9 Months of Mack
he certainly keeps me on my toes, especially now that he is so close to walking. he stands pretty well and we expect him to take his first step any day now, which terrifies me. ha ha! he's already so mobile, i don't know how i'll keep up with him when he's even more so.
mack is more of a daddy's boy than ever. if B is around, he wants nothing to do with me...until it's time to eat. for some reason, he won't take a bottle from daddy, only mama, but he eats his solids from daddy just as well as he does for me. i truly appreciate that he loves his daddy so much. B doesn't get nearly as much time with mack as i do, so it's wonderful to see that the time they do have together is such quality time.
mack has added "yeah" to his vocabulary, as well as modifying "da da" to "da-ee". he is also quite the mimicker. whatever combination of sounds we make (as long as we do it repetitively), he'll repeat in his own version. we call him our little mockingbird, which is especially fitting since that is the state bird of texas and no matter what B says about being born in maryland, he is a texan baby.
boy, is this boy growing! he weighs in at a healthy 20lbs and is 29" long. needless to say, my arms ache when i hold him for very long. he has also turned into a little sasquatch. his feet are huge! most of his size 3 shoes are too small now and some never fit him, because his feet are so wide. i do love his squishy, stinky feet, though. :)
this poor kid has been tormented by the camera his entire life, but this last month has been the worst, because of me feeling the need to take advantage of the cooler weather and fall colors. he is such a good sport, though, and is great about looking at the camera when is say "picture!" and click my tongue. (wait, that just sounded like i'm training him like a dog. hmmm...)
anyway, without further ado, here is the fruit of my labor, mack's fall pics...
oh, how i love this boy! (and my new camera - ha ha!)
