Vito is 9 months old tomorrow!

How fast time flies!

These were his photos when he celebrated his 8th month birthday. They're funny!
Chocolate cake?
Sans rival?

Tee hee. He didn't get to taste his cakes, poor thing. But sooner than later, he will be eating cakes! Yep, Vito's all about food now. He eats more than his own Papa! He now eats a full cup of food every meal, followed by milk.

Since he turned 7 months old, he's been eating three meals a day with snacks in between. That's not supposed to happen yet! Dr. Cricket Chen said, "Vito, you're eating like a grown-up!" He's such a greedy little rabbit, eating all the time! But he doesn't get fat. I wonder if it's because he's super active or because, and this is Dr. Chen's theory, he took after his parents who don't get fat no matter what.

Still, some people have commented that maybe it's the breast milk and maybe I should switch him to formula to fatten him up. Ya know, breast milk is the best for babies up to 2 years old. There's nothing better than the best. Besides, I really don't want a fat baby. Healthy active babies are cuter!


  1. happy 9 months old, Vito! what kind of snacks does Vito eat? :)

  2. Congratulations and happy 9th, Vito! And congrats, Frances, for going strong with breastfeeding! :)

    I get that "why isn't he fat" comment, too. My mom said I wasn't a chubby baby though I are a lot, like my Vito. It's genetics, I suppose!

  3. Haha how he looks at those cakes! :)

  4. Yes I agree, I wouldn't want a fat baby too haha..


This is all pretty new to me so please feel free to share your mommy wisdom!
