Graham Robert: 9 months

It's so sad to me that Graham is so close to being a year old; but also very exciting! We're so so close to traditional crawling, he can however backwards scoot, and arm scoot/roll to get to what he wants but still HATES being on his tummy for very long. We recently set up our trampoline and he loves to be bounced (gently) on it as long as you're holding him as well. Graham has started crying very dramatically if he feels he hasn't been held recently enough or you're not right next to him giving him attention. He's becoming a little bit more of a momma's boy, but still goes to dad if there's a choice.

 We went to Graham's nine month Well-Child-Check and were told a referral for a helmet is necessary. His flat spot just hasn't corrected on it's own like we were hoping it would and I want it fixed before it's too late. His hair is growing in thicker so it mostly hides it but you can still see it from above and it's VERY distinct when his hair is wet.

Graham is teething like crazy, I think when we felt in his mouth there were 7-8 teeth trying to come out! Poor little dude is miserable because of it. He won't take any teething toys so I'm going to try out the amber necklace we got for Hilton and see if it helps. One good thing is that he is getting really good at his pincer grasp and can now pick up treats from his high chair tray so I put lots of graham crackers on there and he gnaws on them. Still loving our Graham-man, Graham-ster, Grah-meister, and Graham-cicle.

  • Almost has four new teeth on the top, they're just under the skin
  • Might be a south-paw - he shows preference with that hand when picking things up

    This is as close to on his back picture I could get, he rolls over immediately!
