Bed Time

We have been working on establishing a set bed-time routine to encourage Levi to fall asleep earlier and go down easier. We try to read three or four books each night as a part of our routine. This particular night he was exhausted and by the time we finished the first book he was out.

Nine Months

Levi turned nine months old a few days ago... so I thought I would update this blog with a list of new things he can do now that he is a big boy... :-)

- He is walking. He can stand on his own and walks short distances. Yesterday, he walked a few steps, stopped, turned, and walked a few more steps to the couch.

- He says, "Momma" and, "Dada". Usually they are combined with a bunch of other gibberish and babble, but we love it none the less.

- He can count. Ok, just kidding on that one. He's working on it though. :-P

- He eats more foods then I can remember. There was a time when I could list all the things he had ever eaten - that time is now gone. He loves apples and bananas, most vegetables, most other fruits as well, and he's even started to eat cereals, oat meal, rice, pasta, etc, etc...

- He doesn't have a pacifier any more. A week or so ago we decided it was time and we threw all three of them away. (We kept his original one though, for memories sake.) The first night was a little difficult - but not too bad. And now we are in a routine. It's getting easier every day.

- Unfortunately, he still wakes up often during the night - and ends up sleeping with us every single night. We are working on it - and hopefully this weekend we will make some progress on this.

- He STILL has no teeth! We are guessing that he will get several in a single month pretty soon - but who knows.... so far, none though.

Well, that is enough updates for now. Check out the latest pictures and videos from the links on the right - there is one of him taking a few steps - one where he decided to hide his pacifier on us, and some great pictures on picasa of a trip we took to the Buffalo Botanical Gardens. Check em out.
