Well, some how in the madness of moving and life I totally missed my 9 month update. Oops. Life has been going by so fast and I can't seem to completely catch up- ever! I wanted to type that I have been too 'busy'... but the truth is I have been enjoying our days together so much that I haven't had the desire to sit in front of the computer for some time. Since it all blurs together, I'm just going to recap he past two months together.
Speaking of crawling... Logan was army crawling all over the place until about 9 months when we moved into our new house. I think the hard wood floors creeped him out and he has been regular crawling ever since. It took him a while but he finally found the stairs. He crawled right over and started climbing... didn't even stop for a second. How do babies just know what to do? We installed a gate at the top of our stairs and are working on a solution for the bottom because we do not want to drill into the banister.
We are definitely clapping and waving. Logan loves to start clapping then stop when we clap with him and once we stop, he starts again. At first I thought it was a funny game we were playing with him but I quickly realized that it's a fun game he is playing with us... too smart already!
Logan will now give kisses and share his toys or food.
He is pulling up and cruising on everything but doesn't seem to interested in trying to stand or walk on his own (or with the walker toy we have for him).
He likes to open and close things... books, doors, cabinets. We have the little people farm and it makes animal noises when he opens the barn doors. He and I both love it! Too cute.
Dislikes: Getting dressed or diaper changed. Getting into and out of the carseat.
Noises: We are babbling and have heard Mama and Baba quite a few times (even though he says Mama more often) Pretty sure we can mark those down as his first words. :)
Worst moment- I left for 5 days on a girls weekend and face timing with Logan was killer. I'm writing a post on the experience for a later discussion.
Best moment- Moving into our house and making it a home for my little family of 3.
At his 9 month checkup he weighed 18lbs 6oz.
