slow and steady wins the race

Connoisseur, Consumer and all around lover of books

 *** update***
Sean is 20 lbs 14 oz and 29 inches long at his 9 month check-up

Sean is now 9 months old... I KNOW!  He is crawling ,pulling to stand and starting to cruise,  he bites (4 teeth), he chews on furniture and devours books... literally...he eats books.  He is absolutely delightful and is a happy easy going baby.  He is curious and into everything. One of his most favorite activities is pulling all the books off the book shelves, tasting each one and in general making as big a mess as possible before Mom swoops in and spoils all his fun by finger swiping all the bits of paper out of his mouth.  Like his older brothers, we are teaching him sign language and he is now signing "all done" appropriately at meal times, especially when I serve green veggies.  He has a fresh row of bruises across his forehead (mostly self inflicted)... he has learned to crawl but not yet how to duck. Sam's  "love 'em hard or leave 'em" approach has taught Sean that sometimes love hurts but as you can see so far Sean's skull is still round and intact so I should count my blessings.  

this picture cracks me up...
