How is Owen 9 months already? Where has the time gone!?! His personality is coming out in so many ways and he is just the happiest baby! He is a snuggler and mover all in one. He is one curious little guy taking in everything everywhere we go!
Owen is continuing to grow and still is skinny and long. I don’t have his exact measurements at this time though. He will get measured again at his 9 month appt next week.
Owen’s skin still occasionally flares up and we once again are struggling with a remedy for this.
Owen is still drinking breast milk. He is eating 4 times a day now.
Owen is still having 3 “meals” a day and he LOVES food. He has breakfast in the later morning, lunch in the afternoon, and dinner with us when we eat. He has tried pretty much all baby foods and enjoys them all. He is more interested in finger foods now and has tried all kinds of foods including avocado, banana, watermelon, sauteed peppers, cooked asparagus, cauliflower rice, and more. He has loved them all.
Owen has gotten really good at drinking his sippy cup so he has water with his meals and occasionally throughout the day if it’s hot out or he seems like he wants it.
Owen has been sleeping through the night. We are also at about 2-3 naps a day. We have a general nap pattern now that consists of a morning nap around 8-9 for about an hour and an afternoon nap usually around 12-1 ish for about 2 hours, and then if needed he takes a 3rd short nap in the evening.
Owen only has the two teeth still although I swear 4 more are on their way any day!
Owen is crawling everywhere! He is quick too. He is also pulling himself up to his knees on items. He hasn’t pulled himself to standing yet. He occasionally will go up on his feet while he is crawling.
He babbles “ma-ma” and “da-da” now.
Owen has learned to clap his hands, do “so big,” and give unlimited open mouth kisses.
Owen still adores Liam and crawls as quickly as he can to see what his brother is doing. Liam can make Owen giggle by doing the simplest things. It is adorable!
Owen is still pretty obsessed with me. He regularly prefers me but does do okay with other people or if I am not around he is fine too.
