9 Month Update

Remember  J's one month and two month updates?


Height: 30 inches (97.04 percentile)
Weight: 20 lbs 5.8 oz (63.30 percentile) 
Head circumference: 18.31 inches (88.38 percentile) 

General Updates: 

-Bedtime is improving though Saturday nights are the worst, which stinks because we have to get up really early on Sundays. 
-He is progressively getting better with solid foods. 
-He tummy scoots everywhere and is beginning to get into everything.  Baby proofing is on the agenda this week.  (I literally just saw him crawl, for like 5 seconds.  It must be just around the corner.)
-His favorite thing to play with and eat is paper.  I don't get it.  Sometimes I just give him magazines to rip apart to keep him entertained.  It works well until he decides to eat them.  
-Still a people person but is getting a bit more shy around them.  
-I think we are up to 6 teeth trying to come in on top. 
-He is a champ at teething.  No increase in drooling, no illness, no fevers.  A win for the amber necklace. 
-He has had to take the bottle a few times recently and hasn't had any problems doing so. 
-He has begun to show much more affection for his dad.  Crying when he sees his dad but can't have him.  Smiling like crazy when he comes home from work.  Hubby is eating it up, of course.
-He has started, what I have termed, breastfeeding contortionism.  He stops eating, moves into some strange position, then goes back to eating.  Not sure why.  It is almost as if he wants to see what the strangest position he can eat in is.
-Doesn't much like having his teeth brushed or diapers changed.  Glad babies hate and love things in cycles.  This too shall pass!
