8 and 9 months

Crew Bear is a total hoot. We are loving this age. We were gone for 2.5 weeks visiting Trev's parents in northern Michigan. The weather was very chilly but I do believe that Traverse City is one of the most beautiful places...only in the summer time:) Who knows after Dad C. finishes the little apartment we might be there for a whole month next summer.

So here is Crew's 8 month pictures and his 8th month is a blurr in my head, due to us traveling so you just get pictures no commentary:)

Here is his 9 Month update. He currently weighs 22.5 lbs (73rd percentile) and is 30 inches long (93rd percentile). He has definitely started to slim down. As you can see compared to his 8 month pictures. He also had 8 teeth!!

-he is pulling up on everything and "walking" around the room with furniture assistance and behind his alligator walker, when he pulls up on something he then will take his hands off and stand for a couple seconds on his own
-crawling like a mad man....he only crawls on one knee and bends his other leg up so he uses his other foot...he can get to places much faster this kid
-he says Mama!!!! and he calls Trev Baba, so as you can image Trev is constantly saying Dada
-he is climbing on everything and with me standing behind him he went up all the stairs
-he is very loud, Trev always said he wanted a loud energetic house and boy Crew has totally turned our home into a loud one, he likes to scream because it's fun...but it's not so fun when we are at nice restaurants
-waves and says /b/ for bye bye
-he is eating much better, yogurt for breakfast, a fruit and veggie pouch for lunch, and beans, carrots, peas, cheese, and noodles for dinner and he is still nursing about six times a day
-he loves to read books, I enjoy this time with him so much

As you can tell I have a very difficult time narrowing down my picture choices because oh my goodness he is just so cute and sweet!
