Really late update, but here it is!
Ezra (9 Months):
Weight: 19lbs 4oz (37%) He is dropping in %iles, but I’m trying not to worry as the Dr. doesn’t seem too concerned.
Height: 30.25″ (97%) This boy is tall and skinny!
Head Circumference: 19.02″ (99%)
Clothes: Some 9 months and a lot of 12 months.
Eats: We are STILL able to breastfeed! I am so incredibly excited by this! Though, judging by his weight, I’m afraid I might not be supplying enough of the hind milk (the good stuff). The Dr. was happy that we were still breastfeeding, though. I’m really hoping we can make it to a year. He eats fruits and veggies with us at meal times along with an occasional VERY SMALL sample of meat, pasta, or cheese (depending on what we are having that night). He eats a little but of muffins and eggs in the mornings at breakfast with us as well. He also has oatmeal mixed with some of the pumped milk in my freezer stash that I’m trying to use up before it goes bad. He also loves yogurt. I’m starting to feed him little chunks of food and he does quite well with it!
Sleeps: He takes two naps (most days): 9ish-11ish, and 2ish-4ish. He goes to bed for the night around 8:00. He will still wake occasionally during the night and almost always wakes in the morning sometime between 4 and 6. MOST of the time he will go back to sleep for awhile, but sometimes he’s ready to be up for the day. We moved Ezra into Jude’s room last week and they are really enjoying being together (the first night was a bit rough, though.)
Milestones: He is still not crawling regularly, though is getting closer each day. He has pulled himself up a few times and LOVES to stand. He now has 4 bottom and 4 top teeth (though 1 of each popped through after he turned 9 months so they should really be included in his 10 month update). I am almost positive he said “thank you” and “Jude” one afternoon during a diaper change when Jude handed him a toy to play with. I have yet to get him to say either again, but I know I heard him say something! He jabbers and will say “Mama” and “Dada” and will clap his hands when told to. He is starting to self feed a bit, too.
Jude (21 Months):
Weight: 27lbs (according to our home scale)
Height: 33 1/2″
Head Circumference: 19 1/2 ”
Clothes: A healthy mixture of 18 months, 24 months, and 2T. He wears a couple pairs of 12-18 month shorts for church as the nice, dressy shorts seem to run big around the waste.
Eats: Everything. Except carrots and pasta with red sauce. We are still not really eating nuts yet. He broke out in hives shortly after eating peanuts the first time so we are waiting to try those again for awhile to see if that was the cause. He will still kind of pick and choose what he wants to eat at some meals, but normally does a pretty good job of eating what I make.
Sleeps: Lately he has been taking 2 naps a day (I think this is because of his super early morning wake ups). He still goes to bed at 8 and will wake anywhere between 6 and 8:30, normally closer to 7.
Milestones: I honestly can’t write out all the words he says because there are so many and it would take me a lot of time to try to think of them all. He has said a few sentences, his first (more than two words) being “I like that tea!” (Tyler gives him sweet tea from time to time and I try not to look 😉 ). He also said his first prayer, “Thank you, God, for this food. Amen.” He is jumping off two feet quite frequently, climbing on everything, sharing with his brother, and following directions pretty well.
