Officially 9 Months

Colton is still such a happy baby and we are so blessed to have him in our lives!

Weight:  24 lbs 10 ounces
Height: 30 1/2 inches

Things Colton has been doing:
  • Pulls up on everything
  • Starting to stand on his own
  • Walks around the furniture and behind his push walker
  • Will walk around if you hold his hands but his belly gets going quicker than his feet!
  • Sticks out his tongue and blows spit bubbles
  • Can say "dada", "mama", "nana", "good" (we often think we hear "good girl" and "good dog"), "dog", "ba ba" which often sounds like "bye bye" and I think I've heard him say what could be translated as "shit" but I'm hoping it was a fluke and he's trying to tell the dog to sit.  He has just started to make words starting with the "t" sound.
  • Biting ... he doesn't realize it because he's actually biting on our clothes but man it hurts.  We're working on breaking that and it's slowly getting better.
  • Eats any and everything (including paper ... yeah I know ... bad mommy!)  He's getting better at feeding himself with his hands but he definitely prefers for you to feed him.
  • Sippy cup pro ... loves his juices!
  • Puts his arms straight up in the air when he wants to be picked up.
  • Swims (well attends swim classes but it's just 30 minutes of playing in the water) ... HE LOVES IT!
  • Takes off his own diapers if he's not wearing pants.
  • He loves to roll over and take off speed crawling when you're trying to change his diaper.
  • Plays ball with Dakota
  • Likes to roll a ball back and forth with mommy and daddy
  • Goes to the 1 year room for an hour or so each day ... so he has to wear shoes all the time now which I don't think he cares too much for.
  • He's still in 18 month clothing and wears a size 4 shoe.
  • He has been sleeping from 8:00PM to 6:00AM lately which is really nice for us!
  • He naps twice a day ... each nap can be as short as 20 minutes to up to an hour and a half long.  You can definitely tell the days he has shorter naps!
  • Still only 4 teeth but we have another tooth causing some discomfort right now.
