Reno - 9 Months

He is happy about it, his Mama......not so happy. Where has the time gone?

He is a big ham around the people he knows. Can you say Riley Smith? That is pretty much exactly how his old man is. Right now he is very much into me, unless Dad is around. He generally cries when Riley leaves the house.

M-O-B-I-L-E!! This boy is very mobile. He started pulling up almost immediately after he started crawling. Lately he wants to try out stairs. The sad thing is that he is an accident-looking-for-a-place-to-happen. It's probably hard to tell, but he has a fat lip in these pics. It didn't just bust it, but skinned it as well. Mama's fault, don't ask. :(

Andy, oh Andy....we left him in the dust a long time ago. I think Reno weighs about 17 lbs now. This boy is very spoiled and pretty much only eats table food. I'm certain he would chow on a chicken fried steak if we'd let him. He likes refried beans, potatoes, fruit, raw veggies. Maybe we should try listing what he doesn't like. ha

We discovered that he can drink out of a straw. One day I offered it to him and he just did it. It has also been brought to my attention that when Tripp was "babysitting" at Hugo.....he gave him Dr. Pepper. The contest is over. Tripp is the winner so he won't need another drink of coke until he is at least 2!! Thanks!!

Reno has figured out the chasing game. Scout gets down and they crawl all over the house chasing each other. He also thinks it's fun to go under stuff...your legs, the table, the side of sister's teepee. You get the idea. Another trick he knows is to shake his head back and forth as if saying "no". I'm pretty sure he has no clue right now, but that'll come soon enough.

He is already discovered how to throw a fit to get what he wants. Scout did the stiffen up and scream thing at two weeks so we were already used to it with her. This guy has been alot more mellow than she is/was up until this past month. Boy has he cut loose!!

This is exactly what I'm talking about!! He also wrinkles up his nose and snorts, which is a Tandy/Tori Townsend trait. Let me tell you, he sure looks ornery when he does it.

This boy is near impossible to bathe. All he wants to do is stand up. I pretty much just dunk him and call it good. Then once he is out, all he wants to do is dive head first back in with sister. Just imagine. It isn't usually too pretty.

We have two happy, beautiful chillin' and are sooo thankful for them!!
