Getting into everything!

Caiden is now 9 months old and had his 9 month appointment. He is healthy and growing. His current stats are 24.10lbs (94%), 30.25 inches (95%), his head is in the 95%. We are now starting to feed Caiden new foods such as yogurt, avocado, pieces of banana, and cottage cheese. He is still having a hard time eating small chunks of food but he will catch on. His favorite thing right now is plain yogurt, he can't get enough of it!!! But he hates cottage cheese which thus far is the only food he has ever rejected.

Caiden has been crawling for a few months now and has gotten really good at walking along the furniture. He is really starting to discover the house now and gets into a lot of things. I have to admit even though it is a lot of work chasing him around the house I really enjoy to see how fascinated he is with everything. His favorite things to get into are: 1) The DVD player...he loves the buttons. 2) The dishwasher...every time he hears us open it he comes rushing in the kitchen. Since the bottom rack is on wheels he loves to pull it in and out. 3) The bathroom scale and shower curtain. The bathroom scale lights up when you press a button and he loves to tug on the shower curtain. 4) His FAVORITE thing is the laptop. We cant keep it away from him. If one of us is using the laptop Caiden rushes over and tries to press buttons. It is very difficult to use the computer when he is around. We are thinking this is partially our fault. When we were trying to get Caiden to crawl we would put the laptop on the floor to get him to crawl to it and then let him press buttons if he got to it. Maybe not the best idea but it worked! :)

I am currently 31 weeks pregnant and feel pretty good! When I first found out I was pregnant again I was worried it would be difficult to take care of Caiden with my belly. Its amazing how God works things out! It actually hasn't been bad at all. I am smaller then I was with Caiden and am feeling better this time around. It also helps that I have an amazing husband who does so much and helps out in so many ways. We are very excited to meet the new addition to our family in about 9 weeks. We know things will be chaotic at first but we know that it will all work out!

Here are a few pics of Caiden exploring!
