It is so fun having a 9 month old. Oscar is becoming quite the little observer and he wants to try everything. Everything from food to doing whatever big brother is doing. He’s started to babble a LOT, which is hilarious. 9 months also means a doctor visit, which is great because I get to see how big he is.
Weight: 22lbs 14 oz
For the first time in his existence, Oscar is right on par with Walt. Every other visit, he’s been a solid 2 lbs bigger. He’s still 1/2 an inch taller than Walt (holy smokes, he’s gonna be tall), but his weight is almost exactly where Walt was.
Oscar is transitioning to more and more table food. He still eats jar food because sometimes he gets downright frustrated with not being able to pick up solid food fast enough. We’ve tried everything from fruits and veggies to spaghetti and meatballs, which he REALLY loved (#proudmommy).
Well, after taking some time to sleep consistently through the night, Oscar has turned into my snoozer. He still goes to bed about 6:30 every night and easily sleeps til 7 am. It’s not unheard of for him to snooze until 7:45 or 8:00. He also takes some epic naps on the weekends. He’s still doing 2 naps and they are around 90 minutes to two hours, each.
Just like big brother, Oscar has a mouthful of teeth. In the past month, four more have come through for a grand total of 8. The way he chews, I wouldn’t be surprised if there are more trying to make their way to the surface.
Oscar babbles mamamama, dadadada, and guh-guh-guh pretty much all day. He also loves to dance and bounce to music (#meltmyheart). Oscar is very easily entertained and completely belly laughs at Walt all the time. It’s also become apparent that he’s a giant flirt, so watch out ladies 🙂
I’m getting small glimpses into his personality. He definitely seems more fearless than Walt, but not a complete daredevil (yet). He is also insanely busy, but I feel like this is a 9-month trait. While he’s busy, he also plays great independently and will still let me cuddle him. I don’t remember Walt really ever giving me cuddles.
Just three more short months and this big guy will be one year old. That is so crazy!
