Caleb – 9 Months

As of today, Caleb is three quarters of a year old. He’ll always be my baby, but he definitely does not seem like an infant anymore. He’s got a mouthful of teeth, he’s on the move, and he’s got a little third-born attitude.

Since it’s been hot many days this month, Caleb has spent a lot of time in the water. He absolutely loves playing in fountains and pools, and he loves his baths. We’ve done a tour of fountains in the area with family and friends, including but not limited to:

Jamison Square:

20160804_135852Caleb started his first baby and me class, and has loved splashing in the water with Mommy and the other babies. He also graduated from the baby bath tub, and is taking baths in the big boy tub. He loves it!

20160825_193640Besides loving the water, Caleb has been enjoying his newfound mobility. He army crawls everywhere. It all started with Auntie Kristy’s blue toenail polish, which inspired him to get moving. Now everything is interesting. He chases the poor kitties, bothers his big brothers, and manages to find cords and fans and small toys which get left around. I’ve had to do a lot of childproofing in the last two weeks! He does it all with so much joy, though.

This month, Caleb has begun to perfect the art of feeding himself. We still feed him some purees at each meal, but he loves eating food on his own. This is quite a messy process. Luckily he has 6 chompers to help him with all of the food. Check out this black berry hand print.

Weight: 21 pounds 12.7 ounces

No immunizations were needed so he was a happy little guy!
