9 Months

In his 9th month, Samuel:
Weighed 18 lbs and 7.5 oz (only 20th percentile)
Was 26 1/4 inches long (only 5th percentile)
Got his flu booster shot.
Saw a Vanderbilt Plastic Surgeon about the removal of his skin tag,
   who believed surgery was his best option.
Still waiting on insurance pre-certification for surgery...
Wore 9 month clothes.
Fit into size 3 diapers.
Started making distinct sounds like da-da-da and ba-ba-ba.
Held his own bottle.
Liked eating puffs.
Had two teeth.
Would scoot to your feet if he wanted picked up.
Liked eating peas and apples mixed.
Still disliked sweet potatoes and peas (if not mixed).
Always held his right arm up when eating.  HILARIOUS!
Would play by himself...  quietly.
Tried avoiding Daniel, but loved him at the same time.
Sat up on his own.
Got bronchialitis.
Had to take lots of breathing treatments.
Was always so happy and sweet.
Went to bed at 9 p.m. and woke usually at 4 a.m.!
Everyone said he was chubby...
   and pretty.  :)
Had great coordination with his fingers...
Could pick up the smallest items.
Always wanted what Daniel had.
Tried a sippy cup.  Didn't work so well.

Give me some more food, please!

"Crawling" to Pop!

Loved being held...

And really liked kisses.

Took a bath with his big brother for the first time!

Look at his sweet cheeks!
