Nine month Check up

Nix had his nine month check up today, the Doctor said everything was looking really good. He has sure thinned out alot since he started crawling everywhere. He has also getting the hang of pulling himself to standing and couch surfing. These are his stats. Height: 28.5 inches 50%
Weight: 19.14 pounds 50%
Head: I don't remeber the measurement but in the 50th Percentile.
What happened to 98%? Oh well, he is healthy and happy.

I also spoke too soon on the sleeping through the night. I guess it was just a one week thing, cause he's back to the normal wake up two or three times. We've even had a few nights where Blake or I would take turns watching cartoons with him at 3 o'clock in the morning cause that was the only thing that would make him fall back to sleep. So if anyone has any wonderful ideas on getting a baby to sleep please share, for my sanity!

He must know that he's cute cause this is his favorite place to hide from mommy, sitting right in front of a mirror that I haven't found a home for yet. I don't know why but whenever he goes "exploring" this is the first place he heads.
He also has gotten another tooth about a week and a half ago. So now he has his two bottom front teeth. THe dental assistant in me has to keep reminding myself that they are just baby teeth and crookedness isn't that important! Hopefully the permanent ones grow in straight, and if not I guess I have connections!

All in all he is such a good baby and brings so much joy and happiness into our lives. The bright eyes and huge smile he flashes every morning seems to make it not matter how many times I've been up in the night, or that we're awake at six thirty on a saturday morning. He's definatly a momma's boy, which I'm not complaning about. I love that he reaches for me. I just feel bad that he pushes Blake away to get to me. Don't worry honey one day it will be the other way around!
I just can't imagine life with out Nixon. I am so thankful that my Heavenly Father trusted me enough to take care and raise one of his most special spirits!


  1. Oh, he is so cute! He is getting so big :) My Payson just barley started sleeping through the night! He was a terrible sleeper! And still wakes up sometimes. So I feel your pain! I am sorry! But he is darling!

  2. Oh Tristan he is so cute! So about this sleeping through the night thing. Are you still nursing? That could have an impact. Have you let him cry it out, I know it's hard, but sometimes worth it. Kyleigh slept through the night I think once before she was 1:):) I also nursed her, so I think that had something to do with it. Sorry if that is not very reassuring. She sleeps like a rock now. You will get through it, it goes by so fast.

  3. SO BIG.. he is such a cutie! miss you guys! abby has been having a hard time at night the last week.. i think she must be either teething or growing. I dunno, but goodness, i feel your pain. i hate it!!!!! just go to sleep little babies!!!

  4. What a handsome little boy! He is such a cutie. I am so excited to take his pics next week.

  5. Oh my goodness Tristen he is so so handsome. He is getting so big. It is amazing how much they change in such a little amount of time. You are such a good mommy. I hope you are surviving the long hard nights, or mornings as the case may be. Hayden had TERRIBLE sleeping habits, some were normal newborn stuff but I started letting him cry himself to sleep and going in to comfort him every few minutes. It has helped sooo much. He pretty much gets himself to sleep now. Its glorious. Good luck! We should have a mommy day one day. All the kids can play and the mommies can hang out. I also think chocolate and treats should be involved :)

  6. He is so darling, can you believe how fast they grow up? Pretty soon he'll be one. I had such a hard time with Paxton sleeping too, oh I wanted to cry so many times. We actually came to the realization that we needed the help of our Father in Heaven so Ryan gave Paxton a blessing. That was the trick, now he goes to bed by himself and sleeps until 5 (can't complain too much cuz he goes back to bed until 7 or 8) anyway hope that you find something that helps!

  7. You know what? I think he's probably the cutest little Tingey baby boy I have seen in probably 26years or so. I'm not prejudiced, either!

  8. He is seriously adorable!!! I didn't know that you were a dental assistant? I have been a dental assistant for years, and now I am an office manager for a dental office, but still like to go in the back and play every once in a while!!!
