The Big Oh Nine

I can NOT believe Xander has been alive just as long as I have been pregnant... Definately didnt go by as tediously! (Something I think is completely unfair.) but he's been a joy nonetheless. He is still doing his army crawl, has 2 bottom teeth that are slowly coming in, and now uses furniture to pull himself up into a standing position. He has yet to master getting back down though. :) Overall, he is SUCH a happy boy- He is really really chill.. I couldnt have asked for an easier first child. I hope this doesnt ruin me for any additional children though! One thing that kind of concerns me is that everyone says Xander is "So tiny!" I went to the park the other day and there were 4 other baby boys there, all about 4 months old and Xander was smaller than them all!! UH OH! He's gonna be a shrimp!! Skinny as his mom and Short as his dad! Oh boy... Xander might curse us later on because of that! haha... Oh well, at this point I am enjoying not having to lug around a heavier baby. I'm sure he'll have a growth spurt somewhere along the line...

I wouldn't worry about his size. He looks like he is bigger than Avery, she is about 15lbs and 10 months old!!!! But she is healthy, just little. Autumn was a serious chubster and she is little now! So you can't tell what they will be like!

He is one cute little kid. It's so fun when they become mobile, huh? If he's healthy then no worries! He could have a growth spurt at any time. Jason was short until he was a junior in high school.

So yeah, took Noah in for his 4 month shots today and he was 15.2lbs. They say that's in the 50-75% range. It is crazy that Noah weighs the same as Xander and they're 5 months apart, but I was thinking Noah was just big.

He's a doll! I bet the last nine months have been so fun for you!
