9 Month Birthday!

It has taken me awhile to get this posted (our computer broke!), but Tyler turned 9 months old on February 25th. I always love this milestone because it signifies when he has been out in the world longer than he was in the womb. He has grown so much this last month. He is very mobile now and even pulls himself to stand. He loves to push cars around (surprise, surprise). He loves to play with Abraham and it is so fun for me to watch them actually begin to play together. Abraham can make him laugh so hard and they are just the best brothers. Since his tubes were put in he is also sitting up really well and babbling quite a bit. He is sleeping most nights from 7 PM until 5:30 - 6:30 AM, which has been so wonderful. He had his 9 month appointment yesterday and we were surprised to learn he had gained less than a pound since his 6 month appointment, moving him from 95% to about 75% for weight. We were happy to hear that his head was actually on the charts now, at 97%! He also has now grown in his top front teeth. It is so adorable to see those little nubby teeth when he smiles!We are in the process of weaning Tyler to a bottle, and it has gone fairly well. He is only nursing once a day now and is drinking bottles that are half pumped milk and half formula. He is becoming such a big boy and we just love him to death.


Abraham wanted to show off his new haircut. I finally just took the buzzers to him and made it really short.

Love the hair cut! I need to learn how to actually cut a boys hair, b/c mine don't look half that great!

He may look like Ken when he was a baby but I sure do see you in his eyes. Such cute babies. Can't wait for the end of April.

I agree with mom, you know that picture mom has of our family when you were about as old as Tyler and you are sitting on mom's lap? I think the first picture of Tyler looks just like that! I too can't believe how old he is. What a doll! My boys are all in desperate need hair cuts. Some day....

It's so fun that Todd and Tyler are so close. Your updates sound exactly like Todd's. Not gaining as much weight (which is sad to me), he's slimming way down too with the crawling. And the big head too. My kids have big noggins. I'm glad all is well.

The kids are looking sharp...especially the short haircut.

What a cutie patootie! Love the faux-hawk!
And Abe is looking mighty honcho with his hip buzz cut (well done mom)!
I could just squeeze their little cheeks!...but I won't.

Those are really cute pictues! I feel like he really has grown up a lot the past month. He is turning into a little boy. I love to hear him babbble and to see those teeth!
Abe's haircut looks really good!

Slimming up, huh?

I love the in & out 9 month birthday. It was always one of my favorites. I'm glad the tubes are working so well.
