9 months and taking care of babies

Daxton turned 9 months old last week (on Father's Day).  I forgot to mention in my Father's Day post that he said dada for the first time on Father's Day!!  BEST. GIFT. EVER.   I took Dax for his 9 month appointment on Friday.  Here are his new stats:

Height: 29 inches (73%)
Weight: 21 lbs 3 oz (60%)
Head: 17 3/4 cm (46%)

Isn't he handsome?

 Ignore me.....I find it hard to find motivation to put on make-up.  Dax doesn't care either way! :)

New accomplishments this month:  Saying dada. He tries to sneak ice cream.  Dada always gives in! He started standing unassisted and a couple of days ago he took his first step unassisted.  He can only go one step right now, but I'm sure he will be taking more very soon. He also had another tooth come in on the top!  That makes six teeth (four on top, 2 on bottom)!!

For the past week I have had another baby to take care - one much bigger (and more demanding) than Daxton.  I kid.....but I have been doing my best to take care of Zach for the past week.  He had laser eye surgery.  Thank you military for amazing insurance!!!  Zach can see for the first time without glasses or contacts for the first time in 20 years.  It is a quick recovery, but also very difficult to be without your eyes for 4 days. 

We are getting very excited around here, because this weekend we are getting out of North Carolina.  We're venturing down to South Carolina to visit my friend Jenn (Aunt Jenn).  Her and her husband just had their first baby and I cannot wait to give their little boy some love!  I have been dying to get out of NC which is difficult to do when you are preggo. 

Speaking of being pregnant:  LESS THAN TWO MONTHS UNTIL I AM DONE!!!!  There are many people that love being pregnant.  For the most part, I enjoyed being pregnant with Daxton (until the end), but this pregnancy has been dreadful the entire time.  I was very sick the first/second trimester and my body has been aching for the past 7 months.  I cannot wait to feel normal again!
