Liam is 9 months old

My baby is 9 months old today. How can this be?? In 3 short months he will be a one year old! Time is going so fast and Liam is growing and learning so much. It is so rewarding to watch him.

SLEEP

Since we did sleep training in April Liam has been sleeping through the night. I am just amazed at how easy the training was and how good he is doing with sleep. It is truly a blessing for someone who loves sleeping (me!).

EAT

Liam is still eating baby food. He eats all kinds. He has no real preference or dislikes. He pretty much eats them all. He has tried cut up bananas and loves that. He also enjoys eating puffs. He has tried eggs and avocado as well. He tried a textured but smooth puree but wasn’t that into it. I will try this one again soon.

MOVEMENT

Liam has been speed crawling every where. This kid is quick! He just cruises around the house. He did bring himself to standing twice in his crib and then fell both times. This must have scared him because he will only bring himself to his knees now. He can stand on his own holding on to something as well.

TEETH

Liam still only has the two teeth. He has been acting like he is working on more lately but I can’t see any evidence of teeth coming. Plus he hates when I try to look in his mouth.

ACTIVITIES

Liam loves clapping his hands, doing “so big,” waving hi and bye, and banging his hand or toys on other objects to make noise. He enjoys yelling and at one point said “hubba” by accident. It was so cute that we are working on getting him to say it again! He recently just started giving kisses. He loves exploring and is so curious still. He has to check out every noise he hears.

Liam has started showing preferences for who he wants to be with. He will push away and reach out for the person he desires. He will do this for me, Joe, Kelly (his daycare provider), and my mom. Lately he really wants his dad and gets super excited when he gets home from work.

9 MONTH WELL BABY

Liam had his well baby appt today. He is 17 lbs and 12 oz (18%). He is 28 inches long (35%) and his head is 45 cm (50%). He is growing so much but is still my itty bitty baby! And little for his age! Below: in the waiting area at the dr office. He loved this toy!

  • bath time
  • knocking things over (like block towers)
  • sucking on his swaddle blanket
  •  banging toys together to make noise

Dislikes:
