Coen: 9 Month Update


 Coen’s 9 month Update

Two weeks ago Coen turned 9 months.  It’s always hard getting his monthly pics because he can be a little cranky at night.  I have also found he is not a fan of the sticker on his chest anymore!  Coen is still that happy go lucky guy that gets a bit fussy at night when tired but almost always has a smile.  He is intrigued by new people and always flashes his toothless grin for them.  He loves being outside and everyday he amazes me by learning something new.  I am such a proud momma!

Height: No clue!

Weight:  We had to push off his month appointment so I am not sure. I will find out next week!

Likes: Rolling around, babbling, spending time outside, sitting up, walks, the park, BBQs and meeting new people.  At 9 months he was still not crawling or even close to it.   He also likes standing while playing with his activity table.

Dislikes: Peas, Naps at home…he naps great at daycare.

Sleep: He is sleeping about the same anywhere from 7:30 to 5-6 with a feeding at around 5.  I really wish he would just sleep straight through but not sure how to break this habit.  He also doesn’t always fall back to sleep after a feeding.  I think he is just not a great sleeper and doesn’t need quite as much as he used to.  He always leaves us guessing.  He will nap great at daycare but not at home.  I am not sure why?  He will take 2 naps from 1-2 hours but at home he will fight naps and only take 1/2 hour naps.  I have tried to recreate the same routine but he just won’t sleep longer.  I say he just wants to spend more time with mommy!

Eating:   I am still breastfeeding/pumping and he eats anywhere from 2-4 hours.    He is now having 3 meals a day of solids of mostly fruits and veggies.  I will be pushing out his feedings to at least 3 hours.  He is just a big snacker.

Diapers:  We were still in 3’s most of the month but now on to size 4s.  We went through  200ish diapers this month.  I think my numbers are off….either way I think our stockpiling while pregnant paid off and we will make a year without buying one diaper! (Besides swimmers)

Clothes:  He is now in 9-12 Month clothing.  He has some 9 month stuff that he can still squeeze into and then some of the 12 month clothes are getting tight depending on brand.




Coen: 8 Month Update

Coen’s 8 month Update

I really am slacking on updates.  If there was only more time in the day…..of course if there was I would probably just use it spending time with this cutie!




Height: 28ish

Weight:  I would assume close to 20.5-21lbs.  We will find out at his 9 month appointment.

Likes: Rolling around, babbling, spending time outside, sitting up, walks, BBQs and meeting new people.  He is still not crawling or even close to it.  Trying not to let it bother me as every baby develops on their own time.

Dislikes: Getting a third nap, being overtired, bellyaches, being bored!




Sleep: We decided to sleep train again this month which went great.  He now sleeps anywhere from 6:30-7 to 6:30 with a feeding at around 5.  I am fine with this!  We were waking a lot during the night the past few months.  Why did we not do this sooner?

Eating:  We went to the Dr about his belly issues with solids and started off real slow.  We give him about 1/2 package in morning and 1/2 at night which will will slowly increase.  He tends to get constipated so the Dr. has us giving a lot of P foods and some miralax as needed.  I am still going strong breastfeeding/pumping and he eats anywhere from 2-4 hours.




Diapers:  We are still in 3’s.  We went through 204ish diapers this month.  Lot’s of blowouts…maybe time to move up to size 4s?

Clothes:  Mostly 6-9 Month clothing.  He has some 12 month stuff that he can fit into.
