Greyson James: 9 Month Update

Greyson James: 9 Month Update | |

What a week it’s been in the Daniel household! I not only had a husband who succumbed to allergies all weekend, but have a teething baby on top of his runny nose – becoming more like a minor sinus infection. Boogies everywhere! Poor guy barely gets any sleep due to phlegm and not being able to breathe. Our Nose Frieda has been a Godsend although he barely lets us get in there anymore since we’ve been using all weekend. I just pray that his pain subsides and these boogies begin to pass.

With all the sickies at home it made blogging a touch challenging, but here is Greyson’s 9 month update! 9 months, guys. That means it’s only three short months until he’s one! But, I’m holding onto my little baby while I can – this past month was full of all kinds of new milestones and he’s been hard to contain with all this crawling going on!

Date: December 10, 2016
Weight: 22 lbs (eek!)

Celebrated: seeing Santa for the first time! I was very curious about him and even managed to not shed one tear! I was able to get my photo taken even with Murphy, too.

Teeth: I still have eight teeth (4 up top and bottom), but I’m beginning to teethe in the back now which has me fussy with a bout of diarrhea and a runny nose. Mommy and Daddy brush my new teeth now with my very own toothbrush and fluoride-free toothpaste! I think it’s so funny when they brush- I also love playing in the bathroom mirrors.

Enjoys: I really enjoy learning new things on my own, even though I can sometimes get frustrated if I don’t succeed right away. Toys that have latches or flaps are my favorite as well as my new table that I can climb up to. Climbing is my new favorite thing to do, too, and I even try to move from one surface to another like the coffee table to the sofa! I’ll be walking in no time I’m sure of it. I also like to take toys and purposefully drop them to watch someone pick it back up. I’ll do this over and over again!

Dislikes: the changing table! I don’t like it when Mommy lays me down on it to change my diaper or clothes. She keeps me from sitting up or twisting around. I also hate that boogie sucker Mommy and Daddy use…(even though it helps him breathe tremendously!).

Milestones: Thankfully separation anxiety, which is supposed to peak at this age, hasn’t really bothered me. I am pretty friendly with everyone (especially the ladies), but if I could choose I’d still pick Mommy or Daddy over a stranger. I am a busy-body now too as I’ve learned to officially crawl on my hands and knees – I’m booking it all over the place! I love standing up on furniture and have even taken a couple steps on my own!

Learning: what “no” means and actually following it as I’m still learning the boundaries that Mommy sets.

Sad to not have been able to catch any smiley photos of him this time around, but this poor guy hasn’t been feeling 100%. He’s a trooper, though, and I can’t say no to all the extra snuggles lately.

I was able to finish the keepsake ornament this weekend too! Bought some acrylic paints from Target and attempted to handletter my best “first Christmas.” I love how it turned out and making this ornament will help me keep Greyson tiny forever 🙂
