Shep [9 Months]

Our sweet Harrison Shepard is NINE months old. I am forever wishing he would quit getting older. He is mama's little baby and I do not want that to change! I cannot believe how close we are to his first birthday and that I am already having to think about that. This has been such a fun month with Shep. He has learned so many new things!

Weight/Height: 21 1bs, 28 1/2 in

Hair: Our sweet Shepy is starting to get a lot more hair! He's so cute with his bed head in the mornings.

Clothes: Mostly 12 month

Diapers: Size 4

Sleeping: Shep usually goes to sleep around 6:45pm and wakes up around 7:00am. He takes 2 long naps, one in the morning and one after lunch time, then he takes another shorter one in the late afternoon sometimes.

Likes: Shep loves playing with his toys, snuggling with his mama, and laughing at his brother.

Dislikes: Someone not coming to get him out of his crib the second his eyes open in the morning ;)

Eating: Shep has four 8oz bottles/day, 1-2 jars of baby food, and finger food snacks. He has started weaning himself from his bottle and is wanting his sippy cup more during the day. He loves to eat but I am having to be very careful about what I give him because of his dairy and soy allergies. We are going to do a full food allergy evaluation at his 1 year appt. so until then we will just stick simple foods. So far he has been enjoying bananas, steamed carrots, and some bread!

Milestones: Shep is officially crawling and pulling up! He has 2 (bottom) teeth and working on his top 2. I have also been working with Shep on baby sign language. He has "more" down perfect!

Baby Items We Can't Live Without: I feel like we used our high chair a lot this month. Shep is starting to eat more finger foods so he is sitting longer in his seat. He drinks his day time bottles/sippy cups in his high chair. We also pulled out a few of Bennett's old toys and Shep is loving them, especially the "mobile office" as we like to call it ; )
