Hey, an update on Daniel at 9 months AND it’s my 900th post. Wow, I’ve had a lot to say about nothing.
Anyway, Daniel turned 9 months in December so here are his 9 month stats:
Height: 28 inches (34%)
Weight: 19 lbs 15 oz (55%)
Head: 17 3/4 inches (52%)
He’s following right along his growth curve, so that’s good. I feel like he’s huge, but he’s very averaged sized. (Relatively huge for a child with Down syndrome though.) Here are some tidbits about Daniel at 9 months:
He’s started commando crawling! He started it up just a couple weeks ago so now he’s getting into everything. His favorite things to go after are power cords and anything made of paper. Obviously.
He got a Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn puppy for Christmas and he LOVES it. His eyes light up when it starts singing and then he smiles and dances. It’s adorable.
Still no teeth.
He likes every food we’ve fed him, but still doesn’t really chew so much as suck food off a spoon. We’ll be working on this with his OT and speech therapist in the coming months.
He seems like he’s less interested in taking a bottle, but he doesn’t drink out of a cup yet, so I’m not sure where that’s gonna go.
He continues to be the most adorable baby ever.
