Happy 9-month birthday, little buddy!! It seems like just yesterday that you were born, but time flies when you're having fun, and we've had a LOT of fun together, brother!
First, your stats. You weigh in at 17lbs 7oz which is the 15%, and you are in tall which is the 60%. (By the way, I was 16lb 6oz - 12% and 28in - 60% when I was 9 months old). Amazingly enough, we are almost exactly the same! Long and lean, baby! You had fun at your dr appointment but you were very tuckered out by the time we got in the car to head home. By the way, do you like your sissy's photography skills?
Lots new going on with you this month. You are "crawling" everywhere (EVERYWHERE) even though its more of an army-crawl. You do get up and rock back and forth on your hands and knees, but that army crawl suits you just fine so you seem to be sticking with that. Your other big development is you are pulling up, by yourself, on EVERYTHING! It started with the crib...then your bin of toys, then on momma, now on the stairs and ottoman in our family room. Mom is quite nervous. Really buddy - you don't have to be so active so soon!
You also got your first two upper teeth this month...now you can REALLY bite down! Not coincidentally, mommy has weaned you off of breastfeeding so you are now totally bottle fed.
You normally nap 9-11 in the morning (sometimes more, sometimes less) and 1:30 - 3 in the afternoon. Bedtime is around 7:30 and you wake up at 5 for a bottle and then sleep until 7. OR you wake up more like 6:15 and then you are up for the day. Either way is fine with mommy...she just has to get used to being more of an early riser.
You are still quite happy, Luke. You are content to be dragged all over town to my classes and activities. There isn't much that makes you mad. You are used to being knocked over, poked and prodded by me and you seem to take it all in stride. You light up when you see me and mommy every day, and you really have bonded alot with Daddy this month as well. You love to sit up on his shoulders and can stay there forever!
You say lots of funny things... dadadada, yayayaya, goo goo. You like to eat finger foods too. You'll grab anything in sight and shove it in your mouth.
Hard to believe that you are getting so old, Luke! I'm looking forward to a great summer with you, brother!
