Nathaniel Is Nine Months Old!!

Not only did Tyler turn four on Sunday but Nathaniel turned nine months old! Wow!! He had his nine month well child check yesterday and here's the latest...
13 pounds, 8 ounces
25 inches long
He has sure grown from the tiny boy he was at birth. He is doing really, really well. He is nine months according to the calendar but size wise and developmentally he is at about a four month level. He is making great strides and is babbling, smiling all the time, giggling once in awhile, trying to roll over, using his hands to grab and reach for toys, bringing toys to his mouth, and he has given up a binky due to a preference for his hands and fingers. He also got the all clear yesterday to begin some baby cereal and bananas. He is drinking six ounces at a time and has been sleeping through the night for quite awhile. He recently moved into 3-6 month clothes and a size two diaper.
There are some concerns about his hearing and he has a hearing evaluation next Wednesday. We're hoping for the best but we are also prepared for the worst.
Nate is a super easy baby and so sweet and loving. He adores his brother and sister and I must say, he is a bit of a Momma's boy and I LOVE it. He is such a wonderful baby and we are so blessed to have him in our family!!

You are such a good mom to keep us all informed of the goings-on at the Gardner house, especially when you have so many demands on your time.
Just because we don't write, doesn't mean we don't love you, and we love getting your updates. Thanks.

Love, Trish and co.

Happy Birthday, Tyler!! Nate and Myia are just about the same size (Myia's 2 inches longer) and only 1 month apart. I guess I never figured that out before. Your kids are beautiful!!!
Love,
Lisa
