Donovan had his 9 month appointment on Friday. He is 22.8 pounds and 29 inches tall and doing great. We also started him back on the regular formula and he doesn’t seem to be having any problems with it like he was in the first couple of months.
Also on Friday we received the Little Playground that I ordered from Target. We ordered two sets and put them in our bedroom so now we have a safe place to put him that he can play in and not have to deal with the dogs, and their hair. Here’s a shot of what it looks like all set up.
It’s great, he loves playing in it which is nice for us cause we can leave him in there and go take care of some things around the house…
Other then that it’s just a few steps at a time. He is just starting to crawl, he still does the stomach drag thing but now on the carpet he’ll lift his stomach off of the ground and actually crawl. He doesn’t do it as much on the hardwood floor yet but I think that’s only a matter of time, it’s harder on his knees and he slides on it more. He is taking a few steps now without holding onto anything but he has to do it from a wall. When he’s in his play area if I’m sitting in the center he’ll use the walls to walk as close to me as he can and then turn around, let go, and take 3 or 4 steps into my arms.
