Owen at 9 months.

Owen was 10 months old yesterday! Time continues to just fly by & I can't believe we're just 2 months away from his 1st birthday!

Here's a run-down of the 9th month of Owen's life...

  • You are busier than ever...you never scoot anymore, but you crawl on all 4s amazingly fast!
  • You pull up on anything & everything constantly. You're starting to let go & stand alone for longer periods of time. Keeping you safe is a full-time job!
  • You do not appreciate being confined to any space. You want to go wherever you want.
  • You learned to open & close your fingers & say "buh-buh". It's precious!
  • You love to play the piano & babble while you play.
  • You can lift the flaps in "Where is Baby's Belly Button". You just love that book!
  • Daddy taught you to call the dawgs on the kick-offs of UGA football games. You pump your arm up & down when he says "sic 'em, woo, woo, woo". It is priceless to watch the two of you doing it!
  • You also say "mamamama" (especially when you are upset), "dada", "dug", & are trying to say something that starts with the sound "tuh". We just haven't translated that one yet!
  • You have 7 teeth- 4 on top & 3 on bottom.
  • You have tried some new snack foods-graham crackers & waffle wheels. You've gotten the hang of biting off small pieces.
  • You are still a good eater, but favor certain foods. Your favorites are breads, cheeses, yogurt, green peas, & all fruits.
  • You tried a few other new foods that you liked- cheese tortellini, peanut butter (yum!), black beans, and cheese toast.
  • Firsts- You celebrated your 1st Halloween dressed as Charlie Brown. We took you to the Waffle House for breakfast one Saturday morning, which you loved, and you also visited the Nashville Zoo for the 1st time!
  • At your 9 1/2 month check-up you weighed 21 lbs. & 14 oz. (80th%-not as much as we'd guessed) & you measured 30 inches long (90th %).
  • You're wearing mostly 12 month clothes now.

Learning how to call the Dawgs!

Being silly with mommy one morning!

Mail for me??? YEAH!

It's been a busy week for Owen with lots of fun firsts...

Last Saturday morning we took Owen for his first Waffle House breakfast. He definitely enjoyed his bites of waffle, toast, eggs, & hash browns (only scattered this time!).
This morning we took Owen to the Nashville Zoo for the 1st time. We had a blast, and were definitely impressed with our local zoo. Owen has no fear-he could hardly wait to pet the Clydsdale horse's head! (P.S. Because I dropped our camera, with the lens out, last week all of these photos were taken with my iPhone camera :-(

In other firsts, after his 9 month check up last week, Dr. Rauth said we could give him his 1st taste of peanut butter. Chris could hardly wait & so on Wednesday he got his first tiny taste. We watched him closely  & had the Benadryl ready to go just in case, but all was well & he loved it! We've given him tiny little tastes again since then.

Loving all of these fun moments with our little man!

 I live for this sweet, sweet smile!

1st Halloween.

Our little Owen celebrated his 1st Halloween dressed as Charlie Brown.

 His costume was a hit with everyone!

We went to the Woodmont Baptist Fall Festival last Sunday all dressed as Peanuts characters (Sally, Linus, & Charlie Brown).

Owen dressed up on Halloween to "help" hand out candy to our trick-or-treaters, although we only had 4.

Owen even got to sample his 1st bite of candy-a couple of nibbles of a 3 Musketeers bar. I think the boy is definitely going to love chocolate!
