9 Months Old

Zachary turned 9 months old yesterday.  Boy have things changed around our house in the last month.  From learning to crawl to wanting to walk all around the furniture.  It is quite the task to keep up with our little guy.

9 month stats:
21.2 lbs.
30 1/4 inches

Zach's latest (tonight).  Kylie went to get in the shower so she could get ready for bed, but she forgot to shut the door all the way.  So Zach pushes the door open.  Kylie thinks it's me coming in, and says mom what do you want?  When I don't answer she just goes on doing what she is doing but all of a sudden this little face appears in the glass of the shower, cause Zach wants to see what Kylie is doing.  It scared her, but it was also funny.
Zach has also started sitting at the top of the stairs where the gate has been placed(yeah we finally found one that we liked) and he shakes the gate, like he is saying let me down there.

More Basketball

Kylie had her second game yesterday.  I guess that you could say she was got a little more into it.  We encouraged her to go after the ball, and to our surprise she did.  Although, after going after the ball and getting hit in the face with another kids head she had to come out and cry a little bit, but  she got right back in there and kept playing.  She even got a carpet burn from getting down on the floor to go after the ball.   

Sleeping Trouble

Lately we have been having trouble sleeping at our house.  It seems that Zachary has decided that the crib is not the place that he wants to be sleeping.  Here is a couple of pictures of our little night owl on one such night.  I laid him in bed by me and this was the position that he soon found to sleep in.  I couldn't resist taking a picture.

He looks so cute with his little bum sticking up in the air.
I love these pj's.

Here is a couple of pictures of the kids just having fun together.

Zach has decided that when I get out the camera, he is now going to start smiling a little bit.  I think the real reason for the smile is he sees that I have something different and he wants to play with it,
Here Zach is crawling to me to try to get the camera.
As you can see from this picture, Zach has not only started crawling (I tried to down load a video but it wouldn't go through.) but he is pulling himself up on the furniture as well.  Last night he braved the gap from the couch to the recliner and made it.

Jr. Jazz

Kylie started playing Jr. Jazz this last Saturday.  One thing that surprised me was that at this age they combine the boys and the girls.  I don't know what they worked on during their practice they had, but all of her team looked lost, except for two of the boys.  I don't think that they realized that they would have to run up and down the floor, and that someone would be trying to guard them.  Let's just say that we are going to start taking Kylie to the High School Games so that she has some idea what to do.  She does shoot the ball pretty well, but didn't know much about the rest of it.  
She says that she had fun and can't wait to do it again next week.
Check out the number on her shirt.  Does it look familiar????  I promise I didn't pick it out.  They just gave it to her.

Zachary did a good job of cheering her on.  What he really wanted to do was get down and crawl and follow her around on the floor.

Funny Faces

After Christmas we were trying to get Zach to look at the camera.    Instead of smiling this was the funny look that we got.

Our Singing Man

Zachary has become quite the little singer.  It doesn't matter what he has in his hands, he will twist it and then do what sounds like singing.
