Patrick is out of town... so we've been on our own for 4 days!
Trevor had his 9 months appointment on Wednesday... 22 lbs. 14.5 ozs (75-90%) and 29.5 ins. (90%). He's an excellent sleeper--usually asleep by 7:30 and up at 7:30 with two naps of varying lengths during the day. He's doing great!
Doctor lady asked if he eats table food.... and um, he'd eat the table if we let him. He typically eats 6-10 ounces of formula at breakfast / lunch / dinner... along with about as much food as Lauren consumes. This morning he topped off a 7.5 ounce bottle with an entire pancake, 3 strawberries and 1/4 banana. Lauren ate 2 pancakes, 2 strawberries, and probably about 4 ounces of milk. At lunch, he ate an entire hotdog, a piece of cheese, part of a piece of bread, 8 grapes, and eventually finished an 8 ounce bottle (took it with us on an outing, and he finished it within the hour). Lauren ate a hotdog, gave Trevor her cheese, 5 ounces of juice, a pretzel rod, and some grapes. It's fascinating.... she's 48 lbs. and 44 inches and pretty active. I don't know where it all goes... little dude's body isn't that big!
Friday we went to the zoo with Francie, Noah, Lucy and their neighbor Avery. Noah and Lauren are exactly the same age, born same day. Lucy is a few months older the Trevor. Lauren has recently begun telling all that she's going to marry Noah.... however Noah introduced Avery as his "girlfriend"... so we'll see.This girl LOVES the carousel.
Today we went to the Conservatory with Grandma... no pictures though. Sorry. Afterward Trevor enjoyed helping me make cookies... he really enjoyed the clean-up stage. I wasn't sure about the raw egg cookie batter thing... but, whatever. Like I said, he eats EVERYTHING. He licked that beater like a pro!
We're having fun... but can't wait for Patrick to come home tomorrow. We miss him.
