Nine months old!

Owen is nine months old! That's 3/4 the way to his first birthday (yes, I've started planning the party)!

These monthly puppy pics are getting quite challenging! He immediately crawls away!!
At his check up he weighed 18 lbs 11oz (just below 25th percentile) and measured 27 in long (15th percentile). His head is still in the 97th percentile (it's all brains)! He is now between size 2 and 3 diapers and is finally wearing size 6-9 months outfits! He has been teething like crazy over the past several days and Dr. Flippin said that his first tooth should pop through any day now! Hopefully he will start sleeping again after that.....
Bath time is still a favorite! He loves his toys and has started leaning forward far enough to almost topple over....time to find a toddler tub chair!

He has finally started consuming an average of three jars of food per day. He still loves puffs and crackers and has recently started snacking on teething buscuits. After having two infants I am confident that these are the messiest things in the world!!
He can army crawl like a champ...and is getting faster by the day!! Often I will look up and see him on one end of a room and a few moments later look up and find him on the opposite side of the room! I have already found him trying to pull an outlet cover off....what a curious little guy! He has pulled up from a sitting position to standing on the bath tub and in the hotel crib earlier this month. Slow down buddy! It has become rather challenging to watch out for his sister's small toys and pieces to toys....what a job! He finds EVERYthing!! Emma has finally become more particular about what he can and cannot play with. I knew the day would come.

He has started exploring with his voice and often says "Dadada" although I don't think he associates it with "Daddy" yet. When I say "Mama" he stops what he is doing and studies my lips to figure out how to do it :) He has finally started getting more hair but not much!
