Tommy had his 9 month checkup this afternoon and he is a very healthy little boy! He weighs 24 lbs (91%ile) and is 30.5 inches long (97%ile). He had to get a big needle and have blood drawn for lead test, but he didn't even cry. Just watched with mild interest as the nice lab tech took some blood. Lucky kid didn't even have to get his immunization shots today.
At home, he's been babbling a lot lately, saying mama, dada, yaya, and baba. He pulls up on furniture and cruises and LOVES to push around his little 'mail cart' which Mark and I affectionately call "Baby Hugo". (Hugo is a company that makes walkers for adults). He loves Nemo as much as ever and has figured out how to play tug-of-war with him by waving something in front of Nemo's face until he tries to get the object. He also plays peek-a-boo if you give him a big cloth and say, "Tommy, want to play peek-a-boo?" He'll put the cloth over his face and pull it down with a big grin. So as you can see, he's a very happy and healthy little guy.
