I think this is the latest that I've ever been on writing a monthly post for baby Grant, but things have gotten pretty crazy with moving right on his 9-month birthday. He is getting very animated and is super busy these days. He is crawling all over my parent's house, and I'm sure he is going to be excited to explore the floors in our new house in a few days! I cannot believe that we only have three short months (even less now) until his first birthday.
*You weigh 18.5 pounds (17th%) and are 27.25 inches tall (16th%).
*Bedtime is around 7:30/8pm. You actually sleep better if we put you down at 7:30 versus 8pm, so we try to get you down earlier rather than later.
*You are still taking two naps, but your morning nap is only about an hour long (unless you are in the carseat, and then it's only about 15-45minutes)
*If you fall asleep in the car for your afternoon nap, we have to put you back down in your swing for the rest of your nap or else you won't fall back asleep.
*You still wake up around 7/7:30am wanting a bottle or to be up for the day. Most of the time, you will take a bottle and go back to sleep unless we have to be somewhere early.
*You have been doing a much better job sleeping in the pack n' play than you did when we first got to your Yeye and Edaddy's house.
*You have loved to play with the dog's food dish, and you REALLY love to play with their water dish, but we have to put it up away from you or you will soak yourself.
*Speaking of water, you have become such a water bug lately. You sit and splash and kick for hours in the pool. You are really enjoying your summer!
*You are a pro at eating your baby food now, and you have been eating three meals per most days while here at Yeye's and Edaddy's house. You also love the squeeze pouches and can feed them to yourself.
*You stopped fake gagging when eating soft foods now, and you actually enjoy eating puffs. You've also eaten mac n' cheese noodles and seemed to like it.
*You still drink a ton of milk (8 ounces every few hours).
*Your 6-month sleepers are officially too small for you. You are wearing mostly 9-month and 12-month clothes.
*We officially moved you to size 3 diapers this month.
*You still have NO TEETH :) Both of your sisters had at least two teeth by this point, baby Grant!
*Both of your sisters really love you, and they love to play with you. Alli calls you "baby boy", and Lila calls you "baby Grant". I think you'll be "baby" forever.
*You still startle so easy, are so ticklish, and can laugh hysterically if we play peek-a-boo or scare you.
*You learned how to clap your hands this month.
*You love to crawl to Yeye's toes.
*You are starting to crawl up on your hands and knees.
