9 Months!

Carson is 9 months old and the cutest baby you'll ever meet. 
He is getting more and more social every day. He loves meeting new people and loves getting attention from strangers. On our flights to and from DC last week he kept grabbing the men next to me and smiling at them. He made friends with everyone around us on both flights. I love my happy baby. 

Carson's weighs 21 lb. 6 oz (70%) and is 29 3/4 in. long (90%). I guess it's time to move out of his infant car seat!
He is in 6-12 and 9 month clothes. They are getting pretty tight but it's still cold here in minneapolis and I don't want to buy bigger clothes that he will hardly wear. 

He is sleeping pretty well these days. Usually around 11 hours at night and then two 1-1.5 hour naps at 9:30 and 2:00. I am loving the schedule he is on. 

Carson seems to have picked up after his dad in the picky eater aspect. He is doing 3 purée meals a day and usually loves them. I have tried getting him to eat little bites of food here and there and he hates it.  At this rate he will be on purees until he is 20.  He does like if I give him strips of things to gnaw on (crackers or cooked veggies), but for some reason could care less about little bites of food.

He loves to wave, give slobbery kisses, shake his head "no", and scrunch up his face and spit.

He also got 2 new teeth this month, his two top teeth.  He now has a total of 4 teeth!

Carson can finally army crawl!  He figured this out a few weeks ago and is now getting pretty fast.  He beelines it to all of the "toys" he's not supposed to play with.  He is getting up on his hands and knees a lot but only rocks.  He can't quite figure out how to crawl the normal way yet.  He is into everything!  I miss the days of him laying on his play mat for a half hour because he had nowhere to go.

Here are some pics from the past month for your viewing pleasure.

Loves sleeping with his monkey.

Cheesing it up.

Loves playing/looking/biting his books.  He could do this all day.

Rolling the ball with dad.  He LOVES his soccer ball.

This used to happen a lot.  He would roll right under the coffee table and get stuck.

Pictures with dad and mom.

What we do in Minnesota to try to have fun.  Note the excited expression on Carson's face as he swings.

First time in the front of the grocery cart.

And too much fun for one day.
