I can't believe 9 months has already passed. Nine months in - nine months out, isn't that how it goes?
You are truly such a happy baby - you are always smiling and laughing. Even in the mornings when I go to get you out of your crib you are usually in there playing and giggling.
You are slowly starting to transition out of baby mode. It is so exciting and depressing to see. You are no longer content staying still and you must get into everything and anything you can possibly get your hands on. You have mastered getting around the house using ever resource at your disposal. If you can't crawl there - you'll roll. If neither of those works you will still find a way to get to where you want and when you want.
You are still babbling like crazy although it is still nothing coherent. You have learned to smack your lips together when you want more food which is adorable and let us just say that you smack your lips a lot.
You still love to eat. There isn't a food that you've tried that you haven't loved. We've started to make your food more consistent adding in rice and pasta while leaving some bigger chunks. We have also started you on finger foods, although you love to throw it over the high chair more than eat it. You definitely love to see it hit the ground and you burst out into fits of giggles. I was actually kind of hoping we would skip this phase all together.
You still have no teeth. I'm honestly starting to get a little worried. While I love your gummy smile I'm wondering why they haven't started coming yet. We have taken away your pacifier in hopes of stimulating some teeth - we'll have to wait and see.
You are still nursing in the mornings and at night. I am really hoping that this will be the last month for us. You are no longer as distracted - which is good - but I think the time has come.
This month it took a while for you to adjust back to daycare. You weren't your usual happy self. I completely understand though, after a month off it's tough to try and get back into a routine. You seem to be adjusting better which is great for all of us.
You love to be on your feet and cruising along. If it isn't holding on to your daddy's fingers it is in your walker - and you are going full speed.
You are learning to do so many things and it is so amazing to watch you develop. I'm hoping we have another great month!
