Here we are again with another Gabriel monthly recap! Time is flying!!
9 month checkup stats:
Weight: 19lbs 2 oz/ 32%
Head: 18”/ 61% (he’s so smart)
Eating: Loves breakfast sausage and hot dogs (Applegate nitrate free are awesome!), tears up baby food like it’s his job. He will literally eat anything you give him, peas, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, green beans, bananas, pears, apples….the only reaction we’ve seen is to peaches. He had a diaper rash for a few days. We will revisit peaches again later.
Sleeping: We are in the heart of teething so sleeping is literally a 50/50 shot. He has some really great nights of uninterrupted sleep, some mediocre nights where he’ll wake up and stay up for a while watching his crib aquarium (Baby Einsteins Sea Dreams Soother), and rare nights where only mommy’s arms will do.
Playing: Everything is a toy. EVERYTHING. The dog’s water bowl, tiny pieces of paper, fuzzies, shoes, pretty much anything mommy and daddy don’t want him to touch. So when we say “No touch!”, he cries like we took away his favorite blankie (which he doesn’t have any attachment issues, YET!).
Teeth: 1! One little tooth popped through this month!
Our little buddy is so squishy and lovable. The PERFECT baby when we go out, especially if he’s snuggled up in the Ergo. He loves people (girls) from a distant, but his stranger danger anxiety is strong. It takes him a little while to warm up, but then you can get closer to him, and eventually even touch him!
Gabriel’s 1st birthday party planning is in effect! (queue the crying) You can follow along on Pinterest for some ideas! Narrowing the theme to 2 options: beach vibes or fox & friends (woodland creatures). Also in the works is Isabella’s 3rd birthday! Seriously guys. Time is flying and my babies are growing up!
