James is now 9 months old and it just keeps getting better!
Height and Weight: We went to the doctor this week and he is 20 lbs 6 oz and 28 1/2 inches long. Around the 50-60% for both. We are still wearing size 3 diapers and have recently switched from pampers to target brand diapers and I think it is TOTALLY worth the savings! Thank you Target for making a quality diaper for half the price!
Health: We are right on track developmentally and don't have any issues so far. So blessed to have a healthy baby. STILL waiting on those teeth. I don't mind one bit tho!
Sleep: I finally have a baby that sleeps!! We are 90% sleeping through the night! Hooray! About half the time he wakes up around 5:00 for a quick feed and then go back down until 7:30/8:00. Some nights he doesn't want that feed and doesn't make a peep until around 7:30. When I work I do wake him up at 5:30 and nurse - not sure if I should keep doing that or if I should just pump. I just fear I will not wake him and as soon as I leave the house at 6:00am he will be crying for milk!
Clothes: 9 mo or 6-12 mo outfits and 9 mo PJs.
Diet: James is eating 3 meals a day and only nursing 4 times. He nurses in the morning and bedtime and only twice during the day. SOO awesome! Mama loves that! He is an amazing eater and literally could eat and eat for hours. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree? He is eating more and more table foods and we are about to start meat - tonight actually! He loves all fruits and steamed veggies and loooove puffs. We started giving him cheerios too and he loves those. He also learned how to drink from his Zoli straw cup this month. It was so exciting for him to get it - he sucked it right up and kept on doing it until he choked! GiGi makes green smoothies for him and he loves drinking those!
Likes: Playing with other babies, when lots of people are in the house, watching baby einstein, strolling around the neighborhood, taking baths, eating anything, rubbing Molly, pulling Baxter's tail, laughing at me when I try to sign to him and anything involving mama and dada!
Milestones: We have a crawler this month! He is getting really fast too. He is feeding himself food now but we occasionally do purees when we are in a hurry. Pulling up on the couch, cruising around, and standing unassisted for half a millisecond.
