9 Months Old!!

Another month has flown by and sweet Walker is now 9 months old!  He had his well check last week and we still have our short, chubby little guy.

9 month stats:
21.5 lbs---78%
27 5/8 in--22%

He had a good check up and will not go back until he is 1!  Cannot believe he is getting close to his first birthday already!!

Walker is still in 6-9 and 6-12 month clothes, size 4 diapers, and he still sleeps and eats like a champ.  He is doing great with food and can now feed himself puffs and he loves Mum Mum crackers.  I just started feeding him peas to try and get him more used to feeding himself and eating real food instead of baby food.  I am going to slowly continue introducing him to more food so we don't have to use as much baby food now that he has 2 teeth and is doing well eating.

He had not figured out how to crawl yet.  He rocks back and forth and will move one knee forward then he just throws his whole body forward to get to what he wants.  He is very mobile without crawling and it is just a matter of time before he figures it out and is really on the move.

Sweet 9 month old

Last week we decided to put Walker in the bath at the same time as Bennett.  We used to bathe Walker in his baby tub then get him out and start a bath for Bennett.  Now that Walker can sit up so well and is bigger we thought it would be more fun for the two of them to get a bath at the same time.  Bennett and Walker both LOVED bath time.  I pulled Walker out the first time and he got so mad.  He screamed for a few minutes, so the next time we kept him in there longer and got them out at the same time.  He still got mad but didn't stay mad too long.  I love seeing them having so much fun playing together!!

First time in the bath like a big boy!

My babies!!

Walker adores Bennett and Bennett adores him right back.  I don't think there is anything better then seeing your kids bond and grow in their relationship as brothers.  I love them both so much and can't get over how fast they are growing up.
