Now that Walter can move, he does not stop! He crawls everywhere FAST and is now starting to pull up on things- always looking for things to get into.

9 Months

Walter is another month older! I don't know how it happened, but it did. It has been a very busy month for him.  And I know I say this every month, but his personality is really starting to shine.  He is definitely the son of Jesse and me, he is really shy, and doesn't really like to be in large noisy groups.
Some things about Walter at 9 months:

  • Stats: 19 lbs 1 oz (30%), 28 inches (47%), head: 18 inches (82%)- he's a pretty small boy with a massive head, it's adorable :)
  • Wearing size 2 diapers and mostly 12 month clothes
  • Sleeping for about 10-11 hours straight at night, then eats and goes back to sleep for about an hour
  • Takes 2 naps a day
  • He is crawling! He got it down a week ago, and has been on the move ever since!
  • He has learned how to stand up in his crib, which is making for some hard nights and some no nap days.  He stands up and then just cries until someone comes to get him
  • He is just getting over having RSV- that was no fun at all and we are so happy it is gone!
  • Even though he loves to crawl, he has become quite attached to me and usually wants to sit on my lap and play with toys instead of sitting on the floor alone.  I love how much he loves to sit with me- I never get anything done, but I don't care, sitting with him is more important anyway
  • His favorite book is Brown Bear Brown Bear
  • He thinks it is hilarious when Jesse or I get hurt- that is the only time that he will really laugh
  • He gives me lots of open mouth kisses
  • He mimicks some noises that we make, like "dada mama"
  • He likes to stick his tongue out at us
  • He is eating like crazy now, always wanting something
  • He has two bottom teeth and one of his top ones is coming through

He sure does make me tired some days, but Walter is a little angel.  He is growing so fast, and pretty soon he will be a year old! Love my little Bugs!!

My Little Helper

I can't get over how much I love spending every single day with my little Bugs.  He was still feeling like crap today, but I tried to keep him as happy and distracted as possible.  So we decided to make some yummy cheerios treats, kinda like rice crispy treats but with cheerios and peanut butter.  He's a good little helper :)

Sick Sick Sick

I took Walter to the doctors today.  He is sick with a whole host of good things (not.)  He is starting to get his top teeth, so that's hurting him, he had a fever of 101 degrees, he has an ear infection in both ears, and to top it all off, he has RSV.  I can't even imagine how awful he must feel, but he is seriously still so happy.  I cannot believe what an angel I have.  I would have never guessed that all of that was going on in his little body.  I am so glad that I took him in today and got him started on some medication.  There really is nothing we can do for the RSV at this point, just hope that it doesn't get worse.  I am praying like crazy that he starts feeling better so very very soon! It's just not fair for him to have to deal with all of this at once, and I hate that I can do nothing about it! I just breaks my heart to see him so miserable..

Sick Days

Poor little Bugs has been sick for the last 4 days with an awful cold.  He has a terrible cough and a nose that will not stop running.  His cough is really starting to scare me, it seems to be getting worse and I know that lots of babies are getting RSV this year, so I'm going to see if his doctor will take a look at him tomorrow.
Luckily Jesse has been home for the past 3 days, and so it's been a lot more fun around here for Walter.
He has been so happy even though he's felt like crap, and we have filled our days with warm baths, endless tissues and building forts with blankets.  Let's hope this sick stuff goes away soon!
