Nine Months

Nine Months
Height: 31 inches
Weight: 22 pounds 5 ounces

Pediatrician comments: Need to check hemoglobin and lead levels in the blood - all part of the routine nine month check-up.

Some other noteworthy things about month eight heading into month nine:

Benjamin does not like baby food. He will eat almost anything that is considered table food, but he refuses to eat baby food. The good news? This makes our lives MUCH easier.

Benjamin is pulling up to stand when he finds ANYTHING solid to pull up on. He tries to move around said solid object but those FEET! They just keep getting in the way! And his legs! They just won't MOVE! It's hilarious to watch.

Anthony loves Benjamin more and more each day. And Benjamin totally lights up when he sees Anthony. Morning, noon, night - these boys want to be together. It's awesome.

Benjamin has five teeth: three upper, two lower. He has a seriously painful bite, too. I have the teeth marks to prove it.

Kind of a "random" comment, but I was just checking out and in their "free backgrounds", they have some with monkeys on them :o) I've never tried using that site, but have seen other blogs who have... Thinking about you and your monkeys :o)
Have a great weekend!

I love that picture! He looks different; is his hair lighter? Or maybe just longer.
