A Most Amazing 9 Months!

Caden is 9 months and 3 days old today. He had his 9 month check up with the doctor today. I wanted to record his stats from the doctor and some other things about him at this age. Each stage goes by so quickly and the last thing I want to do is forget!

Caden @ 9 Months:

*Weighs 17lbs & 10 oz - 8th percentile
*Is 28 inches tall- 38th percentile
*Head has a circum. of 18.25 inches- 78th percentile! haha.
*Wears size 9 months mainly, but can wear some 12 month sizes.
*Sits on his own, but sometimes randomly throws himself backward and bonks his head. :)
*Does the "arms crawl" and always drags his right leg when he does it...pretty dang funny.
*Rolls like a crazy person.
*He is ALWAYS moving. He doesn't like to sit still or to be held. He just wants to be free, especially when I am changing his diaper or clothes...this has been a major challenge lately.
*He LOVES bath time. It definitely relaxes his and he loves to splash in the water.
*He enjoys shopping with me. He just observes everybody and watches all the things roll by.
*Daddy makes him laugh more than anyone. He especially likes it when he makes funny noises.
*He is VERY ticklish.
*He can't get enough of his bottle...this is going to be a tough one to break.
*Likes reading time with mommy. His 2 favorite books are "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" and "I Love You, Goodnight."
*Calms down when I sing "The Ants Go Marching" song.
*Still loves jumping.
*Likes his oatmeal, mangos, and carrots.

As he grows I love to see his personality develop more and more. He is such a character and I am looking forward to each day that I get to spend with him. :)
