9 Months

What a month this has been sweet Calvin! You have changed so much and much to our dismay are growing up very quickly :)

Weight: 15lb 15oz (8%)
Length: 28.94 in (95%) we think this was an off measurement :)
Head Circumference: 17.52 in (58%)

Clothes: Calvin is currently wearing a combination of 6 month, 6-9 month and 9 month sleepers. He has also moved up to size three diapers.

Eating: This kids loves to eat and will eat just about anything that he is given! He used a straw cup this month for the first time and is eating three meals a day. Currently he is eating: breast milk, sweet potato, carrots, apples, prunes, blueberries, zucchini, spinach, peas, green beans, banana, avocado, chicken, apricots, peaches…. He is still having purees for his meals but will eat puffs and coconut milk creamies as well. These have been a godsend so that I can take a quick bite of my own meal in-between feeding him!

Sleep:  I somehow managed to score an amazing sleeper this go around! If you remember anything about Christian's sleep habits, I think we deserved a little reprieve with this child! Calvin is taking two naps a day, usually for 1 1/2- 2 hours each. HIs first wake time is 2 hours and his second wake time is 2 1/2 hours. He goes to bed around 7:30 and sometimes wakes up at 6:00/6:30 to eat but usually goes back to sleep for another hour. At the very end of this month he has been fighting a double ear infection (again!) so he hasn't been sleeping quite as well but this is his normal pattern.

Playtime and Activities: It has been so fun to watch Calvin discover how he can play with his toys in a whole new way, thanks to his new found skill of sitting! He is loving his large activity cube and stacking and knocking over blocks. He also can army crawl around to explore which he thinks is pretty neat. He still loves the exersaucer but no longer plays much on the activity mat. Calvin spent a week at the cabin this month and enjoyed being out by the lake.

Development: Calvin finally got the hang of sitting just at the end of this last month. He is army crawling everywhere and hardly ever stays still. He is working on his two bottom teeth but none have poked through so far. He is also starting to wave "bye bye" and will give big, open mouth, slobbery kisses.  He is jabbering a lot and repeating consonants but no official words yet!

Firsts and Fun:
* Weeks at the cabin
* Sitting
*Army crawling
* Waving  bye
* Cutest dimples you ever did see!
