Woah. Nine months. This past month was the MONTH OF PERSONALITY. You’ve been crawling and pulling up and getting into everything. You’re getting stronger every day and I already see you transferring from one piece of furniture to the next, standing free for a second, and being quite pleased with yourself. You’ve also learned how to clap (mama was excited to teach you that one!) and although no baby signs yet, you study me with intensity whenever I motion.
You also think it’s heeelarious to feed the dogs from your high chair. A quick ‘leave it!’ will get the dogs to back away and from you? A smile and clap.
You think doors are really amazing, and my next goal is to rearrange the kitchen so you can dig through the cabinets to your heart’s content. We’ve got our cleaning stuff behind baby locks but you think THAT’S fun too because you can easily bang the doors against the frame.
So all in all, this past month has been a whirlwind of personality and movement. Who knows what we’ll see next? Maybe even some top teeth?
