Jaxon ~ 9 Months

I seriously cannot believe that Jaxon is another month older! I can't believe that he has been part of our family for 9 months!

He does not like to sit still, so I was only able to get a few pictures of him in his crib for his 9 month pictures!

I sure love this picture of him. He looks so grown up ...

Jordyn was trying to help me out by making faces at him. Ha!

Jaxon ...

... weighs about 25 pounds!

... wears size 4 diapers and mostly 12-month clothes. His pj's are all 18-month.

... has 4 teeth. His bottom two have been in for a while, and his top two just popped through. It seems like there are more on the way though!

... has been ear-infection free for over 2 weeks. Yikes, maybe I shouldn't have typed that - I probably just jinxed us! We were so thankful for clear ears two weeks ago. If they hadn't been clear, they would have scheduled us for another procedure to pull the tubes out.

... still eats about 6 ounces in his bottle every 3-4 hours. However, he doesn't always have a lot of interest in his bottle, so some days he drinks much less. He likes to use a sippy cup for water or a little juice, but he's not very good at it. He's been working at it for a couple of months now, but he really likes to just chew on it.

... hasn't been a great eater lately. He's been pretty hit or miss with food. Some days he wants to feed himself table food, some days he has no interest in it, some days he wants us to feed him baby food, and some days he hates baby food. He does love cheerios, puffs, and yogurt puffs though!

... has a special blanket that he likes to snuggle with.

... does NOT sit still! He is on the move constantly. He can walk around holding onto furniture or by pushing a toy. He doesn't really like the exersaucer or the high chair because he doesn't want to sit still!

... likes to look at books, play outside, and play with any toys that his sisters are playing with. He can sure make them mad!

... loves to pull the girls' hair! We know he doesn't understand how bad it hurts them, but he sure likes to give a good yank and come up with a hand full of hair. He has put the girls in tears many times over it.

... LOVES to swim! He cannot get enough of the swimming pool and he gets very upset when we take him out! He's quite a fish already!

... waves bye-bye. He gets so proud of himself when he does it!

... enjoys breaking towers of blocks that we build for him.

... is growing way too fast! I still can't believe he is 9 months old ... and while he was such a huge surprise to us, he has sure completed our family and we can't imagine our life without him!

Happy 9 Months, Jax!
