month 9: monkey picture

Happy 9 month b-day sweet Kelvin!

Between last months post and this one, Kelvin has mastered the crawl (legitimately crawl rather than the scoot he had going on) has started to wave (mainly just at Greg)… say ma-ma and da-dad… along with some  ba-ba’s – among other combinations of squeals, yells and other interesting sound effects! I think he has definitely found his voice! He loves to tell us things even if we can’t understand him… and sometimes with such passion that it makes us laugh!  He is a very happy and smiley little guy and we just love him to pieces! And he now has 4 teeth with more due any day!

Here are his past monkey pics for those of you just tuning in!

Just for fun (because I could not wait until 12 months), here is a side by side comparing month 0 and month 9!

Not the best of pics because they are set up different, but you get the idea! 🙂

I can’t believe we are at this point already…

We will see you next month! 🙂



Happy December…


This is a great month – seems like every year it is fitting to celebrate Christmas earlier and earlier… although I honestly do not like Christmas flooding and taking over Thanksgiving! My own personal preference would be not to see the stores fill their shelves with Christmas until after Thanksgiving is over – but hey, nobody will ever ask my opinion I am sure. It really does not matter much anyways…. but what a wonderful time of year!

Thank goodness you are probably saying as this is the last month for my corny posts on each month – hopefully the new year will bring some time and energy for me to blog more interesting things…

so without further delay

YAY for Kelvin turning 5 months… already! He is starting to really grow up fast… I know he is only 5 months and he has years and years of growing up to do… I am just saying time has sped up! The first few months went much slower… must have been the lack of sleep! 🙂

Here are his past month pictures again! 🙂

Wow, he has  grown… but it helps that he is not so scrunched up still! Look at his big hands and feet! We have a big boy on our hands!

He never wore newborn clothes! Had to pack those away right away!
