Jacob at 9 months

Wow. I can't believe so much time has gone by! The last few months Jacob has started to show more personality. Or maybe he is just showing a bit more of a feisty personality so I'm really noticing it! He loves to scream. We are not so fond of it. He is finally starting to show some desire to move around but hasn't gotten very far with any skills. I'm not too upset. The sitting but can't/doesn't want to move stage is a favorite of mine. He does love to stand on his legs. In fact, he is starting to get upset sometimes when you sit him on your lap because he wants to stand on your lap instead.
He loves books, water and eating solid foods although he gets upset if the food is not presented the way he wants. I have no idea what way this is, but he seems to often get upset while eating. Remember that screaming I mentioned? This is a favorite screaming time. He eats most of what we eat right now. Crazy huh? Joshua definitely wasn't doing that at this age. I'll have a post more about that later (assuming I ever catch up with things).

He usually takes two 2 hour naps a day and sleeps about 12 hours at night. The thing that is especially nice with sleeping is that anyone can put him down to sleep and he goes down without a peep.

He's got a case of separation anxiety and is starting to have stranger anxiety as well. He usually ends up spending some of his day in a baby carrier so that I can get some stuff done. If you know me you know I LOVE my carriers. It is nice to have a baby that appreciates them too :)

Weight: 22 lbs
Length: 30.5 in
Head Circumference: ?
(the nurse was behind so I never found out any of the %tiles or the head circumference)
For reference, here he is at 2 weeks, 2 months4 months and 6 months.

 Jacob has an extreme Mohawk.

Your little Jacob is darling! I LOVE his eyes and eyelashes! Is that a picture taken in Sacrament Meeting? Is that even "legal" to do? :/

He is so cute! I can't believe you have two kids. I played the game "Life" the other day with my nieces and nephews and remembered back to playing with you and Ruth at a sleepover. Back when you guys had the one big room.
