over the past eight months:
