Nine Months



Nine months. Nine months? Has it really been nine months? You have now been in this world as long as you were growing in my belly. Why does the time go by so fast? You change every. single. day! Today was your nine month check-up with Dr. B. He is such a wonderful doctor & really seems to be smitten by you. You did great today and only had to have one shot – a flu shot. You kept giggling at the nurse and she had so much fun playing with you. You are going to be, well already are, very outgoing. You smile and babble to every passerby. You put a smile on everyones face. You bring so much joy to the lives around you. Even your older sister has been bitten by the baby bug. Yeah, sometimes she gets a little jealous of all the attention you get, but it doesn’t last long. She loves to play with you and hold you and try to help you walk. She has been a great helper. She refuses to change diapers though…can’t say I blame her. If I had a choice I wouldn’t change stinky diapers either. You have been a great baby so far. You started sleeping through the night around month 3 and have ever since except for a few teething nights. You have two teeth and two more cutting through. You love to put everything in your mouth. You will find the teeny tiniest little bitty piece of something on any given surface and try your best to eat it before I can get it away from you. This has caused me much frustration and hilarity. You can say: baba, dada, mama, nana, papa, byebye & sometimes hiiiiiiiii! You are a talker but only when you want to be. You like to dance to catchy tunes on Noggin! I love when you do this, it is too cute. You love to eat cheerios and any kind of fruit I will give you. We are being very cautious with table foods and so you haven’t had much variety in that category, but we’re working on it. You do have a very healthy appetite and love to eat your sweet potatoes and chicken dinner. You are still trying to get used to your sippy cup. But, you do love to throw it around! You have the most mesmerizing blue eyes. I could look into those eyes forever. You are such a beautiful little soul and we all love you very much. We thank God for sending you to us to love and protect and raise. Technically you will be 10 months old in four days, but we seem to be a month behind at the doctors office and so I’m writing about your nine months today because it is hard for me to believe that this nine months has gone by so quickly! I love you little man forever and always!
