9 months

Happy 9 months Christian!
*technically he is 9 1/2 months in these pictures... no sleep = no blogging :)

9 Month Stats
Weight: 18.3 lbs. ( 16%)
Length: 29 in. ( 75 %)
Head Circumference: 18.1 in. (71 %)

Clothes: We continue to wear out those 3-6 month and 6 month clothes! Christian has been growing slowly so they are getting lots of love :) We are very close to putting all the 3-6 month clothes away and  are shopping for all his adorable fall/winter ensembles.  He is in size 2 diapers until this box is out.

Christian makes me laugh every day. He loves to play with his blocks by knocking them over and having a giggle fit when I put one on his head. He loves the exersaucer and the jump and go which is really nice when I need to set him down! We have been going on lots of walks, singing the "Itsy Bitsy Spider" everyday (its a good thing I learned there are 4 verses to this song!), rolling, sitting and just smiling at each other. Life is good!

Christian popped his first tooth in the last few days so his tongue is constantly sticking out of his mouth as he feels this strange new thing. He loves to stand while holding onto the couch but without support only lasts about 5 seconds. :) He has also been trying to sign "more" at meal time.  We are also back to full dosage of Prevacid.

Eating: breast milk, avocado, rice cereal, oatmeal, banana, sweet potato, carrots, applesauce, pears, peas, green beans, blueberries, squash, puffs

This has been such a difficult month of sleep I don't think I can condense it into a clear "schedule"... I've yawned a lot this month and drank a lot of coffee.
Wake up- 7:30ish 
2 naps- 9:30ish and 1:30ish (on a good day)
Bed- Oh help us... sometimes C woke up 5 or 6 times a night... sometimes none. Getting new teeth, a cold and travel did a wonder on this boy's schedule. Next month, sleep training!
