Everett is 9 months old

We decided to upgrade our Flickr account to the pro status, so we now have tons of new photos uploaded to our Flickr page. There are pictures from Everett's first haircut as well as photos of him at 9 months, which he just turned yesterday. He had his well visit yesterday and was 20 lbs. 2 oz., which puts him in the 50th percentile for weight and he was 30" long, which puts him in the 98th percentile for height. He's tall and skinny, just like his dad! I can hardly believe he's 9 months old now! He's gotten so big. He's happy and healthy and such a joy.

Everett can scoot around on his bottom and when he's on his belly he can move backwards, but he's not crawling yet, which is fine by mom! It's so nice to sit him down in one place and have him still be there when I get back. He has recently started spitting, which is so attractive and he's still constantly drooling although there are no signs of any new teeth. He's only got his two bottom teeth, which he's had for awhile. He loves tags on things and anything made out of paper. His favorite activity is to open the mail with daddy. He is starting to grab for anything, and is even willing to dive out of our arms. He loves to be tickled under his arms and has the cutest laugh. He's so much fun.

We finished painting our living room and dining room and it looks really great. We've still got to finish our playroom and downstairs bathroom and I'm hoping to also paint the den (a gold color). We've got to get all of this done before Everett really starts moving and getting into everything. We're heading to the beach with our friends, Sam and Trevor, for Memorial Day Weekend. We're staying with Sam's parents in Georgetown, SC. We were also there with them last year in April and it's beautiful there. I'm really looking forward to seeing Everett's first reaction to the sand and the waves. Hopefully it will be warm enough for us to go for a swim!

Enjoy all the new photos!
