Nine Months Old!

I can hardly believe I'm typing these words..Dominic is officially NINE months old! As in..3 months away from being One year old. Time is truly flying by. Dominic is up to all sorts of shenanigans these days:
*He says Mama, Dada, Baba, and kinda sings. It's super cute-he also talks up a storm while in a shopping cart at the store.
*He's scootin' along (as Louie blogged yesterday) and starting to kinda crawl. He's very fast and interested in everything!
*He claps his hands a lot and raises them up to be "Sooooo Big!"
*He can pull himself up onto things. Which is usually to get the remote or a cell phone (two things I refuse to let him play with)
*He's eating three solid meals a day. Oatmeal in the morning, Fruit & Veggie for lunch and Veggie & Meat for dinner. Stage 2.
*He can easily finger feed himself foods.
*His favorite toys seem to be books, blocks and trucks. He drives his trucks all over the walls and then uses them as hand roller skates. haha!
*As of today, he is still without teeth but they are VERY close and he's been tugging at his ears all week. They're a' comin'!
*He loves his puppies and I'm happy to say that TJ & Sadie are very patient & gentile with Dominic. They let him pull at their tails & them around and even give them a few slaps to the head. (I'm trying to teach him to pet nicely)

There's so much more I could write, he changes so much every day! :) I'm looking forward to watching my little guy grow & learn more each day. He's so amazing!! As for the picture, I had planned on using a "beach" theme this month-but he's never worn these cute turtle overalls *If you know me, you KNOW I loooove turtles* and I just think he looks precious in them!
