He's still small for his age but neither of us are big, so wouldn't really expect him to be although born weighing 8lb 8oz so maybe you'd expect him to be?!
Today he weighs 18lb's and on the second row up on his weight chart, his head is little apparently, i always thought it was big! LOL He has 2 cherries(testicles), all joints and hips are OK! So all in all a healthy boy! YAY!
WARNING THE REST IS ABOUT POO!
Not sure about her advice about his poo though, i asked if its normal for him to always do runny poos, she said it was fine! I have cut all brown bread from his diet and even cut his beloved raisins wheat's to see if we could firm it up, so far nope! The only result is that we now only have one poo per day and that he still trumps as much, his poo still stinks as much and its equally as runny! He currently drinks 21oz of milk per day. What do you think?? Should i book to see doc??

I gave him them to play with after his meal, don't think he actually ate anything from them. Grandma H has made us quiche for dinner, well his portion was about the size of a small adult and it went down a treat. Needed a little help as it was so crumbly, i wouldn't normally but he was getting very frustrated!

He's suddenly no longer a little baby who needs help with everything, turning into little Mr Independent! He wont even let me put his dummy in sometimes, he wants to hold it himself then put it in - very cute tho!

For tea Gnocchi (Italian potato dumplings) & Cheese sauce, he ate a stupid amount, oh and spread it in his hair and anywhere else his little paw landed (cheese sauce not fun to remove especially as i put half a block of cheese in!) Need to get more veg in his diet again - i do let it slip!
Clocks went forward last night by a hour so it'll be lighter at nights now, had about 4text messages reminding me this morning! Its not like last time they went back and i forgot! I got up early to go to the gym for 8am turns out i was actually there at 7am and it was a Sunday morning The Marriott Hotel wasn't even alive at that time never mind the gym!
Been that nice out today, in fact very sunny. Our lawns have been cut today, the lawn mower made Billy cry. He was very happy to stand on the window ledge and watch from inside though, oh and blow his cheeks up on my window and squash his nose on it! Lets hope he doesn't do that at Grandma H's she'd be gutted, her house is spotless!

This week he's off commando style he's chase us between rooms, this week we've found him during the night in his cot the complete opposite direction to where we put him to sleep and laid against the bottom of the cot, this week he's decided he no longer needs a 11am bottle so its now 7x8-7oz bottles per day, this week he's stirred once per night most nights, this week we've found him sat up in his cot and standing and just playing when he wakes!
I'm in on own tonight gonna ruin diet having dirty takeaway and a few glasses, then gonna firmly root my bum to the sette to watch the back log on sky plus of ER and Desperate house wives! Had a shit day at work, think one of the boys has it in for me, he's deliberately defying me. Think he's the kind to be making complaints and raising grievances, so i''m having to do stuff by the book which isn't my style and it tiring!

He's had busy day. Off to play world today, where he showed off his commando crawl, in fact he's very quick now - gonna have to watch him! We have solid wood floors through our house so its very easy for him to slide along. His Daddy wants to attach a duster to him!
12 Raisin wheat's again - greedy! Well we'd not planned lunch out but my friend ordered her little boy a toasted tea cake which he flatly refused, so Billy ate that, then her little boy asked for cheese and ham sandwich, which when it arrived he also refused so Billy ate most of that too and you've seen tea! Big advantage this BLW lark when your out, plus very proud that Mum's were saying WOW he's only 9months old and hes eating like that - If only they knew how long its take to get him eating!

At work yesterday, we were just chatting as it was very quite. Some how we came to the subject of BFing. One of the girls from work same age as me, married, thinking of starting a family asked me about been a Mum. So during the chat we were having i mentioned i had bf and that I'd given up as i was due to return to work. Her face! She looked disgusted, so i asked what the face was for? she said she thought bfing was disgusting, but then she said well done to me as she could never do it! I know, i know its her choice but i had to stop my self going on a huge rant! Its not even i think everyone should BF! Got to remember she works for me. Kind of upset me not sure why??
I can remember at 4months people saying god are you still bfing?? Is it that strange? ITS WHAT NATURE INTENDED! Don't get me wrong, I am not criticising Mums who choose to FF - you do whats best for you.
Just a little irritated, i've had to tone this post down or it'd have seemed like i was shouting!

I commented on http://cakerwakers.blogspot.com/ post entitled - It's the end of the world as we know it, a few days ago, saying we'd had no real bad weather in UK. Well since then we'd had every form of weather going, Snow, rain, sleet, sun.... a very strange year!

