9 months

Crosby is 9 months old today and I must say...I can hardly believe it!  What a fast 9 months this has been!

He weighs 21 lbs, 10 oz. and is 29 inches long.  He can say mama and dada.  He waves hi and bye and just today started shaking his head back and forth like he is saying no.  If you do it, then he will copy you.  It's pretty cute.  

He still nurses about 5 or 6 times during the day and usually 2 times at night.  He is not a good sleeper, but we are making it. :-)  He likes to eat baby food and will eat pretty much any table food you put in front of him...even if he doesn't have teeth.  Here he is enjoying pancakes one recent Saturday morning.  

He is learning to drink out of a sippy cup.

And he loves playing with big brother's toys.

Poor baby had his first trip to the ER last Saturday.  He woke up with a fever and croupy cough so we took him in.  Good thing we did because it turns out he had strep (which he caught from Jonathan).  They put him on an antibiotic and then he woke up Monday morning wheezing so I took him to his pediatrician. She diagnosed him with a bronchial infection, did a breathing treatment in the office and then sent us home with our very own seal shaped breathing machine.  Doing breathing treatments on a wiggly 9 month old has been a blast.  Luckily he is on the mend.

He learned to crawl and pull up about 2 weeks ago so it has been "game on" ever since!  He is an explorer just like his brother was!

Wearing his Christmas outfit that I made him in my sewing class back in September.


We love you Crosby!
