9 Months!

This is the month you started crawling for real! And boy have you been on the move! You also started the month by learning to sit yourself up from a belly down position. Another skill? going up the stairs! For us that means that keeping you safe has become quite the challenge. In one way you are less frustrated because you can get around, on the other hand, the standing obsession has reached new heights and you are already thinking ahead to cruising.

In the food department we've also had great leaps as we've finally moved to two meals a day! Usually fruit and/or puffs for "lunch" and then some of whatever we're having for dinner. Your spoon skills are getting quite good and you are always excited for wintry soups. You have 3 teeth and a 4th on the way, so we let you try some meat and you loved it (and did an excellent job chewing it to death)!


You are very much a creature of habit and have been loving our daily routine. You are particularly happy to go out of the house and you are anxious to leave the house in the morning on our daily walks! Even though daytime hours are short between our walk, meal times and two naps, you love exploring around the house and especially love reading books together.

Quite possibly the most rewarding development for us to hear is your new screech. It is one of delight and joy and we love hearing it when you get up in the morning, or when you wake up your brother from his nap and are just too excited to tackle him in bed. We love seeing you grow and change and can't wait for what's to come!
