I say this every month, but I can't believe Brooks is already 9 months old. It's flown by and I want it to slow down!! He's such a good, happy baby and we love him SO MUCH!! Here is what he's up to these days.
-Brooks, you weigh around 18 lbs and wear size 3 diapers
-You are wearing 6-9 month clothes
-You still take 5 bottles a day and it's usually 2 6 oz bottles and the rest are about 4 oz.
-You eat baby food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, however we have let you try some table food and you love it all. Actually you get mad if we're holding you and trying to eat something and we don't let you taste it.
-You can drink from a sippy cup really good, but your even better at drinking out of a big cup with no lid. I guess your wanting to skip the sippy cup phase!
-You have taken 1 step all by yourself since last month, it's a matter of time now.
-You either crawl where you want to go or you get up and push something and walk to where you want to go.
-You can stand up all by yourself now. If your sitting and want to stand you can do it without holding on to anything. When we realize your standing we clap and say yay Brooks and you get so excited, it's so cute.
-You are sleeping through the night and for that we are thankful!
-You can say dada, momma, nana, quack-quack and we think you are saying hey now
-You clap your hands anytime we say yay Brooks or when you do something your proud of
-We sit and roll the ball back and forth to you all the time and you do so good at rolling it back to us and catching it, we can even tell you to get the ball and you go straight to it.
-You absolutely love your sister and wish she'd play with you all day long, when yall are playing together it melts my heart.
Your smiling so big your eyes are barely open, you get this from mommy!
So serious!! I love this...
You and Emma Bean
I'm sure there are some things I'm forgetting that you are doing because you do something new everyday and you are so smart and strong! We love you so much and can't believe in 3 short months you'll be 1 year old. I could cry just thinking about it! Happy 9 month birthday sweet baby boy!!
We love you,
Mommy, Daddy & Emma
