Jack is 9 months old today, and we had his check-up this morning. He weighs 24 lbs, 3 oz, is 29.5 inches long and has a head circumference of 18 1/4", all of which are in the 90th percentile. He's finally on the charts! He had to get one shot (Hep B), so that's better than the three he got at the last visit.
We also went to the doctor last Wednesday after three straight nights of not great sleeping. Turns out our poor little man had a double ear infection. Nothing a little Amoxicillin can't cure, but we still hate to see him uncomfortable.
We survived our first weekend away without Jack this weekend. Jason and I were in Los Gatos, CA for my friend Laura's wedding, and Jack stayed with Grandma & Grandpa Clayton. (More on the wedding in the next post - it deserves its own post as soon as my camera battery charges. Don't worry, I won't post all of the 250 pictures that I took!). They said he was a very good boy while we were gone.
He is now officially crawling all over the place and getting into everything. He seems to be magnetically drawn to electronics, dog food and any shoes we leave laying around. He's going to start hearing "no" pretty regularly now. He's pulling up on everything and starting to do a little bit of "cruising" around furniture as his confidence increases.
He is cutting his 3rd tooth (all on the bottom) with a couple on the top coming soon we think.
He is definitely loving his new-found freedom and is exploring all of the rooms of our house. It's fun to watch him see and touch new things.
