9 months

On August 1 our baby turned 9 months.  I refuse to believe it.  And really it makes me sad how fast time goes.  He is approaching a hard age and so I just don’t want him to grow one more minute older!  Sigh…  He is the sweetest boy and his smile is beyond adorable.  He is growing more and more attached to his mama.  He likes to be where ever I am.  It’s cute, but I’m not gonna lie, sometimes I duck and hide in the kitchen or my room just to get a little break.  And he seems to be fine as long as I am not in view.  He still army crawls around.  Well its more like an inch worm.  He gets up on his hands and knees and then falls to his belly while moving forward and pushing off with his feet.  He has an interest in pulling up to things and has done it a few times but is not super consistent.  He is a great eater and prefers to eat all day long!  I really cannot keep him full.  He is weaning off baby food and has taken nicely to real food.  He loves yogurt and graham crackers the best.  He is an expert sleeper at night but his napping is not the greatest.  He takes 2 naps a day but they are at best 1 hour each.  Can’t quite figure out what I’m doing wrong there but he just doesn’t sleep long at all during the day.  He loves to be a part of the action and loves to laugh at his brother and sister.  He loves to pull out the DVD boxes and empty them out.  He is starting to really love story time at night and loves to turn the pages.  He knows the sign for please, loves to play “Bonk” (headbutt) with Daddy, can wave “bye-bye” when he wants to and occasionally will attempt clapping.  I just love him so much!

  1. Good, he can stay little!! My baby is getting way too big, and acting so big…it’s killing me. She just learned stairs! I can’t wait to squeeze this guy and get some smiles out of him. The separation anxiety phase really is tough.
