Here's my chubbie cutie! Patrick is such a chilled back baby and takes the love and slaps from Markus in good temper. He reaches and takes toys and books from Patrick, which doesn't help fraternal realtions! He laughs and chuckles, which sets Markus off. He likes it if you nibble his fingers or blow on his fingers. In the last few weeks he has finally rolled from front to back, but has still not rolled back to front. But as Dr says, he is so heavy, probably doesn't want to roll! At his 9 month hceck up (16th April) he was between 75-90% for weight, 50% for head and between 25-50% for height. Alan still calls him a barrel chested dwarf.
He sits and claps his hands, raises his arms in the air, bangs his toys together. His favourite toys is the hairbrush! His top teeth starting coming down beginning of April (8.5 months) and are now pretty much down - has four teeth. He likes standing up with support and is beginning to try crawling. He gets on all fours and starts to rock, then falls flat on his front.
Last couple of weeks has been waking to breastfeed at 2/3am and 5/6am each night, which is taking its toll on me. Eating solids still going well, good variety of foods, developing his fine pincer grip to get stuff in his mouth. Will try and eat anything.