Loads of saliva today though - teeth?? I know i know i say that often! One day i will be right.
A day with his Daddy, whilst Mummy was working. Off they went visiting ( Mothers Day tomorrow) and then to the pub to watch the football, when i say pub they were in the family room where its no smoking and most of his friend children were there. Daddy was very proud as our boy was the only one who didn't cry and was happy! I was asked if all babies are as happy like ours and i replied with i don't know but I'd like to think hes the happiest around! Daddy's team lost 3-0! (Looking forward to later this year when every pub becomes No Smoking)
Need to sort this work thing out - I'm meant to be doing 24hours to settle back in then go to
30hours per week and this week i have done 36hours. My boss doesn't listen, think I've been too honest. I can work any time as i do have child care (Mum in law) but its my choice to work part time as i want to see my baby grow up! He's not got children so don't think he understands, plus he'd struggle with out me at the mo as he's useless!

He had raisin wheat's for breakfast and ate 10 of them, i decided that he couldn't have anymore - very greedy!
I decided to go get him weighed this morning as we were ready to go out so early and I'd found 6 little flat spots on his legs and back so also wanted them checking out. Off we went to see health visitor, he weighs 17lb 9oz today so putting weight back on. Not enough for that forward facing car seat i am so eagerly awaiting! Any the spots, the HV thinks chicken pox! YUCK YUCK YUCK! They are flat at mo and she says if they start to rise and fill up they CP and the reason he was up last night may have been he had a temp?! (Know it all - OH sorry i mean my Mother is on her way round for a look, to give her diagnosis!) I don't think its cp or should i say i hope not!
One final thing - poo been my favourite subject at the moment - OK most of the time! He filled his nappy at 7am this morning and it leaked on our bed!! Wasnt happy! Gonna cut out brown bread as it could be the cause of all the runny poo, goes against the grain but its gonna be white from now on - reading post on Baby Centre and apparently babies bodies cant cope with the dense amount of fibre and it fills them for longer so they don't eat as much!
Wednesday, 14 March 2007
He's not eaten much today and not had a decent sleep either, not sure he's feeling great today. Could it be teeth?? Doubt it how many times have a posted he might be teething??!!
Work again tomorrow by the end of the week I'll have done 4 full days - not happy!
Tuesday, 13 March 2007
This is not unusual to have to change his full outfit due to him covering it in S**T - just later in the day than normal. NEED different nappies i think or a big cork!

Today we've been to toddler group with his little mates. He's kinda in between, baby group is now too little for him and toddler too big, he showed off his skills in his baby walker and it gave me great pride that he was the only one that can go forwards (Baby Olympics starting)
I go from one extreme to the other about his eating, I'm now worried he is eating too much. He eats most meals offered and between 28-32oz of milk per day, i thought once that they started eating properly that they dropped their bottles off??
Oh and hes eaten melon today!
Wednesday, 7 March 2007
Spag bol for tea with Daddy as Mummy was at work until 930pm, he looks like the enjoyed it! Think spag bol gives him wind, you could hear him trumping down stairs on his monitor! Such a polite boy! Of course Daddy thought it was hilarious, don't think he found it funny when he woke up at 1030pm to fill his nappy! Been trying to get him eating fruit and not had much luck, offered him all sorts - pears, kiwi, grapes, prunes, apples, raisins and asda exsp nectarines that cast a fortune! Only thing he ate was pear and raisins. Made a pancake and hid some fruit in it seem to be a hit, i think persistence is the key and making sure they are very ripe!
Finally i can go back to monthly contact lenses now i have stopped breast feeding, bf made my eyes dry so was unable to wear them, I got new ones one order THANK GOD!

Well he's gone from been ill to been on a Marathon eaterthon. He's eaten everything offered and drinking milk like hes never really before. I've listed this mainly for my reference.
7am 6oz milk
3pm 6oz bottle
7pm 6oz milk
11pm 5oz milk
Approx 23oz milk per day
7am 8oz milk
11am 6-8oz milk
3pm 8oz bottle
7pm 6-8oz milk
Approx 28oz-32oz milk per day
From the new routine that i wished i'd have changed him to months ago he sleeps though and no dream feed - so there was a good thing come out of the horrible bug he had!
Friday was a day with Grandma H and Saturday mostly with Daddy, when Daddy went to watch his beloved Sheffield Utd football team he went to Grandma H's. Daddy foolishly let him sleep for 2h30m in the morning so bottles we a little out of sink, suppose I'm gonna have to get used to people not sticking to my strict routine (I know i know I'm very anal and only like things doing as i say - i always write a list and this time i didn't!) Until toady I've not really missed him but after 2 days away from him and a quieter day at work, I'm glad I'm home tomorrow!
I know i go on over kill sometimes with the photos but i can help myself!

He's lost some weight but no real surprise there with how ill he was. Gonna have to bulk him back up, he's eating better but not a he used to. (that forward facing car seat seems so far away 20lb's min)
Last night he had big selection of veg and some salmon for tea, i did make a fatal mistake of giving him corn on the cob early in his meal which meant he wasn't interested in any thing other than that. He at loads of it and his nappy this morning proved it. (very funny watching at 8month old tucking in to corn tho)
I feel like i give him the same meals over and over again, but i do think that I've become reliant on what you know he likes.
