9 Months Old!

I remember when my friend Alysun posted about her daughter, Emmmaleigh, when Emma turned 9 months. It is the only time in life when you are as experience in the outside world as the 'inside' world!

Russell doesn't officially crawl but he gets around. On his tummy, he pushes himself backwards with his arms, and just lately, has pushed himself forward while laying on his back by pushing with his legs. He is standing longer on his legs while holding onto an object but doesn't pull himself up yet.

He has a healthy appetite and eats 4-5 ice-cubed sized meals three times a day. He eats chicken, salmon, brocolli, potatoes with leeks, brussel sprouts, carrots, yams, squash, green beans, peas, kiwi, bananas, apples, pears, and peaches (especially at Emma's house!). If it can be cook and/or pureed, he'll eat it!! We are beginning to work on his pincer movement so he can eat finger foods as well.

Thank-you to everyone who continues to pray for our little boy. We pray daily that someday he will be a godly young man:-)

You are so big, Russell! It was so good to see you and Emma still misses the baby being in the house.
