9 Months Old

(He's actually 9 months tomorrow but tomorrow is a busy day so I'm posting now)

Height: 29 3/4"
Weight: 21.6 pounds
Fun: 10/10

He's not so into the crawling

He loves this animal book, its got lotsa stuff to feel in it (like rough `skin' and soft `fur')

His favourite place to stand is looking into the toybox. He has mastered standing using one hand and then using the other to dig through treasures.

When you press the ducks foot, it prays. Kai always looks at me like, `Mom!! Can you believe this stuffed animal is talking to me?!'

Wow. These past 2 months have flown by, unlike the last 2 months of pregancy which dragged on forever!! What has Kai done new this month? Let's see.
-He loves standing by holding on to anything
-He is not really loving sitting and playing with his toys anymore
-He has tried new foods and is eating a lot! (new foods this month were yogurt, whole peas and banana chunks and I forget what else:))
-He's not really sure how to feed himself, I gave him a bigger piece of bread today and he was able to feed himself so hopefully his pointer finger and thumb work out a system soon.
-He still has no teeth.
-He does not like being on his belly one bit which makes practicing crawling very difficult. He can crawl/push himself backwards or in circles.
-He is an angel in the nursery..phew.
-He loves going on walks
-He loves looking in the mirror
-He started giving hugs when he's tired
-He goes to bed at 7:30pm (usually although sometimes will wake up at 9:30pm and want to play for an hour) and wakes up at 7:30am
-He has one nap at 9:30 and the other at 1:30 (each one about an hour or two). He cries for maybe 20 seconds for these naps...what a dream!!!!!!!
I'm sure he does lots of other fun stuff but that's all I can think of right now. I'm really looking forward to him walking around...I know I better be careful what I ask for but right now he is needing a lot of entertainment and also, he's getting kind of heavy! I loved month 8, it was the easiest one by far and I guess the most enjoyable too. Looking forward to his 9th month!


  1. K wait...the duck prays? How does that work?!

  4. He's looking cuter every photo you post! I can hardly believe he's 9 months- quite a difference from the day I saw him in the stroller while we had coffee!

  5. He is cute. Nice to have a good baby huh? He is getting much more inquisitive and that is fun. Wait till he walks, another new adventure. Every day something new. Amazing they are!
