{Crew} Nine Months

Stats: Guessing my little man weighs in the upper 18 pound range (or for sure praying he does)!!! We'll find out next week Thursday at his 9 month well-child appointment.

*Update 5/19/16...soo my lil guy was NOT in the upper (or lower) 18 pound range. He came in weighing 17lb 4oz. Which is a mere 3rd-10th%. Gotta get some meat on this kid. Dr. M told me to increase the calories of his formula so we are (hoping this makes a difference by his 1 year appointment)!!! He measured 27in (25th%). And his head was 17.75in (50-75th%).
(My poor post viral rash baby).
Sizes: Crewsers is wearing 12 month or 12-18 month clothing. And a few 9 month/6-12 month pants. As for diapers he's still in size 3 (Kirkland) brand.
Food: Crew gets four 5oz bottles of formula a day and sometimes he'll take/need an additional bottle of 3-4oz. He eats a mixture of baby food and big people food. After we finish our current supply of formula (Meijer off brand of Enfamil Premium) we're switching things up and are going to try out Meijer's off brand of Similac Advanced. Making the switch because for the past month Crew has been a huge puker. But go figure after I buy the new formula (which he has NOT started taking yet) he's barely if at all spit up.

Routine: Crew still goes to bed around 7:45. However, its been a rough month for sleeping through the night. A week after turning 8 months Crew started waking/screaming multiple times a night. Final verdict = teething. But it took THREE looong stinkin weeks for the {left} front tooth to finally POP through. Anyways Crew takes his first bottle shortly after waking, eats some breakfast, and about 2-2.5 hours after waking he's ready for his first nap. He'll nap 2-3 hours. Shorter if were out and about. He gets a second bottle between 11 and 12. Followed by some lunch. He takes his second nap anywhere between 1:30-2:30 just depends on what time he woke from his morning nap. This nap is usually 1.5-2 hours. Gets his third bottle between 3 and 4. Followed by dinner. And his final bottle before bed.
Developmental Milestones: BIG MONTH!!! Crew started crawling (well slithering) on April 13. Pulled himself into a standing position on April 26 (but has only done a handful of times thus far). And he's pulled himself into a seated position on April 29 (and is starting to do this more and more frequently).
Loves: Crew loves his bops!!! Crew loves watching his big bro and sis!!! Crew loves his mama (and his daddy) but mama is def the fave)!!! Crew loves exploring the house since he can get around so well these days!!! Crew loves tubby time (as long as sis isn't in the tub too). And Crew loves iPhones!!!
Dislikes: Getting his face wiped. Bike rides (well riding in the bike trailer). And getting his diaper changed.

Other Things I Don't Want To Forget:
  • Celebrated your first Mother's Day.
  • Switched from drinking 6oz bottles to 5oz bottles because of lots and lots of spitting/throwing up. Puke spots all over the carpet.
  • You got your first {impromptu} hair cut.
  • You started sharing a room with Mason (right at 8 months). Sharing went great for a week and then a little thing called teething started happening. Because Crew was screaming so much during the night he was waking Mason (in both the middle of the night and at 6am (6am being Crew's wake up time for a short bit)). Neither which was cool. So after two weeks Mason moved back into our room. So Crew is currently living the dream all by himself again.
  • You are very inquisitive about the stairs. If the gates not up you would try to crawl down them (face first).
  • You got a "new" car seat this month. New meaning Mason's old one. So long baby carrier.
  • You are quite the night time snuggler. And even though I would prefer you to sleep all night long...I do LOVE me some Crewser snuggles!!!
  • You started sleeping with a blanket covering you this month.
  • You love riding in the stroller like a big boy!!!
