Weight: I'm thinking we're pushing 17 pounds now? We won't find out until his nine month checkup.
Health: We've had a stuffy nose the last couple of nights which has made sleeping a challenge. It got so bad one night, he was refusing to nurse. It was heartbreaking to see him struggle so much.
Sleep: See above...it's been a little rough lately. Mostly getting him to go down initially. Once he's out, he's usually still sleeping 4-5 hour stretches.
Social: Ethan got to spend time with his buddy Beckett this past week. Beckett is almost exactly a year older and likes to copy everything Ethan is doing. It was really cute to see them interact. I know they'll be best buddies soon enough!
Diet: Ethan is still nursing when I'm with him or getting a combo bottle. Also still on the purees. It seems Ethan really prefers fresh food, like sweet potato or butternut squash. He's kind of gotten over the baby cereal for the time being.
Clothes: 6-12 month and 9 month jammies or 6 month onesies and pants. What happened to my little baby??
Baby Gear Love: We finally introduced Ethan to a bigger tub. We got the Hoppop Bato Bathtub which is a great transition tub. It's big enough to allow baby to sit up and play with his toys, but we don't have to fill the entire tub. My only complaint is that there is no texture at the bottom so he's pretty slippery in there.
Crying: Pretty non-existent...except for when he can't breathe through his nose, which I can only imagine is pretty tough right now!
Likes: He loves sitting and playing with his toys...and then rolling around. Ryan calls it "exploring". He also loves "talking" and making loud shouty noises...oh and flapping his arms wildly. It's his happy dance!
Postpartum: Nothing too new in this department!
Milestones: I feel like Ethan is definitely more and more on the move. Maaaaaybe we'll have a crawler before long! And Ethan has been mouthing words, like "ma" which gets me all excited!
