9 months

 Mr. Zach-man is 9 months! That is crazy! You'd think by now he would be a better sleeper, but don't let this picture fool you...

Even though he look adorable sleeping, he is still not a good sleeper (sigh). I am wondering if I'll ever get a decent night sleep again. He is doing slightly better, but he still often wakes up in the night and wakes up VERY early (the last few days at 5:30 a.m....uggh!)

Anyway, despite his poor ability to sleep, he still is a pretty cute little bugger. He loves to eat anything he can get his hands on. Seriously, he would eat all day if I'd keep feeding him. He loves to make a very loud screeching sound. We joked and said that we should have named him Screech instead of Zach with his loud screeching noise and his curly dark hair! Ha!

He can sit up and roll over both ways, but has no interest in crawling or standing. That's ok with me...I don't really want him to be mobile yet. He is very grabby and will grab at anything set in front of him. This has resulted in several plates/bowls of spilled food that I have put too close to his reach.

He loves his sister, although she doesn't really like him very much. (Notice the big scratch on his head...courtesy of Emmy.) But Zach loves to watch her and try to do what she is doing.

He is also very grunty. He gets really red in the face trying to push stuff out. I don't know if he's constipated or what, but sometimes he seems really uncomfortable.

People always tell me what a beautiful boy he is. He's gonna be a heartbreaker someday with that curly, dark hair and big blue eyes! We love you Zach!
