He's nine months old!

My baby is nine months old today! He's all healthy now and as busy as can be.
Sometimes he seems so grown up to me, almost like a little boy.
And, at other times he still seems so little.
One thing is for sure, it's getting hard to keep up with him! He's pulling up and starting to cruise along everything.
He's even big enough to steal toys instead of just being the one from whom toys are stolen.
And, he's highly adept at finding remotes, cordless phones, and cell phones to chew on. What is it with babies and remote controls?
Happy nine months, baby boy! You are such a joy!

He is so so adorable. Thank you for sharing. I feel the same way about Gregory - even if he is a little big older. And I love the picturs of Gustin in the window

Happy nine months Gustin! What a cutie. Glad to hear he is no longer sick.

Our boys were born one day apart and they do sound similar! Asher even has that same striped onsie, only in long sleeves.

My due date was May 12, but I was induced one day early to make sure I was able to receive the full antibiotics for group B strep. My first son (second child) got group B strep and a bone infection when he was 5 weeks old. He was hospitalized for 5 days (had a couple surgeries and a lot of other stuff) and had to wear a pic line IV for six weeks (I learned very quickly how to be a nurse). Anyway his labor and delivery went so fast that I didn't have enough time to receive all of the antibiotics so we didn't want to chance it with Asher. He passed that, but then we learned at 2 to 3 weeks that he was born with craniosynistosis (the bones in his head were fused) so he had major surgery at 4 1/2 months to remove the fused bone and was in the hospital for 5 days. I thank God for the gifts of my boys and for the lessons they and He have taught me. I am a stonger and better person because of it.

Just thought I would share.

He is completely beautiful!

Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for sharing your story! You and your children certainly have been through a lot. I was group B strep positive as well for my last two pregnancies. My water broke both times before I could be induced but, thankfully, both times I didn't actually go into labor so I was able to get antibiotics before I finally was induced.

So, are both your boys completely healthy now, or do they have any lingering effects from their conditions when they were infants? What are the ages of all your children?

Jody said...

Both my boys are completely fine. Your typical little boys. Thanks for asking.

I have three children. Zoe will be 5 next Sunday, Ethan will be 3 next Friday and Asher was 9 months on Monday.
