I can hardly believe how quickly time passes once you have a baby! Subhannallah, it is truly amazing to see a child grow and develop.
We have a doctors appointment on the 11th, so I am not sure how much Ahmad has grown. Though, I must say I am disappointed in a few things. For one, my milk is not as much as it use to be. My OBGYN put me on a different birth control because my body wasn't acting properly with the other kind I was on, and now the one I am on is causing me to loose my milk. Ahmad refuses formula, hence throwing the bottle or sippy cup on the floor. I asked his doctor what we should do, he said if Ahmad absolutely refuses the only choice is cow milk. :( I really wanted him to wait until he was 1 year of age, but even when I put the milk in the bottle he refuses, in a sippy cup he does drink it but spits half or all of it out on himself. So when I make his warm cereal in the morning I put milk in it, and for daytime snacks I give him yogurt. If any of you ladies have ideas or advice, do let me know!
Ahmad has become quite the speed bug when it comes to crawling, he has also become very mobile and is able to stand on his own (while holding on to something with one hand). He is even attempting to let go, in the end falling on his bum. Ahmad is very curious these days, he opens his dresser drawers and pulls all his clothes out or opens the drawer under the oven to play with my baking pans (I think he likes the clanking sounds they make). He is able to eat those baby cereal puffs by himself and drinks from a sippy cup like a pro! Ahmad will also walk when I hold his hands, he finds it very fun, looking up at me with smiles and giggles. For some reason he has became terrified of the baby swing we have at the playground in our apartments, maybe it is just a phase he is going through.
Exactly 9 months old!
"Don't look at me, I didn't do it!"
If baby is happy everyone's happy.
Checking out his new shoes.
Out with Mama. Ahmad absolutely loves water and water fountains.
