Happy Nine Months, Allen! {a day late}

Nine Months of Cuddles..

Nine Months of Laughter..

Nine Months of Pure Happiness..

I can't believe our little man is nine months old already! He has officially been out of my body longer than inside! I realized that a few days ago and couldn't believe it. I told Dave that and he said that my pregnancy didn't seem to go that fast.. haha 

Allen is a fabulous eater and will practically eat anything you put in front of him. He doesn't heat baby food anymore and eats what we eat. His favorite snacks are Mum Mums and Arrowroot Cookies. He was introduced to the yogurt melts yesterday and loved them! He is still on Up & Up formula and has four 8oz bottles a day. He loves getting juice or water in a sippy, too! 

This little guy is such a ham! His personality has just soared and will laugh at anything. He is already in 12 month clothes and jammies. I can squeeze him into some of his 9 month clothes, but for the most part, they are all packed up. At a check up a few weeks ago, he was weighing 20lbs 8oz and 29 3/4 inches tall.. He goes in for his 9 month check up on the 19th. He is still in size 3 diapers, also.

His sleep schedule is about the same.. He is still waking up 1-2x a night for a bottle. I am going to try to get rid of the extra feedings in the middle of the night. During the day he takes 2 naps. One when we get home from dropping the kids off at school and one in the afternoon around 2p. He loves his naps, they usually range from 2-3.5 hours! He can recognize everyone. When we ask him where dj, reagan, daddy, mommy, etc. are, he will look straight at you and wave :)

Allen has learned a lot these past few weeks! For instance, he loves to play peek a boo! We usually do this when we are changing his diaper. He will cover his face with his pants and quickly show his face and we say boo! He thinks its the funniest thing. He loves to wave at anything and everything. If someone comes up to him in the store, he will wave :) Allen also started WALKING about a week ago! I couldn't believe it when I saw him let go of the coffee table and start walking.. {video will be at the bottom} Allen is a complete chatterbox. He loves to talk and just make noise.. He can say mama, baba, papa, dada, mum mum {for food}.. He loves to yell and then tap his mouth with his hand, I can't describe it, but you know what I mean.. hahaha

He tried escaping throughout the photo taking... Little Stinker!!

I Love You, Allen James!!!!
