Masons 9 month check up

So last week we had a well baby check up. Mason got measured and weighed no shots this time around. His pediatrician and I talked about some of my concerns and some questions I had. So Mason weighed in at 18 lbs and is in the 35% for a 9 month old. His doctor did not check to see what he was for a 7 month since last time he was already at 98% for his gestational age. He said Mason will probably stay in the 35% since this is where he was for his 6 month appointment. He asked me if Mason was sleeping thru the night, which he is not, and gave me his opinion on what I should do. Well for those that know me I dont do the CIO method and thats what his doctor suggested. I just listed to him and would occasionally nod. This was basically our doctors appointment. Im very excited to see what Mason will be doing in the next couple of weeks. Now that he is crawling he is all over the place. Since his birthday is in three months I have already started thinking about it. We will be traveling to Rome to celebrate with family and friends there. Im very excited for my little man to turn one.

Valentines Day

Raul and I had a great Vday. We celebrated it on the 13th and we went to dinner @ Buzz's Steak house with other couples from our church. It was lots of fun we played some games and Raul and I won the kissing one. I had to put lip stick on and kiss Rauls face. I laughed so hard and I guess you can say I finally got to put make up on Raul. After that we went ice-skating. We have been anting to try it out for a long time and im happy we finally got to do it. Raul was funny ice skating the first time his skate touched the ice he was like "no im not doing this" and started to get out but I told him he had to. We had so much fun doing that. For me it was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be and Raul did a great job! Our friend Kristin came to the house to baby sit Mason and it was really nice that Raul and I where able to have a "date" just the two of us. On Saturday I had to work and when Raul came to pick me up he had bought me roses, a card from him and Mason and an ipod. Raul was very sweet and this was the best Valentines we have ever had... actually its probably the only one we have been together so it was extra special.

Its been 9 months!

Can you believe its been nine months since Mason came into this world! Time is just going by to quickly. So Mason has been sitting by himself since mid November and it worked out great because he was able to sit and open his Christmas presents. We started solids at about 7 months and have not had ay problems with what we have tried. I decided to make my own baby food and it has been pretty easy. So far Mason has had avocados, mangos, papaya, apples, bananas, pears, peaches, pumpkin, squash, zucchini, carrots, peas, green beans, and sweet potatoes. Recently he started eating some cheerio as a snack and some mum mums. We dont have any teeth yet so all of his food is still pureed. From Rauls family history im not expecting any teeth till around 1. We are still BF and still loving it. Sometimes i think BF is so much easier than giving him food. I hope to continue BF for at least another year or so. If yall have read our blog yall know that Mason hates tummy time. Well good news in the last 2 weeks or so that has changed. He can now go from a sitting position to his belly with out lading face first! lol He wiggles him self around from one spot to the next and seems to be really enjoying this new sense of freedom. He can also get up on his knees and rock himself but gets back on his belly to move around. It has been such a joy to watch him grow. We dont have ay words yet but he does cry maaaa maaaa so im taking that he said mama 1st...lol

We go to the doctor on the 19th so ill let yall know how much he weighed
