9 month check up.
19 pounds, 4 ounces 13th percentile
29 3/4 inches 74th percentile
47 cm 81st percentile.
So, as you can see he is STILL long, skinny with a big head. :)
The 9th month wasn't really an eventful month for milestones. But it was a big month for playing. He found his tounge and loved to kiss the sliding glass door.
I know I know that picture sucks, but it's from my cell phone, so gimmie some credit. He would constantly walk over to the window and just start making out with it. Cutest thing ever!! Daddy finally got to play with his little man on a daily basis as Ryder was becoming more coordinated and independent. He would just sit on the floor and play with his toys all by himself. Very cute, and very nice for mommy!
Also, since he found out that he could stand up, he did it on everything. Including his lazy boy. This is after a fall off the top of the chair.
We brought this lion home from California, one of our friends was nice enough to give it to us. Ryder fell in love with it, the roar and the song it would do got quite annoying after Ryder found out that if he pressed the nose, it made noise.
He learned new things everyday....like how to climb
We also had some surprise visitors. My two best friends from high school! They were on thier way to Texas...reason I'm not sure of. But they broke down about an hour away. So, instead of spending money on a hotel, they came over and stayed the night with us. It was a great time, catching up on old times and just seeing them.
It was such a short visit, so it was very sad to see them go. Ryder loved them as well. I was extremely happy to have been able to see them after so many years!
And now, I leave you with my favorite photo.
