According to weeks, Ben is 9 months today. I normally count by the date (29th), but in this case weeks makes me not late! So he's 9 months today!
I seriously feel like I just wrote his 8 month post a week ago.
Here's what Ben is up to at 9 months:
-scooting and rocking on his bottom (no crawling).
-picking up finger foods, starting to refuse purees.
-drinking about 30 oz of formula a day.
-sleeping pretty well at night. Some night wakings here and there. Good and bad weeks.
-babbles (mama, baba), laughs, squeals, blows raspberries.
-thinking about and trying to pull up.
-shakes his head and pushes your hand away when he doesn't want something.
-stands with assistance.
-generally very happy and likes people (no apparent stranger danger yet, as long as he's not tired).
-loves to be held and talked to.
-smiles all the time.
-thinks Avery is hilarious.
-has 4 teeth
-wears 9 month clothes.
-loves to jump.
-cuddly and loving.

He is still having some skin issues. He had blood taken last Friday for allergy testing. We should know the results in a couple weeks.
He is our lovable little guy and he makes us so, so happy.
Oh yes, and he's absolutely adorable.
