Landen is 9 months old!

I just got back from Landen's 9 month check-up. I did great until, I had to go to the front desk to schedule the next one--the ONE YEAR check-up. Then, it hit me....HARD. He will be one year old in just 3 short months. Where has the time gone? I could just eat this little man up! He is just a precious, cute, and happy little man! I have decided they count months differently when you're pregnant than for a child's age because I know it was A LOT longer to get 9 months past me when I was pregnant!
At his 9 month check-up, he weighed 21 lbs. He was 28 inches long and his massive head is 18 7/8 inches! He was in the 40th percentile for height, 60th percentile for weight, and off the charts and well past the 95th percentile for his head size. I started quesitoning her on his huge head size--I was worried that maybe something was wrong. She assured me that he was just fine and the only problem would be buying shirts to fit over his head!

At 9 months, he has 5 "words": Momma, Dadda, Bubba, Bye-Bye, and Nana. He loves to clap his hands and say "Yeah" (so I guess that actually makes 6!). He waves and just in the past two weeks he has mastered his crawling skills and goes everywhere. He will get up on all 4's and rock, but when it's time to crawl, he flattens out and does an army crawl with a little bit of a frog-swim. Hey, whatever works! He has figured out how to get up the step into the kitchen, too!

He loves his "puffs" and while I was gone, Daddy even let him have some before dinner! Such stinkers!

My boys both have huge heads. Rob and Drew especially. I can tell you they are all really smart!! Happy 9mo Landen, he is adorable.

We have big headed babies too (both were 25% for height and weight and off the charts with their noggins). I think they're just cuter that way. Your little guy is certainly a charmer!
