Ah! A baby and his great-grandmother. Classic!

9 Months Old

August 26, 2010 Leave a comment

Last Monday, Noah turned 9 months old!   Wow.  How time has flown!

Our biggest achievement, of course, has been the crawling.  Of course he decided to wait until the day after he turned 9 months to take the leap!  Stubborn 🙂  It really won’t be long before he starts walking.  He can do it already with help.

At our 9 month visit on Friday, Noah weighed in at 20.0 pounds and 27.5″ long.  He remains in the 50th percentile for weight, 75th percentile for his head and jumped to the 90th percentile for length.  Go Noah Go!

We continue to make his baby food at home and some of the new foods he has eaten has been Kabocha squash, Tahini, Okra and Kale.  Interestingly enough, he loved them all!  Before he turns 10 months, we will have introduced beans, chicken pork and beef.

Noah continues to talk more and more and its funny because his babbling seems to be taking on more of the sound of words, although that first word has not yet come.

We have grown into our 12 month clothes, but will probably be in 18 month clothes by the end of September!

Noah has made lots of friends between the weekly library Mother Goose time and our Mom2Mom group at a local church.  It’s been good for Noah and Mommy.

The only other thing that we are doing so far is the “crying it out” at night.  As you remember, Noah has never slept well.  He continues to wake up multiple times a night and we were instructed by our pediatrician to increase the length of his cry time from 15 to 30 minutes.  So even though we still wake up with every cry, we are able to sleep through the 30 minutes and Noah has (knock on wood) gone back to sleep by himself each time.

Each day is such a blessing and we are in awe with each new thing that he does.

We love sharing our experiences with you – our family and friends!

Finally:  Here are some pictures!
