Well, you’re a busy little boy! You started sitting up around 8 months and from there it has been one thing after another. You pull up on everything and have started walking around all the furniture. Sometimes, when you know someone is watching, you will let go of the couch and hold your hands up for as long as you can. We all clap and you are so proud of yourself. This stage is so hard because you are wanting to go so fast, but your coordination is not there yet, so you fall and hit your head all the time! Maybe we’ll get you a helmet for Christmas.
You started clapping and waving bye-bye around 9 months and you love playing Patty-Cake and Peek-a-Boo, especially with Hannah. You had 4 teeth (top and bottom), but just recently a new one came in the upper right side, so you now have 5 total. At your 9 month check-up you weighed 17 pounds 14 ounces (40th percentile) and were 28 inches long. Your head came in at 18 inches which is apparently large (80th percentile).
You are still wearing a size 3 diaper (mainly because I’m trying to finish them off before getting a size 4) and 9 month clothes. You take 3 bottles a day (unless your with a grandmother) and eat 3 meals with 2 snacks (approximately). Your 2 naps are getting longer and your night time sleep is getting better also. You still love playing with Hannah but now that you are on the move, she’s a little
stingy cautious with her toys. Don’t worry, she’ll come around.
Here you are with your Dad in Canyon at the end of October. It was your first snow.
I can’t believe you’ll be one in less than three months! Let the party planning begin!
