Graham || 9 months

Dear Graham,

You are 9 months old.  It is so much fun watching your little personality come out.  You are a pretty laid back guy and just sit back and take it all in.  You seem to really pay attention to your surroundings...taking it all in.  And with your dark hair and big blue eyes and easy smile....I'm in big, big trouble!

You aren't crawling yet but you are very close.  You can go from sitting to all fours and then back to sitting.  You will rock on all fours and go backwards but not forwards yet.  But you scoot around on your belly and can pretty much figure out how to get to whatever you want.  I know it won't be much longer but you just take your time...I'm not ready for my baby to be crawling!

You are wearing mostly 12 month clothes.  A few 9 month things still fit.  You are in size 3 diapers.  I'm not sure about your shoe size because you never wear them but you have tiny little feet right now.  But that is about all that is little about you.

We went to the Dr. for your 9 month check up. Your official stats:
Weight - 20 lbs. 7 oz. - 63 percentile
Height - 29 inches - 80 percentile
Head - 18 inches - 68 percentile

You are still nursing and you nurse in the morning and at night before bed and take 2 bottles at daycare - around 7 oz.  When you aren't at daycare you nurse 4 times a day - about every 4 hours.  You are eating baby food 3 times a day.  I'm still making most of it.  You aren't too fond of anything green but you will tolerate it, you definitely prefer fruits or anything orange -- carrots, sweet potato's, squash.  And you love puffs!

You go to bed around 7:30 and usually wake up around 7am.  You take 2 naps - mid morning and afternoon.  Although, your naps at daycare are pretty inconsistent.  You still prefer to be rocked to sleep.  Sometimes we get lucky and you'll put yourself to sleep if we lay you down awake.  But most times you start fussing and I just don't have it in me to hear my babies cry so I'll rock you until you fall asleep. 

And you still love your middle two fingers.  Especially when you are tired!  It's so cute...when you get sleepy you start sucking your middle two fingers and playing with your hair.

You have 2 teeth on bottom.  And you chew on everything and drool like crazy.  We've actually already had 2 incidents at daycare with you "biting".  But we all know it is because you are teething and want to chew on everything.

You love sitting in the floor and playing with toys.  Your favorite toys are those things you shouldn't have...remotes and especially cell phones!  You love to swing.  And you really love your brother.  He makes you smile and laugh more than anyone.  And he loves you too!  Once he gets a laugh out of you, he'll keep doing whatever it is that is making you laugh over and over again.  It really is the sweetest thing!

I love you, my beautiful, sweet, 9 month old baby boy!  Lots and lots and lots and lots...

Here are some pictures of you at 9 months:
