Henry- 9 months

Look at this handsome boy! Oh Henry we love you! Henry is just growing up. He is into everything and thinks he is so big! Here's a quick update on our busy 9 month old:
  • Got his first tooth December 11, 2016...finally! Kate and Millie got their firsts at 5 months and 6 months so I couldn't believe he hadn't gotten any teeth yet. It's his bottom left. The bottom right is really close to coming up too!
  • He goes crazy during bath time. He crawls everywhere and tries to stand up and things he can do it all but he's dangerous. 
  • This has been happening for a month or two but insists on pulling up part of his swaddle blanket up to his face. It's pretty dang cute. The second I put his pacifier in his month he grabs a corner and puts it up to his face (just like Millie does)!
  • Loves Daddy's glasses and thinks pulling them off is the funniest thing!
  • Loves to watch his big sisters and wants to be apart of all their playing...although the girls don't love that Henry wants to get into all their stuff!
  • Continues to chatter and talk up a storm. Lots of babababa and dadadada, giggles, squeaks and ahhhhs!
  • Favorite toys pretty much anything he can stick in his mouth. Loves our piano playing Snoopy Christmas decoration (see picture below), pieces to our Three Little Bear wooden puzzle, light up wands, any toy the girls are playing with and he loves pulling himself up to the play kitchen and trying to mix something up in the pots and pans!
  • LOVES table food. He does let me spoon feed him yogurt and mashed up beans but prefers to feed himself and have me feed him little cut up pieces of everything!
  • Slams his right arm on his high chair table when he wants more and shakes his head "no" when he's all done! We are working on his signs for these but he seems to like his way of communicating more!
  • Loves to shake his head from side to side "no." 
  • Loves to swing and be outside. This is the best time of year to live in Phoenix that is for sure!
  • Wears size 3 diapers and 9 month clothes.
  • Sleeps from 7pm to 6:30am. Still taking ~2-2 hour naps. His teeth have been bothering him so he hasn't been napping or sleeping quite as well the last week or so. 
  • Weight: 17.5 pounds (13%ile)
  • Height: 26.5 inches (1%ile)
  • Head: 44.5 cm (32%ile)

Here's a decent peek at Henry's little tooth mid-swing!

I love that Millie wanted in on Henry's pictures!

  1. What a darling little boy! Henry is growing up so fast and he is so cute! We can't wait to be with him and all of you for Christmas. So glad his tooth came through, just the start of many more to come though. Love all of you so much!
