9 Months Old

We took James and Amelie to their well-child checks today. James just turned 9 months old a few days ago.

I had to wake him about 20 minutes in to his afternoon nap for the appointment, but he was a very good sport -- probably because there were no shots. James was also more amenable to being photographed than Amelie was.

Here are those vital statistics!

Length: 27 inches - 11th percentile
Weight: 19 pounds, 5 ounces - 30th percentile
Head Circumference: 46 centimeters - 70th percentile

It looks like he's pretty much following the same curve from his last visit. This is the chart I use to calculate the percentiles.

New developments since his 6-month appointment:

  • Babbling many more syllables
  • Sitting very well
  • Scooting himself around in a circle on his butt (slooooowly)
  • Eating many more foods and feeding himself
  • Using a pincer grasp
  • Has a better sense of humor
  • Recognizing and responding to his name and the words Mama, Dada, Sister, Amelie, Schroeder, and possibly binky 
  • Enjoys drinking water from a sippy cup and an open cup
