Zachary is 9 months old!

My littlest mister is 9 months old.  That's so close to one year.  So close.

Here is what Zacher is like at 9 months old:

  • He weighs 18 lbs 7 oz, which is in the 25th percentile.  His growth curve is so beautiful that I literally asked for a printout of it so I could look at it over and over.  I joke about framing it and putting it on the wall...I'll let you decide if I'm actually joking.  ;)  For a mother of two sons with Failure to Thrive, you must understand how exciting it is for me to see such a perfect growth curve!
  • He measures 28.25 inches, which is in the 32nd percentile.
  • He has a giant head in the 79th percentile.

  • He started out his 9th month wearing 3-6 month clothes, but shortly after that graduated to 6-9 month clothes, which happen to fit him splendidly.
  • He wears size 3 diapers.
  • He has six teeth (four on top and two on bottom) and doesn't seem to be too close to getting more any time soon.
  • He weaned from nursing when he was 8 months old, which was an easier transition for him than it was for his sentimental mommy.  :(
  • He mimics sounds (grunts, coughs, and vowels).
  • He has started to cruise around furniture.
  • He has started to use his pincer grasp.
  • He sometimes waves "hello."
  • He has figured out how to open cupboard doors, unfortunately!
  • He plays peek-a-boo.
  • He's pretty mild-mannered, other than the fact that he loves getting into mischief!

(Due to my slackerness, this blog post was published a month after Zach turned 9 months, and boy has he changed in the past month!  Nevertheless, I have recorded milestones as they were at 9 months old.)

Here are some pictures of Zachary from the past three months, starting with the most recent.
