9 month update {andrew}

Andrew is 9 months old today!  As always, I can’t believe how quickly time is going by and how big Andrew is already.  Even the girls who watch Andrew while I am at work commented on how big Andrew is getting.  Andrew continues to be the sweetest baby you can imagine.  He is easy going and very content.

Age: 9 months on November 20, 2013

Weight: 21 pounds 1 ounce  (74th percentile)    Height: 30.5 inches (99th percentile)

Sleeps: {on a perfect night} about 7:00 pm – 6:00 am, but this month has been rocky.  Between his upper teeth coming in and a cough that seems to reappear just as he goes to bed, there have been quite a few nights I have been up with him two or three times and even a night or two in which he had me up every hour.  Hoping for more sleep during the 10th month!

Naps: about one hour each morning {9:30-10:30} and about two hours each afternoon {starting around 1:30 pm} when he is at home.  At daycare he only gives them two 30 minute to 60 minute naps each day.  Yikes!

Eats: nurses about every three -four hours, eats rice cereal or oatmeal with homemade fruit puree in the morning around 7:00 am, & homemade purees {now including meat} for lunch around 11:30 am and dinner around 4:30 pm.  We are also trying small finger foods like chunks of banana and other fruits, egg whites, and rice.  He loves his little fruit puffs {we just get the Up&Up brand from Target} as a snack.

Loves: crawling all over, pulling up on furniture to his knees, clapping when someone says “yay Andrew!”, raising his had over his head when someone says “SO big!”, chewing on spoons and toys, playing with all his toys and books, playing with kitchen utensils {i.e. spatulas and wooden spoons}, going on walks, being outside, being carried around in his Moby wrap, laughing with his big sisters, snuggling, babbling back and forth with mommy and daddy, laughing, eating fruit puffs while sitting in his highchair

New this month: raises hands over his head when someone says “SO big!”, babbles a lot more when you talk to him,

This month we: went on his first trip to Disneyland {he loved the Dumbo ride!}, visited the doctor again for what we suspected might be an ear infection {it wasn’t}
