Nine Months!

Well, nine months and one week old as of today! Theodore is growing up fast.

He had his nine month checkup last week, and weighs 16lbs 10.5 oz. This still has him in the 3rd percentile, but he's gaining steadily and proportional in height and weight, so everyone's happy with that. We did find out he is somewhat anemic, so we have been giving iron supplements. This was something we'd been aware was possible due to the fact he was early and low birthweight, so not a huge surprise and we are working with the doctor to monitor it. Otherwise he is very well, with new teeth pushing all the time and endless enthusiasm and interest in the world around him. No crawling yet, but he'll get there soon!

We've had a fun few weeks since I last updated. Billy and I celebrated our eight year wedding anniversary, and I had my 32nd birthday (I'll be celebrating that with Billy later this month). On birthdays, Teddy has a second cousin, Carson, who lives in California and he turned one at the end of May. We went to his birthday party, which was great fun!

We've also had lots of day visitors, like my friend Lindsay from undergrad and her family. Teddy enjoyed playing with her two lovely girls!

Other than that, we have been enjoying the warm weather (and our new patio furniture!) and just doing our daily routines. We have lots of guests coming to visit shortly: Auntie Diana comes from the 24th to 30th, Nigel will be here July 1st to 5th, and Grandma Carole and Granddad Bill will be here the 6th to 11th! So we will be happy and busy around here.

As always, a video and pictures!

At lunch in Mountain View on the 30th:
