A little Ethan time

I have not been enjoying this cold and snowy weather. I enjoyed it for a day while we were in Central Park.

The only thing that keeps me tolerant of it is that Ethan has been loving it.  We went outside this past weekend to play. I had a hard time getting him to come back inside. But, it was worth it to see this face.

He had such a great time. And I had a great time watching him play and experience snow like this for he first time.

This is what we've been doing while cooped up inside.

Wearing our swim suit in hopes of warmer weather.

This is safe, right?

Our Disney savings jar is ready!

Who's ready for spring!?!?

Happy 9 months, Brady!

Eeeekkkk! He is 9 months old!

While he is still a happy baby, he has been a little crabby these past few days. He has been teething and fighting this weather with a cold/allergies for the last few weeks. It all comes and goes. When is goes, he is super happy. When it comes......

The biggest news this month is that he is mobile. He started crawling a couple of weeks ago (Feb 11.) There's nothing like the chance of playing big brother's squirrel game to get him moving. Ethan thought it was great at first. Once the new wore off he was not happy about having to guard his things.  

Shortly after learning to crawl he realized that he could also pull-up too. Now he pulls up on everything. My favorite game to watch is him pull up to see Ethan and they just sit and laugh at one another. 

He has also learned to clap this month. He loves to it. Ethan thinks he is clapping for him and his shenanigans. We won't tell him any different. He also got his first tooth a few weeks ago! 1 down, 19 to go. 

He still loves to eat. He is quickly moving to mostly table/finger foods. He can put it away. Let's hope that doesn't change as he gets older. 

Yesterday we went in for his 9 month check up. Here are his stats.

Weight: 25.7 pounds (95th percentile)
Height: 29 3/4 inches (90th percentile)
Head: 18 3/4 (95th percentile)

He is a healthy and happy boy. 

Here's a comparison to big brother. 

9 Month Stats:

Weight: 22 lbs 10 oz (81%)
Height: 28.5 inches (60%)
Head Circumference: 47 cm (97%)

A few pictures from the month.

Playing with Grandpa

And Uncle Mike

Playing on the slide. Every time I would slide him down he would squeeze his eyes shut tight.

Lunch at Rosa's

Waiting for the Dr to come in.

Ethan wanted to teach him how to play this game. He was excited when he flipped one over.
Slow down Brady!!!
