With Jude’s first birthday right around the corner (two weeks from yesterday to be exact), I thought I’d spend some time catching up on his monthly posts! Back on January 5th he turned nine months old! I think this is one of my all-time favorite photos of him…he really is that happy and smiley! And just look at those pudgy little hands and fingers!! Okay, I’ll stop gushing for now and move on. At his nine month appointment he weighed in at 20 pounds and 11 ounces and was 28 1/2 inches long with a head circumference of 17 3/4 cm.
One of his favorite outside activities is racing around in the red car! This is one of my favorite memories of Ben in this same car! The car is a favorite among all of the kids when they come over and play…it doesn’t matter how young or old they are! A typical afternoon in the cul-de-sac…pushing Jude in the car while chasing after Ben in his Jeep. Jude squeals with excitement the entire time…it’s super cute (and quite the work-out for me!!)!
Another favorite at this month…playing in the grass!! When I took these pictures in January some of the grass was still brown from the tiny bit of cold weather we received during the winter months. Jude had a grand time grabbing handfuls of it and throwing it everywhere. And I mean everywhere. By the time we were done playing outside, it was all over him…in his hair and on his clothes (and inside his clothes too)!! Oh, and the kid has never met a ball he didn’t like. Playing “catch” and rolling the ball back and forth is another favorite pastime!
Here’s one of my favorite videos from this particular month. It’s of Jude enjoying one of his favorite times of the day…snack time! As you’ll see in the video he’s munching on a Mum Mum and demonstrating two skills that he really seemed to master during Month 9…clapping and shaking his head! Enjoy!
Jude at Months 10 and 11 coming soon!!
