9 months!

Yes it's true, I can hardly believe it myself. We went to Campbell's 9 month appointment yesterday. I've become wiser in my years of motherhood. After the very stressful doctor's appt last time with both boys, I decided to just pick up Campbell from daycare and let Justin pick up Nolan. Good thing....once again (no big shock here) it was a 4:15 appt and I walked out of there last car in the parking lot at 6:30. Ugh. Why do I torture myself?

The newest thing we're dealing with this month is that Campbell has learned how to pull up on everything including his crib. This makes it difficult to lay him down half-way sleepy like we used to and walk out the room. Now if we do that, as soon as we walk out he just POPS right up and stands in his crib but has no idea how to get back down. So we go back and forth, back and forth laying him back down only for him to POP right back up again. Our solution, you ask? Get him completely milk drunk and make sure he's out cold. Yes, we'll probably regret it down the road in three months when we no longer give bottles at night but until then, it's working!

We're going on a week of diaper disasters so I told the doctor how our washer is almost smokin' from being overworked from all the laundry lately. She saved the day and gave us a lactose free formula to use for a few days until this tummy bug passes.

So here are Cam's stats:
Weight: 22 lbs 8 oz. (75th percentile)
Height: 28 3/4" (60th percentile)
Head: 46 cm (75th percentile)
Cute factor: off the charts


  1. So cute!! I just want to squeeze his cheeks! I guess I didn't realize he and Ben were only 5 months apart.

    We were on a scooter ride the other day and Hank would NOT leave your driveway. He kept saying he was just going to "check" to see if Nolan was home. I guess we need to get together soon so they can play.

    On that doctor thing, just switch! You will be glad you did, we are so happy with our new doctor! It's not worth it to torture yourself.

  2. Oh Andrea, he is the cutest!!! We went for our 9 month yesterday and Gavin and Campbell are very similar in stats. I will update our blog soon. Hope he gets to feeling better. Have a great weekend!

  3. Campbell is so cute! Those are great pictures!
