Hayden at 9 1/2 months and a trip to the Museum

Recently, we went to the Children's Museum so Grace could attend a Gift making class. So while she was in class the boys and I got to hang out a bit on our own.
Hayden at 9 1/2 months

We just went to Hayden's 9 month appointment and the doctor says everything looks great!! He only got one shot which was nice. He weighs 19lbs 13oz which puts him between 25%-50% and he was 30 inches long which puts him right at 75% for height. He is slowing down a bit on both scales but the doctor said that can be completely normal for this age. Here are some other fun facts about Hayden.
*He is graduating more and more to table food which is nice because he can eat what we are eating for dinner.
*He recently started dancing. (bouncing up and down on his knees)
*He started doing the "Elvis Look" (see picture below)
*He is starting to verbalize with sounds for the things that he wants like his blanket!
*We have also noticed he loves his blanket and looks for it now!! (this is my third blanket kid)
*He has gotten really fast with crawling and cruising now!
*I have also seen him standing by himself, without holding on to anything, a few times.

He didn't want to be left out of the pillow fight Gene was having with the kids!!
His newest trick!!
"The Elvis Look"
