10 Months!

Kael is 10 months now and as busy as busy can get.  He weighs 22 lbs and is going through a growth spurt because his pants are getting short real fast.  Here are some facts about Kael:
He is crawling and is a fast little crawler.  He will pull himself up on furniture (and walls) and walk along them.  He will also get brave and let go and will stand for 10 seconds before he realizes he's standing by himself and then he will hurry and sit down.  He is so ready to walk but isn't brave enough yet.  He would rather walk holding on to our hands.  I think he is going to be a soccer player because he likes to kick his bouncy ball when he walks with us. He recently started to crawl with both his legs straight so his butt is sticking up in the air.  He doesn't do it all the time but it's pretty funny to watch him when he does do it.  He also loves to crawl over and under everything in the house.
He loves to read books and that is the only way I can get him to sit sill for more than a second.  He has two favorite books that he wants me to read over and over again.
He's eating solid foods 3 times a day and loves it.  He is good at feeding himself but still hasn't gotten the pinching down.  He stills gets a bottle in the morning and night and just started to hold the bottle himself.
He hasn't gotten any new teeth besides the two he has on the bottom.
He is in a testing faze and likes to keep doing things that we tell him not too.  He will look at us while he does the things he's not supposed to do with a little smile on his face.  Or when he gets caught he will act innocent. Naughty boy.
He loves to be chased and will giggle and will try to crawl so fast that he ends up on his belly.
He giggles all the time and I love it because he has the cutest little laugh and he is such a chatter box and is constantly "talking" all day long.  He can say mama, dada, baba (bottle) and we are working on doggy which he is starting to get a hang of.  He can also clap and wave and is starting to throw his toy balls.  He has no coordination yet but loves to do it.
He is starting to "dance" but it's just more like squatting and he loves music when it's on the TV.  Anytime anyone starts singing on TV he will stop whatever he is doing and stare at the TV.  Sometimes he will crawl over to it and stand right in front of it.  
He likes to destroy things as boys usually do.  I was at my sister's and I was making a tower with blocks and every time I would Kael would knock them down as fast as he could.
He loves to see himself in a mirror or the camera on my phone and will smile and laugh at himself.
Enough about my boy.  Here are some pictures:
Always crawling with something in his mouth.

This is how he smiles.  So cute!

Loving the mirror

He took this pic of himself with the camera on my phone.

9 Months

I can't believe that he is already 9 months and it freaks me out to think that in 3 months he will be a year. Where did the time go?!  Each day this kid's personality gets bigger and bigger.  He is the funniest kid. Here are some things about Kael:
Not sure how much he weighs but I know it's over 20 lbs.
He is crawling, not army crawling anymore and he is a fast crawler.  He can move so fast around the house.  He's pulling himself up on everything.  He likes to "walk" with us holding his hands and walking with him.  He also is super fast at that too.

He was taught how to climb the stairs by his daddy so before we got the baby gate that's all that he wanted to do and he was very good at it too.  Now we have a baby gate on the stairs and a few other places in our house.
He eats real food three times a day and loves it.  Maybe a little too much because when we are eating in public or at other people's houses he will scream unless you put food in his mouth and sometimes we just aren't fast enough getting it into his mouth.  He is good at feeding himself even though he hasn't gotten the pinching down yet.

He makes the funniest faces and is very chatty.  He has two teeth on the bottom and I think he is getting another one on the bottom.
He LOVES the dogs.  He will crawl in the front room and tease the dogs and will crack himself up.  He will steal Bugsey's toys and play tug of war with him and thinks Bowzer is his jungle gym.  He will climb all over Bowzer and Bowzer is good and will just lay there while sneaking in a "kiss" or two.

We love this kid so much and he keeps us busy because he is such a busy body and never stops moving.
