Everett is 9 months old
Our little guy is 9 months old today. He has been battling a horrible cold for the past 7 days, and has not slept well at night. I'm hoping we're at the tail end of it! Mama is tired! Last Christmas I was 27 weeks pregnant and wondering who the little person growing in my belly was. This Christmas, we get to experience the celebration of Jesus' birth with Everett :)
At 9 months old Everett:
-Never. Stops. Moving. He's a go getter; an active little guy. Always squirming or wanting to crawl and explore. Changing him is like trying to work with an orangutan.
-Can almost pull himself to standing. He pulls himself to his knees all the time but has yet to get up on his feet.
-Goes all over the house. We have to be careful and keep him out of everything. I have dug so many things out of his mouth.
-Loves food! He'll eat pretty much anything I give him. He loves finger foods the most.
-Takes two good naps a day, a morning and afternoon nap.
-Gets super crabby around 5:30 and is ready for bed. We put him to bed about 6:15-6:30. We don't take him out in the evenings! He sleeps until 6:30-7:00. He is hit and miss with waking at night. Some nights he wakes, some nights he sleeps all the way through.
-No teeth yet.
-Says the "ma" sound, "ba" sound and "da" sound.
-Still nursing (yay!), I was worried for a bit because he was not wanting to nurse much. However as long as I feed him enough food, he'll still nurse 4 or 5 times a day. He has a bottle of formula in addition to nursing right before bed.
