9 months!

Drayton turned 9 months Sunday! 

And boy, have we had an explosion of big boy growth.  He for some reason has decided that he now wants to eat and take a bottle.  I guess it just needed to be in his own time!  However, he is still a bit picky and turns his nose up at all homemade food.  At least he is eating.  At least he is eating.

He is still army crawling.  I have a feeling he might walk before he crawls.  He is now pulling up to standing and even is a daredevil and tries to stand up without holding on to anything.

He talks to us all of the time like he knows what he is saying.  And the best thing, other than eating food, is (thanks to some encouragement from Stefany Bowers)  he is now sleeping through the night!  We had to do a little sleep training last week and it worked!  My clock is still messed up and I keep waking up throughout the night, but it isn't because of Drayton! 

He's becoming a little bit of a ham.  When he wakes up from naps now, he often will talk to his stuffed animals and laugh.  Though he is mostly all smiles, don't ever try to take away his shovel.

Drayton had his 9 month appointment Monday.  He was all over the board in percentiles!  He is basically a skinny melon head according to the percentiles (9% weight, 99% head circumference)But she said everything still looks great, other than one big problem.  I am very nervous and not looking forward to this at all.  And I hope Drayton will forgive me one day for posting this on the itnernet.  Unfortunately, due to his excessive "fat pad" (which totally doesn't make sense since he is supposedly skinny) and despite my best efforts, his circumcision has grown up.  So, we are being referred to a urologist in Dallas to get that taken care of.  Ouch!!!  I am not looking forward to that, but it will be better for him in the long run.

I'm just not thinking about that now.  Just enjoying this little stinker.
