NINEmonth : UPdate

We went to the doc this morning for D's 9 mo check up and as expected his a very healthy little boy! He weighed in at 20lbs even, although I still maintain their scale must be off by at least a few lbs! His length was 29 1/2". He's 85th % on height and 40th % on weight our little long lean boy is getting so big! His bottom two teeth are still coming in as I mentioned and the doctor confirmed my thought that his top teeth were about to make an appearance (that should be fun)! Every day is filled with ups and downs by both Dealey and me but seriously Dealey just stands up and sits down all day long it's exhausting just to watch. Oh we must not forget the head he's in the 85th % on head too not the biggest in our circle of friends but I still think it's so funny how big kids heads are it's amazing they can walk or hold them selves up with such massive amounts of bone, tissue and whatever else is in our brains sitting on their shoulders.

She said we're good to eat almost anything which is fun I can stop buy so much baby food and introduce Dealey to wide world of table foods! The big day will come in a few months when I buy the last insanely expensive container of formula that will be a victory in my mind! It's funny and I'm not sure I've ever mentioned it before but the one thing and I mean ONE thing that is cheaper in NY is formula because it's all made up there and so shipping/distribution is so much less it's seriously like $10 cheaper and when you buy 4 cans a month that's a lot of money...oh well what are you going do...I'll tell you, nothing.

Watch out Dealey! They might introduce you to sushi some time in the near future!

haha. Yay D! Growing big and strong! :) Have fun introducing table foods. Love that stage too. And the no more formula thing. I totally know what you mean! I loved that too. I mean not having to buy it anymore.

Interesting is a GOOD word for it :) Funny enough he was excited because Orange has always been his favorite color!

I was WAY off! I was telling David that I thought he weighed like 30 pounds. (Sorry D..) What's his first table food going to be?

Well Suz had some broccolli that Mags didn't want and D ate it so I guess that was his first table food...but i have I hopes this next grocery shopping trip for good stuff can't wait to shop!
