9 Months

October 10, 2012-November 10, 2012

Because I'm so behind, this post will be short and sweet :)

9 Months
Length: 29 inches
Weight: 21.5 lbs

Loves: being outside, "army crawling" everywhere, watching videos of himself,  pulling up on anything and everything, clapping his hands, Puffs, feeding himself, animals, looking at books, his "play" table, putting anything and everything in his mouth, his wubbanub, paper

Hates: rice cereal and oatmeal

Owen is wearing 9-12 months clothes and wears size 3 diapers still. He takes about 5-7 ounces of breast milk every 3 1/2 to 4 hours.  He sleeps from 7:30-6 or 6:30 which is so much better than than that 5 or 5:30 wake up time. What we did was treat that 5 or 5:30 wake up time like it was still night time. So we left the lights out, didn't say anything and just fed him. He would always fall back asleep for a little bit until he started sleeping in until 6 or 6:30. He is down to 2 naps a day which are typically 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours each. It makes all the difference in the world him getting those 2 good naps! When he is at day care 2 days a week though he usually only sleeps 30 minutes to an hour the entire day. He is quite the mess when he gets home! So thankful that is just 2 days a week!

Owen still moves constantly! He is dangerous now that he pulls up on things. He still does his army crawl everywhere and loves to have something in both of us hands as he moves around. He is happiest when he gets to move freely wherever he wants without interruption. One of the hardest things we do is change his diaper. It really is turning into a 2 man job because he doesn't want to be still for very long. This month he had his first ear infection. It was turned out to be a bilateral ear infection with possible strep throat. Once again, thank you day care! He was a trooper though and got lots of TLC from us. Owen enjoyed his first Baylor Homecoming this month. We met my old roommate and her family. Emily and I shared a room together at Baylor for 3 years!
