Our monthly photo shoot with the onesie, bear, and sign was quite the challenge this month.
I had forgotten how much (MORE) work is involved on my part once a baby goes "mobile". ;) (or maybe i had just blocked it out?!)
We did manage to get all of our monthly photos taken for the 9 month mark, and I have to say that I'm now slightly in denial that my baby is just a quarter year away from one - that's totally incomprehensible to me?!
And so, at 9 months, Noah...
...weighs 19 lbs.
...wears all 6-12 mos clothes, and still sleeps in his 9 mos carters sleepers.
...eats 3x's a day. His favorite foods are sweet potatoes, squash, pears, bananas, apple sauce, and cauliflower. He also LOVES his puffs (but only the sweet potato flavor - dont try to sneak anything else in!).
...wakes anytime between 7am and 7:45 am (with a 5am-ish feeding still) and goes to bed at 7:30ish. He's fallen into a nap routine of about and hour and a half in the morning and then another 45 mins to an hr in the afternoon. ((and STILL naps in the swing!))
...LOVES to be outside while evan plays in the yard. His new favorite activity is the blue push car that we have. we strap him in and take turns pushing him around the driveway and sidewalk.
...still uses both the exersaucer and the jumparoo ALOT. especially now that it's a "safe" place to put him.
...LOVES his nursery rhymes dvd. and watches is almost every morning. this sucker is seriously one of our best baby "tricks" (evan loved it too!).
...has finally given up his swaddle wrap at bedtime. (and we moved his crib down a bit)
...is toothless. i feel like we need to start a betting "pool" on when he'll finally get his first tooth. ;)
...nurses 4 or 5 times a day.
...looks at us and LAUGHS when we call his name to get his attention when he's about to get into something he shouldn't!
...wants you to "help" him stand up if you are sitting anywhere near him on the floor.
...enjoys "eating" magazines. and anything else he can fit in his mouth. ;)
...is called "sweetpea" and "noahpants" by us right now.
...has a ton of hair that i'm desperately trying to hold off on cutting (it's SOOOO straight!).
...and is still the biggest flirt ever. I love that. ;)
...we love you sweet boy. xoxo. :)
