I’m about a week late again, but I wanted to get Micah’s official measurements from the doctor and his appointment wasn’t until yesterday. I had to do a double take at the scale (much like when he was born) because he weighed in at 20 lbs, which is the size of an average 10 month old. Everything checked out well and he got up to date on his vaccines, so we are all set for another 3 months!
I took his pictures today and he covers most of his banner. He is 27.5″ long, which is near the 80th percentile. He has outgrown all of his 9 month clothes and I’m looking at unpacking some of the 18 month clothes soon. He probably won’t fit in the holiday clothes Harrison wore his first year, but he might fit into the clothes Harrison wore the 2nd year!
Micah has started using his hands for fine motor skills, but his favorite thing right now is pinching. Ouch! He especially likes grabbing our faces and cheeks. I don’t think he understands quite how much it hurts when he pinches the back of our arms so he’s lucky he’s cute.
Micah has started eating solids and has tried about 10 foods so far. He loves sweet potato. He has also tried baby oatmeal, avocado, broccoli, zucchini, green beans, pumpkin, squash, and scrambled eggs. We are doing baby led weaning again and it has worked great for our family. Soon we will introduce some fruits and some meat.
Micah is on the move! He has started to army crawl short distances and rolls if he wants to get somewhere fast. It’s only a matter of time before his is crawling, because he has started to get on his hands and knees.
On another note, Micah spent his first night away from home when Ryan and I took a trip to San Francisco. Harrison and Micah did great while we were gone. In fact, if we could get them to sleep that well at home we would be all set. They adjusted to being back home pretty quick and things are back to normal around here. We appreciated the vacation, even though it was a work trip for Ryan.
Celebrating the holidays with little ones is my favorite. With Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas coming up I am looking forward to making new memories. This is my favorite time of the year! Make sure you check out our Fall Photo Shoot if you haven’t already and check back soon for more updates!
