Turner Jack - 9 Months

9 months, that number means a lot to me. I feel like 9 months equals 1 year, but I'm just associating that with pregnancy.  So, I'm glad I have a few more months before Turner turns the big ONE.  

Mr. T

- LOVES food! The day his school started feeding him solids, he was officially done with baby food.  His teachers told us they have to feed him first because he gets super angry and throws a fit if they feed another baby before him. Yes, we've raised a monster. He'll eat about anything, his 8 teeth can definitely chomp down.

- 5% weight, 50% height, 55% head circumference

- Pulls himself up on anything and everything.  He especially loves the trash can : ) He is also in the stage of bear crawling.

- Has 8 teeth (4 on top, 4 on bottom). This boy has been teething non stop. So much that he got in trouble at school the other day for biting another baby on the check.  Yep, left teeth marks.  They wrote up an "Official Incident Report" for it.

- Must be going through a growth spurt because his sleep has gotten progressively worse this past month.  He's been waking up at least twice a night.  Usually around 12/1am and 4/5am.  Thankfully, Alex and I split the shifts so we're not completely dead in the morning. 

- Has become very curious.  He loves to explore every room in the house, especially the kitchen and bathroom.  He also loves outlets, yay for me.

- Is fascinated with his cousins.  Every time my nieces come around he has a huge smile on his face, and he can't take his eyes off whatever they are doing.  I love hearing him baby talk to them.

We have been having so much fun with Turner as he experiences and discovers new things in life.  His curiosity is the cutest thing, and his smile and laugh make rough days at work fade away.
