The Busy Giffs: 9 Months in, 9 Months Out!

9 Months in, 9 Months Out!


I can't believe it's been 9 months!
He's been outside in the world as long as we've known we were having him!

Growth:

We had little man's doctor appointment and is a whopping 18 lbs 8 oz and 29 inches! The doctor was very happy because his weight is now in the 25th percentile, instead of the 10th like it was at his 6 month appointment.

Looks:

Longer, curlier, red hair! I think I'm going to try and hold off until June for his first haircut so he can have it done at Disney!
He's constantly walking around with some sort of bump or bruise because he has no fear and will just topple!
His perma-grin is always there too!



Firsts and Milestones:

We have lots of supported walking and will even stand unsupported for 2 or 3 seconds before crouching back down. 
There are 2 teeth now! Both bottom teeth have popped through the top right is making it's way through as well! We've been having some nursing/biting issues but hopefully it will be over soon!
"Mom" is absolutely the first word! <3


Sleep:

Crib is an every night thing and many nights he puts himself to sleep in the crib.  He will only sleep on his side or his belly, and will roll if you try and put him on his back.
He loves pillows, and will drop his whole head on to one if he sees it. Still waking at night to nurse but not nearly as much.


Food:

We're still breastfeeding! I'm a bit nervous about what going to Vegas will do to my supply (three whole days without him!) so we will most likely be introducing some formula soon.  I have about 100 oz in the freezer so hopefully we can do half and half when it comes time.
Otherwise, he's eating even more foods! This week has included cod, meatloaf, mashed potatoes, corn, applesauce, eggs, bacon, a potato chip (!), mandarin oranges, and some peanut butter on bread!
He is so open to trying foods!

Language:

"Maaaaaaa"
And I love it!
Otherwise, lots and lots of incoherent yells and babbles. He loves talking!


His favorites:

The animals. He chases them around the house and then "kisses" them, which really means he open mouth like bites them, but it's his kiss...
Pushing his walking toy around.
Having his head rubbed.
dancing to all music.
Sesame Street!
Falling asleep on mom or dad's chest.
Eating or playing with cell phones.
Taking baths! He will crwal to the tub, stand next to it and just start laughing! He splashes like crazy in the tub!

My favorites:

The laughter is the best! Whether it's to let me know he wants to take a tub, or he's laughing at Emma yelling "poopie", he is always so giggly!
