Hello Sweet Cheer: March 2017


Titus Matthew | 9 months

A G E: 9 months old!

W E I G H T: 20 pounds 6 ounces! 64th percentile!

L E N G T H: 28 inches! 35th percentile!

S I Z E: He is in size 4 diapers and wears mostly 12M clothes all dependent upon brand and fit.

E Y E S & H A I R: Dark brown!

S L E E P I N G: His bedtime routine is the same, it's been working great since he was about 3 months old. We've pushed the time back just slightly but the routine has been the same for months! Now, everything starts around 7pm. We give him a bath, lotion up, jammies, comb hair and read a book. Then he has his last feeding (a bottle of formula). He falls asleep on his own by about 7:30pm. He sleeps all night until about 7/7:30am. I nurse him when he wakes up and then we start our day!

He naps twice a day. His morning nap is usually around 10am and he sleeps around an hour (sometimes longer if I'm lucky). Then his afternoon nap is around 2/2:30pm and he sleeps an hour and a half.

E A T I N G: I'm still nursing but we are down to one feeding a day. He nurses right when he wakes up in the morning! Then he gets a 6 ounce bottle of formula before each of his naps. And he still gets his bottle before bed, which is consistently an 8 ounce bottle. Titus is eating strictly table foods now. He loves chicken, cucumbers, strawberries, pancakes, rice, cheese, any kind of fruit or veggie and so much more! I usually feed him whatever we're eating or some sort of leftovers!

M I L E S T O N E S:
-Crawling everywhere! He's getting really fast, too!
-Pulls up on furniture and in his crib (only to his knees, not to his feet yet)
-Understands when we tell him, "Don't do that" or "Sit down, please"
-Eating only table foods now. We've pretty much phased out baby food!
-Has SIX teeth total!
-Loves to wave and smile at other kids in public! Adults, not so much, haha.

O U T I N G S: Nothing of note this month, just all the normal things.

F A V  T O Y S/A C T I V I T I E S: He has a few favorite toys! He has a wooden truck that he likes to roll back and forth, still loves his light up drum toy and now he has a play table toy. It also lights up, plays music and sings songs! Right now we're learning the colors in Spanish! He has no idea what's going on yet, but I play a little song and sing it to him.

W O R D S/S O U N D S: Still saying Mama and Dada! Squeals, laughs, babbles, etc.

N I C K N A M E S: Titus boy, Love bug, Titus Almightus, Sweet boy, Titer, Titer Almighter, Buckysmith, Buckwheat Smith, Silly goose bug, Goose

F U N N Y  M O M E N T S: He always hams it up for other kids! We went out to eat twice this past weekend and both times he was making the funniest faces at kids in the restaurant!

Some outtakes....

There's those 6 teethies!

He's been weirdly obsessed with this brush lately! Haha!

Here are some photos from the past month!

We love you, Titus boy! Life with you is so much fun!
