9 Months

Where has the time gone? I can't believe Ezra has been alive on this earth the same amount of time that I carried him! It is such a strange feeling. Here are a couple of pictures I took of him on his nine month old birthday......

Standing in the kitchen looking like a big boy!

Just after hair cut #9
Ezra's Talents
  • standing and walking (while holding on to things)
  • eating sweet potatoes
  • signing the word "more" (baby sign)
  • saying Mama, Dada, baba,sssss and many other things
  • humming/singing
  • getting into everything!
  • drinking from a straw (On his sippy cup the straw is really hard to use because you have to bite it a little. He has been able to use a regular straw for a while now.)
  • giving kisses
  • smiling

Ryan has GAME!

Sunday night we went to one of our friends homes for dinner. As we were getting out of the car another family pulled up to the house. Their five year old daughter Sally (NAME HAS BEEN CHANGED TO PROTECT THE INNOCENT) said,"Mom who's that?" Mom,"Oh, that's Brother Petersen." Sally said,"WHAT A MAN!!!" Apparently even five year olds can have good taste in men.

I like to move it move it/ HEY don't leave me!!!!

Ezra is EVERYWHERE.....Crawling or walking (while holding on to anything or anyone) whatever gets him where he wants to go......bathroom, toilet (lid must stay down unless in use!), stands at tub (falls hits his head on tub, floor and wall), Bedroom, to the other bathroom to Daddy's razor (door no longer safe to leave open...mental note), closet to the shoes, out of the closet to the bed stand up using the bed get stuck...CRY, Kitchen, cabinets (must buy child locks....mental note #2), to the couch standing, walking, falling on his head....crying AGAIN! One hour down. WHAT next?
Ezra's new fear is being left alone. Let me define alone.....ALONE: walking away from even if only two feet away. Also alone even if one parent walks away leaving the other still in the room. If both parents are in the room both parents MUST say to avoid crying. As you can tell these last couple of weeks have been VERY changing! Ryan actually hopped over the bed one day so Ezra wouldn't see him leave the room.....to avoid said crying. I know this is JUST a phase.....This too shall pass (as my grandma Dorothy used to say). We try to tell him it's ok we're coming back but nothing has worked so far. I feel so bad for him because he gets so worried but at the same time it gets really annoying. I try to tell myself to enjoy this time that he wants hang out with me. Knowing someday he won't want to hang out all day with Mommy and Daddy.
COMING SOON........ Yummy recipes! Get Yours together to share!
