Landon is 9 months and SO BIG! At his 9 month checkup he weighed in at 20 pounds 15 ounces (50th percentile) and measured at 30 inches (95th percentile!). His head is finally catching up and comes in at 46.5 cm (75th percentile). He two vaccine shots and 1 flu shot and didn't cry much at all. His pediatrician commented on his curiosity. Landon does not miss anything going on around him. He will watch and listen to everything happening around him.
Landon is now in the exploring phase. He examines every toy to see what it can do...he will push it, shake it, and chew on it. He likes to crawl around to check everything out, he pulls himself up to stand, and cruises the furniture like a pro. He really wants to climb, but hasn't succeeded...yet. He is a great eater and will try anything. If he doesn't like something, he has this little scream to let us know he isn't pleased with the taste.
His biggest accomplishment is that he has FINALLY stopped spitting up. Over the past month his spitting issue has subsided. He occasionally spits up (like all babies do), but doesn't have to have a bib around his neck all day.
Landon got his first hair cut. Mommy's good friend and hair dresser cut his hair on Oct. 24th.
