A 9 month old boy

Our big boy is growing up so fast! Jack celebrated turning 9 months during our vacation, and I can't believe how much he's learned in the last month! Here are just a few of the new things he's accomplished this month:

* cruising the furniture, including transfering to different pieces of furniture, changing direction, and turning in circles

* getting from a sitting position to his hands and knees

* sitting himself up without anyone's help
* pulling up on people and furniture
* taking a few steps on his own... although now he's decided he's too afraid of falling to do that anymore!
* FINALLY picking up and holding toys securely, transfering from hand to hand, and getting things easily to his mouth (I thought this would never happen!)
* eating some foods by himself (but no cheerios yet)
* eating foods with texture by mashing them
AND... last but not least... he decided to start crawling today! It's at the moment more of a military style crawl, but he's getting where he wants to, and working hard! We're so proud of you, Jack! Stay tuned for crawling pictures and videos. For now, a few then and now photos...
