It's true! Little O is 9 months old today! Isn't that crazy? He's been outside my belly [almost] as long as he was in it! He's getting so big.
Weight: 17 lbs 1oz
Length: 28 inches
The boy grew 1 and 3/4 inches in a month!! Whoa! He went from the 10th percentile to the 50th! Holy growth spurt, Batman! I had expected him to gain a lot of weight this month because he eats SO much, but I guess all that food went to his height instead. 5th percentile for weight :P
Swimming with Auntie Rachel! See those little teeth? :) He's working on one on top right now!
He's crawling around like crazy, hanging out with Charles, climbing on stuff. He's still doing the army crawl thing, but sometimes he gets up on his knees and rocks. Don't know if he'll ever crawl on his knees or just skip that part.
He's getting pretty good at standing up holding on to something. The child has no fear... he'll hold on with one hand and do something else, hold on with no hands like in this picture... fall over a lot... I think if he wasn't always dancing around he'd be a lot better at standing on his own :P
Oh, and he crawled right out of these pants the other day. Ha!
Orion grew his first bubble beard this week. Exciting stuff! His daddy was very proud.
Orion's friend Eliana was born yesterday! Our friends Geoff and Amy (buddies from college) had their first baby at 8:37 yesterday morning... a beautiful little girl weighing 8lbs 3oz, 20 inches long. We're going up to Michigan to meet her next weekend!!
Well O and I are going over to Heavenly Hand-Me-Downs at church for our daily free shopping trip :P We have a cookout tonight, a meeting about youth group tomorrow, then my parents are coming for a couple days, then fun stuff at church Sunday... whew! Have a great weekend :)
