Before Dallin turns 10 months at the end of this week, I thought I'd give a 9 month update! I uploaded these pictures weeks ago and then...well, life happened.
Dallin started crawling around 8 1/2 months, and we totally
bribed encouraged him to start scooting forward with food. And it worked!
|Planking with his legs crossed|
|"Here's some food, Dallin! Come on, eat it!"|
|I love how he is stretched from finger to toes!|
|Oh yeah, we also used stacked blocks to entice him.|
Dallin is such a happy kiddo and a very sweet, gentle little boy. Around the time he turned 9 months he had a rough few weeks of being sick...first with a regular cold and then with RSV. The poor little guy was doing breathing treatments through a nebullizer for a week, which he didn't love, but we got through it!
He loves splashing in water, handling anything and everything, and puts everything in his mouth. He has four teeth and two more coming in (well, they were coming in when he turned 9 months, they are definitely here now!) and he loves to eat. He also recently decided that he no longer likes baby food, so, aside from a few things, he pretty much eats whatever Leah eats (which simplifies things a lot for me...especially since she tries to feed all her food to him anyway).
At his 9 month appointment he measured 29 inches and 23 pounds (which was a little lower than expected because he'd been sick and had a low appetite for a week and a half before his appointment).
We love, love, love our happy, healthy (uh, aside from the 3 weeks of sickness!) boy!
