:Henry: 9 Months:

Eating: Henry loves food. He likes to feed himself anything he can and he will eat purees now. He loves fruit, some meat and lots of vegetables. He likes toast, pancakes, waffles, yogurt, cheerios, strawberries, watermelon, cucumber, asparagus, broccoli, carrots. Pretty much everything! He doesn't really like blueberries (the skin), and he is picky about chicken.

He still nurses 5x a day and multiple times at night.

Sleeping: Night time has been a struggle this month with colds and teething. He wakes 2-4x a night. Maybe next month we can work on sleeping?!

Naps are still pretty good-- 2 per day ranging from 1.5-2.5 hours.

Diapers: Size 3, although he has to be doubled up at night because he pees a lot.

Weight/Size: Henry hasn't been weighed recently so I'm not sure how much he weighs. Given how much he eats, I'm sure he has gained at least a pound or two though, so around 19lbs.

He is wearing mostly 6-12 months clothes. His mocs are size 2.

Hair and eyes: Dark brown/black hair, and hazel eyes. I think his hair is getting lighter though.

Personality: Henry is a pretty content baby, unless he is tired or hungry. He is so observant, looking around at everything around him.

Nicknames: Baby Henry, Litte Man.

Likes: Everything he isn't allowed to have. Getting into the pantry, his siblings toys, cars, magazines, book.

Dislikes: Being contained, having things taken away from him, falling on the hardwood.

Milestones: Henry is crawling everywhere. Baby gates are up! We also had to lower his crib as he now stands up in his crib and I caught him almost falling out one day when I put him down for a nap.

He has 4 bottom teeth and four top teeth now- he cut 2 top teeth this month.

Mama: Henry is at such a fun age but it's a lot of work keeping up to him. He gets into everything- the pantry, the cupboards, any room that the door hasn't been shut to-- everything! It is so fun watching him explore the world around him. He is such a happy baby and is pretty content being dragged around. I do miss tiny Henry but I like that he is a bit more independent and I can leave him for a few hours.

Big Sister & Big Brother: Henry has the best big sister and brother he could ask for! They both adore him. He is fun for them now too, even if they sometimes get upset that he gets into their things. 

Misc: We celebrated Henry's "Out As Long As He Was In" Day-- 40 weeks + 3 days.


We love you so much, Henry! It's a joy to watch you grow.
