Zeke's 9 Month Check-up

I took Mr. Zeke to the doctor for his 9 month check-up.

Yep, he's big!

20 pounds, 7 ounces. 29 inches long.

No shots this time, thankfully.

In other baby milestone news:

  • He can now drink out of his sippy cup by himself -- and LOVES to, even when he's not thirsty.

  • He got to graduate to his "big boy" car seat, facing forward! Glory Hallelujah! I was so tired of lugging that heavy old baby seat in and out of the car.

  • He gives kisses to my Mom upon request, which is probably the sweetest thing you've ever seen in your life.

  • He crawls backwards, and almost forward. It won't me long now. Just today he made 2 forward scoots on all fours.

  • He says "da-da" appropriately when referring to Manny. And "ma-ma" for me. He makes a funny squealing sound for Elijah.

  • When he wants more of something he grunts {very loudly} like a bear. I'm working on teaching him the sign for "more" in stead.

  • He giggles when we put him in the swing outside.

  • He loves pizza crust.

Love the idea of sidewalk chalk for the stats at the dr apt. So creative! He is getting so big!
