Beau at 9 months

I'm still having picture uploading problems on the blog, so for now it's just a boring word post.  :)

Stats:  Beau is growing in height (now 28.5" in 50th percentile) but has actually dropped weight percentiles from 6 to 9 months.  He is now 18 lbs 1 oz and only in the 17th percentile.   The doctor was concerned about his drop in weight, but attributed some to his recent illness.  He also was slightly anemic so we started back with some iron drops.  Who knew this little chunkster was going to be considered too skinny?!  He is still wearing size 12 month clothes, which is the same size he has been wearing since November! 

Sleeping:  I was fairly certain we were over the hump with sleep training.  He went 3+ weeks of sleeping through the night, but after the illness, he has had a major regression... he was up 3 times last night.... sigh... yawn...  He takes 1 long 2-3 hour nap morning and usually a very short car nap in the afternoon on the way to/from school and practices for his bros. 

Eating:  Again, another regression.  He is really fighting puréed foods (which I'm completely fine with).  I prefer moving to solids as quickly as possible.  Beau has been eating table food for a couple of months now but he can be a pretty finicky eater.  I was blessed with two really good eaters, so this is new territory for this veteran mom.  Beau is given a variety of foods but really has only liked/eaten a handful of them well.  He is still mostly playing with (and making a mess with) his food.  We are trying hard to increase his intake! 

Motor:  Rolling everywhere!  He also gets into crawl position and rocks back and forth.  It's coming!  He also likes to stand holding onto your hands.  The only thing he doesn't like is being set down and left.  He wants attention at all times. 

Play: He has the sweetest giggles and loves to be tickled, play peak-a-boo and clap his hands.  Everything goes in his mouth.  The big bros have renamed him "Mrs. Hahn" and have been calling him that for at least a month.  Looks like it stuck.  We asked Trey where that came from and he said, "my brain."  Lol.  Kids are funny!  If I call him Beau, Charlie is quick to correct me and say, "you mean Mrs. Hahn?."  Hope Beau, I mean Mrs. Hahn, doesn't mind.

Easter and RSV

We've been busy around here!  We had a great Easter celebrating with good friends and food!  The boys loved all of the Easter festivities, especially dying eggs, egg hunts and the Easter bunny!

We even made it to the lake and spent an afternoon on "the beach."

The following week was spent at home.  Beau was taken to the dr and was diagnosed with RSV.  His O2 stats were really low and he almost got sent to the hospital.  Thankfully the nebulizer treatments worked quickly and he started to bounce back.  Sick babies are so pitiful!

Charlie riding big red:

Surfer dudes (wearing outfits from Unk and Aunt Kim's honeymoon in Hawaii)!  Beau has one too, but he was napping...

Beau was less than thrilled for his bean bag cuddle session with big bros:

Feeling better!

Go Texas Day pictures at preschool!

KINDER CAMP at Trey's new school!

Trey started tball and LOVES IT!   He especially loved being "Darth Vader" aka the catcher.  He also got a hit from a coachs' pitch!  Go Dodgers!

Shelley's 40th birthday party!  Celebrated with some of the neighborhood friends

We went over to one of Phils' co-workers houses.  He has a bunch of animals: turtles, parakeets, scorpion, tarantuala, snakes, dogs, cats, parots.... it was quite literally a zoo.

 After all of this sickness and a traveling hubby, this mama enjoyed some time with the girls! Cheers!

Petting zoo.  There were:  bunnies, baby chicks, chickens, ducks, pigs, guinea pigs, goats, llamas and about 5,000 kids.  Poor animals!
