9 months old!

Colt is 9 months old and on the move!! He is sooooo busy and wants to explore and see everything he can get his hands on. He really loves pulling himself up onto things: me, Dave, the dresser, couch, chairs, tables..I think you get the idea. He is so much fun to have around and fills our lives with so much joy. I can't imagine what my life was like before Colt!! He likes peek-a-boo and is really starting to find things funny, he thinks it is hilarious when Dave plays really rough with him. I am always telling Dave to be careful but Colt just laughs and laughs, Colt loves his daddy but I am pretty sure the feelings are mutual. The minute Dave gets home from work he takes Colt and they immediately start playing together. I am sure it is the best part of Colt's day....and Dave's too!!
He also had his 9 month check-up, he got his last round of hepatitis B shot and was a champ, no crying for him. This is the second time he has gone in for shots and not cried, it helps that the nurse who does it is so quick and efficient and they let me hold him while he gets them which I think makes a difference. He has slowed down on the growth curve quite a bit since his 6 month check-up though he is still high in percentages. He was 21lbs 2 oz which was a 2lb growth from his 6 month and puts him in the 75% for weight and he was 30 inches which is a 1 inch growth from his 6 month and he is still in the 95% for his height. He is also growing into his head a bit, his head is at the 50% now. I can tell that he is thinning out since he started moving so much but he is still a good size kid!! Still bigger than all his cousins and most other kids his age and even some older than him:)
Colt loves trucks and balls, not neccesarily always in that order, he likes to throw the ball and have us throw it back to him. He loves to make the vroom sound when he is playing with his trucks. He also loves to play with Byson (as you can see from the picture above) they play tug-a-war often as Byson wants Colt's toys more than Colt does! Colt is all boy!!! He is just starting to make the small steps towards cruising around the furniture, once he figures that out walking will not be far behind. We are not in any hurry, the sooner he walks the more busy he will be and then its just going to get that much crazier!! He has the bluest eyes, the only thing anyone ever comments on is how big and blue his eyes are and he loves to smile. He has Dave's smile and I think he is going to have Dave's wicked sense of humor:)
