Look Who's 9 Months.

My fingers are aching typing those words.

9 months. NINE.

How in the WORLD?!

This baby boy, oh my goodness. He has my heart. And I'm sure if you've read this blog for long, he probably has yours too.

I took C to the Bentonville square yesterday for a little photoshoot. I sometimes wonder if he's going to be one of those pint sized preacher boys... he's just a bit on the charismatic side, wouldn't you say? ;)


He's also got an inquisitive side. Especially for small crunchy objects like leaves and dead insects :)


He's army crawling rather well... and trying really hard to get up on all fours and move. Lord. Help. Me.


So Connor, what else are you up to at 9 months? Well, let's see....
  • you wear 12-18 month and 18 month clothes (officially in the clothes B was in LAST SUMMER)
  • you wear size 4 diapers
  • as of last week, you weigh 21 pounds 10 ounces, are 28.7 inches long and have a head circumference of 18.5 inches.
  • You're FINALLY crawling, albeit army scooting. But you are very effective. Just today I had to pull you out from under the couch :) 
  • You throw on command, and L.O.V.E. it. I'm starting to wonder if we'll have another athlete on our hands :) 
  • You say "mama" and "baba". Not sure the "baba" is actually a name for anything, just babbles. 
  • You still LOVE jumping in your jumperoo. 
  • You have a love hate relationship with Brayden. You love everything he does, especially when he gives you attention. However, you do not like when Brayden wants to wrestle with you, or decides you need to not do something and you get bonked on the head :)
  • You take two naps a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Your naps are generally between 1.5 and 2 hours long.
  • Your favorite food is applesauce. You eat your weight in that stuff. Well, that and little puffs. 
  • You still only have two teefers, but I feel like more are a comin'. You're a droolin' machine!
  • You still have HORRIBLE reflux. HORRIBLE. We change outfits several times a day, and our carpet is officially ruined. We're thickening your bottles with rice cereal to see if that helps. I can't really tell a difference, so I'm just praying that things start changing soon so that I don't have to deal with it much longer. I'm not holding my breath though.


Connor I love you so much and am so proud of you! You are my pride and joy and one of the biggest blessings that God has bestowed on me. Thank you for always smiling-- you bring a smile to my face and remind me that sometimes life just is too short to worry about the little things in life. I love you sweet boy!
