9 Months on Mother's Day

We enjoyed a sweet Mother's Day breakfast at our favorite little spot with our dear friends the Spinks.
Stacey requested LOTS of potatoes and the waitress just kept them coming!
Zachary loved sitting up in the highchair and watching all the people!
Zachary has continued to grow and learn new things this month. Now that he is 9 months old, it doesn't feel like I have a baby any more but a little boy. Zachary hasn't figured out how to crawl yet, but at the rate that he is able to roll across the floor I'm sure he'll figure it out soon.

We've added to the menu . . .

  • Bananas

  • Turkey

  • Beef

  • Green Beans

  • Carrots

  • Veggie Puffs

  • Rice

He can now . . .

  • Sit in a highchair at restaurants

  • Bathe in a big boy bath

  • Eat foods with his hands (although bananas have been a bit too slipery for him)

  • Chow down with the best of them (the boy can eat!)

  • Manoovure his way under the furniture (his favorite places to roll these days)

  • Put his arms through the sleeves of his shirts and make his legs straight to make it easier for Mommy to put his pants on

  • Say ma ma, ba ba, and other cooing noises (he is very noisy these days!)

  • Bite harder (his 4 top teeth are all coming in at the same time!!)

  • Waive with his hand (very cute)

  • Pull to standing (with a little resistance)

  • Stand while holding on to something

  • Eat solid foods in the car (as was discovered on our trip to Wheaton)

  • Not cry when given 2 shots in the leg (as was demonstrated at his 9 month doctors chekup)
