9 Months Old Statistics

Ethan is now 9 months. He weighs 16 lbs and 13 oz. He is 27 1/2 inches long and his head measured 17 1/2 inches. He's gained 1 lb 13 oz, grew 1 1/2 inches longer, and his head grew 3/4 inches bigger in 3 months time.

The doctor is a little concerned with his weight and developmental progress. He's a little behind (like not army or full crawling, not scooting, not trying to pull up on furniture, not starting to drink from a cup, not feeding himself, etc) so she set up an appointment for an evaluation with the infant and toddler program. Nothing to be concerned about. Basically she wanted to check things out before the delay in his progress gets too big. I should get a call for the evaluation within 2 weeks. If something is found then I will be doing physical therapy and/or occupational therapy with Ethan at home.

Rollie Pollie

Ethan has figured out how to roll both directions now. He loves to roll across the floor and get into things he shouldn't like cords, Dad's speakers, movies, and buttons on the TV equipment. Occasionally he gets stuck by the sofas or walls or rolls under a table. He just grunts, I come move him, and then he rolls somewhere else.

Good example of what I mean:

Did I get caught?

Yes I did, but I'll smile anyways. Aren't I cute?

The Start of a Long Project

Last week we had two beautiful days (like 60 degree weather) so I decided it was time to finally do something about all the bark we have around the house. I hate the bark! I want to replace it with grass or rock. I wanted to clean it up before it got too warm and all the spiders would come out.

It took 1/2 a day to clean up bark from the steps to our bedroom window. In total there was 22 bags! and the garbage guy took it all. Hurray!

Ethan's New Discovery

Ethan has discovered how to scoot backwards.

He really likes to do this is his crib so

he can play "pee-a-boo" in the bumper pads.

Look What I Can Do

I can stand in my crib!
(well as long as I hold on to the edge and mom holds on to me)

I can sit myself.

I only tumble over a little especially when I try to look up.

All that practice in the boppy pillow finally paid off.
