Raphael - 9 Months

Happy Tuesday! It's been a while since I posted an update about Raphael. I meant to post this a couple of weeks ago, but better late than never.

I can't believe that he's already 9 months old (he'll be 10 months soon)! In just a few months he will be a year old!

Size: I can't believe how much my baby has grown. Raphael is still continuing to gain weight. At his last appointment, he weighed a little over 17 pounds. His length/height is 26 inches. He's wearing 6-9 and 9 month sized clothing and is in size 3 diapers!

Sleep: Raphael still wakes up at least once during the night to feed. However, for the past few days he's woken up at least twice during the night. I think he might have a cold and I think it's been making him a bit fussy.

Loves: He loves playing with his brothers. It's so cute how much they love spending time with one another. Michael and Gabriel just adore their little brother so much. Raphael also loves to eat! Everyone is amazed when they see how much he's grown and how much he loves to eat. He loves to meet new people, but is hesitant when someone new wants to hold him. He also loves bath time. I think it's one of his favorite parts of the day.

Dislikes: He hates waiting for his food. He can be very impatient. I wonder where he got that from? He hates being strapped into anything. If he's in his high chair, he'll get excited when he sees his food. He gets upset when he's in his stroller, but once it gets moving...he gets so excited. I think he just loves being in motion.

Things I Want To Remember:
  • His babbling and how he tries to "talk" to us.
  • His laughter and squeals.
  • How his eyes light up when he sees his brothers. It melts my heart seeing all three of them together. Cuteness overload!
  • Our little adventures at Target and the grocery store.
Thanks for visiting!

Until next time...
