A Late 9 Month Post

My little guy turned 9 months on March 12. He changes so much everyday.

March 12, 2010

Turning into a little boy!

  • You are still wearing a size 3 diaper.
  • This is the 1st month we had to buy diapers... we were SO blessed to get so many from our family and friends before you were born.
  • At your 9 month check-up you weighed 20 lbs and 2 oz. You had lost some weight from your 8 month weight but you were naked when you weighed this time and I think you have lost a few ounces because you are SO busy!
  • You were 28 inches long and your head circumference was 49 cms... you have a large head!!
  • You are still wearing 6-12 month clothes but I have started to buy a few 12- 18 month things because the others are a little snug!
  • You are such a great sleeper. When you are at home you take 2 really good naps from anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours but when you spend the day with your Nanny you take a few 10 minute naps! You are still sleeping thru the night. You go to sleep around 9:30 or 10 and wake up to have a bottle at 6:30 and go back to sleep until about 10! You even slept one day until 10:30.

  • You are still a GREAT eater. You are still eating all kinds of table food but you are starting to enjoy table food more than anything. When we saw Dr. Smith at the 9 month check up he said you can have anything except for nuts, peanuts, hotdogs, popcorn, and honey. You really haven't turned down anything! Just like your mother!!
  • You had the Gerber Puffs for the 1st time this month and you feel in love! I think you would eat an entire container if I would let you. You must think they are really yummy!
  • You started drinking 8 oz in your bottle. You still like to have milk every 3-4 hours. You drink the Similac Advance or the Similac Sensitive. Dr. Smith said no whole milk until 12 months.

  • You are still the best baby. You are so happy all the time and love to smile at everything! Your smile brightens my day!
  • You had your 1st ear infection this month... actually on the day of your check-up. It was on the right side and you had to be on an antibiotic.... Amoxicillin!

  • You love to be around people and you like to hang out with your friend Grey! You chase after Grey but he can crawl REALLY fast!
  • You have 8 teeth... 4 on bottom and 4 on top!
  • You have really became a big explorer this month. You love to find new things and you are very curious about them when you do find something new.
  • You are still doing the army crawl but I think you are closer to getting on your knees than you were. You can really move fast when you do your little army crawl.
  • You have a walker and you zoom around everywhere in that. You can get around so well but we have to put up some gates because you try to eat plants, climb down stairs, and put your fingers in the electrical sockets.

  • You had your 1st hair cut this month. It wasn't a whole head hair cut we just trimmed the hair over your ears because it was way too long. Your Nanny Linda cut it and you did a great job. You weren't really sure what was going on at first... I think it probably was scratching your ear!
  • Your Papa Johnny died this month on February 24, 2010. He had a very bad heart attack. It breaks my heart to know that you will never get to know him. You were his 3rd grandson and he was very proud of you. He came to see you at your Nanny's not to long ago and I am so glad.
  • Time is flying way to fast and you are getting way to big... You are turning into a little boy! I love you SOOOO very much.

  2. I've always heard not to give strawberries to babies under age 2. A lot of kids are allergic to strawberries.
