Levi is 9 Months Old
Levi turned 9 months old on Friday. On his 9 month birthday, he stood up by himself. He actually let go and stood for about five seconds. We cheered and cheered for him. He is still a delight and these past nine months have flown by.
Levi is still exclusively breastfed. He still has a pretty strong gag reflex. We decided to try solid foods once again a few days ago. Needless to say, it was very apparent he just isn't ready yet. He still continues to grow, so we aren't concerned. He will occassionally drink diluted apple juice through a straw but only just for fun. He is cutting several new teeth at this time. That has made him a little fussy but nothing bad, just some extra cuddling is needed. He still loves to be carried around in the sling. It makes it very easy in stores since he is so content being toted around leaving the basket seat for Josiah or the ability to just grab the single stroller versus the double.
I don't know if it's because he's the baby of the family or what, but he seems more fragile than the other two. Or maybe he's just smaller boned than the others. Or maybe he's got his Mama wrapped around his little finger. I've been trying on clothes that Caleb and Josiah have worn and they are so baggy on him. He's still as cute as can be though. Three months until he turns one will go by way too fast!
