Adam 9 Months
18 lbs 6oz 28” tall
As soon as this month began, Adam was on his feet. Right after the holidays, he was pulling himself up in his crib. Our first night home, we had to lower his crib for the second time in only a month. At first, he had no idea how to get back down once he was standing, and we had a few scary moments when he would bang his face on the crib bars. But he got the hang of a more graceful fall after only a few days. Marco and I could only watch, terrified, as he learned how to control this new and unstable ability.
He began pulling himself up on the furniture in the living room almost immediately. He even had a moment of balance (without holding onto anything). Once he mastered getting himself to a standing position with furniture aid, he would get bored when he was standing. So he figured out how to bring a toy up with him.
Crawling is at 100% this month. Hands & knees working together with his belly off the ground.
We are still doing very well with sleeping through the night and taking naps. We had a few wakeful nights and a couple skipped naps, but overall we have been on a pretty consistent schedule this month.
Still no words or teeth. But his new favorite sound to make is “Ooooo!”. He will pucker his lips and “Oooo” at anything new or interesting. It is super cute!
