Max is 9 months old, only 3 more months until he is a year. How crazy is that? Let the party planning begin!
He just went for his check up on Monday so these are pretty current stats.
Stats-Weight: 18 lb 2 oz (13%) Height: 27 1/2" (24%) Head Circumference: 17 3/4" (43%)
He knows he shouldn't be trying to get on all the furniture and touch the TV so he looks at me and makes silly noises. He has pulled up in his crib (to at least his knees) to grab the video monitor and pull it down. I normally don't miss a thing while watching him so I know its going to happen and have to go intervene. He has just started standing in his crib (usually in the morning when he wants to get out and I'm still getting ready). He is still standing/walking with assistance mostly on his toes so hopefully he will grow out of that soon.
Max loves to swing. His facial expressions are great. Sometimes he doesn't make a peep but will do small giggles to himself.
He's a silly little boy who loves to say dadada still and loves to goof around with Daddy.
David makes all kinds of noises and faces at him especially at dinner. They are so cute together.
He has a push cart walker thingy to help him stand and walk, but he just likes to stand in front of it and get things out of the basket. I think it goes too fast for him so he just likes standing up on it. He looks like such a big boy in real clothes. I love the jeans.
We picked up a bunch of new clothes as its getting colder at Macy's this weekend (they were having a great sale). Thanks to Grandpa John, I'm ready for winter!
Eating- He still loves real food, anything from chicken, ground beef, steamed veggies, macaroni, you name it. We try to give him a little of what we have for dinner if its suitable to go along with his baby foods. He is great at gumming his food and chewing with his few teeth. He enjoys the challenge. Dr. Susan says he can now have 3 meals and 3 snacks throughout the day. We usually give him banana pieces in the morning to hold him from his morning bottle until breakfast. This kid loves to eat at any time.
He naps pretty good still. His morning and afternoon naps range from 1 hour, 1.5 hours or even 2. Sometimes we get the unlucky 1/2 hour nap but we really can't complain.
He's so crazy that he can't sit still, he is always going, going, going. I think that's why he can't put any weight on, he never sits still. This is going to be fun on the plane Saturday :) Exhibit A above.
Such a silly, happy boy!
- He is in size 9 month with some clothes and he can fit in to 12 month as well but they are just a little big.
-Size 3 diapers (we went with pampers cruisers since that's what they have now at Sams and they are great).
He is still liking books, but mostly just to point, pull and bang on them. He likes the musical ones, those hold his attention for a bit longer.
-His hair is definitely getting fuller (and blonder). He wakes up with crazy bed head sometimes, which is adorable.
-He still loves playing with his hot wheels cars, he has started to move the cars and make car noises as he moves them (I'll have to try to video it). He goes babababb. I think he started doing it because I would go vrooom vroom and move the car.
Here is just a couple random pics of Max being Max. He loves to play and get into trouble. Trouble is definitely his middle name, well his middle name is really David, but David is also trouble so it fits.
