9 Months Old and Getting Into Everything

LK with his elephant at 9 months old.

LK is now 9 months old.  Wow does time fly.  He is a very proficient crawler and can zoom across a room in no time.  He can also pull himself to standing and cruise along the furniture and walls so nothing is safe from him anymore.  We have strategically placed our coffee table and infant rocker in front of our entertainment unit to try and keep him away from all the fun buttons that there is to push there.  And remotes?  What is it with kids and remotes?  You cannot leave them anywhere below waist high or he will have them in 15 seconds flat.  He likes to grab them, push all the buttons messing the TV, satellite dish, PlayStation, etc. completely up and then bang the remotes violently on the floor so that even if we knew how to fix up the mess he made; we cannot as he has now damaged the remote beyond repair.

At his 9 month check up we discovered that he now weighs 22 lbs and is 29 inches tall.  This is exactly the upper limit on the infant carrier car seat we have.  So I had to purchase a new convertible carseat for him to ride in.  I got the True Fit  for a good price from Zellers and so far we are liking it.  I like that you can adjust the harness height without rethreading it. 

So that's whats new with LK.  He is still breastfeeding 4 times a day and continues to eat more and more solid food.  He sleeps through the night most of the time.  In general he has been a fairly happy, active baby.  He does like a lot of attention though which is making it harder to get everything I want to done but I am enjoying him and trying to learn to be flexible.
