9 Months

I'm starting out this post with some ridiculously cute tub pics.  
You're welcome :) 

Blowing some raspberries 

Clean fingers taste the best
He loves his rubber ducky
Isn't he THE cutest little boy you've ever seen?!  

We head to the Doc on the 8th for his nine month check up, but here are his measurements according to me.

UnOfficial Stats:  (really unofficial)
Height- Giant
Weight- Heavy

"But I'm a friendly giant, Mom!"

This kid is HUGE! He's wearing 18 month clothes.  I had no idea he'd be such a big boy!

But I love every square inch of my little man :)

He's talking and grinning at the same time

There's no doubt we are teething
I'm still breastfeeding.  But he's been more consistent with solids this past month which is good.  I've tried to introduce more foods to him to expand his palate.  His favorites are carrots, sweet potatoes, and blueberries.  He tolerates peas, but I have to mix broccoli with carrots or sweet potatoes for them to make it past those two little chompers.  He likes bananas, but they cause him to be "stopped up" for a while, so we've taken a break from them.
Look close and you'll see two little toofers

He takes at least two naps per day.  Some days I can squeeze out an extra nap from 4-5pm which is great.  He usually goes down for the night between 6-7pm (depending on whether he's had a nap from 4-5pm). It's so nice that he goes down that early because it allows Todd and me time to talk and enjoy dinner together.  He still gets another bottle around 9pm, but then he sleeps until 6-7am.  I'm so thankful he's still sleeping through the night.
New poster for the room!
Other Tidbits:
We have lots of nicknames for this kid.  It's ridiculous. 
My favorite right now is "Little Pootie." 
"You call me what?!"
 He is enjoying lots of books- particularly lift the flap and pop up books.

He likes knocking down stack of anything- laundry, his toys, etc.

Happy 4th of July!
Cuddles with Daddy
He can give "kisses" if you ask.  But you may not want to, because his "kisses" are an open mouth, slobbery tongue mess :)

He likes to shake anything that makes noise.  It's so cute! He gets so excited and looks at you with this big grin.

He still likes his bouncy.
Check out those frog legs.  BTW his hand is about to poke through the leg hole :-)

His obsession with Ruby continues to grow.  He's fascinated by her paws and he tries to grab them anytime she's on the floor with us. He barely gets to touch one before she's realized she's too close and scoots out of his grasp. 
Ruby wants to get a hold of that ball...bad!

"Here Ruby, you can lick my hand."

Overall, he's still a happy and smiley baby.  He gets fussy when he's sleepy, but then again what baby doesn't?

Kaye (Henrik's cousin) was in town for a little over a week and she came over one morning to hang out with us. 

Playing on the carpet
They look deep in conversation :)
  We went to Holiday World with my Dad's company and Henrik did fantastic!  He liked splashing in the baby pool and running through the spray park with Pop Pop. 
Rocking our shades

He's starting to try to crawl.  He gets up on all fours and rocks back and forth.  I'm waiting for the day when he just takes off!  
Henrik in action!
We mainly stay on a quilt on the carpet.  It's our headquarters for the day.  It usually looks like this:
He loves to dump any bucket and then slide the toys around.  
Everything goes in his mouth. Everything! 
Don't ya just love a good tasting smurf?

Just tasted a questionable ribbon :(
 He also thinks it's hilarious when bowls end up on his head.

He loves his Daddy! 

I love this boy more and more each day! 
Hanging out on the carpet.

Can't help myself- his cheeks are too soft :)

Warning: up close and personal this week! 
I spent way too much time trying to snap a picture of his two little toofies.  
That little turkey kept sticking his tongue out. 
Oh well, I still got some pretty cute shots!

Happy Friday from the cutest Little Mister!

After Bath Chat


Here are my two favorites enjoying a little chat after the bath tonight. 

It's super sweet and I love it.  
I've watched it on my phone like a ca-jillion times.

We had Todd for the whole 3 day weekend.  
It was awesome, fantastic, wonderful, stupendous...I could go on :) 
This no more MBA school thing is going to be glorious!
He's one lucky boy to have such a great Daddy!

Picture out-takes

He would not leave Moosey alone!

Then he decided that Moosey looked better on the floor.

Cheshire cat grin

"Moosey, I don't want to share the spotlight with you!"

"Muuuuch better!"

8 Months

My sweet and happy boy turns 8 months old today!

UnOfficial Stats:
Height: approx 29 inches
Weight: 22 lbs
Crazy post nap hair

Henrik's still eating well and growing like a weed.  He's still eating pureed veggies once a day.  I've not introduced any fruit to him so far, but he likes peas, carrots, and sweet potatoes. We have zero teeth, but I know they are coming...He is chewing on everything and everyone :)
Sweet cheeks :)

This month has gone really well in the sleeping department.  We had a week or so where we got off our schedule and he had some rough nights, but overall he's napping at least 2 long naps a day (1.5-2 hours) and one mini nap around 4pm most days.
I see you!
 He's now a belly sleeper and hasn't slept on his back since Todd got home from France (June 8th).  He looks so big in his crib now that he sleeps on his belly.

Swinging buddies
Other Tidbits:
He's still exploring the world on his tummy, but not crawling yet.

He can sit up pretty well when someone is sitting behind him.  However, he will topple over to his left or right when he reaches for a book or toy.

He still prefers books with pictures of real babies in them.

He still is enamored with Ruby and giggles whenever she runs around the living room.

He's wearing 12-18 month clothes now.  Yes, he's a hoss cat!
"What? I look good!"
Todd told me it was time to go a size up in clothes when his onesies became deep V-necks :)

"Dadda" is a word often heard in our house now.  There have been a couple sporadic "Mammammamma" but not as many as "Dadda."

Speaking of  "Dadda," Henrik lights up when Todd is around.  He giggles, he kicks, he squeals.  I get so excited thinking about how their relationship will change and develop over the years.

He loves the bounce-a-roo

I am not allowed to trim his nails anymore.  Let's just say I've drawn blood too many times.  I've asked told the nail-biter in our house to bite his nails down instead of clipping them.

 Henrik is a happy baby.  He smiles and grins all the time which I am so thankful for!
