Nine Months

The amount of time I carried him. How is it that those 9 months felt like 900 as they crept by and these last ones have passed in the blink of an eye? Someone told me that having a baby makes the days long but the years short, and sitting here, 3/4 of the way through Sweetie Pea's first year I believe that's true. I can't even let myself think ahead to how fast his future years are going to go by. So instead, let's talk about what he can do at this age. At 9 months, Sweets:

Crawls like a maniac - he is hard to keep up with!

Is a phenomenal eater. There's only one thing he won't eat and that's peas. I hate them too, so I can't hold that against him. He loves fruit, anything orange, banana muffins, Cheerios, yogurt and cottage cheese.

Is still nursing.

Has six teeth.

Sometimes sleeps through the night. I thought this day would never come! And I've finally gotten to the point where if he does sleep through, I'm not a total basketcase in the morning thinking that something is wrong.

Takes two predictable naps a day - an hour and a half in the morning and an hour in the afternoon.

Weighs 18 1/2 pounds and wears mostly 9 month clothes.

Loves his baths in the big tub!

Smiles, laughs, and babbles like crazy.

Is SO close to pulling up - one right move and he'll have it!

Is not a fan of the car. I never know if I'm going to get Chatty Baby or Screaming Baby when we drive somewhere.

I am in love with this age! He is so much fun and so freakin' adorable I can't stand it.

Chillin' with Grandma F

Hey, it's finally warm enough to go outside!

Are you the cutest? Seriously.

We love you, Little Bean.
