Sorry I haven't been updated as frequently.
Mr. Genius has informed me that it is imperative that I update my blog.
So here I am.
Yesterday we had Romeo's 9 month check up. He weighed in at 17 lbs. Such a difference from his 22 lbs big brother at the same age. He is only in the 10th or 12th percentile in weight. So low in fact the Dr. has asked me to give him a bottle twice a day. (I nurse the rest of the feedings)
I find this all amusing due to the fact that this boy eats as though each meal is his first meal EVER.
I think that I have mentioned before that I make his baby food. So it is hard to measure exactly how much he is eating. I figure he is eating about 2-3 jars of baby food per meal then he will eat a whole piece of whatever fruit (banana, mango) I put in front of him then he is asking for more.
He has been known to eat a whole can of carrots along with a BIG bowl full of puffs also.
Then when I cut off his food supply and let him down he crawls all over the floor looking for whatever food I didn't sweep up.
It doesn't even have to be food, today I caught him trying to each a piece of sheet rock that somehow fell down onto the floor.
This boy sure does keep me on my toes.
I can't decide if Romeo is smaller because I am still nursing him or if he is just smaller built. I kind of think that it is a little bit of both.
Wild man has always been a big boy but I only got to nurse him for a little over 5 months.
My milk supply myseriously disappeared.
And then there was a lot of crying, wailing and nashing of teeth.
I told Mr. Genius that he was over reacting, and that the money out of the budget for formula would not take away his ice cream.
He was ok after that.
Yesterday Romeo also started crawling up the stairs. By today he is a master at it. Going up the stairs that is, not going down.
Because that would make my life easier if he could also go down the stairs.
In the past 3 weeks Romeo has also gotten 5 teeth! 2 more are coming right behind them. The fang teeth were the first to come in. He looks so funny. We call him our Vampire child.
Here is a close up. You can barely see the most resent tooth, one of the front top teeth.
Since I am still nursing him I think it is a good thing that both the front teeth haven't come in yet.
Although he does have this habit now of grinding his teeth together now.
Augh! It's like finger nails down a chalkboard. Drives me CRAZY!!!
