9 Month Update

Weight: 21 pounds 11 ounces

Height: 29 inches

Sleep: we are for the most part sleeping through the night!

Clothes: He is currently wearing 12 month clothes and 18 month clothes still! However a lot of his 12 month clothes are getting tight and he can even now wear some 24 month clothes!

Baby Gear loves:

Santa brought Dax this lion for Christmas and he does not stop playing with it! His other favorite toys include keys, a wooden spoon, water bottles, allllllll the cars! Dax also does not like to wear hats… which is unfortunate because momma thinks hats are just so stinkin cute!!

Dax’s favorites: Playing with toys. He is so into playing with his toys now! It’s so sweet! Dax wants to walk so bad! He also loves when momma and daddy chase him! He thinks it’s the best game!

Dax’s dislikes: Ear infections and having to get tubes. He also is starting to not like peas. Dax also has started to realllllly dislike when momma or daddy leave him.

Milestones: Dax is really starting to walk! He is becoming so much more independent! He loves doing things on his own and doing them his own way. He would rather eat foods he can feed himself over momma or daddy feeding him baby foods. He LOVES to eat table foods just like everyone else at the table. He also officially has cut 2 teeth and I feel confident that there are more on their way!

Nine months with this little cowboy has been so fun. I’m writing this post a little late because we ended this last month with Dax’s first Christmas and also surgery!

One thing that I was not prepared for before I had Dax was just how much the holidays would change once you have a baby. Dax has made this holiday season so special and want more meaningful that I ever thought possible. I have loved every second of Dax’s first Christmas. We spent it with a lot of family and had a lot of fun. He learned the wonders of tissue paper and now he loves ripping any kind of paper he can get his little hands on! (Pictures will be at the bottom)

After Christmas Dax had to have surgery to get tubes put in both his ears. Good golly this was so hard on mommas heart. It has helped him so much and I know he has been feeling relief! However giving your baby to someone else and watching them walk away will just rip your heart in two. However his surgery was quick and I wish I could say it was all smiles when we got to see him again. Dax was very upset when he was done with surgery and it was absolutely miserable to all involved for about 30 min – 1 hour after surgery! Once he took a nap he was all smiles and ready to play!

This is right after he woke up from his nap! Sleep and a little food in his belly and he was set to go!!

Dax momma and daddy love you more and more every day. Here’s to another amazing month spent getting to watch you learn, grow, giggle, and love others!

As usual here’s the photo dump from the past month:
