9 Months Old

It's that time again! The months just keep going by faster and faster. I feel like my baby is becoming more and more toddler-like and less and less baby-like with each passing day. Bittersweet. Graham had his 9 month check up this morning. Everything looks great, with the exception that he had a fever. He had one last night too, due to a little cold or related to teething, the doctor said. His doctor and all the nurses were very impressed with Graham's ability to say "Mama" and "Dada" and how much he was babbling :) He is hitting all his milestones great and everything looks perfect! His stats even went up a little in percentile, still on the little side, though!

Height: 27 1/2 inches 25.77 %
Weight: 18 lb 1.8 oz. 13.80%
Head Circumference: 17.52" 27.46%

Here's what our little man has been up to this month:

-Saying "Mama" and "Dada" discriminently
-Beginning to wave "Bye-Bye"
-Wearing size 9 month clothes
-Sleeping through the night
-Getting his top canine teeth, bringing his total teeth to 4 (no front teeth yet... he will be a little vampire for awhile I guess)
-Drinking 28 oz. of formula a day
-Eating 5 jars of baby food a day plus oatmeal in the morning
-Learning to drink from a sippy cup
-Wearing size 3 diapers
-Loves interacting with other kids
- Such a ham and smiles for the camera
-Makes lots of loud growling noises, so funny!
-Sitting up perfectly! Can go from tummy to sitting great now!
-Crawling all over
-Trying to begin to pull up
-Taking 2 naps a day and sleeping 10-11 hours at night
-Loves all baby food, there literally hasn't been anything he hasn't liked! Crazy!

Happy 9 months, my sweet baby. We love you more every second and we can't wait for what fun this next month will bring. We are so humbled and blessed that the Lord brought you into our lives, you are such an amazing and special little boy. Mommy and Daddy love you more than anything!!!!!
