Nine months

(Palmer's nine month birthday and Christmas happened to coincide this year, so you are going to have to put up with two long posts.)
HEIGHT: 29.5 inches (90th percentile)
WEIGHT: 22 lbs (65th percentile)
HEAD: 44 cm, (15th percentile)

*Eating - Based on the stats above, you can see that Palmer is a big boy (although trending towards the "Tall" side as opposed to the "Big and Tall" like in past months.)  I am regularly told, "Palmer had a big lunch and out-ate all of the other kids today" when I pick him up from school.
And when there's not food around, a hanger will do just fine!
*Balls - Palmer is a big fan of throwing balls (and everything else) and says, "Ba".

*Boston - Boston is still a favorite although Palmer has recently taken to pulling his hair and laughing like crazy.  Boston is not pleased and we've had a lot of talks about "being gentle" and "nice".  Palmer says, "Da" when he is looking for Boston.

*Books (especially Goodnight Moon at night)
*Standing - I think Palmer is able to stand by himself, but when we practice he balances for a second and then falls down and laughs hilariously.  He's missing the point and thinks it's much more fun to fall than to stand.

*Pushing trucks and other large objects around the house.  Check out this shopping cart Aunt Samantha got Palmer for Christmas.  She said she wants him to be a foodie!

*Boston's dog food.  (Yes, this continues to be an issue, especially because Boston's vegetarian dog food looks just like puffs.)

Happy nine months, Palmer!
