Blue Eyes

okay, i couldn't resist just one more post! here is a picture of Truman at our family photo shoot yesterday, by the very talented Holly Hyde (


i'm sure no one is surprised by now that i have not blogged in months, so i am not going to make any excuses. i am, however, going to update you a little on what's been going on.

here is my cute Truman, (9 months on that day), dressed in his first Halloween costume, the cutest lion you've ever seen:

a few days later, we had his 9-month check-up and here are his stats + some fun new things he is doing now:
  • 21 pounds, 3 oz (73rd percentile)
  • 30" long (92nd percentile)
  • he has 5 teeth: 3 on top, 2 on bottom
  • he can stand on his own (briefly)
  • he really wants to walk!
  • he loves to carry his toys around in his mouth
  • he loves to giggle
  • he is a wiggle worm!
  • he loves to clap, click his tongue and blow "raspberries"
  • it is so cute when he says "mama mama" constantly
  • he loves cars, remote controls and balls, especially footballs
  • he loves all veggies, doesn't like bananas, and loves cheerios
  • he is a serious flirt and loves all the ladies!
  • i am so absolutely in love with this kid!
