Jayden is 9 months old!



I haven't been keeping up with Jayden's blog! Sorry, I've been so busy with Eli's blog, but I will try to update every month.
We went to Jayden's 9 month appt yesterday. He weighs 18 lbs 3 oz, which puts him in the 10th percentile! and he is 29 in long, which puts him in the 75th percentile! He loves to eat my moms soups, she blends them for him, but he won't put on too much weight! The doctor said not too worry as long as he is eating and gaining some weight at each appt. I think he will just be long and skinny like his daddy. (Yes, Speedy was super skinny until he was 21!) He already has 6 teeth, yeah you think he would put them to good use : )! The two lower teeth came in at 6 months, the two top but not dead center, came in at 8 months, and the middle top two teeth came in close to 9 months. He sleeps pretty well too. He has been sleeping through the night since he was 3 months old, but will wake up sometimes in the middle of the night. Most of the time he cries for a couple of minutes and goes right back to sleep. He also takes 3 naps during the day, after breakfast, after lunch and after dinner. They are ususally short- 30 minutes, and the one after lunch is the longest- sometimes 2 hours! He is definetely "creeping", and has been since he was 7 months old. He started picking himself from sitting position to standing and even takes a few steps while holding on. He gets on all fours and crawls a couple of steps, but that's it! His pediatrician said his son never crawled and walked at 8 1/2 months. He said not to worry about it either because Jayden is healthy.
Jayden loves dancing with mommy and playing with daddy. I just started getting him sports balls and he loves them! We were at the Nike store and I found the cutest, small soccer ball. He would not let the guy ring it up! He had to bring his scanner gun while Jayden held the ball.
Enjoy the pictures!
