9 Months-Sullivan

Good grief it has been way too long since I have blogged.  I still have to catch up on our new house....maybe I have just found my new years resolution.  Needless to say we have been so busy these last few months.

I feel a little ahead of the game since you turn nine months old tomorrow.  This is by far my favorite age.  It is so fun to watch you learn new things, and the happiness.  You smile for days.

Stats: I am not completely sure, but last month you had to go to the Dr for the funk, and you weighed 25 lbs.  EVERYONE comments on how big you are.  I could just squeeze every inch of your fat little body.  Your nick name is "chunky monkey."

Eating: You LOVE to eat.  Anything and Everything.  You still have baby food at every meal, and I have started giving you a little of whatever we are eating.  You love bread, pasta, tomatoes, mashed potatoes, green beans.  Basically anything we have given you.  You still love your bottle too.  We give you 4 oz every few hours.  I have started giving you a sippy cup, and you are not too interested.  I think we just need to find the right kind.

Sleep: Thank goodness your sleep is getting better.  We put you down between 7 and 8, depending on when you get fussy.  You usually sleep through the night, but some nights you get up once.  Sometimes you get up in the morning about 7, other mornings you sleep until 8.  You still love sleeping in your bed, and I am so thankful for that.  You are actually pretty particular about being in your crib.  You like your bed, lights off, and quiet.  I tried putting you in bed with us when you were sick, and you were not having it.

Milestones: I feel like we have had so many milestones since my last post.  You have started getting on all fours,and doing the rocking thing.  You LOVE to stand up, and want to stand on the couch all time.  You will try to pull up if you are near something to climb on.  You need to stop that, mom is not ready for you to grow up.  You have two new teeth, and you look adorable with them.  You love to clap.  You say "mama" "dada" and "baba."  We are working on Patty Cake, and kisses.  Right now you just give open mouth slobbery kisses. I'll take it.  You are still obsessed with your brother and Bella. You LOVE taking a bath.

When it was warm you loved riding in your car.
We went to your first Christmas parade 

Here are a few more from this month....

You are the sweetest little boy, and it has been so fun watching you grow.  You are getting quite the little personality, and I don't think you will be our laid back little one for much longer.  You have a feisty side to you, and I have no idea where that came from :)  Your brother has really started to take up more time with you, and you are totally enamored with him.  I pray that you two will grow up being so close.  I am sure we are in for a lot of fighting, but I know you all will always love each other.  We love you so much Sully man, and thank God for choosing us to be your parents.
