Abraham: 9 Months

Abraham turned 9 months old the day before his adoption finalized.  I wrote in a prior update on him that I was hoping to finalize before he turned 9 months old, we'll call it close enough.

 Our little pipsqueak is constantly changing.  He is very mobile and into everything.  He's moved beyond doing the sea lion crawl to crawling for real most of the time.

He pulls up to standing all the time and is starting to figure out how to get back down all on his own.

We had to put up a baby gate at the bottom of the steps because he's learned how to climb them.  He's still not talking much beyond da da and growling.

Growing is still not his strong suit.  He's still weighing in at about 16.5 lbs (same as a month ago).  In his defense he did go through a bout of illness this month and lost about half a pound and then had to gain it back.  We see his GI doctor again for a check-up on Friday, so we'll see what she has to say about it.

He went from sleeping through the night to being back up once somewhere between 2-5 am.  I think his new top two teeth that are working their way in are to blame.  I'm working on getting back off of wanting a bottle then, but we are also hard up to not give him a bottle anytime he will take one given his slow weight gain.

I can't believe he will be a year old in just a few short months.  This time with his has just flown by.
