9 Months Old

9 Months
Height: 29 inches (75%)
Weight: 18 lbs. 2.5 oz (10-25%)
He's tall and skinny!

CT's 9 month check-up was the worst so far. He wasn't feeling well so he was very upset and crabby. Plus, now he recognizes the clinic and knows why we are there. I am still very happy with the PA we are seeing there. She is very engaging and gentle with CT. She has two little kids at home so she offers both medical and real advice for parenting an infant. He got the Polio and Hep B booster. Ewww, not fun.

  • Looks when we calls his name. Tests us when we say "No Thank You" or "Icky" or "Ouch"
  • Crawling
  • Really enjoys walking with hands held
  • Loves Tucker. Squeals as he crawling towards him.
  • Sleeping and napping really well
  • Introducing more foods. More food makes it to his mouth and stays there. He loves his sippy cup. Still wants his puffs.

His hair is really start to grow in and get full and fuzzy. He has some really long hairs that I'm pretty sure are the original hairs from when he was born. It's very blond and soft and I can't get enough of it. A few months back I was feeding him and looked down to realize that his eyelashes had darkened and were very long like his Papa's.

We are still dealing with the "stranger danger" complex. He is really only comfortable with me, Christos, Auntie Becky and the boys. It seems to be getting worse, before it's getting better, but I keep reading that this is normal. We continue to try to get him to socialize with every opportunity that presents itself. Also, much like me, he startles very easily.

Tooth count: 0
He is exceptionally snotty, drooly and crabby this week. No fever, but this has to be teething, right? Or is it another cold? Either way, I feel bad for the little guy.

We are off to Encinitas, CA this week. I'm sure there will be plenty to report on when we return.

For your viewing pleasure. (He was ok, by the way.)

Play time with Papa
Don't be fooled by these cheeks.
