Happy 3/4 of a year Baby Boy!! I cannot believe my baby boy is 9 months old!
Luke can crawl on his hands & knees. Creep--holding onto furniture & walking around. Wave bye-bye, give baby kisses (mouth open) and smack his lip to make a kiss sound, and laugh great big belly laughs. He enjoys his mardi gras beads, koosh ball, play kitchen, bouncing, and so much more! He loves music and especially likes it when I sing Jesus Loves Me.
Here's a list of what we've fed him & his reactions:
Organic rice baby cereal--hates it
Steamed butternut squash--too mushy
Steamed broccoli--can't even pick it up he hates the texture
Baby food sweet potatoes--hates it
Baby food peas--hates it
Whole & Pureed bananas--hates it
Whole & Pureed mangoes--hates it
Pureed Banana/Mango mix--hates it
Organic Toddler Mum Mum Rice "Cookies"--loves them, but might be having a diaper rash reaction
Homemade "Donuts" (fried dough)--loves them, but alas is allergic
Fresh Blueberry rubbed on his lips--hates it
Mashed grapes (frozen in a mesh feeder)--hates it
Right now we are battling an awful diaper rash. It started with the donut on Wednesday or Thursday, but it keeps flaring up with every bowel movement. I'm sure its food allergy related, probably too much acid in his stools or something, but its a pain, because I know he's uncomfortable from it, but I can't get it to go away 100%.
Luke cut his first tooth last week & is working on his second bottom tooth this week.
He weighs about 17 1/2 lbs and wears a size 12 months. He mostly wears his wool shorties with cotton t-shirts. He sleeps in either wool pants & a long sleeve shirt, fleece pants & a long sleeve shirt or a fleece zip-up sleeper. We don't have a lot of pjs for him, but I do try to bundle him up at bed time. (We turn the AC down, because Tim & I both like it cold.)
We're well into planning his first birthday extravaganza and his first trip on an airplane!
