Jack: 9 Months!


 
 
Length: 29.5 inches
Weight: 21 lbs 4 oz.
Head Circumference: 18.25 inches
Size 4 Diapers
Wearing 9 and 12 month clothing

Milestones this month:
  • Teeth! You now have four six!
  • Waving goodbye when we say "bye" or "adios."  It's so sweet (and sad) to see you wave bye to me in the mornings when I leave for work. 
  • The stranger anxiety phase has definitely hit us
  • We've heard you say mama a few times, but I'm not sure it was intentional.  You never say it when I'm trying to get you to.  You're probably just messing with me!
Things you like this month:
  • Music
  • Dancing
  • Patty cake, The Wheels on the Bus and Horsey Horsey are your favorite songs
  • Exersaucer
  • Raccoonie and your other "friends"
  • Going for walks, especially with Tucker
Things you don't like this month:
  • Strangers
  • Change
  • "Practice" crawling or being on your tummy
  • Elevators
  • Eating table food...I've tried and tried to give you solid food, but you just aren't into it.  From chunkier fruits and veggies, meats, mum mums, yogurt melts and puffs.  You love to play with it all, but prefer to be spoon fed your purees when it's time to actually eat. 
Special memories this month:
  • Your first Superbowl
  • Attending Owen's 2nd birthday party and riding the choo-choo train with me!
  • Attending the Bassett Baby Planning Open House and playing with Hadley
  • Attending Jason's confirmation at church.  You weren't that good during the service, but you were there!  It was precious at the end when everyone applauded and you gave this super loud shriek as if everyone was scaring you. 
  • Coming to work with me when your nanny was on vacation.  You were so fussy at first, but I threw you in the baby carrier and you took a long nap on me while I worked...so sweet. 
  • Visiting Dad at his hotel.  He loved showing you off to all of his coworkers
  • Spending the night at dad's hotel for his employee appreciation party.  You didn't last long with the babysitter, but settled down as soon as I came back.  It was a little annoying since I had gone to all the trouble to get pretty, but also super sweet.  You slept great in the hotel once you had someone familiar with you. 
  • Finally, my most special memory was something so little but precious to me.  When we rode the elevator at Dad's hotel, you did not like the motion it made when going up and down (it's really fast).  You didn't cry or panic.  You just grabbed my neck tighter than you've ever grabbed me and buried your head into me.  You did this every single time we rode it. 
Dear Jack,

I'm writing your 9 month post a little late, so as I type this you are almost 10 months.  We are just now {finally} getting over your first real sickness.  It was rough, but probably more on me.  Even at your sickest, you are still a happy little guy.  You would go from screaming your head off in pain to laughing at dad doing something stupid.  Thank goodness for all of his crazy antics.  A stubborn ear infection, three rounds of antibiotics, three trips to the pediatrician, one trip to a specialist and lots of snuggles later, I'm happy to report you are on the mend.  We love you more everyday and can't believe we are getting closer and closer to your one year birthday!  You were just born!!!

Love,
Momma (repeat it with me now)
