9 Month Update

Barron turned 9 months a couple of weeks ago.  It is hard to believe how close we are to him turning one. When we went to the doctors office he measured the biggest yet in the percentiles.  He weighed 25.8 pounds (97%), he was 29 1/4 inches long (95%), and his head size was in the 97%.  It is unbelievable to me how fast they grow their first year.  
Our crawling is still not done on all fours and I really do not think that it will.  He has gotten surprisingly fast in his form.  The best way for me to describe it is he looks like a soldier crawling through a field.  I tried to put a very short video of it on here, but after 2 hours of it down loading I gave up.  If Barron is in the kitchen he is going to go right for Bailey's bowl.  That is what he is doing here:

We are in the process of trying to get him to take a sippy cup.  He likes the apple juice we put in it, he just prefers someone to hold it for him.  He is getting closer all of the time.  Bailey enjoys getting the juice that drops out.

We have also begun giving Barron pretty much anything that is on our plate.  You can give him one small bite and he smacks on it for 10 minutes.  It keeps him busy so Bryan and I get a chance to eat.  
We have always loved bath time but we really love it when we get to do it with our Dad.  (If you are wondering Bryan does have a swimsuit on!)  Dylan loves to watch also.
