||My mood while writing this blog:|
Well, my little man is 9 months old! It is amazing how much time flies. Tonight we are taking him to get his 9 month/Christmas photos done. I am so excited. I did his 3 month photos, but then he came down with Roseola around 6 months and we never took him to get them done! Luckily I have a cute picture that I took with my digital camera before the roseola hit, and I am just going to use that as his 6 month picture.(Luckily it was digital, so I can have 5x7 & wallets made) We are also going to have him sit on Santa's lap since we are going to be at the mall anyway. May as well get it all done in one shot. :)
This month has been a big one for him! He FINALLY got his first tooth this week. It is his bottom, right tooth. He looks so cute with his little tooth. I just can't wait until he gets some more so that we can start working towards some actual table food. He has been eating mashed potatoes (with a little gravy), tiny chunks of pancakes, and the broth of my soups. He has also had Cheerios, Gerber puffs, Mum Mums, Biter Biscuits, and Zwiebek toast.
He is also pulling himself up on EVERYTHING and cruising around the furniture. He has even gotten gutsey and let go a few times He is getting so good that he switches from the couch to the end table then back to the couch.
The only negative thing that has developed is he little "independent attitude." He HATES being changed (diaper or clothes) and often throws a fit when I am trying to get him dressed. When he doesn't get his way (like slapping daddy's 48 inch plasma tv,)he will throw himself backwards and cry hysterically! It is awful, and I am trying to teach him not to do it, but when I say "no,no" or "That is unnecessary, stop throwing a fit," he just cries even harder. The only way he stops is if I pick him up and snuggle him. But isn't this just encouraging the negative behavior??
Another thing that I am struggling with is his Daddy obsession. He has ALWAYS been a mama's boy, but lately he has been all about my husband. I mean I am so happy that he loves his Daddy so much, but I miss when he was my little snuggley man. :) I am told he will often switch back and forth though.

- Monday, 8 Dec wow, first teeth and cruising, so exciting! isn't it wild how much they change?? we have some of that tantrumy behavior going on in my house too, and it's not fun -- especially the throwing themselves backward part b/c i'm afraid he's going to smack his head on the floor! but i guess they outgrow it -- i'm sure some of it is just frustration b/c they know they want to do something but just have no idea how to go about it. danamommy08
- Saturday, 6 Dec Yay for his first tooth!! Its so exciting! I'm just now letting Benjamin try my food, I'm so paranoid he's going to choke! Today he had pancakes and baked apples and he LOVED them, chewed them with no problem! Benjamin hates having his diaper and clothes changed, too. He loves to be naked, lol. Benjamin is definitely a mama's boy, he screams when I leave the room even if Ben is with him. I feel bad sometimes, I know it makes Ben jealous. Sounds like Brian is growing beautifully!! Merry Christmas! christina22908
- Saturday, 6 Dec Hey girl........yay on his first tooth!! isnt it so cute!! Emma got her first tooth at 7 months, she will be 10 months old next Friday and she has 5 teeth so far, two on top and 3 on the bottom. She isnt pulling herself up yet or crawling even. SHe gets on her hands and knees and she rocks back and forth but no crawling. Aside from the jar stage 2 foods, all she eats is cherrios. I suppose I can start giving her table food then huh, Brian does ok with it? I just can't wait til she can switch to milk, this formula is sooooo expensive. I cant believe our little ones are 9 months old already! I hope you have a wonderful holiday season with your hubby and baby!!
