Welcome to the latest edition of Zach's first year where we are officially done with 75% of it!
Yup he turned 9 months.
Zach is able to sit up on his own now. However, he is STILL not crawling. Doctor said that all appears well - his reflexes and muscle tone are fine, and he is interactive, and mobile in other ways - so they are not at all concerned. It DID make our vacation easier not having to watch him like a hawk.
And vacation was a week out at Sylvan Beach with Aunt Cathy and Uncle Mark and cousins Natalie and Ben. (woo hoo - we really know how to live it up!) We had a visit from Aunt Melanie and cousin Megan too. Zach loved the water when it was calm - but on windy days when those waves started coming - he was a little less thrilled. But nothing can beat squishing your toes in that sand so he had a blast even on windy days.
He is officially up to 5 teeth with that sixth tooth giving him a heck of a time (and thus Zach giving us a heck of a time.) He is eating lots of finger foods, pastas, cheese, bagels, blueberries, and PICKLES! Yes - he loves dill pickles which we found out on vacation.
He says Mama, Dada, baba, that, and hisses like a goose when you get too close.
He is weighing 19 pounds 7 ounces, and meaures 28.5 inches long. That puts him in the 50% height, 25% weight, and 80% head circumference. Gotta love the Morphet melon.
We are in the process of possibly getting a new house - so wish us luck!
