Grady & Wren: 9 Months

Grady's Stats: 17 lbs 1 oz / 26.5 inches
Normal Growth Chart: 4th percentile for weight, 4th percentile for height

Wren's Stats: 18 lbs 7 oz / 27 inches
Normal Growth Chart: 40th percentile for weight, 27th percentile for height

Grady's Clothing & Diaper Size: Mostly 6-9 Month clothes and Size 3 diapers. 

Wren's Clothing & Diaper Size: Mostly 6-9 Month clothes and Size 3 diapers. 

Special Outings: We met Daddy for lunch at Old School Bagel after a morning trip to the mall on Friday, January 18.

On Saturday, January 27, you stayed overnight at Grammy & Granddad's house while Mom and Dad had a fancy night out at a gala with Jordan and Erin Page.

Milestones: Grady, on Wednesday, February 6, 2013, you got up on all fours for the first time. Now when you get up into the that position, you start to rock back and forth. We know lunging and crawling is in your very near future, but right now you just roll all around the living room and usually end up pinned under the couch or loveseat.

Wren, you have figured how to get cheerios, gerber puffs, or plain cooked pasta into your mouth when we place those foods on your high chair tray. Grady, you can pick these foods up and hold them in your hands but none of it connects with your mouth just yet.

My Thoughts: Your 9 Month well-child visit was Tuesday, February 12, 2013 and as we checked out of the pediatrician's office, I had to schedule your 1 Year appointment! How did that happen!? I just don't know how I am going to wrap my mind around this enough to begin planning your first birthday party! Thankfully I have a little time yet.

You two definitely keep your Dad and I busy, but you give us so much joy and are a constant source of entertainment. You are starting to interact with one another and laugh at the things each other does. I love watching you and after you've been put down for the night I find myself looking at pictures of you or staring at you while you sleep. Each time I rock and hold you I try to remind myself to savor the moment because I know they are fleeting. I just want to soak you up and never forget what you are like at this very moment in time.

These days our routine looks roughly like this:
6:30am Feed (bottle)
7:00am-9:15am Nap/Quiet Play
9:30am Feed (fruit & bottle)
10:00am-1:00pm Playtime/Tummy time/Cat naps
1:15pm Feed (bottle)
1:30pm-4:00pm Playtime/Tummy time/Nap
4:30pm Feed (veggies, fruit, & bottle)
5:00pm-7:00pm Playtime/Tummy time/Cat naps/Bath-time
7:00pm Feed (bottle)
7:30pm Bedtime

Favorites: Blowing raspberries, Ruby dog, all the new toys you got for Christmas, your sensory books, exploring faces, finding and holding your feet (same faves as last month)

Dislikes:  Getting your hands and faces wiped and having your noses sucked out with the Nose Frida.

This isn't a dislike for you, but for me and your Dad...Grady, you grind your top two teeth with your bottom two teeth and it makes a wretched sound. We always ask you to stop when we hear you doing it but you just look at us as if to say, "What??" 

Food:  Wren, you are still on the Sam's generic (Simply Right Sensitivity) of Similac Sensitive Formula for fussiness and gas. Grady, we moved you to Target's generic (Up & Up Infant Soy) of Similac Sensitive Isomil Soy Formula. You are both eating the following pureed/mashed foods: bananas, avocados, sweet potatoes, apples, peas, pears, carrots, butternut squash, acorn squash, zucchini, green beans, prunes, and raisins.
