Baby R’s 9 Month Update | Northern Virginia Milestone Baby Photos

posted on:

Apr 15, 2021

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you probably already know that Baby R turned 9 months last week. I feel like a broken record whenever I say that he grows up too fast. But I really mean every word. I mean, can you blame me? He’s our last baby so I want him to stay a baby forever.

On Baby R’s 6 month update, I shared what we are grateful for. And while we’re still incredibly grateful to have him as part of our family, here are the highlights of the last 3 months with Baby R:

  • He learned how to army crawl because of our iPad. He was reaching for it and wanted to play with it so he pushed himself to get it; and he succeeded. I feel like as soon as he started crawling, he just learned how to do other things right away.
  • He can now sit independently.
  • He has been pulling himself up on mostly everything.
  • On the day he turned 9 months, he learned how to feed himself and mastered it right on that day.
  • He loves our cellphone and iPad. If we want him motivated to crawl, we use either and without fail, he will crawl as fast as he can.
  • He loves to eat. He loved mostly everything we have given him. At this point, he has eaten everything we’ve been eating.
  • So far, he didn’t like avocados and Spaghetti.
  • Our breastfeeding journey has been rocky. Recently, my very little milk supply dropped to the point that there’s not any barely left. I wasn’t sure if it was because of the huge drop in my calorie consumption or because he hasn’t been nursing properly (because he wants to play with his older siblings); or maybe both. So for over a week, I’ve been pumping as frequent as I can to get my milk back and so far my supply has been recovering.
  • He’s still a very happy baby who doesn’t like to be held anymore because he likes to explore in our home as much as possible.

Here are some photos from his mini milestone photo shoot during Easter and by the time he could sit.
