Peter: 9 Months...

I am a week late in posting this, darn it.  Peter turned 9 months old on the 17th!  He is getting more and more active, and the things he can do with his brother just multiply daily.  Peter is still as sweet as can be and really goes with the flow.  Here are some stats:

Weighs almost 23 lbs - average for a 13 month old.

Is almost 29 inches long - average for an 11 month old (at this point, Carter was both an inch longer and a pound heavier than Peter). 

Wears anything from 12 month to 18 month clothing.

Drinks about 4 bottles a day (of formula with added rice).  Totaling about 24-28 oz.

Eats everything!  Peter really does love to eat.  If any of us are eating, he wants to as well.  He is almost completely off of baby food.  Right now we still feed him some when it is more convenient, but he loves to eat whatever we are eating.  What a blessing :)

Is still on Zantac and is still spitting up.  I'm hoping we are nearing the end.

Takes 2 good naps a day, ranging from 1 hour to 2.5 hours. And, sometimes there is a third. He goes down for the night around 6:30 and still typically wakes a little before six.

He is in full crawling mode and can get anywhere in a hurry!  He's now pulling up to everything and is so proud.  (At this point, Carter was still 6 months away from walking).

He has four teeth and has yet to bite me (keep your fingers crossed).

He has started to wave, but just to a few people...mainly PaPa, Daddy and Elley.

Loves to be outside, play with Carter, or simply be with anyone who will love him :) 

This month has been a little tough, in terms of health, for both boys.  Over the 4th, they both got a stomach bug, and they are currently fighting strep.  Bless their hearts, it still doesn't stop them :)

Gosh, we have so much to be thankful for!

and for those who question whether they look alike, here's Carter at 9 months:
