Truett had his 9 month check-up and he is now 19lbs and 1oz in the 50th percentile, 29 inches long in the 70’s, and head circumference of 45.5cm in the 75th. He also got his iron tested with a finger prick. (12. something) He thought the nurse was just holding his hand until she pricked his finger. He looked at her like “I’ll just take my hand back now.” but he didn’t cry. When we passed her in the hall later, he was happy to flirt with her. Silly boy.

That lady poked me... I thought we were just holding hands.

Tru flirts with all the ladies now. I don’t know what I am supposed to do with him! Always flashing that adorable smile and those pretty blue eyes.

 

DH’s work took all the employees and their families on a trip to an amusement park. We had a great time. I had really been looking forward to going because I went last year while I was pregnant and had a blast even though I couldn’t ride anything. Well, this year I still didn’t get to ride much of anything although we did take Tru on the Merry-Go-Round. He loved it at first and was being really cute watching the horse go up and down but it started to get to his stomach and he wanted me to hold him. We also took him out on a paddle boat and a little mini motor boat, bith of which he loved. Except for the straight life jacket. He didn’t take a nap all day at the park until we left! It was so sad because he couldn’t even keep his eyes open but yet he was refusing to sleep.

Tru's favorite person in the world now. Who cares about mom when you can be best buds with dad?

I took Tru swimming for the first time at my Aunt’s house. He loved it!! He wasn’t too sure about the water temp but once he got used to it he was splashing and kicking around. He was happy to be held or sit in his float. He wasn’t a bit scared which isn’t necessarily a good thing. I finally had to take him out of the water after a couple hours because it was overcast and he was starting to shiver but he was in no way ready to get out so I lifted him out of the water still in his float so he was kind of faked out. It was adorable.

 

Tru wouldn't let go of that ball even after getting out of the pool. His favorite toy right now is a little soft ball. Seems so boring to me.

Tru  has become SUCH a daddy’s boy lately. If DH is in the room, Tru is right next to him. He loves nothing more than for us to get on the floor and let him climb all over us. Meaning that he pulls out my hair and loves on DH’s nose. If DH leaves the room, Tru crawls after him crying and screaming. It’s both adorable and heart breaking. DH has made it no secret that he is quite flattered.

Ah! Its been a long day.

I have stopped trying to nurse Tru on my right side. He has NEVER EVER liked that side for some odd reason even though I always made plenty of milk over there. I gave up on it and he has fought nursing less since realizing that he only gets the side he likes. I’m still nursing him when he is sleepy and that is working MUCH better. I am so happy about it but I still feel a little panic when I think about weaning…

 

I am trying to start planning for his first birthday party. I *think* I might go with a tiger theme. Haven’t discussed it with DH yet. It just occurred to me the other day that Oct is VERY close!! I better get a move on.

 

Went clothes shopping for Tru. I think the last time I went was Feb or March. I spent $39 on 24 shirts, pants, shorts and sleepers. I love the thrift store! Their baby clothes are like new. In fact, some of them even still have the tags on them. Tru is mostly wearing 12-18 months now.

 

Dear God, I pray that You will help me and DH to do a good job raising Tru and that we will raise him with love and patience and that we will train him up in the way he should go. Thank You for all of Your blessings on us. In Jesus’ name, amen.
