Braden 4 years. Channing 9 months.

Nine months old ALREADY!!!!

My little man is growing so fast and him and brother just had their check-ups at the doctor!  At 9 months old Braden was 21 lbs 5 1/2 oz, and 29 1/4" tall with a head circumference of 18"....

Braden at 4 years:
Weight - 40 lbs
Height - 3' 3.5"

Channing at 9 months:
Weight - 20 lbs 12 oz (Just right behind brother)
Height - 27.95" (Wow! Much shorter than brother)
Head Circum - 17.2"

Channing is crawling all over the place and is standing up on anything and everything!  He loves to say Bubba, and Dada, and has really started to say Mama just this week really well!  He too takes off like Braden did when he knows he's not supposed to be doing something he shouldn't, but he doesn't really understand the meaning of the word 'No' either, like Braden did, but he does understand me signing the word 'no'.  Channing is super chill and hardly gets upset.  He loves to wrestle his brother, be held, or just play with anything and everything!  He also loves to eat everything in sight!  We had a scare at Walmart the other day when he had been chewing on a piece of plastic wrapper....it was the first time I had really been scared he was really choking and wasn't sure if I could get it out.  A lady who just so happened to be a nurse did not leave my side until we finally got it out! Whew!  Channing definitely does not like being away from me more than Braden ever did.  He is reluctant to go with anyone else at first, but eventually gives in.  We are introducing more and more people food to him and he just loves pizza crust and cherrios.  No teeth for this little one yet.  The doctor says it should be soon.  We can just see it sitting right under the skin!  But, then again we did for brother also and he didn't get any until he was 14 months old.  You love Baby Einstein's and its about the only show I can get you to watch in its entirety.

Well, for now that is it!  We love you more than words can express!  XOXO
