He's Never Going To Live This Down

Last week, I was putting away some hair clips that I use for photos with our Guinea Pig, Spice, and Zachary took a lot of interest in them.  He especially liked a little blue flower clip and was playing with it in his hands.  I thought, " We'll just put it in your hair since you like it so much!".  This is how it turned out.

I wasn't sure how he would like it since he's never had anything in his hair, but he didn't even care.

Maybe I should show these to him when he's in high school and get him totally embarrassed.

This is what his hair looked like after I took the clip out.

Zachary's 9 Month Check-Up

Zachary had his 9 month check-up with a doctor on Monday and everything went really well.  He didn't see his regular doctor again because his schedule was all booked up since he came back to work and isn't working as many hours.  The doctor we did see was great and I talked with her about several issues that I will talk about in upcoming posts.

Here are Z's stats:  He is 29.5 inches long (86.45%) and 19 lbs 4 oz (39.43%).  This is why he's starting to fit into 18 month clothes, but they are all baggy on him.

He wasn't feeling his best when I took these pictures yesterday so he looks like he's going to cry in a few of them.  We've just been dealing with colds the past few days at our house.

He loves his Jingle dog!

His shirt says: My Dad Knows Alot, But Mom Knows Better

He was so close to crying in these two because he just didn't feel good.

Sadie's New Dog Bed

Okay, not really, but she thinks it is!  Zach was getting too big for the seat in the Step N' Play and didn't want to use it anymore.  We took the seat out and put it on the floor until we found a place to put it.  Sadie thinks it's all for her and wants to lay in her "new dog bed" every chance she can get,  I guess she will just have to learn the hard way that it's not always going to be there.

My Son Might Be Part Beaver

Zachary has always loved wood.  When he started crawling, it was like a new door opened up to him and every piece of wood in the house was a target for his mouth.  His crib has taken the biggest beating because of this.  He sinks his teeth into the wood and slides his mouth up and down the side.  It's gotten a lot worse since he started standing up on his own.  If he wakes up or doesn't want to sleep, he will scream and chomp down on the wood.  Now, I'm going to make a fleece cover for the sides so it will protect the wood.

This is what happens to a crib when 8 teeth get a hold of it.

You can actually tell which side faces the door because it's the side he almost always chews on when he wants out of the crib.  Door = a magical opening which Mommy or Daddy comes out of to come save him.

9 Month Update

I can't believe that my baby is already 9 months old!  Why does time fly so fast?!  Here's a little about Zachary at 9 months.

He pulls himself up on everything.  From the dog crate to his Step N' Play, nothing is too hard.  He actually likes to stand in front of the dog crate while the dogs are in there and laugh at them.  We're not sure if he does it because he loves the dogs or that he is mocking them for not being able to get out.

His teething has been really bad this month.  The only time he drools is while teething and he's been doing a lot of it!  He had a rash under his mouth last week from all the drool and I had to wipe his chin a lot.  He also chewed on his hands all the time.  All that teething was good though, because he now has 8 teeth!

Speaking of teeth, he loves smiling and showing his teeth off!  He has a super cute smile too!

Don't be fooled by that cute face though, this boy has a bad temper!  He will hit, kick, and bite when he doesn't get what he wants.  I'm going to have my hands full with this kid!
