Height: 28 and a half inches (60th percentile) Weight: 16 lbs. 10 oz. (5th percentile)
Well, I can't believe it but baby Drew is almost 10 months old now. I'm a little late on posting his 9 month update. He amazes me every day and I'm super excited to get to spend the summer with him. I'd like to hopefully take him to the aquarium or zoo as well sometime before school starts.
When we went to the doctor, he wasn't very happy with Drew's weight. He's below the 5th percentile for his age. I promise we feed him. He's actually eating a lot lately. We have to go back in a couple weeks to do another weight check. He's still eating baby food for breakfast and lunch. He takes a bottle at breakfast, snack, and bedtime. And a sippy at lunch and dinner. Hopefully we'll start seeing results in the next month or so.
He is crawling every where and pulling up on everything. He can walk almost the length of our living room which is probably about 12-15 steps for him. It's scary and exciting all at the same time. He loves trying to get Tyson and Starr, and for the most part they let him. I'm really working on how we pet the puppies and not hit them. Drew has done really well so far with understanding "No." He doesn't listen every single time, but for the most part if we say no to something, he'll move away from whatever he's not supposed to be doing.
He loves being outside. I try to take him outside to play or for a walk every day. When I go to let the dogs in, he'll cry once he realizes we're not going outside. I knew I'd end up having a kid who loved the outdoors because I hate them so much. Especially in the summer. I'd so much rather be in air conditioning.
As you can tell from the title I'm a buckeye, living in the bluegrass state. But I love it here and wouldn't change it for the world. I'm a 2nd grade teacher at Northern Elementary and I love all the rewards that come with teaching. My husband Mike and I live in Georgetown and just welcomed our first little one into the world on August 27th, 2010. We also have two dogs, Starr and Tyson.
