Happy Nine Months, Jimmie!

A little late this month, but I was waiting for Jimmie’s official weight at his 9 month appointment. Jimmie’s doctor said he is doing great and he is meeting all of his milestones, even though he isn’t crawling yet. (Which basically worries me every second of every day….CRAWL, JIMMIE!!!)

Favorites: Laughing, bath time with his toys, drinking water from a sippy cup, looking out the front window at the snow.

Weight: 21.9 pounds an 29 inches tall. He is in the 70% percentile for both height and weight. Jimmie is wearing a lot of 12 months clothing.

Firsts this month: First finger foods, first puffs, first time rolling a ball back and forth, first time drinking water from a sippy cup.

Nightly sleep schedule:  We finally figured out that Jimmie needs to go to bed earlier. He would always fuss himself to sleep until we started putting him to sleep between 7 and 7:15. Baby boy likes to sleep until 7 AM or later. Yes, I know, angel child. We are very, VERY lucky.

Favorite toy: Vtech Sit to Stand Learning Walker – he doesn’t walk with it yet, but he loves to sit and play with the buttons or stand holding on (with my help.) Playskool Busy Poppin’ Pals Toy – Jimmie LOVES to open and close things. He can close all of these but is still a bit confused on how to open them.

Hardest moment of the month: Teething is still hard. Jimmie got tooth number 5. We’re just waiting on number 6 now.

Best moment of the month: Jimmie laughing at things that he thinks are funny, not just when you tickle him. For example, he thought it was hilarious when I fed the animals at the petting zoo.

I made Jimmie stay up past his bedtime to take these photos. He wasn’t a happy camper, but he enjoyed eating his sticker. All in a day’s work.

    George hasn’t rolled from his back to his front yet, and I worry that he is behind. But then I think, he will do it in due time and try not to stress to much and enjoy this time where he isn’t that mobile!

      Jimmie wouldn’t roll from belly to back for a long time and didn’t start doing it regularly until recently. He still sometimes gets stuck on his side. BUT He started to semi army crawl yesterday! We are finally moving forward, literally. And you’re exactly right, I eventually gave up on trying to make him crawl. I figured he would do it, and now he does. Today I caught him eating Toby’s toy!
