Henry At 9 Months

We took Henry to the doctor for his 9 month checkup this week. He is 19 lbs 1 oz (28%), 29.4 inches tall (85%) and his head is 17.75 cm (48%). So his weight has dropped some since he started crawling but his height has been increasing. He may be a tall boy!

A few notes about Henry:
  • Henry is pulling himself up on everything these days. Sometimes he gets scared because he can't figure out how to get down so we have to help him.
  • Henry has started pointing at everything with his cute, chubby little pointer finger. I want to NOM it all day.
  • Henry tried steak, strawberries, baked potatoes, pasta and sugar cookies this month -- and loved all of them.
  • I could have sworn Henry signed "more" to me on my birthday....but he hasn't done it since so it may have been a fluke. We're still working on it!
  • Henry sleeps from 7 or 7:30 PM until about 7:30 or 8:00 AM, with one feeding between 5 and 6 AM.
  • Henry cut TWO teeth this month! I only have a picture of the one so far (see below). Saints be praised!
  • We are still in size 3 diapers but we're having wet leaks every night almost when he wakes in the morning. He's at least 3 pounds shy of the lower threshold for the next size diaper. Should I size him up anyway?
  • Now that Henry is fairly mobile, Emme and Henry play together a lot more these days. It's actually very cute! He's pretty tough, and he can withstand most of her rough-housing without problem. Atta boy!

{Proof of the tooth!}

We love you, Henry boy!!
