9 Month Stats

This baby just keeps getting older.  I cannot believe I am already starting to think about his first birthday.  He is the sweetest, happiest, baby I know.  I just love him to pieces!!!  So on Thanksgiving day Jack turned 9 months old.  Here are his stats:

Weight: 17lb 12oz (15%)
Height: 29in (50%)
Head: 17 3/4 (30%)

So he is a little on the skinny side.  Partly becuase he eats very little baby food/table food and partly because he is scooting all around and loves jumping in the jumperoo and partly just because we make long and lean babies :)

What Jack's Up to
-scooting around on his belly.  He gets on all fours a lot, but hasn't mastered the actual crawl yet.
-nurses 6 times a day and still wakes up once a night for a feeding
-takes one short cat nap in the morning and a two hour nap in the afternoon
-starting to get better about eating.  eats about 2-4 ounces of purees a day
-still loves watching his sisters and smiles and laughs at them all day
-says mama and dada
-not into sippy/staw cups unless they are Ellie or Kate's
-loves splashing in the bath
-is finally getting some teeth.  The top two started coming first and now two on the bottom as well.
-had his first sick visit to the doctor.  Double ear infections :(
-like to 'sway' side to side.  He does this in the jumperoo and when people are holding him.

Here is a picture of his first two teeth.


This year we had a busy Halloween day.  We took the kids to the arboretum to see the pumpkin village and petting zoo and then in the evening we went to a halloween carnival.  The girls loved getting dressed up in their costumes, I am not sure how much Jack liked his, but he sure looked cute!  Here are some pictures from our morning at the arboretum.

Ellie and Kate also had their faces painted for the first time.  Kate was ok with it and pretty excited about how it turned out.  She got sparkley pink and purple butterfly wings.  Ellie was a little hesitant.  First she allowed him to paint a tiny heart on mommy hand, then her hand, and finally a few hearts on her cheek.

And now for some costume pictures.  Kate was a cat, which kind of looked like a skunk :)  Ellie was a pig, per her request.  She loves Peppa Pig and was so excited to put the costume on.  And I just had too much fun collecting costumes on sale for Jack.  He was a spider, duck, monkey, and tiger.
