9 months

It's hard to believe I'll be planning the little dude's first birthday party soon...sniff sniff. He's just growing up too fast!! Here are his stats at 9 months:
- unofficially 19 lbs. - his dr. visit is next week
- using the army crawl to get wherever he needs to go
- his absolute favorite toy is a soft plush basketball that has a small rattle inside
- had his first Christmas (loved all the toys and actually got into opening his presents)
- gets up at 7am, eats breakfast (7oz bottle), plays for an hour and a half, takes a nap, eats lunch at 11:30 (7oz bottle + baby food), plays for 30 minutes, naps, plays, eats dinner at 4:30 (7oz bottle + baby food), plays, bath at 6:00 and then bedtime at 6:30 - I realize this is more info than you wanted to know but this is my record keeping
- finally likes 3rd foods and has tried rice husks (loved it the first time but now not so much)
- demands his food when he's hungry (the kid has some lungs!)
- isn't content to play in his exersaucer for longer than about 10 minutes; he's discovered he has the ability to move around on the floor and he fully expects to be able to use that ability at his leisure
- loves to watch Baby Einstein videos
- is finally sitting up for more than a few minutes at a time but he still doesn't last long
- started on Zantac today so hopefully he'll have some relief from the reflux soon
- hates getting dressed; would much rather go around naked all day
- rubs his ears when he's getting sleepy and is still so happy to be in his bed at the end of the day
- loves bathtime especially if big brother is in there with him

And, of course the pictures:
My mom got him this giraffe for Christmas. I'm hoping it'll be his Lion.
He looks so grown up here! (at least he does to me)
Love those little rolls. =)
"Munching" on his favorite toy. He loves this thing!!
Santa baby.
Now I know what my photography clients mean when they say they have a hard time choosing which pics to print. I have to pic one pic for his "9 month picture." Any suggestions? I also have one that I'm definitely getting printed but I can't post it here. It's of a certain (very adorable) bare back. =)
