So now that Connor is ten months old, it's probably about time I post last month's update. I'm determined not to give my second child the short end of the stick, but it's not easy! Even though Evan is much more self-sufficient than having a toddler would be, finding time to do all the things I did with Evan as a baby is hard. Especially now that he is very, very mobile. When he's awake and active, he doesn't want to sit with mommy now. He wants to be on the floor exploring! His crawl is unique. One foot in front, one behind, and he can scoot scrawl from one end of the house to the other in no time. It's starting to emerge in this video, but he quickly gave up on the traditional crawl and developed his own method. And yes, that's Evan enticing him by dragging an area rug ("carpet") that Connor is chasing. He also started standing this month, but he's still more interested in crawling most of the time. I love the mischievous look he gave me though as he peeked over his shoulder in this photo. As if to say, oh mommy, you have no idea what I have planned. As far as I'm concerned, the biggest news for nine months is that he started saying mama! That, and baba, which Evan says means "brother." Connor gets a huge kick out of his growing vocal abilities. He does this little "huh" chuckle whenever he does something new and it amuses him. One of many things I need to work to get on video. Nine month stats: 19.5 lbs 28.25 in.
