9 Months

I seriously cannot believe Carter is 9 months old today!  He is still in a size 3 diaper, a size 3 in shoes, and he wears 12-18 month clothing.  He weighs 20 pounds 7 ounces and he is 28 1/2 inches tall.  Two things I forget to mention each month when I blog is Carter LOVES the vacuum and his baths.  Sometimes I hold him with my right arm and vacuum with my left arm and he loves it.  He seriously cannot get enough of the vacuum.  Whenever I take him into his bathroom and start running the water for a bath he starts to squeal and he gets so excited.  He has loved his bath since he was first born, when his belly button was clean and we could submerge him in water.  He is eating baby foods a lot better.  His favorite is anything with applesauce.  I buy these baby foods that have a mix of a fruit and vegetable so that he is getting a little bit of both at each serving.  He loves graduate snacks and any kind of crackers.  We have been introducing him to foods that we are eating and I would say his favorite meal is breakfast, which is my least favorite.  He loves pancakes and waffles and I am happy to get up each morning and make my little man breakfast.  He loves to clap and he still watches Yo Gabba Gabba and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (we think Donald Duck is his favorite because he laughs and smiles every time Donald talks).  Carter has two teeth on the bottom and now we have 3 teeth on top and a 4th one coming in.  Carter is not crawling yet (obviously I hold him too much) but he rolls all over the place and sits up on his own. He is such a happy baby and we are so in love.
