9 Months

James is 9 months old!
14 lbs 12 oz (still below the 5th percentile) I told him that at this rate, he'll never get to sit in a forward-facing car seat!
26 1/2" long (dropped to the 10th percentile from the 25-50th)
Dr is still a little concerned because now he has dropped in his length percentile. He is still not very interested in eating anything besides nursing. He will snack a bit on things that I am eating, but will not eat a "meal"! He does really like ice cream, though (just like mom!) That would certainly fatten him up! We are being referred to a dietitian...that should be fun!
Besides the eating thing, he is a healthy, happy little guy. He is army-crawling all over the place, (none of my other kids did that and I think it is too cute!) and can get up on his hands and knees and rock back and forth. Traditional crawling is just around the corner. We are being retrained to keep things off the floor...slowly! He just started sitting up unassisted this last week and cut his second tooth. He has discovered the joy of hearing himself scream, shriek and squeal and does it quite a bit. He also loves to say dadadada! Why is it never mamamama? The kids still pretty much adore him although they are not too happy with him when he chews up their things that they leave on the floor. They get upset with him and I remind them that it is their own fault for leaving it on the floor. They are learning! We just love our little James!
Just one more pic:

Starting him early! (Just in case you are concerned, he just loves the bottles...honest!)

He is so cute! Amazing how the kids find things they enjoy! My kids loved to chew on the rubber part of the droppers, and shaking pill bottles, and measuring spoons!

He looks like a little jail bird. Good luck with the dietitian. Keep us posted.

Haha! I love that last picture. His little brown and white outfit is super cute. I can't believe he's 9 months already!
