A Little Heaven On Earth

It was nine months ago that I was blessed to have a little slice of heaven here on earth. =) I can't believe my baby is 9 months old! He is growing up so fast and getting so big. He had a doctors appointment today and our new pediatrician (who I think is so great by the way) said that he is looking fantastic. Here are the stats for my little man:
Weight: He weighed in at 20 pounds 12 ounces. I thought he was going to weigh more but I think that he lost a little weight the couple of times he got sick and also since he is moving and crawling around everywhere he is slimming down that way too. He was in the 50 percentile for his weight.
Height: He is 30" long! I guess that is in the 90 percentile for his age. I'm sure his daddy is happy about that and hopes that he will continue to grow and be tall since he wants a basketball player someday. =)
Head Circumference: He was 18" for this one- I guess that is the 60 percentile.
Eating: He is pretty good at eating his fruits and veggies in baby food each day. As far as meats go- he will only eat the turkey rice baby food dinner. I think we may have spoiled him with eating 'big people' food cause he is always wanting to eat some of mine and david's food.
Sleeping: He sleeps through the night all the time now. I love it! When he was first sleeping through the night it was for about 10 hours (which made me not want to put him to bed till 8 since I didn't want to wake up earlier than 6). But now he is sleeping 11-12 hours. Woohoo!
*Madden really likes to take trips to the park.

*He dislikes when mom tries to take pictures of him when he just isn't in the mood (this was his first time wearing his cute new Christmas outfit, but I just couldn't get him to smile- it was nap time).

*He really likes to turn the TV off and on when we're watching it or when David is playing X box.
*He really dislikes not being able to crawl around naked.
*He LOVES to play with his daddy.
*He really likes going with mom or dad to go get the mail in his wagon.

*He really likes playing with his new toys.
*He really dislikes getting dressed.
*Madden loves getting to spend time with his grandparents and aunt's and uncle's.

Well that is pretty much the low down on my little man for now. I am expecting him to start being interested in walking in the next couple of months. And I'm still waiting for him to start saying 'mama' or 'dada'. We love you all!

Madden is a little boy dolly and it looks like you two younguns are having fun playing house! You dont happen to have Gilber peds as your pediatrician? They are seriously the best, so wondering if we have the same ones. Great post!

Yes we do need to do more couple stuff. It is just hard for us with our schedules and all that right now. Hopefully one day we can all just hang out and do nothing else. hahaha!!
