9 Month Checkup

Today I took Tanner to see Dr. Scott for his 9 month checkup. We have really gotten to know Dr. Scott pretty well since Izabel was born and we just love him!

Tanner is 21lbs 2 oz and 29.5 inches long! He is obviously growing really well and Dr. Scott is very happy with how he is progressing. He is in the 85th-90th percentile for his length and 65th-70th percentile for his weight. Pretty soon he'll catch up and I'm sure pass Izabel in these areas! Needless to say he is not getting carried around in his car seat anymore :)

We talked about using the sippy cup and introducing finger foods. Tanner is eating stage 3 jar foods but moving on to finger foods and more normal foods would sure help out on the grocery bill. Tanner has sat up, crawled and pulled up to standing right on schedule. He even waved at himself last night in the mirror! Everything checked out perfectly and Tanner was described as having a "soft temperment" which just means he is very laid back. He didn't even cry when he got the two shots the came with this visit. He is the picture of health and development for a 9 month old and we couldn't be happier to have such a happy healthy little boy!

Check back later this week for 9 month pictures of our little quarterback!

9 Months!

Okay so I'm a little late on the 9 month post and pictures but life is crazy like usual!

It's hard to believe Tanner is 9 months old and 3/4 of the way through his first year! It seems like just yesterday he was a newborn and I was struggling to survive with two children under 2. However here we are and life is great. Tanner is crawling all over the place and finally using his knees more often than his arms. He's pulling up and starting to cruise around the room. He tries to play and enjoys his toys a lot more when Izzy is not around! Sometimes I think he likes it when we put him in the entertainer so she can't bother him :)

He loves to jump and be thrown up in the air. We put him in the doorway jumper and will jump until he falls asleep! He's still happy and smiling all the time. He has two teeth and is slowly getting more hair. Luckily he didn't really lose any or get a bald spot. He sleeps great. He's pretty much given up his morning nap but he takes a great afternoon nap and then sleeps from about 8 at night until 7 or 8 in the morning. We've almost got him and Izzy sleeping for the same amount of time which makes life so much better. He's eating stage three foods and starting on finger foods. He loves the yogurt bites and puffs. He HATES green beans. He's not a fussy eater but there is no way to get green beans in his mouth. He hates getting his diaper changed or getting dressed but other than that he is always happy and the easiest baby I have ever seen!

Izzy took my toy away again!
Oh well, I'll just play with this oneStanding up to play
