And he’s off! Rowen has definitely been on the go more and more each week. Over the last three weeks he has become VERY curious about any room that he’s not currently in. He’s still army scooting, but boy, he sure is fast. We’re having to close doors to the bathrooms, bedrooms, etc. Unfortunately for Kaylor, both of the little ones’ favorite place is her bedroom. Guess she just has all the fun stuff.. hehe About two weeks after he started his scoot, I found him sitting up in his crib when I went to get him after nap time. I thought he was using the crib rails to push himself up, but I finally caught him pushing himself from his belly into sitting up. Yesterday, I went into his room, and the stinker was standing up in his crib, holding onto the rails. Seems like all at once he’s decided to pull out the tricks. I had a little talk w/ him though, and informed him that he is getting to be a big boy way too quickly for mommy’s liking 😉
Here is an iPhone video, seeing him do it for the first time. (Please excuse our bed in the living room, it was the day carpet was being installed in our master.. lol)
Little man had a great 9 month check up too. 18lbs 6.5oz (16th percentile) and 28in (46th percentile) Doesn’t seem like he’s too big of a boy, but healthy & growing.. All we can ask for!
As of today, he’s got four, possibly five teeth coming in. His two, top teeth, the next two outside of those, and maybe one on the bottom. And the best part, is he’s still smiling! (more on why I think that may be in another post)..
