Archie's 9 Month Update

I honestly cant believe he is 9 months!? Where has the time gone recently, I actually have a lump at the back of my throat knowing in 3 months time he will be a 1 year old, and that soon I need to start planning a 1st Birthday party. So I will start with his weight, I got him weighed at the clinic 2 weeks ago and he was 20lb 7oz - I will have to get him weighed again soon. He is wearing 12-18 month tops and 9-12 month bottoms, he is now wearing size 2 shoes, we bought him his first pair of pre walkers. He has just cut his first 2 teeth at the bottom and I can also see his 2 top teeth under the gums. 

His hair is growing so thick on the top but less round the back, its a light blonde colour when you look at it in natural light. His eyes are still blue and I'm positive they will stay that way as we all have blue eyes. He has got the scrummiest chubby cheeks ever, his arms are pretty chunky too and often his tops are tight on his arms. 

He started crawling at 7 1/2 months old, and a couple of weeks ago he learnt how to pull himself up to standing and also climb the stairs. He is so quick at crawling and pulling up now he is catching his big sister up. He can walk assisted, so with a push along walker, but its very early stages and he does fall down and we have to hold the front so he doesnt zoom off and fall with it. He is getting into everything, all the kitchen cupboards, the dvd drawer and also the stairs, so we have had to start shutting our lounge door. 

He is so vocal now, he babbles away all the time and its the sweetest noise to listen too ever, he can say mama, dada and baba. He is so close to clapping his hands as well which is so sweet, he also opens and closes his hands for a mini wave when saying goodbye. He is so happy all of the time, he seems happy to go to anyone, even at soft play he climbed onto another womans lap! Where as his sister was a bit more reserved with people she didn't see often. Archie seems so friendly and outgoing, he is honestly so sweet and loving. When we lay down with him he will lay his head on you or the pillow and it melts my heart. 

He still sleeps through the night and has done since he was just over a month old, he only wakes if he is unwell which has been a lot recently. He has 4 7oz bottles a day and also 3 meals a day, he feeds himself finger foods or will feed himself using a spoon, although when we are out or in a rush I do feed him. His favourite food at the moment is tomatoes, I buy salad tomatoes and cut them into 4 and he loves eating them, but he does leave the skin. 

Archie loves playing with his toot toot garage the most, and loves any toy with music and lights, he also loves playing with Isla's babies and touching their faces. He really loves interacting, and mostly loves his sister. He watches her all the time and follows her everywhere, he loves it when she plays cars with him. Archie also loves animals, he is always fascinated by them and laughs his head off at my parents dog, especially when he wags his tail. 

I think that is all I can think of for now, he makes us all so happy and he is so funny to watch, his little reactions are hilarious too. I am just enjoying him so much and making the most of my time with him, we are looking forward to the next few months and celebrating his Birthday. I wonder if he will be walking? His big sister walked at 10 1/2 months and was running by her 1st Birthday, so we will have to wait and see. 

Did your children hit milestones at the same time as their siblings?
