9 Months - Catch Me If You Can

I turned 9 months old on Tuesday. I gave Mom a real challenge in taking my picture. Now that I'm mobile, I don't have time to sit around for picture taking.

On Friday I had my 9 month well-visit. I'm now 28.5" tall and 20 lb 3 oz. Not bad for a guy who came into this world at 19.5", 9 lb. The doctor had to get out the more advanced scale since I'm too wiggley for the little baby one now. Mom was really proud of me for doing so well with my shot. After the doctor, my Friday got much better. We headed over to a playdate with Elianna, Paige, Brendan, and Maura. Then we went to a consignment sale where I got a toy drum and antique toy camera. The camera is the film type - totally old fashioned.

I loathe diaper changes and getting dressed. I just don't have time for it and it is cold. I wiggle, twist, and squirm to get away. I'm often successful. My caretakers need to be fast, creative, and very good performers. I do like some good "This Old Man" while I'm getting clean.

I'm not too fond of my car seat either. I've never been. Why should I be, stuck looking at the back of the seat many times by myself, stuck listening to ancient 80's music?!  Once we get to our destination and the straps are off, I can quickly flip and crawl out on my own.

...fine if I sit still for one moment, can I go back to playing?

Bog Breath

Last week my pumpkin project book was due. I had to do a book report and make a pumpkin look like a character from the book. I chose "Dog Breath." It is about a dog with really stinky breath. They almost got rid of the dog, but she became a hero. She saved her family from some bad guys.

We had an open house on Friday so parents could come see our projects.


Tinker Toys

Big things this week! Trent moved from his toddler bed to a twin bed.

I went to a tinkering day camp and made a wood reindeer. I didn't want to leave when Mom and Dad came to pick me up. We even had a fire. It was fun to toss pine branches on it. It made a cool crackling sound.

Today is my last day of school before break. Yesterday we had our party. Mrs. N went all out! We have stockings, multiple Christmas trees, lights, and she turned our desks into cars on the Polar Express. Mrs. N even works as a part-time elf when she's not teaching. I love hearing her elf stories.


Dog Breath

I really like Nerf. I got to pick out one at Target this weekend for a belated birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy.

I typically cry at hair cuts or demand to wear googles, but tonight I was ok. I didn't cry.

Mommy and I got my pumpkin book project done tonight. I had to make a pumpkin look like a character in a book. We rocked the glue gun. We made the dog's bad breath out of stuffing Betty had pulled out of her dog bed. Creative!
