This month there have been a TON of firsts for Cayden. He has been changing soo much and it's so much fun to see him grow. When we were still in California Cayden started to get up to his knees and then his feet in his pack and play but never on any actual furniture. Well the night we stayed at my Aunt and Uncles on our way back to Idaho he pulled himself on their couch(with the help of him wanting to get the remote) Ever since then he is constantly getting up on everything!! Which at first led to him getting hurt alot...and I mean several times a day..here was his first battle wound.... This was by far the worst..luckily..but I am sure we will have many more. He didnt have very good balance which made him fall alot..it happened the day or so after we moved back. He smacked his head on the bottom shelf of where are tv is which is now why we have all of our pillows there....luckily he hasnt gotten hurt since on it. Now Cayden is able to stand easily on anything and everything...weather its the fridge, any wall, couch, table..he will get right up! Sometimes he will just stay on his knees and bounce around. He has pushed off only twice and stayed standing for several seconds so far. He does cruise along the furniture though.
Since we moved Cayden has been using the big boy bathtub which he loves because it gives him alot more play room and he loves his bath toys!
The other day he dumped out his toys to play with the basket they go into..this is soo Cayden!
As you know from the earlier post he his now clapping, and waving...it's really cute because he turns his wrist alot when he waves like the miss america wave. When he turned 8 months he started saying ba ba..and now he says da da but he mixes it alot with ba ba so alot of the time it just sounds like babbling. He also started earlier this month to pick up food very easily and put it in his mouth. Not soo fun when he is on the floor..he finds the tiniest things and puts them in his mouth, there have been times where we caught it too late and have no idea what he ate...even though he couldnt sneak it a couple nights ago..we had just cooked dinner and I picked him up to put him in his highchair and I smelled something really strong and strange on his mouth...turns out he was eating garlic..which explains the face he was makig. I now sweep often =) We have let him try yogart, cottage cheese, cheese, pizza, meat, and lots of different breads...but he pretty much will eat everything and if he sees food he wants it!
Here are some pics I took of him after church(the day after he turned 9 months)
