Landon is 9 Months Old!

I can't believe it, but Landon is already 9 months old! That means he will be turning 1 in just 3 months! Good grief. I feel like we just brought him home from the hospital...

1st attempt
Much better!
Landon, you are just the sweetest, cuddliest baby ever. People call you a Gerber baby constantly, comment on your pretty blue eyes and chubby cheeks, and have even nicknamed you Mr. Cheeks in the church nursery :) You weighed 20 pounds at 8 months but since being sick are around 19.5? Your check up isn't until next week. You wear 9 month or 6-12 month clothes. You still have some dark hair but the majority of it is blonde, and you are getting more and more of it constantly. You still have just 2 teeth but bite everything and drool a lot.
So big..but I could still just eat you up!

It's hard to believe your sister was this age when she started walking...you are definitely not! You can crawl a few seconds but mostly drag yourself to get around pretty quickly. You can stand holding onto things like the couch but don't do much cruising yet. You still like to stand on your tip toes sometimes but not as much as before. You still love playing in the johnny jump-up, and you adore your big sister. If anyone can make you laugh hard, it's her. You are so happy all the time until evenings, when you start to get tired and clingy to Mommy. You have your own little gibberish language and grunt and yell all the time--all boy. You love playing with toys and do well playing on your own. You love books but get pretty impatient after a few minutes when we read them. You also started clapping today...it's the cutest thing because you "sing" while you do it too.

You are doing great eating, your favorite things are yogurt and sweet fruity "breakfasty" foods, like cinnamon apple oatmeal. We are still working on finger foods but you have had puffs, yogurt melts, cheerios, mum mums, hard boiled egg yolk, and shredded cheese. You LOVE shredded cheese! You are not a fan of veggies or meats. I think your little taste buds are pretty spoiled so Mommy has to mix your greens in with other things.

Here you are laughing at your sister. Such a sweet moment from your sister at about 1:06..."Landon...I love you."
