39 Weeks

I know you are officially 9 months old now but it seems so much further away from a year old if I keep thinking in terms of weeks. Today you have officially been alive & well outside my body for as long as you were living in my body. My baby boy you are growing so much every day.
You are now 18 pounds 10 ounces (25%) & 29 inches tall (75%).
Standing up & cruising along the furniture. Clapping with excitement. Trying to wrestle with your brothers even though they just keep pinning you down. Predictably crying each time you are hungry & REALLY tired. You seriously can't get enough of your mama. You crawl around the house after me. Eyeball me each time I walk by when someone else is holding you & give me the best cuddles. You continue to be such a good natured baby. Happy & smiley & just so sweet.

Here are some of the photos I took of you to mark your 39th week of life. First we went outside & tried to get some photos in the grass. At first you were happy. But then when you tried to crawl over to me you discovered that like your brothers you don't like the feel of grass. But you kept trying. And then eventually you tried to eat the grass & that's when it was time to move the photos inside. You loved playing peek a boo under the stool. And then you decided you could crawl to me under it. But your head got a little stuck. And then you figured out how to low crawl underneath after giving me a huge toothy smile!

Very sweet! I can't believe how much older he looks already. We need a play date! Got to make sure their love for each other starts early! Heeheehee. :-)

He looks like a little boy there. I'm sorry, no mama likes to hear that, but it's true. And just in these pictures, all of a sudden. Happy 39 weeks! haa
