First haircut

This morning, Davis's hair looked very long.  I decided that he needs to look handsome for church tomorrow.  So, we took a trip to Dollar Cuts and got looking handsome!  Here are some pictures of the event:
Looking cute, and loving the little apron, and the fact that he felt so tall in the seat

 And then the scissors and clippers came out.  Not impressed.

 But this is the final result: SO CUTE!!!

9 month stats

Before I forget:
  • Weight: 21.15 pounds--84th percentile
  • Height: 28.5 inches--59th percentile
  • Head circumference: 19.5 inches--94th percentile--FINALLY MEASURABLE IN PERCENTILE!
So we have a pretty average baby, as far as stats go.  But his personality is DEFINITELY not average.

We went to see the pediatrician today, and he had nothing but kind words to say about my parents and grandparents.  He is in Grandma and Grandpa's ward.  He said that Grandpa was the reason he decided to come to Idaho Falls.  Thanks, Grandpa!

Things I want to remember about Davis at 9 months:
  • He is a PEOPLE PERSON.  There is nothing Davis likes more than being around people and "talking" to them.  He makes friends everywhere we go!
  • His grunt.  Hilarious.
  • Davis is NOT really a food person.  As in, in most situations, he could take it or leave it.  I kind of have to remind him to eat.  :)  He likes most fruits and vegetables, and we are starting to introduce meat.  Carrots are bad.  Rice cereal is good, as long as it has applesauce in it.  If not, GROSS!!  Serves me right for having a picky eater.  :)  My parents have no sympathy.  I give him Cheerios at the beginning of every meal, but he has not figured out that they are FOOD that he can eat.
  • Davis is quite proud that he can crawl and sit up on his own.  He can pretty much get anywhere he needs to go, which is quite cool.
  • He is content playing by himself, or playing with us.  Whatever, really.
  • Like I have always said, Davis would be the perfect 2nd child.  One of his favorite things is to have us in his face.  The closer the better.
  • He loves his daddy.  A lot.  I mean, he loves me too, but he is with me all day, so Daddy definitely wins!
    Taking this picture was tricky.  I didn't have my nice camera, because it is being fixed (It is coming home soon!  Hooray!)  I had him sitting on the couch for a brief amount of time, but he kept barreling off.  So, the rest of the photo shoot was done on the floor.

Swimming lessons

Swimming lessons were so much fun!  Davis enjoyed them--mostly for the social aspect.  He didn't care so much about the water, but LOVED seeing the other kids and adults as well!  Here are some pictures that a friend that we made at the pool sent:








We can for sure say that swimming lessons helped Davis be a little more "brave" in the bathtub, which has become one of his favorite past-times lately. 
Oh, how we love this boy!  He is getting to be more and more fun every day!

Summertime!

We are starting to sort of settle down into a summer routine.  Part of the routine is . . . Davis crawling!

We went to the cabin for the weekend, which was blissful and wonderful.  We put Davis in the new baby carrier.  After trying out Timpanogos Cave, Chris said that a new baby carrier was necessary for our future happiness.  So, we loaded up Davis . . .
 And went for a walk around the island . . .
Towards the middle of our walk, he fell asleep . . .
 Fast asleep . . .
 After we got home, he had something to eat, and put a Cheerio in his hair.  It is taking a LOT of practice to help this kid understand that he can feed himself.  Right now, he just partly understands that he can actually pick Cheerios up.  Which is better than what he could do before, which was make them bounce on his high chair.
 And a shot with Mommy--just to prove that I went on this trip too!
