Micah @ 9 Months Old

Micah is nine months old today.  He is also thirty-nine weeks old.  At nine months old, Micah...

... is going to the doctor on Wednesday.  I'll update with his weight and height then.  UPDATE: Micah is 21 pounds, 2 ounces, and 28 inches long.

... is still in size 3 diapers. He is in size 18 month clothes primarily, but can still wear some 12 month.

... is a crawling machine.  He has gotten fast, and doesn't make nearly as much noise as he used to when he first started crawling.

... pulls up on everything.  He can even cruise along the furniture, but doesn't do this very often. 

... still only has two teeth.  He looks to be getting more soon.  He chews on his fingers all the time, and constantly drools.  He will bite others also.  I think he thinks his grandmother is a chew toy.

... does not stay still to eat.  He eats enough so that he doesn't feel hungry anymore, then he wants to play.  His highchair is being refinished, and we can't wait until he has someplace to sit to eat.

... fights sleep when it's time to nap.  I think he believes he's going to miss something while he's asleep.  He actually sleeps relatively well during the night.  The last week or so, he has slept through the night.  I pray it continues.

... does not trust the vacuum.  He watches it the entire time it is running.

... wants to eat anything that we are eating.  He also likes drinking out of our cup or bottle.  However, he refuses to use a sippy cup.  I don't understand.

... does not like riding in his carseat.  He wants to see what is going on around him, and he can't do that with his  carseat rear-facing.

... sometimes cries when you walk away from him.  He does this especially if it's his father walking away from him.

... has words.  He says mama and dada, and associates the correct word with Mikey and I.  We don't know which he said first.  It's like all of a sudden, he started saying both.

... goes by the nicknames Gus-Gus, Chubba, MicahMan, Maine, Junior Junior, and Sugar Bear.
