My gorgeous little man, you are 9 months old. What a productive month we’ve had! There seems to have been a dramatic change in your abilities this last month, the main change being that you are tolerating solid food! Hurrah! I thought this time would never come. A lot of my worries have lifted now. You aren’t eating loads yet but you are definitely getting there.
We’ve just come back from our holiday in Cornwall and I feel like this has made you seem more grown up. You had such a good time at the beach and have been such a little happy chappy all week.
You are sitting completely unaided now and we are trying to encourage you to crawl but every time you are on your belly you just roll back over on to your back. I’m sure like everything, you will do it when your ready.
Your two bottom teeth have finally broken through!! All the pain and sleepless nights you went through and now you have something to show for it! I do feel like these little teeth have helped you to eat better too.
You had a hearing test a couple of weeks ago (routine due to your suspected meningitis as a newborn) I was a bit disappointed as I thought you would pass it with flying colours but you didn’t. There seems to be a small blockage in your inner ears so they will recheck them in August to see if the blockage has cleared. It doesn’t appear to affect your day to day hearing though so for now, we won’t worry about it.
Last month I mentioned that you were saying “DA-DA” a lot and this month I am so pleased that you are now saying “MA-MA” too, although you still prefer to say “DA-DA” 😉
You are enjoying lots of things this month. Playing with stacking rings and wooden blocks are a favourite but you have recently learnt to play peek-a-boo which never gets boring for you either. You are such a joy to be around. You light up a room the minute you are in it and you make everyone’s day! We love you, you beautiful little soul.
Until next month…
