9 months


9 months! What can I say, the kid is EVERYWHERE. He is unstoppable. He crawls. He climbs. He stands. 90% of my life these days is standing behind this kid catching him or pulling tiny bits of stuff out of his mouth that he found on the floor.

Weight: 20 lbs 12 oz - 50-60%
Height: 29.5" - 75-90%
Head: 18 3/8" - 75-90%

At 9 months he is:
- crawling everywhere
- climbing stairs
- pulling up on everything he can get leverage to pull up on. (Including my legs while I'm trying to make dinner.)
- Standing on his own. - I even saw him squat down and stand back up without holding onto anything yesterday!
- eating 3 meals of all finger foods. He won't really let me feed him baby food anymore.
- can drink with a straw, we are still working on a sippy cup.
- just today he waved "bye-bye".
- We are pretty sure he is saying "ma-ma" & "da-da" at times, in the right context.

He is sleeping OK - not great, but OK. He is taking two naps a day, one at 9 another at 1:30. They are usually an hour. He goes to bed about 6:30PM, then wakes up anywhere between 3-4AM. He usually eats, then goes back down until anywhere between 6-7AM.

We are stopping nursing. That is for another post.
