9 months...3/4 of one year!

Wednesday, April 28, 2010
More photos, as promised! I'd like to thank the little red ball for making these photos at all possible.

Baby feet and baby butt!!

You expect me to stick around for this? I don't think so...I'm out. 

I apparently really liked the shorts tonight. 

So...what is this boy doing these days?

For starters, he moves....everywhere. all. the. time. He crawls, he climbs, he jumps, he pulls to stand, he cruises, walks with his Tonka truck, leaps into our arms when standing, etc. etc. etc. This child is happiest when he is free to move. He can also crawl up the stairs with a well-trained spotter behind him. 

He has his 9 month well baby check tomorrow morning, so I'll update those stats tomorrow. I'm thinking he's about 19, MAYBE 20 pounds. We will see. Check out the baby chunk on his legs in the last two photos. TOO adorable. 

He says dada, ada (which sometimes sounds like "all done"), and lots of other gibberish babbling. We are working on "mama", "Joe Mauer", and "Go Twins!" :)

He HATES diaper changing time. Hates it. Sometimes it is a two-person job.

Food eating is still a little stressful for me. He'll eat anything he can pick up: Cherrios, yogurt bites, gerber puffs, banana, meat, bread, corn, green beans, etc.) He is still not much into Gerber veggies. Although, as long as you literally pretend to put the spoon in the fruit container (when it already has a gigantic spoonful of veggies on it) he'll open his mouth wide. Since all Gerber food comes in the same container, it amazes me that he knows the difference. I'll post a video sometime. It's the only way we can get him to eat veggies...and it seems it's only the orange ones he'll eat these days. I know he's on his way to "outgrowing" the Gerber stuff; it's just difficult to know if he's getting enough. On the formula front, we are eating 4 or 5 9 ounce bottles each day.

He LOVES bananas. Ate a whole banana once at daycare, and this morning, whined until I gave him some of mine that I was eating.

He loves his Joe Mauer, as I discussed in a previous post. 

He gives kisses. I got two kisses on the lips today. Before, his kisses were more like sucking/trying to bite your cheek. He actually does it when you ask him to. And I'll admit, he seems to prefer kissing daddy for some reason. Must be the scruffy-ness daddy usually has. 

He plays peek-a-boo, claps his hands, and kind of/sort of does the sign for "more". We're also working on "all done" and "milk". I can tell he's at least learning an association, as he gets really excited when you sign "milk" and "more". 

He gives up dog toys when you ask him to (also another video I have). He still likes to grab the dog toys. When he gets one, we say "ahh-cky" (a somehow transformed version of "yucky"). Ryan then asked Henry to give it to him and Henry raised it up and let go (the let go part is key to the intentionality--Henry doesn't let go of much these days otherwise). We have it on video multiple times. It's too cute.

Hershey has learned to run away from Henry. Hershey loves his rawhides...and so does Henry. Any time Hershey is chewing on one and Henry takes a step towards him, Hershey gets up and goes to a different part of the room. 

He's finally grown accustomed to his new bathtub. He has a good ol' time in there, splashing away. 

Sleeping has been fabulous. I can't even remember when he last woke up in the middle of the night.

He wears 9-12 month jammies and shirts, and 6-9 month pants/shorts. 12 month bottoms are still a bit too long on his short little legs. Although, there are plenty of tiny 6 month Carter onesies that still fit him.

I've already started thinking about his birthday party. Ideas for themes are being accepted now :)
