Braden's Checkup

Today was your 9 month check up and you are progressing wonderfully! Here are your current measurements at 9 months & 1 week old:

Weight: 21 lbs 5 1/2 oz - 61%

Height: 29 1/4" - 73%

Head Circum.: 18 cm - 61%

At 9 months old you are:

Crawling like crazy and you hit the power boast button when you know we are after you to get away from wherever you are on a mission to go, like the dog kennel, the round-studded coffee table, and the cable cord behind the television, are just some of your favorites.

You definitely have a Temper. I thought this started at two years old, but I was wrong and when you get mad you throw your head back while kicking and screaming. Its amazing at how smart you are already. You know what you want and when you want it.

Mama's, Dada's, Baba's are all in your vocabulary at this point. You also know the meaning of the words baby, light, and NO! You will look for the baby on the Gerber jar, or when asked where the light is you look up in any room to find it.

You love the Water, including bathtime and the pool! You like eating the bubbles in the tub, and sticking your face in the fountains at the neighborhood pool.

Your favorite Television Shows/Movies are Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Special Agent Oso, Handy Manny, Wonder Pets (which Daddy can NOT stand), and Baby Einstein's DVDs.

You clap your hands, dance, sing or yell your own little tunes, give kisses, wave hi (still working on this one, but getting better), blow bubbles, and make truck sounds with your lips.

You still have NO teeth, but it will be ANY time now. You show all the signs, and I can feel those little tooth buds right under the gums.

You are trying most of the foods that Daddy and I eat these days. You love fresh guacamole and beans from our favorite Mexican food restaurant, but you are still on a strict baby food diet as well.

You amaze us everyday with the silly things you manage to do and how your development increases dramatically with each day that passes.

Well, I could go on and on about all the little things that you do that I love, but you are whining for me to pick you up at the moment. Mommy rarely has time to update her blog while at home for this very reason, but its all so worth it.

Goodnight my sweet angel, I love you forever & always.

He is bigger than Ethan at 15 months!!! Of course, Ethan is in the 6th percentile for weight. He is so cute and it sounds like he has reached the fun, playful stage. I love it!!

sO CUTE!! I take Karter next week for her 9 month check up and I can't wait to see how much she weighs!! We still need to get together with these kids!! =)

Tiffany: How much does Ethan weight? I think they start to lose a little weight or just stay the same around a year bc they are just so much more active, is that right? LOL! Who knows I'm no expert! But, we took him to the pool and there was this little girl who looked Braden's age, but she was a YEAR old! He was taller and more developed I think, but I could just be a little biasis ;)

Kristin: I KNOW!! One of these days we'll make it happen, for sure! I'm already thinking of Braden's 1st Birthday...any ideas? What did you girls do for your kiddos 1st?
