Ephraim at 9 months

Another month has gone by already!? My job seems to have gotten a bit harder this month. Ephraim is into EVERYTHING, and he will be from now until forever, I’m sure (like his brother). :) He is continually crawling towards shoes, the dog’s dishes and bones, Nolan’s potty, garbage cans. . . all that good stuff! He can cruise along furniture, climb up stairs, and pull books off of the shelves. And he is just as in love with his Mommy as ever. I know I say that every month, but the little guy still thinks we should be attached at the hip :) I would do anything for this blue-eyed heartbreaker!

9 Month Stats

Weight: 19 lbs, 13 ounces

Length: Around 28 inches

Eating: We have short nursing sessions every 3 hours during the day (and at night too, but we’re working on that). He is crazy about mashed bananas and raspberries. We do a lot of oatmeal and fruits, and he doesn’t like his veggies so much. He loves eating puffs and pumpkin teething biscuits!

Bedtime: He falls asleep around 9, and wakes up sometime between 12-2, and again between 4-6. We’re in the middle of sleep training, so hopefully in the next week, we’ll get it down to just once a night.

Awake: He’s been getting up somewhere around 8:30.

Naps: Naps are pretty short, but he’s taking three a day. He still falls asleep really easily in the car.

Diapers: Size 3

Clothes: 9 months, probably moving up to 12 shortly

Latest Tricks:

CRUISING—He just started walking along furniture. I’ve also seen him walk while pushing a toy across the floor!

CLIMBING STAIRS—So yesterday, I went upstairs to get something, and Steve found the baby halfway up the stairs following me! He has never attempted one stair before, so it was pretty shocking to see that he knew how to do that! Installing more baby gates, asap!

He started waving the other day, and it’s the cutest thing ever.

Favorites: All toys, remotes, shoes, pens—anything he can put in his mouth, and anything that he can pull up and stand next to. :) He loves bathtime and splashing in the water!


I wish ya’ll could see him (and hold him) in person! He is just so inherently sweet :)

I’m not sure I can remember this tiny baby anymore! :)


  1. Happy 9 months to that sweet, sweet baby!!

  2. Wow I can't believe how big he has gotten compared to his newborn picture! What a sweetie!
