Happy 9 months Foster!

Little man is 9 months! How can this be?! 

He is full of personality and spunk! 
 He has learned how to climb and will climb on anything and everything. Nothing can stop him or get in his way.

 He loves to crawl and play under the table. Its like a fort for him. He's almost too tall though!
He has mastered climbing the park nonetheless. He loves climbing them and then we slide down the slides together. If he could do more on the play equipment, he would! He enjoys chasing after Hudson and trying to keep up with him.
The tunnel is his favorite! He will just go back and forth, up and down. It's one thing at the park he can really do on his own. I'll play peek-a-boo with him in the small circle cut out windows, and he just laughs and laughs.
He's pretty much done with pureed foods. I started him with bananas, pears, and puffs, and then once he mastered chewing and swallowing we moved on to other things. And he loves being able to feed himself and choose what he wants to eat. And there's not much he won't eat! He does love fruit the most - pears, apples, and bananas never last long on his tray.
A before and after plate! Bread, roasted sweet potato and carrots, peas, and cottage cheese. The kid can eat!
 One of his favorite "activities" is pulling things off the shelf (and leaving them there of course). Whether it's a box of snacks, or a bucket of markers, if it's within reach, it'll be on the floor!
He's starting to get more "vocal" about what he likes and doesn't like. For instance, one afternoon I was pushing him and Hudson outside on their little car, which he loves, but was not happy when we stopped.
 He enjoys going for walks in the stroller or in my carrier. Just being outside makes him happy. I foresee a wonderful hot summer spent outside all day with these two!
Standing up and playing with Hudson is always a fun time. He's starting to walk around while holding on to things!

He almost always has something just in his mouth...not necessarily chewing on something, just holding it there!

Playing in Gigi's tuber-ware cabinet...again pulling out anything within reach
Playing outside at Gigi and Papa's! It felt like summer and he loved it! We can't wait to have our own big back yard soon!
 First bicycle ride with Papa!! He loved it, of course!

He's starting to talk more. He mumbles and squeals, but no mama or dada yet!

He's finally starting to sleep longer at night. He had been getting up every 3-3.5 hours even at night. But just recently, he's been going 6-7 hours, which has been amazing!

He's still taking 2 naps during the day, but I can see him consolidating those two naps into one by the time he's one! Usually his morning nap is only 25-30 minutes and his afternoon nap is 1-2 hours. Mama needs nap time, too!

He has two bottom teeth already. Maybe more to come soon?!

Happy nine months sweet Foster! We love you so much!!
