9/10 Month Update

I know.. I know... Luca is now 10 months old, and this picture above says 9 months. Well life has been crazy busy, and I am now just getting around to doing an update. Only one more update after this one, which is his one year update! How in the world is he already almost ONE? I can't believe it. He is just growing way too fast. 

Update time: Luca weighs 19 lbs and is 28 inches long. He was 18 lbs at his 9 month check up, but now being a month later has gained another pound. He is starting to catch up in height, and is no longer in the 10% for height or weight for that matter. Wahoo! I believe he is in the 25% for both. He's perfect in every way.. not too chunky.. not too little.. Just perfect! His thighs are still chunky though hehe! Luca is now in size 4 diapers, and we are currently loving Parasol diapers. For clothing sizes, he is wearing size 12 months, 6-12 months, and 9-12 months. Now, some zip up pjs are super snug on him though, so we mainly stick to him wearing a shift and pant pj set. He prefers them anyway, since he hates getting dressed or changed. 

Luca is now crawling and pulling himself up to stand.. Like what? So crazy. He crawls all over the place and rarely sits still. He has five teeth now. and loves to eat. He didn't officially start until about two weeks ago. So it took him a little longer than I thought to start crawling, but once he figured it out... he doesn't stop haha! 

We actually had some difficulty with him going to sleep after he started crawling because he just wanted to stay playing. Now he is sleeping back to normal, and just a few times fighting sleep. But that is better than every night like it was for a week. 

Luca is still adventurous as ever, well he doesn't really have a choice. He goes where mama goes. In the past couple of months he has traveled to West Virginia, Charleston SC, and enrolled in music class for a couple months. 

While in Charleston, Luca decided to dig his teeth into mama causing sores too the point where I just couldn't handle breastfeeding anymore. I was starting to not look forward to every feeding. So I made the decision to exclusively pump, and then after a month of EP switching to formula. Thankfully the transition went relatively smoothly. Let me know if y'all want me to do a blog post about transitioning from breastfeeding to formula. I made it 9 months exclusively breastfeeding, even though my goal was a year, I am happy I made it to 9 months. Mama is happy now, baby is healthy and happy, and that's all that matters right? If curious, we give Luca Happy Baby Formula stage 2. 

He's seriously getting so big. He is now holding his bottle by himself, crawling, and pulling up on things to stand up. Not only that he is also knows how to pull himself onto his kid couch in his play room. Too big Too big! He also started to wave also. 

We also just enrolled him in baby gymnastics, and will start this week. I am so excited to see him learn, and play with everyone. I think he will love it since he is so active now. 

Luca Loves 

1. Eating. He loves eating table food. Prefers that over baby food any day. His favorite food right now is chicken, broccoli, mash potatoes, pancakes, eggs, and ground turkey. 

2. Being pushed in his stroller. 

3. Playing in the bath

4. Smiling. We love when he does his "cute boy smile"

5. Saying mama. (his first word)

6. Still loving his doggies. Especially Diesel. He gets so happy and excited when he sees them

7. Love his bouncer still, and is starting to really love his walker. 

Luca's daddy/my husband also came home from deployment a couple days after he turned 9 months old! He was so happy to see him. 

Here are so more cute pictures of my sweet boy! That''s all for now for an update.
