9 months!!

Actually Drake turned 9 months on April 30th. But better late than never!! The last month has been really crazy with us moving from Benton to Conway. We are finally moved in and settled. There have been so many things that have happend in the past month that I want to blog about. I am SOOOO behind!! Hopfully I can get caught up.

Anyway, Drake wants to share some things that he's been up to lately....

Hey guys! It's Drake! I turned 9 months old on April 30th. I have been up to so much lately.

First of all I went to my 9 month check-up the other day and the Dr. said I was perfect! I weighed 21 lbs. 7 oz. and I was 29 inches tall. He told mommy to keep up the good work!

My favorite thing to do nowadays is get into EVERYTHING! I crawl everywhere now and fast! I pull up on tables, chairs, toys, people, etc... Nothing is out of my reach! I WILL find a way to get a hold of what I want. Mommy and daddy have had to take everything off the coffee tables and nightstands so I won't hurt myself. My favorite things to get into are electrical cords, phones & the TV remote. Mommy and daddy won't let me play with any of those things though. I don't understand! They keep telling me this word, "NO" and I'm not sure what that means so I just smile at them and giggle a little bit and that seems to distract them from what I was doing. Ha! I got this figured out!

I love to go 4-wheeler riding with daddy. Mommy won't let him go very fast though. She yells at us, "BE CAREFUL! GO SLOW! HOLD ON TO HIM TIGHT!" Daddy and I just laugh at her and take off! I LOVE doing stuff with daddy!

I also love my new John Deere tractor. I like to push it around the house. I also like to honk the horn.

I pretty much eat all big boy food now. I LOVE fruit! Especially mandarin oranges. I also LOVE sweet potato french fries from Market Place Grill! I love spaghetti too!YUMMMM! I ate my first pancake at Stoby's last Saturday. It was so good! Let's be honest...I pretty much love all food! I will eat whatever mommy and daddy put in front of me. They call me a garbage disposer. I still like mommy's milk the best though. She keeps saying we need to start weaning me. Whatever that means!

I only take one nap a day now. I usually take it right after lunch and then sleep for about 3 hours! I love it and so does mommy! I still go to bed at 7:30 p.m. and wake up around 6:30 a.m.

One of my favorite toys is my basketball. I love to throw it, bounce it and slap it with my hands. It is so much fun!

Mommy and I play outside everyday when the weather is nice. I love spending time outside with mommy. We talk, laugh, make silly noises and play games. She loves me so much.

Mommy got me a little swimming pool so I can play in the water outside. I LOVE IT!!! I splash and kick my feet. It is a big hit so far! I am ready for gigi and papa to get the big pool ready to swim in though! Mommy and daddy bought a raft for little guys like me to get in the big pool. I can't wait to try it out!

There are so many more things I have been up to the past month. Mommy will have to post some more stuff later.

That's all for now!

Such a cutie. Get ready because this is just the start of getting into EVERYTHING. You think they have it figured out and can't get into anything else and then somehow they do!!! However, it is the beginning of so much fun!!

I am so glad you guys got moved and settled in! That is so much work with a baby.
