9 months old

Thomas is 9 months old this week! I can't believe it. I feel like he is turning into a little boy right before my eyes. He has been learning and changing so much lately. Here are a few of the big things our little man has been up to recently:
Thomas LOVES the bath tub. Though he has been splashing like crazy for quite a while now, his new thing is sitting up and playing with bath toys. He gets so excited. When we take him into the bathroom and start undressing him he starts kicking his arms and legs in a splashing motion... he knows what's coming!
Thomas has 6 teeth now! He got his top 4 over the past two weeks. Crazy! They are getting more visible everyday, which is changing his look. It is so funny to see his big grin with teeth in it now! He has been chewing on everything and his nose has been running like a faucet. Hopefully his mouth won't hurt him for much longer. This isn't the best picture, but you can see his top two from this angle when he smiles.
Thomas definitely isn't as attached to his pacifier as Maybrie was. But with all of these new teeth breaking through, he has been wanting it more and more. Also, I've managed to get some cuddle time in lately with him not feeling well... which is a rarity and is something I have been cherishing. Nothing better than cuddling a sweet, chubby sleeping baby.
Thomas is now MOBILE!!! Though he has been moving backward and sideways for a while, he really decided to take off forward today. This morning he crawled halfway across the family room into the kitchen after a scout rope Brian left hanging over a dining chair. I couldn't believe it! And all day he has been moving all over getting into things I thought were far out of his reach. He seems very pleased with himself.
Thomas chewing on his "victory" rope! Can you tell he is pleased that he got it all by himself?! What a cutie!
Thomas is a happy child. He laughs and smiles all the time and is just plain cute. He is a GREAT eater. He loves baby food, any kind. He is now eating solids for breakfast and dinner and he loves his little Gerber Graduates snacks. He goes nuts over them! His hair is totally coming in now, especially in the back and it seems to have a little curl. He also has Brian's cowlick. Thomas is such a joy to have around, we are loving him and having so much fun watching him grow (just going by a little too fast for me... though I am looking forward to a full night of uninterrupted sleep!). We love you baby Thomas!


  1. So adorable! I can't wait to see him crawl! :)

  2. What a little cutie!!!! Oh I just love chubby babies!! Wow, 6 teeth already? Maybe I just forget how fast they come in. There is nothing cuter than an uneven toothy grin!

  3. Love the pic of him crawling! So cute.
