Nine months

Benjamin came into our family nine months ago.  He is a joy every day.  He started crawling on August 10, and now gets into everything.  Eloise has not been a fan of this new development.  
 Oh, you want to take my picture? Well, I will just confiscate that camera.  I will grab a handful of your hair, while I am at it, just for good measure.
 B gives big, wet kisses, usually while pulling out locks of my hair.  He has started to pull himself up to a kneeling position.  This increases his reach a lot.  Mr. two chins does not love the camera flash.
 He is thinking about pulling to his feet.  You can see it in his eyes.
 B loves to chew on everything.  He doesn't have any teeth, yet, but he is working on that.  Everything Jared does makes B laugh.  He is one happy, calm baby.
At nine months, B weighs 20 lbs. 3 oz. (50th percentile), and is 27.7 inches tall (40th percentile). He loves to talk, explore, jump, and be in the middle of things.  I am in love with his smile.
