Our little “Cannon”ball is 9 months old.
This guy is a pool regular these days. There’s a reason why kids in Arizona learn to swim at such young ages – we start them in the pool pretty young.
He’s a solid boy weighing in at 19 lbs (50%) and 29 inches tall (95%). He’s built the most like Mr. B. We’re expecting him to be mobile any time now, but I’m not looking forward to it. It’s funny because your first kid you want them to hit all their milestones as quickly as possible – if they don’t they’re doomed to be in diapers forever. Then you have a couple kids and you’re grateful that they’re not crawling around because they’re much easier to keep an eye on when they just sit at your feet.
At nine months he’s still breastfeeding, although its growing more and more difficult as he gets older and easily distracted. Because of his height, all of his onesies and sleepers are 12-18 months and he’s still in a crib in the laundry room. He’s learned to drink from a straw and is getting better at getting food to his mouth, although right now he’s mastering “fist” eating.
Give me a couple weeks and I just may have manipulated his first words to be momma. There’s got to be some perks to staying home with the kid all day!
