10 Months

From crawling to cruising....just like that!

The same week Bradley learned to crawl, he also started pulling himself to standing, mainly in his crib. It took him about a week of standing up on things, to start walking while holding on, or "cruising". Needless to say, baby-proofing hit a whole new level once this happened. We had to nail things to the wall, and remove and furniture that would topple on him.

He loves to stand and has really taking off with walking. He has a grocery cart that he will push around the house. He has learned that really anything can be used to help him walk around, and he's even started pushing on his toy table hard enough to get it to move. This kid is on the go.

At his last Dr. appointment he was 97% in height, and 30% in weight. We moved him up into 4 diapers, but they are a little big so we moved him back down into 3's for now. I now it won't be long until we make the switch for good.

I know there are way too many pictures in this post but I swear, he's just so gosh darn cute I can't stand it. lol. Here he is in his toy house downstairs. He LOVES anything with a steering wheel.
If we say, "Go night night on the blanket" this is what he does. So cute.

He is still always trying to get the dogs to play with him.

Showing off his new toy table.

Muscle man. Mr. Drool Bucket

Pretty proud of himself.

Ah, melt my heart.

This kid could watch the trees blow in the wind for hours. As soon as we step outside he points to the trees and wants to touch them. Each one of them....


Another favorite spot for B. Playing with the gate.

Helping Daddy put together the new wagon.

Pretty excited about his wagon.

Yup, loves it.

So clever, he pulled out each drawer on the way up to use them to stand.

Still trying to figure out how the snack cup works.

Helping clean.

Typing up some e-mails.

Reading time with Dad.

Nothing is more intriguing than the 5 Silly Monkeys

Another top toy...his wooden baseball bats.

The next 4 pics are in series. Watch has he cruises from window to window.

9 Months

9 months old and biggest accomplishment...BRADLEY LEARNED TO CRAWL! He started crawling at 8 1/2 months. Before he officially was moving, he was doing this "push-up" thing that was so cute. He would get to all fours, then pull a knee up like he was going to crawl, then sit on his but. He would do this and go in circles around the floor. But finally he was off. His crawl is so cute. He uses his left knee, and right foot. Hey, whatever works.

This month was all about food. Most of his pictures are in his highchair because he loved it there. He is completely on table food, no purees, and he is loving to experience all the new flavors. He is such a happy baby, especially now that he is on the move.

Happy in my highchair

Before he learned to crawl, this was his favorite seat in the house.

Cute and chubby

Yes, cranky baby gets mom in the pool every time.

Swinging at the park

Proof to the grandparents that yes, he does get cranky even though you don't believe it! lol..poor baby, look at that sad face.

Doing his push-up dance around the kitchen

B's first ice cream.


B's first eggs, and he LOVED them. (p.s. I know your not "supposed to" have eggs until 1 year, but he did fine with them and the Dr. ok-ed it.)

He's LOVING the dogs now the he is on the move and is always wanted to play with them. The dogs however, are not loving him as much.

Such a boy, loves his lego's.

First spaghetti face

NEW TEETH! He has his top 2 teeth as well.
