Banks- 9 months

I say it every month, and this month is NO different!  Where has the time gone?  We now have a 9 month old.  Or, as my brother said, a child that is 3/4 of the way to being ONE! I just cannot believe it!
Banks weighs 18 pounds 8 ounces and is 27 3/4 inches long.
He is now is size 3 diapers and is wearing 6-9 month clothing typically.  He has a few outfits that are 12 month, but is mostly wearing 9 month clothes.
He now has 4 teeth (and is working on two more as I type this).  He got the third on August 18th and the 4th a week later, on the 25th.
He loves pretty much every food we give him.  Seriously.  Banana peppers? Sure.  Raw onion? Of course! Tomato? Why not! The kid loves his food, but does not like to swallow it.  We are still working on that! :)
Banks still loves bath time so much.  Since he is pulling up and into everything now, I bought a laundry basket for him to sit in when in the bathtub.  This keeps his toys within a reachable distance for him, as well as keeps him contained from standing and falling.  It has really worked out quite well!
Banks continues to love daycare and never really minds when I have to leave him.  For that, I am thankful.  I know some moms who think it is precious (and sometimes, it is) when the child only wants them holding them.  But it is SO nice that Banks will literally let anyone hold him, keep him, etc.  He is just such a happy child and seldom lets anything or anyone bother him.  Ahhh... I think I'll keep him! :)
This month, we traveled to Kennett THREE (yes, three) weekends in a row.  Once for a wedding, and twice for wedding showers.  We also got his 9 month pictures taken while there.  As much as I love Kennett and visiting my family, I am aching for a weekend at home with my boys.  One day....
We are loving every minute of life with our little man and can't wait to see what month #9 has in store for us all!
