We celebrated by taking a trip to the doctor's office for his nine month well check where he weighed in at 17lbs, 3 oz. He's 28 inches long and in the 15th percentile for weight, 35th percentile for height and the 70th percentile for his head circumference.
Looks like we have a tall, skinny and smart little guy on our hands.
I'm mixing some of his Easter photos in with this month's pictures. Remi is one active little guy and the photos I took yesterday, didn't turn out the way I would have liked.
Plus, I really like his Easter outfit and wanted to show it off. Isn't he handsome?
We got the go ahead from the Doctor yesterday to start giving him citrus, berries and baked goods. He had an orange for lunch yesterday and like most food items you put in front of him, he loved it. He also loves chicken and strawberries. Strawberries are currently his favorite and I've learned not to even get them out until he's eaten his other food. He tends to get a little crazy when he sees them.
We are so thankful for his healthy appetite.
Remi loves to play with balls. He says "ball" really well and chases them all over the house. If you put him down in the grass in the backyard to play with a ball, he will quickly make his way over to the concrete to play with the ball where it bounces. And then he will follow it all over the patio, scuffing up his little knees.
He's pulling up on furniture and cruising along the couches. He's not standing on his own but he does frequently crouch like the photo above.
After more than a month, his two top teeth are finally breaking through! Phew, it takes this kid forever to get those things in!
Little Remington turned eight months old last weekend, during an on going battle with his upper left tooth.
It's been a week and a half since that tooth first showed up and it's still taking it's sweet time to come in. Poor little guy got a stuffy nose and a fever to go along with it.
He was down and out for a couple of days but now he seems to be back to his cheery self. I forget what a great, easy going, almost always happy baby he is until he's sick. I'm so glad to have my happy guy back.
Remi is more mobile than ever now. He crawls all over our cold tile floor, following us into different rooms and even though he's small, he does a pretty good job keeping up.
(Please ignore all the snot, it was a big part of our lives for a week)
He loves to drop toys on the tile, pick them up and drop them again. I guess he likes the sound. He's started pulling up on things and even playing peek a boo!
We had to lower his crib mattress because he's threatened to make an escape a couple of times.
He's entering into what I remember being a really fun stage and I'm excited to spend these fun spring and summer months with him as he learns new things.
Our sweet little lady turned three on the 9th of this month!
"I'm the tallest girl in the world!"

WHAT SHE WANTS TO BE WHEN SHE GROWS UP: Dinasour
And since it's hard to sum up a growing, ever changing three year old by just naming off their favorite things, here are some pictures of what she's been up to the past couple of months.
About to head out to the trampoline park with Gran and Papa.
Matchers! She asked if we could take a picture. Notice how long her hair is getting and how dead mom looks with out make up.
She's trying to do the little tea cup here, not scratch her butt.
Addy and Remi are slowly becoming little playmates. She will often ask me to put him in the laundry basket which is either a train, plane or rocket ship, saying "there's plenty of room for him."
Patiently waiting for story time to start.
One of her favorite new places is the Explora Children's museum. She can tell you about all of her favorite things there.
Another one of her favorite new things is bread. She loves it! Who knew?
Her naps are starting to get shorter in the afternoon, but sometimes I can get her to snuggle with me for a while and she might just fall back asleep.
She is becoming a little bit more adventurous and outgoing when it comes to playing with friends and sometimes even making new friends.
