9 Months old!
(as of March 23, 2013)
21lbs 7oz 28 3/4″ 18″head
Nursing + teething= OUCH! Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. I had minimal issues with Jaidan biting me but you are quite the fiesty one. One night I couldn’t get you to latch without instantly chomping down. We were both in tears and I ended up giving you a bottle for bed while I pumped. It was so sad but you got better about biting me and it only lasted about a week.
And of course just last month I said you were not a marathon night nurser and this month you proved me wrong. Between you having some sort of vicious hunger and me having stomach problems (I think gallblader related) there were a few nights where I felt too sick to nurse you and daddy had to give you frozen milk. And you know what, I didn’t even feel bad about it. I guess that’s just how sick I was feeling with that burning pain in my stomach. 🙁 I’m so thankful for my freezer stash. I couldn’t imagine living pumping session to pumping session.
We had some rough nights this month. You have been a ‘teething demon’. On the 29th your top right tooth came through bringing your total number of teeth to 4. You screamed all night until daddy finally gave you tylenol and you zonked out.
This next picture cracks me up. Apparently, Jared took it upon himself to snap a picture of us sleeping because we all had the same arm up… not the most flattering , but SO funny! Hmmm, mine doesn’t look natural. I wonder if he moved my arm up by my face. Idk, I’ll have to go investigate that one, lol.
You forget you can roll over and after we change your diaper you are like ahhhh I can’t get up. Luckily Jaidan is a sweet big brother and helps you up.
And you have CURLS!!!
April 8th you started waving hi & bye! You also make the ‘h’ sound when you wave hi and make a short ‘die die’ sound for bye bye. I swear you will be an early talker with all this mimicking you do. You’ve also said ‘all done’. You repeat it after I say it and daddy Nana and Jaidan have all heard it too!
April 13th you started signing your first word! MILK
April 18th you started standing without holding on to anything… and you like to hold little sun heads too. (hehe)
You also started pointing!
Big Brother Jaidan:
Your sweet big brother Jaidan is definitely getting more comfortable with you. This month he has wrote on your face with pen, fish hooked you and tried to make you eat a piece of onion from the floor. Don’t worry, I’m sure by now you’ve already paid him back. 😛
Your 1st Easter:
We celebrated your 1st Easter by doing A Sense of the Resurrection. We didn’t get to do every lesson completely like I had hoped but what we were able to do was fun and I’m definitely looking forward to the coming years when we can do the studies more in depth.
