It is amazing how slow nine months seemed when you were growing in the womb and how fast nine months seem with you here with us. We fall more in love with you everyday. You make your mommy, daddy and big sister so proud to call you ours! This is how you are measuring up at the nine month mark:
Weight/height: Your nine month checkup was scheduled for today but your pediatrician is out of town so now it is moved to the beginning of February. I will update then.
Hair: Long, blonde and curling in the back. We keep it swept to the side so it's not in your face and all Christmas we joked that you looked like Hermey the Elf from Rudolph :)
It's the hair!
Eyes: Dark blue. They are shaped just like Georgia's and you look like identical babies when you sleep. You have beautiful eyelashes, just like your sister and daddy.
Clothes: 12 months. Some of your 12 month footed sleepers are snug already. You get hot easy so we have had a hard time dressing you warm this winter because you're like a little heater.
Diapers: size 3
Sleeping: Bedtime has moved up to 8:30 and you are only getting up one time to eat now-yay! You take usually two (sometimes three) 1-2 hour naps per day. Every time we go to get you in the morning or from nap you are standing up in your crib waiting.
Likes: Playing with Georgia Grace and being with her at all times, eating almost anything and everything, having someone hold your hands to walk, using your walker, baths, snuggling, your ba ba, being tickled, pinching :/, pulling hair :/ :/, being held
Dislikes: being put down, someone leaving the room, being confined, green vegetables
Eating: You take 4-5 bottles a day and eat 3 times. You eat baby food well and we have started incorporating some table foods-mashed potatoes, cooked carrots, cheese, bananas. You reach for the food we are eating. You are completely weaned from breakfast now and receive Enfamil formula now. I had hoped to make it to a year but I will take 3/4th a year with no complaints. I'm so glad our BF journey was successful and rewarding.
Favorite Foods: Oatmeal, mango, sweet potatoes, carrots, corn, brown beans, strawberries
Milestones: You are crawling everywhere, pulling up to stand, standing on your own and trying to walk! I wouldn't be shocked if you started walking before our next monthly update. I have mixed emotions about this but you are ambitious and I wouldn't dare stop you from being bold.
Baby items we can't live without: Wubbanub, walker
A little brother sister comparison at the nine month mark. You can tell they are siblings but they have their own adorable look too.
Happy nine months to our sweet son! Your first birthday is truly on the horizon. These last nine months have went crazy fast but they have been crazy fun too. You have been the perfect addition to our little family.
