9 Month Checkup

Zachary turned 9 months on April 5th and we finally went to his 9 month check up this morning. He did great. Mommy got a lecture on feeding him in the middle of the night when he wakes up. I know I shouldn't be feeding him, but it's the only way he'll go back to sleep. We're going to have to give him "tough love" and let him cry it out again. Doctor's orders! I hate that.

On happier note he hit all the marks for height and weight. He is officially 22.1 lbs (75th percentile), 29 inches long (75th percentile), and 18 1/2 inches in head circumference (90th percentile). That boy has big brains. :) I told the doctor that he took after Da-Da on that one.

Zach is doing great in other areas as well. He says Da-Da VERY well along with other words such as ba-ba, ga-ga, and something that sounds like Hi! Still no Ma-Ma yet. boo hoo. I think it's just because he's saving it up for night when he can yell it at the top of his lungs. That will be one of those nights when I go rushing into his room to pick him up. That will be hard.
He is rocking back and forth on all fours too. He can scoot backwards, but not forwards just yet. He loves to stand with the support of Ma-Ma, Da-Da, or Ashleigh. He has also been displaying more stranger anxiety lately too and when I leave to go to work in the morning he cries. Poor little guy. But the doctor said it's all on target with what he's supposed to be doing at this age. So all is good.

Zach is growing up fast. He already looks like a little man and his baby rolls are going away.
Will post more pictures soon.
