Mark is 11 months now (HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?? HOW? HOW?) and so, I figured it’s about time to share his 4, 6, and 9-months stats with you. Clearly, the past nine months have gotten away from me in blog-land.
So, at four months, Mark weighed 16 pounds, 10 ounces. He was 27 inches tall. His thighs were deliciously fat and he was working on rolling over. He was laughing and generally delighting us with his friendly, happy personality.
At six months, he weighed 18 pounds, 12 ounces and was 28 inches tall. Almost exactly on his six-month birthday, he pushed through his first two teeth in quick succession. He also started army crawling somewhere around this time but refused to even consider the possibility of sitting. As in, “Why should I sit? You don’t go anywhere when you sit!”
Poor second child – I didn’t manage to take a picture of his first teeth until six weeks after he grew them (or ever blog about them, unlike Ellie)! 🙂
At nine months, he weighed 20 pounds, 3 ounces and was 30 inches tall. He still wasn’t interested in sitting but was (and still continues to be) oh so interested in everything Ellie does. He was a super fast tummy crawler and was starting to pull up on things. It amazed us (and still does) how quickly he has become a very present part of our family, rather than just a baby who needs to be held and fed!
And now, at 11 1/2 months, Mark is cruising along couches, letting go and standing by himself, crawling on all fours, making face at us when we don’t do what he wants, and generally amazing us with his kind heart and constant motion. He has six teeth and has kept me up many a night because of them. Despite that, we sure do love him!!
I love my little boy!
