Cole: 9 months

And then, just like that, you were 9 months.  Only three little months until you are one year old.  You constantly amaze us these days, with how quickly you are becoming a little boy and less a baby with each and every day.  Please stay little just a bit longer Cole.

But, based on your stats and the strength you have, I doubt that will happen.  

Weight: 29 lb., 6 oz. (100%) 
Height: 2 ft., 6 in. (98%)

Yow-wee!  My little chunk-a-monk be a-growin' and a BIG boy! 

Here are a few other fun little facts about our little:
  • As I have mentioned before, we have a crawler!  But his new thing: the bear crawl.  He likes to get up on all fours and walk around the house.  I mean really, a standard crawl is something an 8 month old does, not a 9 month old.  Silly boy.
  • Still no teeth... and really, not that much drool.  Maybe we'll have to invest in some baby dentures.
  • He is able to pick up food off of his tray and feed himself now.  
  • Cole is a very content little guy; one little toy can hold his interest for a long time.
  • He says the word "Mama."  Not "ma ma ma ma ma ma..." Not "ma."  But "mama."  Better yet?  He will say it and look at me with the sweetest little smile.  Melts my heart every time.
  • Cole already wants to do every little thing his big brother does.  That heart I mentioned in the bullet above?  Yeah, re-melted. 
  • Cole is a water baby.  Although I have mentioned his love for bath time before, he loves to splash around in the tub each night before bed.  Definitely one of his favorites.
  • Apparently, our little is a big sports buff.  He likes to sit around with his daddy and catch-up on the sports highlights of the day.
  • He has a love/hate relationship with his stroller.  We're working on it.
  • Because he is a crawler, he can pull himself up into a sitting position... and a standing position pretty quickly.  I think lots of tumbles and possibly cruising could be in our near (but hopefully distant) future.
