Colton 9 Months

This past month was full of changes. You started having so much personality! And so much hair! We trimmed your wings but now your hair requires product to keep it out of your eyes. You have 2 new teeth up top for a total of 6 teeth. You make the funniest squeals and sounds and like to kick your legs and bounce with excitement. You have been so much fun and such a joy this month.

Size: You weigh 18 lbs 8 oz (29%) and you are almost 30 in tall (94%). You wear mostly 9 month clothes although you need 12 month jammies for the length.

Eat: You nurse about every 3 hours during the day. You just recently started warming up to the idea of purees by eating a little bit from pouches. We have offered you small chunks of avocado and puffs but you act disgusted and gag.

Sleep: After our double vacations your sleep got a little thrown off. You have been waking up once in the night to nurse but are good about going right back down. I am hoping this phases out. You still do great going down for the night and wake up happy in the morning and after naps. You take a morning and afternoon nap that range from 1-2 hours each. You love your lovie!

Likes/Dislikes: You have gotten a lot better at playing on your own lately. Everything in sight goes straight to your mouth. You like when we support you so you can stand and watch everything that is going on. When you see yourself in the mirror you start bouncing with excitement and making funny noises. Peekaboo cracks you up.
We call this your Dwight Shrute look.

Skills: You no longer topple while sitting. You immediately get into the crawling position but still can't get your arms going. Once you are in crawling position you love getting into downward dog. Army crawling is your preferred method of transportation for getting across the floor.

I love this age. You are sweet and cuddly and fun. You have been such a laid back, happy baby lately and I can't get enough of you!
