Reid is 9 months old and it is so hard to believe that he is almost one year old! At his 9 month check up he weighed in at 18 lbs, 2 oz and was 28 inches long. He is into everything! He enjoys walking holding onto furniture and has even started letting go and standing for a few second before falling on his bottom. He walks forward on his terms while holding onto toys and our hands. He is working on getting his top two front teeth and has had some extra cranky evenings and has been up often at night recently. His favorite game is Peek a boo. He enjoys standing holding onto the Laugh and Learn house and then peeking over the top of it. From the other side i can barely see his little face but he giggles uncontrollably with excitement when i say "peek a boo, where is Reid?" As a result, he usually falls over within a few seconds. Reid recently took to his stuffed owl that my friend, Angela, made him. When we ask: "Reid, where is your owl?", he crawls over go snuggle with his owl. He also shows us that he knows the word "ball" by going after his ball when we ask him. He coos "da da" all day long and will look at Andy when i ask: "Where is dada?". Now here is the unfair part-- he has yet to say Mama and even has the nerve to say Dada while taking nursing breaks! Silly boy! Also, he recently found this lion stuffed animal. I think he likes that it is small enough to hold in his hand while crawling but whenever he wants to take something with him that is too big to hold in his hand, he chomps down on it and carries it in his mouth.
