9 MONTHS OLD!
I feel like so much has changed in the past month. His eating and sleeping pattern is still the same as last month. He will nearly always have 3 meals a day but sometimes it's still two. He still has 5 bottles in 24 hours with one in the night. He will drop it when he's ready, I'm in no rush.
He still regularly tests his balance and lets go while standing up. He can do a few seconds on his own but he has to really want to do it. This month he started taking a few steps with his walker which was exciting. Paige could already stand unaided for 30-60 seconds at 9 months and took her first unaided steps at 9 months and 6 days old. I don't think Parker will do the same, thank goodness! But I do wonder when he will take those first steps.
Another exciting thing is that on Mothers Day he said Mama for the first time. Perfect timing baby boy! He also started waving in the past month too. So cute. He babbles all the time, non stop.
He cut another few teeth this month, 3 more in fact! He now has 3 of his top 4.
He is still baby led and hasn't had puree's in 2 months now. His favourites are toast and strawberries, although he will eat pretty much everything.
He was weighed at his pre year check up and was 21lbs at just over 8 months old. He's 75th percentile for his age so smaller than Paige was at the 95th percentile but still bigger than average. He's in 9-12m clothes.. The waist on trousers are always too big for him even though he is a chubby little monkey. He can also fit some 12-18m clothes!
He is such a loving little boy. A real mummy's boy. He is so cheeky and particularly loves wires, naughty boy. He still adores Paige. He also likes biting toes, random!
