Leo // 9 Months

March 8, 2016


Leo is 9 months old today! He’s such a sweet boy and I just LOVE to cuddle the bejeezus out of him! He is pretty much the best. I am so thankful for him every day. I love you so much Leo!

He’s 29 inches long (85%), weighs 20 lbs 14.5oz (72%), and his head is 18.5 in (94%). Still a big happy boy!

This month was big for him! He started crawling! Yay!! He woke up from a nap one day and BOOM. Took off. And now he is ALL OVER THE PLACE. He gets into everything now! But it’s fun to see him get adventurous :)
Leo9months-3 His personality has really come out this month! He went from pretty quiet to BABBLE BABBLE BABBLE. I am pretty sure we have another Ivy on our hands… NON-STOP TALKING. EEEK! The babble is adorable though. His favorite is DA DA DA DA DA DA. All day :) So cute.


He also REALLY thinks he’s funny now, it’s pretty hysterical. While trying to change his diaper, he thinks it’s a funny game to try to flip over onto his tummy so that I can’t change it. He does this REPEATEDLY and laughs and laughs as I say “LEEEEOOO!!” and flip him back over. It’s pretty funny. He also loves to boom on his chest over and over, it’s so funny. Like a gorilla!

He’s really loving food. My gaaawd this boy can eat! He INHALES mac-n-cheese! That’s his favorite. He also loves toast, cheese, cheerios, steak, yogurt, goldfish, and sausage. He could eat yogurt ALL day long. Loves it.Leo9months-12And now he’s sleeping through the night, yaaaaay! He was only getting up once around 4 or 5am to nurse then back to sleep. But now he’s a straight 12 hours! 7pm-7am! YAY! Happy Mama around here :)

And here are my favorite shots of Leo this month. So cute!


Can’t forget about sissy Ivy! He likes to get into all of her books and rummage through anything of hers :) She loves to say “NO LEEEEOOOO!!” And I’m seeing many sibling quarrels in our future :) Regardless! He absolutely lights up when she’s around and loves to watch her every move. He tries to be silly to make her laugh and it’s the funniest thing ever. Love this sibling thing. So awesome :)
