Milestone Update

I realized its been a really long time since I've posted an update on how the boy is developing, and my oh my has he been changing!  He is definitely keeping us on our toes!

Physical Milestons:  As of 9 months, Greyson weighed 22 lbs 9 oz and was 29.25 inches (both 75th percentile).  Now, he is 10 1/2 months and I'm guessing he weighs around 24 lbs and probably is closer to 30 or 31 inches by now.  He is growing so fast!  He has 7 teeth, 4 on top and 3 below.  I think he's getting another one, just not sure where yet.

New Skills:  waving hi and bye-bye to everyone (even in the stores), saying "words" (mama, dada, dog, and ball), crawling everywhere, pulling himself up with no problem, deliberately putting objects in containers or on shelves, choosing favorite toys and books against other ones, eating finger foods for pretty much every meal, drinking from a straw, and probably tons of other things that I'm forgetting right now.

Likes:  bananas, tomatoes from the garden, playing peek-a-boo, reading books, watching the dog from the window, going swimming, cheese, taking showers, anything that has buttons and lights up, when daddy gets home, playing outside, and just life.  Seriously, he is such a happy, easy baby!  I can't complain!

Dislikes:  being left alone, the snot sucker, being still, waiting too long to eat, and the hot car.

I have to tell you a story about last night.  We decided to eat outside since it was a nice evening and we had grilled some chicken.  Greyson was sitting in his chair and a bird in the neighbor's tree caught his eye.  He stared at it for quite awhile and you could see the wheels turning in his head.  "Look, Greyson, its a bird.  Do you see the bird?"  More wheels turning.  Then he says, "Daw!"  (That means dog).  "No, Greyson, that's a bird.  Not a dog.  A BIRD."  Wheels turning again, still staring at the bird.  "Bir!"  "Yes!  Good job!  A bird!"  "Bir!"  We were so proud.  :)

Tonight we had some fun trying out a new photo prop I got at Goodwill a few weeks ago.  Pretty darn cute, right?
