Mommy Mondays: 9 Months

Weight: 20lbs 10 oz (+12bs 6oz)
Height: 30.5 inches (+9.25 inches)
 Head: 18.1 inches

Sleep:  Hahahahahahahahaha.  In the past month Thatbaby has completely forgotten what this is.  That's unfair.  I'm sure he remembers, he's just not interested.  Or he is interested, but the teething pain makes him unable to partake.  Poor kid.  We are in the thick throes of teething here. He's up about every 2 hours and/or has a really hard time getting to sleep.  About 25% of the time he ends up in bed with us.  One night he could literally only sleep if he was nursing.

Eating: Along with the teething, his solid eating has been a little off this past month.  He's still nursing like a champ, every 3-4 hours, and drinking 16oz at daycare most days.  He especially loves soups.  I scoop out the meat and veggies and plop them on his tray and he goes crazy.  He had 3 servings of hamburger soup this week.

Best Moment: He plays with Thatdog!  Which might be the cutest thing ever.  And we've realized that Thatdog doesn't dislike kids, he just didn't like Thatkid!  He is so patient with Thatbaby.   He lets Thatbaby chase him, take his toys and throw them.  And when we get home from work/school, he runs over to give Thatbaby a kiss.

Monthly Wisdom: If you want all the parts of your brain to work, you need sleep.  Since I haven't had sleep in a pretty long time, parts of my brain are definitely not functioning on all cylinders. These are the moments where I appreciate that this is our last child.  Because one day, ONE DAY, his child will sleep.  And then I will sleep.  And we all will sleep.  And we will live happily ever after.

Goals for the Upcoming Month:
- Get through our first MAJOR car trip.
- Get through our first airplane ride as a family of four.
- Survive Easter with the inlaws.
- Get some more sleep.

Things Thatbaby is doing:
- crying
- whining
- growing teeth!  He's got 2 of them.
- high fives!
- cruising
- He loves one of his books - Corduroy's Halloween.  He waves at in the morning.  He wants to pick it up/hold it all the time.  He picks it out to read every evening.
- Playing fetch with Thatdog.
