Nine Month Baby Update

Good morning, Happy Tuesday!

Lincoln just had his 9 month wellness check last week, so I wanted to give a quick update!  We are a few weeks late because his pediatrician was out of town, but better late than never. He is doing great and is growing up so fast! 



One thing we are having trouble with this month is eating. Lincoln HATES textures. Even if his food is slightly chunky, he throws it up or just holds it in his mouth and gags. I have a baby bullet, so I try to puree things as smooth as I can... but he is going to have to eat real food eventually, right?!

We have tried cottage cheese, blending chicken with a softer veggie, etc. Any tips from other mamas out there? Did anyone have the same problem?

Weight on 7/21/16:
20 lbs. 11.5 oz (62nd percentile) 

Height on 7/21/16:
31 inches (99th percentile, he is still very tall!)

Head circumference:
18.25 inches (80th percentile)

Hair/eyes:
His hair has lightened a lot since he was born, and he still has a blonde streak in the back. He MUST be related to Elsa and Ana from Frozen... :)
His eyes are still blue, and I think they are going to stay blue.

Sleep:
He is a great sleeper. He sleeps 10-12 hours straight in his crib at night. He is teething, so over the past week or two, he has had a few nights where he woke up crying. He usually just needs to be held for a bit, then he will go right back down. 

Lincoln likes...
  • His toothbrush. Maybe we have a little dentist on our hands! He loves to hold it and bring it everywhere.
  • Being chased. Now that he can crawl, he loves it when you get on your hands and knees and chase after him. He especially loves it when you pop around the corner and surprise him!
  • Baths and swimming... he's a little water baby.
  • Pulling himself up on all of the furniture
  • Dancing. He flaps his arms and kicks his legs. Its quite adorable!!
  • Rattles. He loves to shake them so hard that his face turns red. He gets really into it.
Lincoln does NOT like...

  • Being set down
  • When we take things away from him
  • When he can't hold something he wants
  • Chicken. He spits it up every single time. The doctor said to just keep trying it every week, so we will see. The other day, he ate a few bites and right when he was about to throw it up, I reached out and caught it in my hands! #momlife #itssoglamorous 
Other fun facts:
  • He can say both dada and mama. He doesn't know what they mean, but its still fun to hear!
  • He had his first eye doctor appointment yesterday. 
  • He is in size 3 diapers and size 12 month clothes.
  • I am starting to plan his first birthday party... I can't even believe it!
I have had three people ask me how old he was this week, and they all replied "Ohhhh, you're just getting to the fun part!" I totally have to agree with them. He is FUN. He is laughing, playing, and interacting more and more every day.

Thats all for today! XOXO!!

Simply, Chelsea
