Last night I found myself looking at old videos of Jake. I have to admit it made me a little sad. Time is just flying by. I know he's only 9 months old... but, how did that go so fast? I remember getting excited for each milestone.... but, now I want time to stop. Jake is so big. He's so happy and gives Grant and I so much joy. I thank God for this little guy everyday. What did I ever do without him? Seriously... What?
Well, I'm still excited for all the milestones in his growth, I want to take a second to take in 9 months. When I put on his sticker for "9 months" I couldn't really get a good shot. He's moving so much. He doesn't want to sit still. I did the best I could!
His 9 month appointment is June 21st so I'll update stats then. But, until then... here is what he's doing and up to:
*He started clapping at 6 months... and I'm now working on waving!
*He is throwing things forward and then chasing after it to throw it again! But, basically everything he gets he throws. He loves to throw!
*He laughs and talks like crazy!
*He's been saying mama, dada, and baba (Brady - our dog).
*He stands and walks along the furniture.
*Crawls super fast!
*Sleeps from 7:30pm till 6-6:30am.
*Wearing 24 month size clothes.
*Teething... no teeth still though. (Vicki said Grant didn't get teeth until 9 months).
*After he eats he says, "ummmmm" for yummy!
*24 oz of milk a day (or more pending day)
*Eats 3 times a day. From stuff I make to some Gerber/Earths Best foods.
*LOVES I MEAN LOVES Gerber puffs!
*Loves cous cous or rice.
*I seriously think he would rather eat what I'm eating. I usually give him a taste of what I'm eating if it's not spicy or over spiced.
