Brandon was 9 months old yesterday. As of Thursday he weighed 16 pounds, 4 ounces and was 26 inches long. He can roll from his front to back and back to front. He can now sit for several minutes. I think he can probably sit longer but after sitting for a few minutes he sometimes decides he has sat long enough and wants to be in a different position. He laughs often and smiles all of the time. Overall he is a very happy baby. He has recently started going through mommy attachment. He eats two solid meals a day...barley and a stage 1 fruit or vegetable and drinks anywhere from 26-31 ounces of formula a day. He is still on neosure formula but when he finishes the bottles of formula that we already have we are going to try to switch him to regular similac and see if he likes it. We tried to switch him off of the neosure in December and he did not like the formula we switched him to. We had switched him to Carnation Good Start since one of the neonatologists recommended it. I guess he just didn't like the taste. He is wearing 6-9 month, 9 month, and 6-12 month clothes depending on the brand. It is amazing how far he has come so far. I look forward to seeing him continue to develop into the wonderful baby that he is.
My name is Karen and I have been married to my husband Stu for a little over 9 years. I was pregnant with twins and lost our baby girl at 20 1/2 weeks after I had premature rupture of membranes. I stayed pregnant with the other baby and our first child, Brandon Tyler, was born on July 5, 2008 at 26 weeks and 1 day. Our second child, Wesley Matthew, was born full term on June 29, 2011. This blog is documenting our children.
