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!
