*Crawling ALL over
*Pulling up but not regularly
*Lots of ba-ba, da-da, ma-ma ETC
*He has tiny feet!! How is he going to learn how to balance and walk on those things!?
*Naps like a superstar
*Still wants to nurse in the middle of the night, sadly. (The doctor said anytime I want to cut him off would be good and she said hopefully within a month he should be done for the sake of better sleep and his teeth)
*He has 6 teeth (the girls had ONE tooth a little after 12 months old- 9 months adjusted age)
*Solids are hit and miss
-Favorite solids: pureed fruits (peaches, blueberries, apples, pears), carrots, yogurt mixed with fruit, sweet potato, finger foods (Cheerios, yogurt melts, bread, deli turkey, sometimes cheese), and avocado.
-Dislikes: all of the above depending on his moods, most veggies, oatmeal/rice cereal unless it is mixed with fruit or juice, banana (the only baby ever to dislike banana!), and pureed meat (who can blame him?).
Overall I call him a finicky eater when it comes to solids, but totally into nursing still.
*He understands some words. When we ask where Odin is he looks for him (and daddy/mommy).
*Still very pleasant but stranger danger is creeping in and is a momma's boy.
*Gets a KICK out of watching his sisters, especially when they dress up in animal costumes
I did a 9 month photo shoot with Will today. There are so many cute ones so I have to share a handful of them! He is the best subject, especially when he's in an ultra-good mood!
A couple nights ago we had a book fair/carnival at the girls' Preschool. The girls insisted that it was a costume party and all the kids would be dressed up. There was nothing about costumes on the flyer so I was 95% sure they had it wrong. Because I tend to pick my battles, I let them dress up in animal costumes to it. Of course, we show up and the girls were the only ones in costume! The teachers and parents got a good laugh out of it. It reminded me of the G rated version of the scene in Bridget Jones' Diary where she shows up as a bunny to a non-costume party (Except the girls had absolutely no shame unlike Bridget.) Actually, same thing on Legally Blonde too- haha! It turns out the girls were talking about their costumes to the teacher and she said they can dress up at school... for Halloween.
