favorite game

myers has a new favorite game he plays. it's called "pull all the wet wipes out of the box". it seems really fun. here's how it works. myers just pulls all the wipes out of the container. i find them a little while later, and they are all dried out. myers laughs as i try to salvage any that are still good and don't have dirt on them. repeat. our solution: we gave him a box of wipe we don't like, and we just let him take these out over and over. is this a good form of discipline?

new face

myers has started making this face all the time. it's so funny. notice he's doing it in one of the nine month pics in the post below.

nine months

we finally had our nine month check-up last week. myers weighed 22 lbs. 6 oz. and was 27 in. long which put him in the 75%ile for weight and height. i can honestly say that he is the best baby. we take him everywhere and he has so much fun. he sleeps about 11 hours at night and takes 2 or 3 naps a day. we are loving every minute with him. he is so funny and cuddly.

some things he is doing now...

he is crawling everywhere and pulling up on everything.

he's walking behind his lion or really anything he can push.

he loves to play with doors. he opens and closes them over and over.

he loves his dog scout.

he can find his dog, book, ball, lion, mama, and dada when you say any of those words

he still loves the bath. he crawls really fast into the bathroom when you say "bathtub boy"

he is eating some tablefood but would prefer baby food.

he is drinking whole milk from a sippy cup.

he loves to give open mouth kisses. it's so sweet.
he has 4 teeth- two on bottome and two on top.

first christmas

we had a very fun christmas. myers got too many new toys. on christmas eve matt, myers and i open gifts. we gave myers a scout dog which i would highly recommend. it costs $15.00 and i think it is "the best bang for your buck" gift of 2009. if you haven't seen him, you plug him up to your computer and personalize him. he will then sing songs with your name, favorite foods, colors, etc. the only problem we have found with him is that he doesn' have the name myers, so he can only spell it, not say it. he can say esperanzo and quita but not myers. don't worry, there is a place to email and request your child's name, so hopefully he will have myers soon. for those of you who have girls, there is a violet dog for them. anyway, after we opened gifts, we went to my mom's house and ate chili. myers got a 4-wheeler, a bat and tee, a riding car, a busy ball popper (i almost typed pooper! ha), and some clothes. it was more fun for me than for myers. in dirty santa, i got a sound machine (which is what i was going for) and matt got cash!!

on christmas day, we woke up and santa had come. he brought some books, bath toys, a toy box and some other little goodies. then we went to "gina's" house and had breakfast and opened gifts. at gina's myers got some clothes, a push and ride lion, a basketball goal, praise baby dvd's, a car, some shoes and many other stocking stuffers. he really had a great christmas. i don't know if there are any toys left for him to get on his birthday.

then we left for the beach on christmas day!! it was so much fun. it was a little cold to go on the beach, but we had fun shopping, eating, lounging, playing phase 10 and wii karaoke and nursing marcus and marianna's stomach virus (which we gave them because we had it the week before...sorry!)

here are some christmas pics.
