Nine months!

In some ways I can not believe Maxwell is already 9months old and at the same time I can't believe he is only 9 months old! John Thomas was made to be a big brother and Maxwell lights up every time he sees him. I love watching them together.
 He started sleeping through the night at 8 months. Yay!!! He goes to bed by 7pm and wakes up around 430/5 eats and goes back to sleep to around 7. Other big milestones - he is crawling on his knees (unless he is in a hurry he drops down to army crawl) he is pulling up on the furniture, he has seven teeth and loves to clap and wave. It is amazing how much I have forgotten little stuff since John Thomas. the first time Maxwell waved his little hand was facing him, just like John Thomas did when he learned to wave. I love getting to re live all these first.
Maxwell would much rather feed himself than be fed. Most of his meals he feeds himself - his favorite foods are blueberries, black beans, puffs and toast. I stopped nursing at nine months just like I did with John Thomas. And Maxwell got his first cold the next week. I have such mom guilt about it. Hopefully it will be our only one since we are coming out of winter and will be getting more fresh air.
At Maxwell's 9 month appointment he was in the 90% in both height and weight. he weighs 22.8lbs and 28.5inches

My sweet first born turned four in January. He is such a caring, kind, funny boy. I am so blessed he is mine. I do believe he posses many qualities of both Tommy and myself but so many that are just him. I am amazed at everything he learns and retains! Everyday when I pick him up from school he can tell me what he learned.  He loves school, playing with friends, playing chase, hide and seek (basically anything that requires running) and card games. He's not as much into arts and crafts or coloring. He is a great big brother. He has so much patience with Maxwell. One day Maxwell kept crying and crying, I told Maxwell you have to stop crying and John Thomas said Mommy he's just a baby he can't help it. So sweet. Thank you, God for these sweet blessing in my life.
