Scout // 9 Months

Once again, I am four days late on my post but this time I was actually able to get stats from Scout's doctor's appointment. Scout is 39 weeks which means he has been in the outside world now longer than he was inside (he surprised us at 38 weeks). The second child seems to go so much faster. I am sad to admit, I failed to get his picture taken with the Easter bunny for his first Easter. I do feel really bad about it but hopefully he will forgive me.

Scout is all over the place now, trying to walk and keep up with Sawyer. It is crazy how quickly they become mobile! He is still super happy with such a joyful disposition, this boy is always smiling!

Sawyer was quite a bit smaller and this age, we were trying to figure out why he wasn't getting enough milk. Once we figured that out, he starting to bulk up. Sawyer was talking and moving a little bit more, but still very close.

Scout 9 Month stats

weight: 19 lbs 9 oz. (48.5 percentile) - at 8 months he was 18 lbs 6 oz.  

height:  28.5 inches (56.7 percentile) - at 8 months he was 27.5

clothing: 9-12 months,  12 month. Wears size 2-3 shoes

diapers: Size 3 - same as last month

eating: Still nursing and eating everything that is allowed. Able to try more table food options as well. He just tried cottage cheese, shredded cheese, beans and yogurt. He still isn't a huge fan of the meats but when we mix it with other veggies, he likes it. Grandpa even let him try a little ice-cream!

sleeping: Still sleeping great and sleeping from about 7:30 - 6 a.m. We have noticed about 2-3 nights out of each month he gets a little fussy and will walk up but it seems to be linked to teething and/or new milestones (crawling, standing, etc.)

teething: 2 little bottom teeth popped up about 4 days after his 8-month birthday.

other updates: He really wants to walk! He has been standing and letting go without even realizing it. He loves his jumper and walker, especially when we go outside. One thing his Parents as Teacher rep was impressed with was his ability to hold on and then lean down to pick items up as well as his pincher grasp (using the index finger and thumb to pick up small objects). He does great picking up small food items, like puffs or cereal, and even small blocks. He is still only saying "dada" and "hi" but no "mama" yet. I swear he says "hi doggie" too while looking out the window at Bowie.

Here are a few more photos from the month:
