You are 9 months old today! It amazes me to think that you have been outside my body for just as long as you were inside of it. I can't believe how much you have grown! You have blessed my life more than I thought possible!
At 9 months you:
weigh 17 lbs 11 oz (11%)
are 29 inches long (71%)
sleep 12 hours at night
and 3 to 5 hours for naps
eat baby food willingly but you prefer to feed yourself
use the pincer grasp to pick up food
love carbohydrates and dislike most veggies
can shove about 35 cheerios in your mouth at once
hold your own bottle
crawl so fast! (I fear the day you learn to run!)
pull up on furniture and "cruise"
love knocking down block towers
love cheering on the Tide
have posed for GQ
are in touch with your sensitive side
are familiar with head injuries
curl your toes when you stand
are full of curiosity
still love your mommy best!
You know, when Daddy is not around!
