Doctor's Visit Summary:
His visit this morning went well. Everything looked great...except his ears. :( Poor guy has a double ear infection, which is probably why he was running a low-grade fever yesterday and was up screaming the night before last. Sigh. Otherwise, the doctor said he looked good, just on the small end of the range. But, visually he looks nice and healthy, so no worries.
Picture of Baby:
Here is Amos's 9-month picture in the 12-month onesie. He's getting too big!! He has so much personality and continues to be his happy, easy-going self.
And here is a comparison of all three of the boys at nine months, just for fun. Ethan and Noah were still significantly bigger at this point (Ethan was 28.5 inches long and weighed 18 lbs 1 oz and Noah was 28 inches long and weighed 18 lbs 8 oz). He's still a good mix of the two. Not as crazy as Ethan, but not as serious as Noah was at that age. ;)
Accomplishments this Month:

- Using a sippy cup for water
|I love these animated gifs! Haha!|
He has mostly given up his "army crawl" now for a "true" crawl. When he wants to go really fast, though, he still drags himself. He is really quick at it, so I guess that's why! ;) He has also started pulling himself up on furniture and walking around, hanging on to some of it. It didn't take him long to figure out the crib either, so that was quickly lowered! He loves this new standing position, as he can reach, and help himself to, all of the toys his brothers have been trying to keep away from him! Haha!
Amos is definitely saying "mom-mom" now. It usually happens when he is hungry at the table and wants me to give him food! Haha! He also says it a lot when he is tired and ready to sleep.
I finally gave him a sippy cup to try out. He is able to get some water out of it, but for now, prefers to use it as a teething toy. Sigh. I probably waited a bit too long on this one, but hopefully he'll get the hang of it soon!
New Foods tried this Month:
