9 Months

Today you are 9 months!

Life is changing everyday for you and I know you are so anxious to be into everything!  You still haven't mastered the skill of crawling, but you are so close to figuring it out.  You also love to try to pull up on everything.  So far you have made it onto your knees, but before long you'll be running around like a crazy man. 

You've also started to eat big boys lunches and dinner.  Sometimes your school food is better than mommy's food, but I'll work on that!  The big boy food seems to be staying down a lot better than formula and baby food. I'm so happy to see a huge improvement in your acid reflux.

I can't seem to keep up with your growth spurts, but these days you wear size 4 diapers and 18 month clothes.  You are still a really good sleeper, which is where I think you do all your growing.  On the weekends, you go to bed at 8 and you sleep til 9 the next morning.  Then you play for a couple hours and you're back down for a 2 hour nap. 

We have your 9 month check up on Friday, so I'll have to add all your measurements then.  I'm sure you will pass your weight limit for the carseat, which means time for shopping!!!  Daddy and I love you with all our heart and you are the twinkle in our eye.

Lessons from School

The other day Connor came home from school and we were in the middle of dinner when all of a sudden he started blowing raspberries! Matt and I just looked at each other and started hysterically laughing!!! So if you're having a bad day, just play this video and all work worries will go away :)

Pumpkin Patch

This weekend was spent relaxing for the most part.  However, on Sunday we got out of the house and went to the pumpkin patch!  The weather had finally warmed up to 60, thanks to the sun but it was still brisk in the shade.  The patch was filled with big kids and Connor just stares in amazement at them.  And when big kids are running around, it is very difficult to get Connor to pose for a good picture. 

This was before he saw the big kids!

You can obviously tell there were big kids running around behind us...

I think this is how we are going to have to take our family photos from now on! (Side by side)

Doesn't he look like he is up to something??? He was trying to get that piece of straw into his mouth!

So sweet

Matt decided to baracade Connor with pumpkins, which is how Connor is standing up by himself!

This was the pumpkin Connor picked out. He was even wearing his pumpkin bib that Aunt Cece got him, he's always in the spirit!

Too much fresh air = cranky baby!  (He was in bed at 7:45, he was very over tired)

Family and Puppies Galore!

Once again the weekend was full of activities...

On Saturday, the weather was gray and cool so we stayed in. Matt and I cleaned the house while Connor caught up on his sleep. (Either he is going through a growth spurt or he hasn't been napping well at daycare.) Later that evening we went to YaYa's for dinner and saw Reid and Chrissy since they were in town for the weekend.

Look how big he is! He definitely doesn't look like my little baby boy anymore :(

YaYa had this cute spider that had hot pink lights and moved across the floor.  I thought for sure that it would scare Connor, but I was wrong...he loved it!!!

Then on Sunday, Matt had to go to the farm so it left me and Connor to run errands.  Our errands consisted of returning clothes.  Gigi had gotten a shirt for the fall, however it definitely is too small already!  Connor has started wearing mainly 12 mos and 18 mos clothes!!!

We met Gigi and Big Daddy for lunch at Huey's and then headed to Angela's house to see the puppies.  Connor had no idea what he was in for and I have to say that he was pleasantly surprised...there were 9 black lab puppies that were 4 weeks old.  They were absolutely adorable and very tolerate of Connor's "gentle petting". 

This was the "gentle petting" I was talking about!

And then it was nap time!

Matt has recently started to enjoy styling Connor's hair.  This was Sunday night's do! (Don't worry, he doesn't go to school looking like a rockstar)
