Owen is certainly starting to lose his baby look and starting to become our little boy. He seems to change every day, and we are continually amazed at the little things he picks up. Of course a few of our favorites are cataloged here for you.
We made a trip to the Dr. last week for Owen's 9 month appointment. Owen is now 29 inches long (75 percentile) and 18 lbs 15 oz (25 percentile). We should also note that our little one's head is measuring in the 75 percentile as well. As Luke puts it, he is tall and skinny with a big noggin, but, still cute as ever!
After he started crawling, Owen was pulling himself up on furniture within a week. Now he has absolutely no trouble walking around all of our furniture and pushing his toys, and the occasional pampers box, around the living room. He still doesn't have the courage to take that first step away from the furniture, but he seems pretty close. I am pretty sure he will be walking on his own before we know it, but I am not quite sure if I am ready.
Just this past weekend Grandma Bev taught Owen how to wave bye-bye. It is just so precious. We aren't sure he knows what it means since we ask him to wave bye-bye all the time, but it's still cute.
Lately Owen's favorite thing is to stick his tongue out, and while his tongue is out, well, he just goes ahead and licks anything close at hand. Who knew it would be so important to taste everything in the house before you form an opinion about it. While we are on the slobber subject, I should also mention he also enjoys spitting. It is amazing anything stays dry around here.
