Solon was 9 months on May 7, 2010...He is growing up so fast and learning SO much these days...here is a rundown of what he is up to...
--He now army crawls EVERYWHERE and he would make the Army proud at his speed and determination to reach his destination
-- He decided to wean himself and is now only nursing in the morning and taking the rest of his milk via bottle and formula
--He goes to bed at 7:30 and wakes up about 7am (11.5 hours sleep) and takes 2 1 1/2 hour naps and sometimes a late afternoon 20 minute power nap
--He learned how to throw a ball but his aim is a work in progress
--He eats baby food 2 times a day - fruit and oatmeal in the morning and veggies and rice cereal with baby yogurt for dessert. He also loves Gerber graduate puffs and cheerios for snacks
--He is wearing 6-12 month clothes
--He has a size 1.5 shoe size (he has the worlds smallest feet for his age)
--He still has NO teeh
--He gets a bath in the big boy bath tub every other night (special daddy-son time)
--He likes the book "Brown Bear Brown Bear"
--He only gets mad when he is hungry, tired, or not moving!
--He is a very happy laughing smiley baby boy
--His bed has been lowered all the way because he is pulling himself to his knees
--We are still working on baby signs (he just smiles when I show him)
We go for his 9 month well visit on Tuesday and finalize the ENT's decision for tubes on Thursday - more updates to come!
