9 Months Old

So much is going on with this little guy that I don't know where to begin.  He celebrated his 9 month b-day on the 3rd of this month but we have been so busy & sick again that I am just now getting around to posting this.  I swear that they have both been sick on & off since the beginning of the year & I have to admit I am over the boogers, poop, puke & all of the other yucky things that have made my normally happy & smiley boys very moody & at time down right grumpy!  Knock on wood they are both in good health & spirits at the moment & I am hoping that things stay that way. 

Colton currently has 1 bottom tooth that has come through but has the other bottom & both top teeth about to come through as well.  He has been such a trooper while getting them all in but it has made a mess of his nose & tummy.  He has slowed down on his eating; he still eats 3 meals & has his snacks but eats less at each sitting.  He is still eating mainly 2nd foods but I am beginning to transition in some 3rd foods.

He is still in 12-18 month clothes.  He is weighing in at 20.9 lbs (75%) & is 30 inches long (95%).

He is crawling all over the place & trying to pull up on everything.  It is so crazy to see him crawl because B didn't have any interest in it & skipped straight to walking!  Colton doesn't look where he crawling & that has made for a few bumps & bruises on his little head.

He has found his voice & says "dada".  He has also found his temper & gets very upset when we take the TV remote & phones out of his view or hands if he was quicker than we were to get them off the floor.

Since his tooth popped through he has been drooling less but pooping more; I think the other 3 that aren't far behind are really doing something to his poor little belly.  This belly & teething thing has also been effecting is sleep patterns.  He is back once again to waking up at about 3am; I don't go in because he is just rolling around & crying but never really awake.  Poor little guy does this for about an hour & then is back out until around 5 when he wakes again with a treat for me in his diaper.  I hate this so much for him because he is so tired during the day but won't nap any more or any longer than normal.

He had become an awesome napper & I am hoping that we get back to that very, very soon.  He is napping twice a day for about an hour to an hour & a half each time.  He nap while B sleeps & B sleeps while Colton is awake.  I get time with each individually which is awesome!!

He is wearing a size 3 shoe but hates wearing shoes & socks for the matter.  I put them on his feet about 50 times a day since he takes them off about 49 times.

Colton loves his big brother so much & although B doesn't like to share his toys & I think doesn't like the fact that Colton can now get to them by crawling; Brayden is really sweet to him.  Just the other day B walked over to where Colton was playing & knelled down just to give him a hug & a kiss.  My heart melted & I was so proud of B for being so sweet!!

Colton you are such an amazing sweet little boy & you melt my heart with each & every wrinkled nose smile you flash my way.  You & your brother have no idea just how much you are loved & cherished!!
