9 months old and lost teeth

Holy cow!  Where does the time go?  Matthew hit the nine month mark on Friday and at his dr.'s appt this morning measured in at a whopping 19lbs 10oz (I think) and 29 inches long.  He actually has lost weight from a sick visit a few weeks ago when he was 12lbs 7oz, probably because he is so active now crawling all over the place.  Yep, that's right, we have a crawling baby!  Nothing is safe these days because Matthew has figured out how to get into everything!  His brothers are not so sure they like this new phase.  So here are some recent pics of my boy who will not be a baby for much longer!!

Last week I took James to the dentist because his teeth were hurting.  The dentist, after a long explination about how he probably won't start to lose teeth until he is seven, took a look at James and said, "Well, here is the problem, his two bottom front teeth are really loose.  They probably won't come out for a while though."
James lost his first tooth yesterday at school.  It was really loose before he left and I tried to pull it out for him but was a little too squeemish to pull hard. So while James was at school he pulled it out himself and held it in his hand until I came to get him.

Then today James was having his mid morning snack and his other very loose bottom front tooth started bleeding all over the place so I pulled it out for him.  Yuck.  I must really love this kid.
