Aiden was 9 months last Wednesday.  Crazy.  He is so much fun right now and full of personality.  He was 10th percentile in weight at our checkup weighing 17 lbs. 3 oz.  His height was still 30 inches which dropped him to the 95th percentile and his head was in the 25th percentile.  Everything seemed okay.  I expressed my concern about him not wanting to sit up to Dr. Slusher and she tested his core strength which was pretty good so she said we shouldn't be worried. He can sit up he just doesn't especially like it.  He is starting to creep.  He still can't really crawl that great but if he really wants something he can get it. 

Aiden can also say 3 words now.  Mama, Dada, and Hey.  He did say Dada first and I was so upset but now all he says is Mama all the time.  He is also going through some kind of separation with me.  He will now cry when I leave and wants me to stay with him until he falls asleep.  Used to, I could just lay him down and he would fall asleep on his own.  Oh lord, hopefully this phase will not last long.  We started feeding him puffs over the weekend and he loves them.  He had eaten some mashed potatoes in the past but not alot of grown up food.  We also let him try hamburger meat and bread and he liked both of them.  I also sneaked him a bite of ice cream and am kicking myself for not videoing it because he absolutely loved it.  We aren't great as grasping with our fingers but are getting better with every meal.  Here are some other milestones.

diaper size: officially moved up to size 3
clothing size: 6-9 month
meals: every 3 hours. 7oz. formula and 2 meals day
sleep schedule: 2 hour-hour half naps and 12 hours at night
favorite activities: loves to read and swing in your outdoor swing.  you are loving little kids right now and constantly want to touch their face and interact- so precious
teeth: barely- one top and one bottom
