9 Months old! (Can you believe it?)

Our baby is now 9 months old. Three more months and he will be 1!!! Where does the time go? I am trying to savor this first year, I mean, look at all the milestones and accomplishments that take place during thier first year of life! These days Liam is getting more and more mobile and independent. Here is what is going on in his life:
-Liam eats three meals a day plus nurses 3 to 4 times a day. He is only serious about nursing 2 times a day. The other times he just wants a "snack."
-Liam still eats baby food from the jar but I try to give him finger foods at every meal as well.
Finger foods he loves:
Black Olives
Green Beans
Black Beans
Turkey Dogs
Baked Potatoes
Physical Development:
Liam has been army crawling for about a month now. He will go from sitting to his hands and knees and then to his belly. It is amazing how fast he is!! Liam will also pull up on things every once in a while...... but we still help him in this area quite a bit. Liam loves to crawl to the dog bowls, door stoppers, and electrical cords. :(
Liam's new favorite game is to throw his toys and then chase after them. This will keep him entertained for a while (it also keeps us entertained too!).
We are also working on some basic sign language with Liam. So far he will sign "all done" and "more." I think that is a pretty good start!
Liam also will clap when he gets excited or sees people that he loves. He also loves to wave bye- bye.
Lastly, we have discovered that if Liam is not happy we can just put him in the bathtub. This kid loves to take baths! He will sit in the bath and play for as long as I will let him!
