Holden turns 9 months!

Oh man. I can't believe Holden is 9 months old already. Where does time go?! Seriously.

Holden is a funny little guy. He's big - obviously. He can't crawl yet - and it doesn't look like that will be happening any time soon. And he has no teeth yet either. His Dr. said that all of these things are just fine. His size is completely proportionate - 95% for height, weight and head circumference (and while you might think that 100% is the top of the chart, they actually stop at 95%. He's as big as big can be.) They also think he will just skip crawling and go right to walking. And we've come to the conclusion that he is currently working on some teeth. (He's been a bit of a pill lately. A lovely, adorable pill - but a pill none the less.)

But...Holden is doing some stuff that I find very impressive, stuff that I don't remember Scarlett doing at this age. Holden is already playing his own little game of Simon Says. It started maybe about a month ago when he would clap if we clapped...but now he does this little "touchdown!!"/hand drop thing, and he'll also shake his head no if we do. It's pretty cute. Observe.

Cute, yeah? I hope so. It's all he's got.

I noticed today that when I said "no" in a silly way (like naaaaaah--that's so silly!), he shook his head. He totally understood what I was saying. He gets cuter and cuter everytime I see him. He makes me so happy that I'm having another boy. I just love those boys.
