Tripp- 9 month update

I am not sure where time has gone but here we are and Tripp is 9 months old!

He is crawling like a champ, pulling up and walking along furniture.  He will even take his hands off and stand solo for a few seconds.

He babbles like crazy and is quite the ham.  He LOVES food and we are still breastfeeding. I am so proud to say we have made it to 9 months! It hasn’t been the easiest journey but we have hit our stride (knock on wood).

We finally sleep trained and he is sleeping SO much better.  So this is one HAPPY mama.  Thanks to preciouslittlesleep, where I got my tips and tricks to take the plunge! And the training was so simple and went very smoothly.  He loves his straw cups now so the Doctor gave us the go ahead to say bye bye to bottles when we do feed him frozen milk.   You would think he would be a chunk with how much he loves food and milk but he is still just 18.5 lbs.  He is 28inches long and his head is in the 99th percentile (for all the brains!!!).

Tripp’s favorite toys are cars and he loves to tear up magazines. He loves bath time and anything that involves him getting to play outside.  Thank goodness we have had awesome winter weather here in Texas.

I cannot believe the next update will be at a year old.  Time flies but I love getting to see him learn and grow!

The photo below is from a fun little Valentine’s Day shoot we did. It took several goldfish and yogurt puffs to get this kid to sit still and cooperate for a few good shots. Love him so much!

Favorite Baby Products

Hey Y’all! I wanted to write a recap post of my favorite products from Newborn through 6months.  I am hoping through the stages of Tripp’s childhood I can recap my favorite items. Some of these items we still use regularly!

Hope you can find some of these items useful!

Probiotics-We liked Gerber Soothe. Really helped with regulating Tripp’s gut system especially since I was Group B Strep positive so I had to have antibiotics during birth.

Magic Merlin Sleep Suit– Tripp HATED being swaddled but loves this suit to sleep in.  It kept him cool enough in the Texas heat (with just a diaper underneath) but warm enough in the winter months when we put pj’s underneath).

Adan and Anis Swaddle blankets– We didn’t swaddle but these make the easiest covers for breastfeeding and were the perfect lightweight blanket in the summer for baby!screen-shot-2017-01-11-at-11-17-31-am
