Campbell | Nine Months


Weight: I'm not sure exactly but I would guess around 16.5 pounds. All I know is I feel like I'm constantly switching arms when carrying him. The little Peanut is getting heavy!!

Height: Probably around 27.5 inches.

Sleep: Campbell takes 2 naps a day. For his first nap he goes down around 9:00 and the second one he typically goes down any time between 2:00-3:00. Both naps usually last about 1 hour and 15-30 minutes. He still goes to bed around 7:30 and wakes up around 7:00. Campbell has always been a side sleeper but he now rolls on his stomach with his face smashed into his mattress and it really stresses me and Scott out! How can he breathe when he sleeps like that?
Eat: Campbell is still a really great eater! He's getting much better about picking food up and it's not as messy as it used to be. I think his favorite fruit is blueberries and he also really loves pancakes. Campbell loves to drink water out of a straw. I'm still nursing 4-5 times a day and I've gotten in a terrible habit of nursing Campbell to sleep. I don't know why I started doing that. I need to stop but ugh I just don't feel like messing with it. I always thought it would be easy to wean Campbell from nursing but I'm not thinking that will be the case anymore. He knows how to "ask" now and he "asks" all the time. Whoops.

Clothes: We are still in 3-6 month clothes. The length is getting to be a problem so after I wash his clothes I pull on the legs to get them stretched out and let it hang to dry. I do put him in 6-12 month one piece rompers and they fit him great. His little waist is way too small to hold up 6-12 month pants (he can manage leggings though) and occasionally I'll throw on a 6-12 month sweater or sweatshirt and it works okay but it's big around his neck and shoulders. All Kickee Pants pajamas are 6-12 months and they fit him perfectly. Hats are 6-12 months. Size 1 Freshly Picked shoes and size 3-6 month Gap shoes.
Diapers: Pampers Swaddlers Size 2

Likes: Campbell loves playing with his toys. His favorite thing to do right now is to tilt his toy basket over and pull every single toy out of it. He loves, loves Mickey Mouse. I can sit him on my bed and he will sit completely still, stick his fingers in his mouth, and watch an entire episode without hardly blinking. His nightly bath is definitely a highlight in his day. He still loves his sisters so much!

Dislikes: Tight clothes going over his head, wiping him off after he eats. Campbell does not like our nightly routine after he gets his bath. He typically cries the whole time I'm putting on his diaper, rubbing lotion on him, snapping his pj's and zipping up his sleep sack.
Milestones: Campbell will wave bye bye and give high fives. Whenever he does, we cheer and clap for him and he gets so proud and claps with us. He's started rolling all over the place this month. I'll walk out of the room and he's in the opposite spot when I come back. He "talks" all the time and last night he started saying "Ma." I'll just go on ahead and claim that his first word was Momma!

Month Nine: Just this week we switched Campbell to a big boy car seat! We went with the Maxi Cosi Pria 85 and it seems much more comfortable than the infant car seat but it's so much harder to get him in and out of it than it was our Uppa Mesa.
All About Campbell: Campbell thinks it's so funny to be scared. I'll scare him, he jumps, then laughs so hard. He taps/bangs his hand on everything. Campbell loves to be carried and walked around the house. This is something his Daddy and Grammy do with him more than me. I mostly just sit on the floor with him and play toys. Campbell has gotten so much better with letting "strangers" hold him. He'll even reach if they ask him if they can hold him. When he gets hungry you better feed him immediately! He is really such a sweet little boy. This stage is just getting so much fun. It's fascinating to watch him. He's learning so much right now and it's really exciting to see it!
