Happy 9 Months!

Wow! On Friday, you turned NINE MONTHS OLD!!!!! 

This age is so much fun. It's a lot of work
Keeping an eye on everything you do but I love seeing you figure new this out and explore your little world. 

We have travelled quite a lot this month. We have gone to Florida, charleston, and the Lakehouse. The car rides have definitely gotten harder, but leaving during nap time and a little Mickeys Clubhouse go a long way!

You have learned to crawl on all fours. No more scooting around! It's really hard to catch you once you get started!

You learned to pull up on everything. And I mean everything!! You can also take steps while holding our hands. It's crazy to think you will be walking in no time! I feel like you are still a teeny tiny baby! But I guess I will always feel that way! 

You can climb up stairs and up up the ledge in the playroom. Which gives mommy a mild heart attack when you turn trying to come back down!
You can say "MA MA" and you say it over and over and over!!! Anytime you are sad or want something you say MAAAA MAAA!!!!!! 

You are in size 9 month clothes and size 3 diapers still. I'm not sure how much you weigh, we are going to the doctor on Thursday so we will find out then!

You just have the two bottom teeth. One came last month and the other popped up in Florida. The first one was pretty traumatic but the second didn't seem so bad. You have started drooling and sticking your tongue out more so I think the top ones are starting..... 
Being on vacation so often this month kind of messed up your sleeping. You did not sleep through the night at all when we were out of town but at home you have a few nights. We are slowly getting you back on track. It's a little but harder now that you stand up as soon as you wake up!! 

You are still eating the same foods as last month, just larger portions. A whole new list of things you can eat begins now at nine months. So get ready!! 

You are beginning to experience some separation anxiety from us. Anytime we leave the room you freak out! Or if someone you don't know comes up to you, you get shy and hold on tight to us. The other day I was walking you in your trike and our neighbor came up and said hello to you and you started crying and saying ma ma!! I want to try and start putting you in the nursery at church but it makes me so nervous that you will get upset! 

We have had such a fun month of travelling and watching you grow. I feel like you have learned so much this month and I can't wait to see what you learn next month. We love you with all of our hearts and are so proud of you. You are such a gift to your daddy and I.
