On Sunday Jack turned 9 months old.
Yesterday he had his 9 month well visit.
He measured up at:
24.5 pounds (95th percentile)
31'' (95th+ percentile)
Basically, what we have all known is yet again, proven true.
We have almost completely finished the transition from purees to solid foods.
He loves black beans, cheese, ground turkey, peas, and bananas.
He sleeps from 8pm to 8 or 9am.
Takes 2 naps (a morning and an afternoon).
And LOVES playing with his toys and in his bounceroo!
He still continues to use his army crawl as his primary source of movement, but has begun to attempt a "traditional" crawl, before he gives up because it takes too long.
He is pulling himself up on every surface he can get his hands on.
He is cruising along the furniture, and even tries to let go and stand. That never ends well...
We are getting more and more used to the bumps and bruises that come along with mobility.
He is tough and never cries for more than a second when he falls or bumps his head.
He loves to stare at other children/babies.
When we are at the park or the store or wherever you can spot another kid, he cranes his neck to be able to watch their every move!
He has started to play shy when a stranger approaches him.
He will bury his face into John or I's shoulder then look up, smile, hide his face, repeat.
He is a total ham and plays it up for anyone and everyone!
