On Sunday Will turned 9 months old! I can not believe that he is that old. We celebrated by having our friends, the Tipton’s, over for dinner. Yummy food with great friends.
Monday Will had his 9 month check up. Thankfully, he did not have to get any shots this time! Will weighed 17 lbs. 13 oz. and was 27 1/4 inches long. He also had to have his hemoglobin levels checked and everything was normal. Dr. Swarr was a little concerned with his height because it has seemed to plateau but we are not to be overly concerned at this point – just wait to see how much he has grown at his 12 month check-up.
Will is so much fun these days – he loves to play with his toys and chase PepperAnn all around the house. He also loves to climb the stairs and eat! Some of the new things Will likes to eat are grilled cheese sandwich, ravioli, mashed potatoes and goldfish crackers.
The past few weeks Bill and I have found some awesome deals on new toys and fall/winter clothes for Will. We got about 10 new toys from various thrift stores for a grand total of $40! They had a retail value of well over $200 – we were proud of ourselves. We also got Will 10 practically new outfits at a consignment sale for dirt cheap. He is set!
This week we need to take Will’s 9 month pictures – hopefully by the end of the week!
