40 weeks

We were looking everywhere for a rubber duck but couldn't find a classic one in any stores. Then when we had the interview with "Growing Up in NZ" they gave him one as a gift. He loves it too.

Bathing him in the kitchen is now a thing of the of tonight. We have migrated to the bathroom, finally. He just splashes around way too much and was getting water all over the kitchen floor. Now he can slap the water to his heart's content.

OK, so Kien has now spent more time in the world than inside my womb. I guess I can stop counting his age in weeks now.

He has sprouted another tooth already! The tip is showing under his bottom left gum. He has been pretty cranky this last week so good thing something has appeared. What is interesting though is that he is grumpy until I drop him off at daycare, and as soon as we arrive he is sweet and smiley. What is with that? I don't take it personally. I'm glad it's not the opposite reaction though as that would make me feel horrible leaving him.

Plunket paid us a visit on Tuesday for the 9 month checkup. Kien has lost some weight due to being sick - he is only 7.1kg. So he has dropped off the world health organisation's third percentile. He is however still a tall little boy - 73.5cm, which places him around the 75th percentile. I've been trying to feed him as much as he can consume. He isn't doing too badly with his solids. I've been cooking up a storm and have a freezer full of pureed food adventures. Lets see how long it will take for him to finish everything.
