9 Months

Brody is 9 months. Seriously, where has the time gone? He is my little love bug who makes each day better. I laugh a lot more now that Mr. Personality is in my life. And he makes our lives so much more full and complete. We could not love him more, our hearts are overflowing with love for our sweet angel baby.

Weight 18 lbs 1 oz (12%)
Height 26 3/4 inches (7%)

He gets smaller and smaller (according to the averages) each time we go to the doctor. I was sure this time he was going to have increased percentages! Wrong!! My child can E-A-T! We are giving him too many liquids and will need to begin to cut back a little. The goal is 24 ounces and now he is eating around 30 ounces, plus the 3 huge solid meals that he already eats and cheerios/puff snacks. We will be introducing the sippy cup more regularly now that we should begin phasing out the bottle. He hit all the "9 month milestones" except for waving and clapping. Brody is extremely interested in table food and I got to ok to let him have some. I had my list of questions that our doctor so graciously answered them all and never made me feel rushed. With a little peer pressure, I caved and Brody was given the 1st dose of the H1N1 vaccination. I told myself I wasn't going to let my baby have something so fresh and new, but I am now eating my words.

Mommy and daddy love you so very much. These last nine months have been the best 9 months of our lives. You are so handsome and full of energy. You are a very happy baby and extremely tough. Your fun-loving personality shines so bright and is infectious. Everyone who meets you falls in love with you and always has so many compliments for you. You are the light of our lives.
Mommy and Daddy
