Our Nine Month Old

Ansel turned 9 months Wednesday and had his doctor check up yesterday. He weighed 15 lbs. 7 oz. and is now 26 inches long.

He also decided to roll from his back to tummy earlier this week and is having fun with his new found ability to move more. He used to practice by grasping one of our fingers to help him roll off of his back. Then, when he started to do it on his own, we caught him grabbing on to his own finger in order to make the move!

Check out my new ride!

There's more than one way to use this thing!

They even sleep the same!

*P.S. Happy Birthday tomorrow Daddy!

Rolling over

Ansel has officially found out how to escape his dreaded tummy time. Sunday he started rolling over (from tummy to back). Now ANY time he gets put on his tummy, he pushes up, then throws his head back (he can get some pretty good momentum into that head throw!) and rolls over. I don't think he has the same incentive to learn how to roll the other way yet. It's fun watching him try to figure things out.

He's also progressed with cameras. It used to be that he'd be smiling and then, upon seeing a camera, he'd stop and stare at it. Now he can be crying pretty hard, but as soon as he sees the camera he flashes that adorable grin.

He's tried a few baby food veggies.. sweet potatoes, green beans, etc. but he's still not into the whole idea of spoons and doesn't eat more than a few spoonfuls at a time. He does, however, LOVE to drink water from a glass. He gets excited to watch the glass fill up with ice and water from the fridge door, and once it's done he reaches for it and wants to keep drinking it for awhile.

Enjoying bath time

I got you Daddy!

Balancing act

Where's Ansel?
