Crawling Machine

Sir Rylan is now crawling all over the place!!! He's had quite a few bumps and bruises but he's just making his head stronger! ;)
Just today he started crawling after me. I went to the kitchen to get him a bottle and about 10 seconds later I hear him right behind me. He had the biggest grin on his face. He was so proud of himself.
He loves to pull himself up on furniture. Thankfully only on his knees so far. I'm not ready for him to get up on his feet yet!!! He's growing up too fast. His favorite thing is to pull up on the doorknobs on the entertainment center and chew on them. Haha!

9 month dr's visit

Rylan had his first eye appointment today. Nothing is wrong, the eye dr is part of a free program that checks infant's eyes out. Rylan's are great!!! Yay! He is a little farsighted but I guess that is normal for infants and will decrease over the next couple of years. I just hope that he gets his daddy's eyesight and not mine!!!

Then he had his 9 month checkup. He is still a BIG kid!
Height: 29.5" (90%)
Hear: 18.5cm (75%)
Weight: 26lbs 2oz (Off the charts...100+%)
He is right on track for all his developmental stuff! Yeah! The dr said that he is big enough to be changed to forward-facing in his carseat but said to hold off until he's about 1 to let his neck muscles get stronger. And he can try anything I want to give him except honey. Yeah! I hope to have him eating big people food exclusively very soon. That baby food is yucko smelling and expensive. And I can't wait to get him off formula. That stuff is ridiculously priced!!!

Slide Show!

Happy 4th of July!

I'm sorry that it's taken me so long to post an update. Time goes way too fast!!!
* This picture is his new funny face he makes! He gets excited and squishes it all up and wrinkles his nose. It's hilarious! We have no idea where he picked it up from.

* Rylan will be 9 months old on Saturday!!! It's crazy that he is going to be 9 months already. It still seems like he was born yesterday. He is getting big. He has his checkup on Monday and I'm guessing he'll be a little over 24 pounds and right around 30 ". He is a big boy.

* Rylan is almost crawling. He gets on all fours and now he will pick his hands up and move them but doesn't quite get the legs yet. He tries all the time. He is very good at pushing himself backwards and scooting around. He rolls but not all over the place.

* Rylan is very ready for big people food. He has tried bananas, grapes, carrots, french fries, mashed potatoes and a strawberry shake. He didn't really care for any of them the first time around. We will just have to try again. He does love gerber puffs and gobbles those up like there is no tomorrow.

* Rylan loves the water. He gets in his bath and splashes all over the place. It's pretty cute. We got his froggie pool out the other day and he didn't like it b/c the water was so cold but once it warmed up he liked it. We didn't sit him in it yet. We'll have to wait for a nice warm day with warmer water.

* I quit my job! I now stay home with Rylan and I love it. Of course there are days that I wish I could have a few hours to myself but then I get a smile or a kiss from the little guy and it makes it all worth it. Not sure if I will go back to work anytime soon or just stay home until all our kids are in school. We are just playing it by ear!

I finally uploaded new pics to his photo album! He is soooooooooo cute and still has his big blue eyes!

Have a safe and happy 4th!
