It was also the most difficult month so far to get pictures. He is far too mobile. So we did our best!
He's had a really big month! As previously mentioned, he is mobile. He crawls like a champ! First a few steps at a time, crying each one with the effort. But now he moves from room to room with ease. He also pulls himself up and walks along furniture! He's a very curious little boy - loves to explore and discover things.
His primary food source is still breastmilk. However, we have started supplementing with formula for one or two bottles a day; work has been so crazy that I had to cut back on my pumping. He also eats 2-3 solid meals a day, mostly vegetable purees. He does love eggs, sweet potato, avocado, and banana. He also likes squash, applesauce, bread, cheerios, and puffs. He doesn't seem to like peaches, peas, or beans much. He often gets cereal mixed with milk and one of these items. We tried yogurt mixed with applesauce and cereal once, but he didn't seem to like it at all. I still make most of his food, but he also gets some store bought. Particularly in the meat blends since I haven't started pureeing that. He's had chicken and rice, turkey, and vegetable beef. He's also had a little chicken and turkey off my plate. He loves drinking water from his sippy cup!
He had his 9 month appointment yesterday and is doing great! Here are his stats:
Weight: 25 pounds, 6 ounces 95th percentile
Length: 28.75 inches 75th percentile
Head Circumference: 19 inches 97th percentile
He still babbles a lot, but no actual words.
He's got a wonderful disposition - easy to smile for people, sweet, cuddly, and just wonderful.
He went to Indiana this past month and while there went swimming for the first time! He wasn't sure what he thought about it!
