Already NINE months!

It is the most amazing feeling to have a child that you love unconditionally. God has blessed us with the most lovable son. If you come around him, he will make you either smile or laugh. James is nine months now and each day is a new adventure to him. He is still off the chart in weight (below 5th percentile), but our doctor says he is just burning an incredible amount of calories. Hopefully mommy is burning calories too, chasing him around everywhere!

9 months
15 lbs 13 oz

Each day, James looks more and more like a BIG boy!

He still loves getting plenty of attention :)

One day I made ground beef for him and he loved it! Not sure what happened, but now he will only eat beef from a jar. Oh well, at least he is getting his iron.

James loves to watch Kramer outside.

We can't wait until it gets warmer so that James can actually go play outside too!

He is standing EVERYWHERE now. Notice there is nothing but toys on the coffee table. :)

His new favorite thing to do is to climb the stairs. He can get up them pretty fast now (of course with mommy right behind him). We have recently put up a baby gate at the bottom.

And yes! He has finally found the toilet paper. I caught him in the act one day, and he was having the time of his life with his new found toy. Needless to say, the bathroom doors stay closed now.


  1. He's so precious!! I'm so glad you are both loving life together and to see you are enjoying each step of life!

  2. Mandy, I loved having him at my house last weekend. He is a doll! Aren't little boys just the best? So happy for you and Justin and your sweet family.
