Nine Months Old

Our little guy was 9 months old yesterday. I can't believe it! The last few months have just flown by. I never thought we'd make it to nine months when we had the twins, but with David, it went by in the blink of an eye. Wow.

So, here are just some fun random facts about our sweet David Ray....

  • He started climbing the stairs last week, so we had to put in a gate. He's learned how to slide open the gate (we don't latch it, just slide it behind a rail -- the twins have a hard time latching it).
  • He adores his brother and sister and wants to be wherever they are. He's always messing up their toys, and they don't always like him around. But, they do a great job tolerating him.
  • He has a temper....big temper! He'll get mad about something and hit and bite whatever is closest to him (the table, a toy, the stairs).
  • One top tooth has come in and the second is starting to break through. Oh, and they are BIG teeth (have you seen Daniel's?).

  • He weighs about 19 pounds and is pretty much in the 50th percentile in weight.... a little less in height.
  • He loves to eat whatever you're eating.... forget baby food. I have to really watch what Daddy offers him... chocolate, pizza, guacamole, chips.
  • He's still not sleeping through the night... we decided it's time for some tough love. His new schedule is: he goes to bed around 9:00 and then gets up at 11:30, 3:30 and 6:30.

  • He is still obsessed with tearing paper andthen eating it.
  • He loves to drink out of a cup.... if he sees you drinking from a cup, he'll bug you until you share.
  • He makes these silly sounds all the time. I can't explain it very well, but it's like a wheezing sound when he inhales... it's funny.
  • Yesterday, he got kicked out of Bible Class and the Nursery for screaming and crying. I say "kicked out".... but they really don't kick kids out.... I just got paged to go get him.

  • He loves to take off and chew on socks. I use to go through several pair a day, but now I just don't put socks on him very often.
  • He fights sleep.... we still rock him to sleep. He HATES to go to sleep. If he's not completely out when you lay him down, he pops up in half a second and starts to scream bloody murder. And, he's been sleeping on his tummy since birth. I've rarely seen him asleep on his back.
  • He loves to give Mommy open-mouth-big-wet-kisses and then he bites my lip. My upper lip has a scab on it right now. And, he thinks it's soooo funny!
  • I love his eyebrows.... he's got so much expression in them.

Poor Daniel. His teeth are big (it's a Burrow thing...look at Jennifer's...he-he!!!) but they are also his PERMANENT ones. Just think, the "big teeth" on David now will only be bigger in about 6 years!!! :)

I totally agree about his eyebrows. His expressive eyes are definitely one of my favorite Baby David features!

Love the pictures...he's just too cute!
