9 Months

Charlie- you are 9 months old!


Here's what you're up to these days...

  • You weigh 17 lbs 14 oz (10th percentile) and you're 28 inches long (50th percentile).
  • Your first tooth just popped through on Thursday!
  • You crawl (fast!) everywhere, and pull up all the time. You're just starting to think about cruising, but usually fall as soon as you move your feet. You also like to do baby yoga and get up on straight legs.


  • You learned to climb up the stairs last week.
  • You say bye bye (while waving) and more (sometimes).
  • You are a terrible sleeper! You usually take two 1 hr naps a day and go to bed at 7 pm, but get up at least 3 times (usually more- many more) a night. We're working on it! :)
  • You're a total Nuk pacifier baby. I think it's cute, but I'm not looking forward to breaking you of the habit one day!


  • Even though you're tiny, you're a great eater! You still nurse every 3ish hours during the day and eat two meals of food. You'll eat baby food,  but are happier to eat tiny pieces of "real" food. It's nice to just give you what we're having!
  • You have the biggest, most beautiful blue eyes!

  • You suddenly have MAJOR stranger anxiety, and cling to mama like nobody's business. At your doctor check up the doctor said your heart was just racing when she went to touch you- so sad!
  • You have a sweet personality, and you love to cuddle, but you really don't like it when someone (usually your brother) takes something from you!


  • You simply adore your brother, and I can tell you two are going to be great buddies. I've already caught you wrestling with each other and giggling your heads off!


You are our sweet Charlie boy and we love you so much!
