9 Months

Noah is nine months old!
What? Nine months already?

How have we possibly gone from this... this... only nine months?

This guy has grown so much in those nine months, take a look:

Weight: 24 pounds, 7.6 ounces (94%)
Height: 30.5 inches (97%)
Head: 47.5 centimeters (96%)

The doctor used his fancy calculating and predicts he'll be 6' 2". We'll see.

Now that he's on the move, the month was full of exploring and investigating.

Noah has figured out how to use his weight as leverage to open things, even heavy drawers. 'Open and Close' is one of his favorite games.
I don't think it will be as fun when we add 'get into everything you're not supposed to' onto that game. But for now, it's really fun to watch.

This little boy loves books. He's kind of particular about which story he'll sit still for, but he can hang in there for three or four books and just take it all in.

Noah sleeps like a little stink bug with his bum in the air.
Sleeping has been a bit tricky this month, with another tooth coming in and waking up the past few days at 4 a.m. I keep telling him he's not a newborn and to knock it off, but I'm not sure he's listening.

Noah has always been noisy and social, but now seems to have his own baby language, with it's own tone and meter. Based on the sounds he's making I predict 'da da' will come first.

I love this kid.
Is it crazy that I miss him after he's gone to bed for the night? I am admittedly addicted to loving on him and making him smile. Each month of growing and changing is my new favorite.

Oh, and this was a good read.

Do you remember when we were camping and I said that I had to give up reading some blogs and CJane was one of them? Well, thanks to that honestly wonderful link at the bottom of this post, I was connected back with her blog and I am once again hooked. In a good way. :)
And even though I already knew that Noah was one of the cutest babies alive, these great pictures just make him that much cuter.

No. Not weird at all that you miss him after he goes to bed. If it is, then I am weird too:) Jordan and I are always going into the girls' room after they go to sleep just to look at them. We have had some close calls where we have almost woken them up with our oohing and ahhing over them:)
