Say what?

The other day, Amelia told me, "I want to 'eclect' leaves like on Wow-wubzy." It took me a bit to realize she meant "collect." I told her we'd get a tub for her to put stuff she finds outside in, so she can have a collection of leaves.

Pierson is (already?!?!?) 9 months!!!

We had Pierson's 9-month check up last week. The boy is 18lbs 1oz, 26.5inches. Still in the 2nd %ile for length, 25th for his weight, and of course, his head is still his biggest feature at around the 50th %ile!

He's always on the move, and playing hard! He's got 2 bottom teeth, and I'm pretty sure he's working on the top two as we speak.

He says "Dada" and "Mama", albeit very rarely. He's definitely not the Chatty Cathy that Amelia was at this age. He claps for fun and dances when music is on. He's totally on table foods and eats almost everything we do. He had pureed foods for about 4 weeks, and was ready to move on. He prefers to feed himself, and will often turn away if you try to feed him.

He's growin' so fast!!
