Magnus is older than he was before

Some how, in the last three months, I have slacked off in regards to this blog. When Mina was a baby I made an effort to take a monthly picture next to a sign. Sorry, Magnus. 
In the time since his 6 month check up several things have happened. Luckily, most are good things. 
Early in December Magnus' first tooth made its appearance. The next tooth broke soon after so Magnus went from no teeth to two teeth almost overnight. 
Magnus celebrated his first Christmas by almost pulling an all nighter. It was exhausting. 
I tried to take a cute picture of the kids in front of the tree, post presents. I got this instead:

It was a nice, snowy first Christmas for Magnus. 

On January 2nd, Magnus started crawling. He had it mastered soon after. 
His first attempt consisted off flinging his arms and legs while propelling himself forward. I'm so glad I caught it on film. 

Magnus and Mina shared a cold which meant sleepless nights and clingy kids. I'm grateful they have been mostly healthy, it could have been a lot worse. 
Mina dragged Magnus back into his room while shouting, "Come back in, baby boy!"
She calls him a variety of names including:
Baby boy
Baby brother

It's pretty adorable. 

His nine month stats:
Head circumference: 17 3/4"
Length: 27 1/4"
Weight: 18 lbs 12 oz

He wears mainly 6-12 month clothes with  some 6 month sized items. He and Mina wear size 3 diapers. 

He has two teeth with two more on the horizon. 

He has moved on from crawling to creeping as well as cruising the furniture. 

He eats anything and everything! We never had to be as careful with Mina but Magnus puts everything in his mouth!
