9 Months!

Holy cow, we are almost to double digits! It's amazing how fast this first year is flying by.

Height: 29", 76th percentile
Weight: 22 lbs 7.4 oz, 89th percentile
Head Circumference: 19.29", >99th percentile
Clothing: 18-24 months
Diapers: Size 4

-Tuck's head is measuring on the large size (as all Arnold babies tend to do) so we are getting sent over to Randall Children's Hospital tomorrow for an ultrasound to make sure it's just the Arnold genes contributing to the large head and not a build up of fluid, etc.... Our doctor doesn't seem worried, but figured we better be on the safe side and just check.

-Tucker has become a total food lover lately. He is ALWAYS hungry! His favorite foods (although he doesn't seem too picky yet) are greek yogurt, cereal bars, and graham crackers. He's eating a solid three meals on top of his regular nursing sessions, as well as some snacks throughout the day. If he can put it away this fast already, I'm slightly scared for the teenage years.

-We had some beautiful weather this last month, and Tucker got to experience some of the fun that comes with the sunshine :) He sucked all the juice out of the watermelon, and had a great time splashing away in his makeshift 'pool'

- I would love to say, "this is the month that sleep got better!", but that would be a lie. We did have one sleep through the night happen when Drew was gone in Germany, but other than that, he's still up at least twice a night. He doesn't usually eat in the night until closer to 4am, but he usually wakes up for a paci, a roll over, or just because he can't possibly be without me (please note my very tired sarcasm here ;))

- We got two teeth this month! They aren't quite all the way in, but they have finally broken through the gums, and boy are they sharp!

-I've noticed Tuck's hair starting to get darker and longer. With the length, his little fuzz that has always stuck straight up in the back, is starting to start laying flat. I can't believe how much it makes him seem less like my  little baby :(

- Tucker's favorite toy is paper! His favorite is to quickly sneak some in his mouth while I have my back turned so that he can slobber it down to goo and eat it. We got a phone book dropped on our porch the other day and I decided to go ahead and let Tuck have the time of his life with it. He seemed pretty pleased with his pile of crumpled papers by the end. 

We love you sweet Tuck! Happy 9 months!
