Mr Milestones

So, Zach is now officially pulling up. Lots. He's also trying to get up stairs and into everything in sight (and not so in sight - at least to us! Reminds me, I have to clean under the fridge....)

His weigh in yesterday was 7.12 kg (so 15.7 lbs) and he's now 69 cm (or just over 27"). Which means he's outgrowing his infant car seat. I was hoping he'd be in that until he was a year old so we wouldn't have to deal with the huge car seat that will need to be rear-facing (therefore using up a lot of space in the back and making it nearly impossible to sit in the seat in front of it....). He is gaining weight, but not at the rate he "should" be. (Alex did the same thing at this age, too). We're trying some different tactics for food, changing his feeding patterns to get him back on the right track. I'm not worried about it. He's still gaining height (is that you say it?) at the "right" rate, so it's not a crisis situation or anything. One thing that was suggested by the doctor was to stop the nighttime feedings (we'll see!!).

(We're back to our old doctor again. We just like her so much better! The drives a pain, but it will probably be worth it in the long run.....)

Zachary has also started eating some finger foods, such as Cheerios and Special K. We're going to try ground beef and see how he likes that, too....

Here are some pics of Mr. Standy-Up.
