Brady- 9 months
December 15 was too close to Christmas for me to stop and do a monthly post, so I’m very late..but here’s what Brady’s been up to lately.
Here’s what Brady has been up to this past month:
*He weighs 20lb 14 oz. & is 27 ½ in long. He’s very short, only in the 12 percentile.
*His eating habits have changed a little. We’re not putting cereal in all his bottles anymore, only his nighttime bottle. He usually has 4 bottles a day. He can now have meats, and the doctor told us he can start having table food, but I’m not starting all that just yet. I want him to be a healthy eater so we’re sticking to baby food for as long as I can make him eat it.
*He doesn’t spit up very much anymore so we’ve stopped the Zantac.
*He crawls everywhere, sits up like a champ, and pulls up on everything. He can even stand on his own but hasn’t taken a step on his own yet.
*He can clap.
*He can wave (when he wants to).
*He can climb!
*He’s very brave. He’ll go to anyone that holds their arms out and he’ll crawl anywhere, even dark rooms.
*He’s got to be the hardest kid ever to get dressed. He likes to crawl around naked after he has a bath. The bad thing is that he’ll pee on the floor or on whoever is holding him while he’s naked (he’s done it to me twice.)
*He’s starting to say the da-da sound. He doesn’t know what’s he’s saying, but he’s at least making the sound.
*He still hates to wear shoes and isn’t big on socks either.
* *He has 5 teeth. (3 on bottom & 2 on top)
*He is a pretty good sleeper.
**It’ pretty easy to make him laugh. He’s always happy.
* He wears 12-18 month clothes.
*He’s wearing a size 3 diaper.
*He loves his bathes.
*He’s still attached to his pacifier.
*He loves to be on the floor. He usually doesn’t want to be held.
*He loves to watch Wheel of Fortune! It’s the funniest thing, but he’ll stop what he’s doing to watch Wheel of Fortune.
*He is a very curios (or noisy) baby.
*He has the goofiest smile and expressions.
*He’s doing so well riding in the car now. It sure makes going places much more pleasant.
*Everyone always asks me is he always in a good mood, and he usually is. He’s getting to where he cries when you walk out of the room.
*His eyes are still blue.
*His hair is starting to get longer. It’s really frizzy. His hair is still very light.
*He has no problem at all with letting you know that he’s unhappy. He can throw some major fits.
*He is very impatient! He will through a major fit if you tell him no. And he’s also making the funniest face when you tell him no. He’ll open his mouth real wide like “no you didn’t”.
*He loves to look at himself in the mirror.
Here’s Brady this month.
