he's spent as long out as in!

4 months
Teddy is nine months old and has changed so much in the past few months it's insane!  I look at his pictures from our four month family photos and he looks so babyish and round.  He's stretching out and thinning (what there was to thin) out.  He's 17lbs 5oz and 27 3/4 inches long.  He's in the 50th percentile for head size, 25th for height and 15th for weight.  He's a little guy but he's healthy and happy so that's great!

He's been eating finger foods now that he can feed himself.  I started off introducing new foods to him slowly around 4 months and now that he has about 30 or so foods under his belt, I figure all bets are off and he eats pretty much anything that won't choke him.

He started crawling at 6 months and pretty much just took off.  He started pulling up a few weeks after that and now he cruises along furniture and can stand for a few seconds (only if I let go, he doesn't do it much on his own).  He also does a controlled squat to the ground instead of the plop or the ever-hilarious side split until his butt reaches the ground.

He's started playing "How Big is Teddy?" and about 20% of the time will put his hands over his head.  He started giving us toys and we say and sign, 'thank you,' when he does.  We're working on signs for more, mama, dada, and thank you as well as the D for Uncle D.  (Really, Uncle D is the only one that signs that to him!)

He's a very cheerful baby, who always knows how to smile for a picture and sleeps incredibly well.  In fact, I almost don't want to say it because it might jinx us, but for the past couple of days he's slept in until 9am!  This mama is very appreciative of that!

no smile for this pic though
