9(1/2) Month Update!

Weight: 17lbs 9oz
Height: 27 1/4 ins

If you saw Giovanni's last update, you maybe surprised about his weight. I was too, but when they weighed him at 8 months, I remember thinking they didn't wait fully to when the numbers stop moving on the scale.  This time they did. So, no he didn't loose any weight. And I have no doubts that our little man is growing perfectly. He's in 6/9 months clothes, but still wears a couple of 3/6 month pants (he has a tiny waist) He's moved up to size three diapers too. It's weird having both boys in the same size diaper..

This month has sparked a huge interest in toys in him. Oh sure he would play with a rattle or gnaw on a car, but now he is really interested in playing with the toys. Which is perfect since he has a bunch of new toys from Christmas. Unless he's tired, he prefers not to cuddle, he'd rather be down on the floor playing or walking around in his walker. And boy does he move it that! And Even though he's not walking, just worm crawling, he gets into everything! He's still sleeping great at night and he is finally back to taking 2 naps a day. He really is a great baby!

-Pulled to a stand! 12/13/2011.. hasn't really done it since.

-Cut his 3rd & 4th tooth! (3rd on 12-8 & 4th on 12-28)

-Celebrate his first Christmas!

-Plays peekaboo if he has a blanket in his hands

-`A stuffed Mickey Mouse (he sleeps with it)
-His Walker
-Biter biscuits & puffs
-All his new toys from Christmas

-Being idle in the car
-Mum mums (he'd rather scratch them together than eat them)

Giovanni has finally decided he's ready for more solid food, other than once a day. Right now he eats solids twice a day. And usually it's when we're eating. He is super interested in what we are having, especially at dinner, so we have been giving him small bites our what we are having, and he's loving it! With the pick up of solids, his nursing feedings have dropped off a little and he will go longer between sittings.

Picture Time:

A side by side monthly comparison picture. He's grown so much!

And for fun, a side by side comparison of Dominic & Giovanni both at 9 1/2 months.

  1. Hello! I found your blog through Harriet and Friends, and her "Tuesday Friend & Follow". Your kids are so, so, so precious!! Mine are 13, 12, 6, & 5, and I've got a serious case of Baby Fever! I wish I'd had the forethought to take pictures of my kids when they were little, but alas, I did not. Not many, at least. Ah, well. Hindsight, right?

  2. Soooo adorable! LOVE the onesies you are using. I haven't decided how I am going to do the month to month this time around. I can't believe it's been 3 weeks already!! First son I didn't do month to month pics, I was taking pics so often anyway it didn't cross my mind to have a actual monthly pic done LOL
