9 month update

We just got back from Elliot's 9 month appointment and the little bugger is doing great. He weighed in at 19.7 pounds and measures 27.5 inches. He is still in the 25%tile for both but as long as he stays consistent, the doctor is happy. His head measures 45.5 cm. He definitely has eczema which we suspected and will probably get worse during the winter. We've been treating it with hydrocortisone and will continue to do so but have a prescription just in case. We were given the go ahead for finger foods even though he has no teeth. The doctor has no idea when they are coming in, his gums are swollen and he feels them but it still could be weeks or months away. His next appointment is is 3 months when he turns 1 year old!

Learned my lesson

I left Elliot's pajamas hanging in the corner on the railing of his crib (I usually remember to take them off). When I went to get him after his nap, this is what I saw.

Pumpkin Picking

We went to Johnson's Farm to go pumpkin picking. Kyle, Regina and Ethan joined us. The boys dressed in their costumes. Elliot had a great time. We came home with a little pumpkin and a gourd (you bite it, you buy it). The day included a hay ride, pumpkin picking and apple cider doughnuts.

This tastes good too

A gourd, the perfect teething toy.

I want this one

Can I get it?

I'll show you

This is how you sit, Kyle

Tastes good

We should go on hayrides more often.


Is this what we've been waiting for?

Still waiting...

...but at least I have someone to play with.

Look who joined us

Is it our turn yet?

Waiting in the LONG line for the hay ride.

See me

Trying to show his tail.

Elmo Picture

I wanted to take a picture of Elliot with Elmo like when he was a month old. Things did not go as planned. It is not as easy now that he can move. The best picture was the first one where he is touching his nose. After the photo session, we brought Elmo to the floor where Elliot had fun "wrestling" him.

Honk Honk

Give me the remote!

Watching Veggie Tales

I'm cute and I know it

What a face

His shirt says "Mommy's Little Devil"

Meeting Mommom C

He met his great grandmother for the first time on her birthday

Bucket Head

It fell on my head in the tub so I left it.

Weird sleeper

I like to sleep on my knees with my butt in the air.

I see you

No more Mr. Lazy Bones

I can finally sit on my own.
