9 months

Owen was the perfect baby today.  He slept all night last night {waking once, but going back to sleep}.  He was happy and content.  He took two naps, each about an hour and a half.  It was doubly special because he hadn't been sleeping the past couple of nights {waking from 2:30 a.m. to almost 5 a.m. one night}, and was equally crabby throughout the day.  But today is his 9 month birthday, and also my birthday {age not included}.  Thank you Owen!

Now, for his stats {I'll check back in with his weight/length after his appointment in a couple of weeks}:  He's got two teeth, can crawl about three paces forward {yet still manages to move enough to cover an entire room!}, he loves blueberries and grilled cheese {toast with shredded cheddar on it}, as well as all his old favorites {oatmeal, pears, squash}, and he's always making, what we call, the "mischief face."   We added Peek-a-Who?  to his favorite books this month. He gives the best hugs, cracks up at his brother, loves babbling, and we're just so happy that he has blessed our lives for the past nine glorious months.  Happy 9 months sweetie pie!

UPDATE {6/17/2011} - Owen had his 9 month check-up today.  He's perfect.  Checks in at 31 inches long, and 20 lbs. 2 oz.  95% for height, about 40% for weight.  Woot!
