Jensen at 9 Months
Weight: 22lbs 10 ounces (85th percentile) - this is the least amount you've grown since we brought you home! I think you are finally slowing down a bit.
Height: 27 inches (50th percentile)
Teeth: 2 on the bottom and tiny bit popping through for one of your top teeth. I can also see several teeth that are soon to be coming through. I better cherish your gummy smile while I can.
Clothes: 12-18months, and some 24 months just because we have lots of great hand me downs for you
Shoe Size: 6-12 months or a size 3
Diaper Size: 4
First Word: Dada. Yep. All these days you've spent with me, and you decide to make Dada your first real word. I guess I understand, because he is pretty cool. I will sit there and say, "Mama, mmmm, mama, mama, mama, mama." You will smile and say, "Dada." Maybe next month.... Also if we are driving in the car and you are getting ready to go to sleep you will talk to your self with lots of nonsense words, fall asleep, then wake up later talking like you are finishing your last thought. Pretty silly.
Naps: usually 2 a day, around 10AM and 1:30 PM. You do great if you squeeze in just a 5-10 minute car nap in the evenings.
Bedtime: around 7:30 or 8 PM. You typically wake up at least once in the night...sometimes twice...and then are awake around 7:30 or 8 AM.
Nursing: usually 5-6 times a day depending on if you wake up at night.
Meals: 3 meals and 2 snacks a day. This month you have been feeding yourself more finger foods. This morning I for breakfast I gave you a bunch of thawed mixed berries and you loved it. You also made the biggest mess so I ended up having to bathe you right there in the sink.
Finally my favorite thing about you: Your thighs. Sigh. I can't even. I just squish them all day long. They are perfect. I'm sad to hide them under pants as the weather turns colder. I hope they stay chubby for a long, long time.
