Charlie turned nine months old last week (can you even BELIEVE I've waited this long to post this? Well, believe it......mama's busy). And to mark such a special occasion, he even had the nerve to cut his front teeth on top. Total defiance. Growing older AND changing all at once. But darn it, he's so dang cute. So, he can totally get away with it. This time. Here are his super official nine month photos. Feeling rather deep and nostalgic on his nine month birthday. Hmmmmmmm........is dat a biwrd out der? Or is dat a cat? Oh wait, maybe is just a flower.......gots to learn some new words and stuff. Maybe some flash cards would help.......
Now he's feeling more like himself.
Some fun facts about Charlie at nine months:
*He just cut two more teeth on top, bringing him to a grand total of four.
*He's still big time into table food, but he has a definite allergy to soy (which, btw, is in EVERYTHING. For real.), and has reacted to the acid in tomatoes and has had some mixed results with peas. So, I'm going to hold off on peanut butter for a bit until we can sort out some of these allergies.
*He finally rolls over and scoots around. I was starting to worry about this kid. But, some tough love and baby boot camp have proven quite effective. He now gets around and is making me crazy paranoid about all the stuff I have to re-baby proof. Geeze. Harv is really good about alerting me when Charlie is in danger. "Charwie, what do you have buddy?". Or, even better, "Charwie, NO SIR!" (you think Harv has heard that a few times in life??) That's how I know, I need to stop making dinner/drinking water/going to the bathroom/sending a text message and go figure out what he has going on. :)
*He sleeps like a champ still. Even with his two teeth coming in, he wasn't all that bad.
*Charlie had his first real illness just before he turned nine months old. He had an ear infection, likely from a virus that the kids passed around plus his teeth coming in. So, first round of antibiotics in the books. Fortunately, he wasn't allergic to that.
*He is a blanket and passy lover. I really wish he would suck his thumb, but the passy (upside down) is totally his thing. Whatever makes him happy, I guess.
*It looks like he's going to have some curly locks. If that ends up being true, I want him to grow a sweet little fro. Perhaps no haircuts for a little while. :)
*Sizes: Clothes/sleeper:18 months. Shoes:Size 4, I think. Diapers: Size 4.
*One last fun fact: he wants to sit up, all the time. Including bottle time. It's like bottle feeding a calf. Pretty amazing.
We'll have official height and weight type stats next week when we go to the doctor. Should be a good time!
After you're done here....
