9 Months


Dear CT,

You are the sweetest babe.  Seriously, so sweet.  There aren't many moments where you are still or silent these days, but when you are you are the best snuggler.  You are talking up a storm.  Lots of "Da-da," "uh-oh," and the beginnings of "Ma."  

You have 4 teeth now!  4!!  And sometimes if I don't get my finger out of the way in time, I feel all 4 and they are strong.  You've started eating some real food like puffs, yogurt melts, and Ritz crackers.  You're really good at bringing it right to your mouth until you get tired.  Then you just hold it in your hand and stick your thumb in your mouth instead.  It's so cute how you play with the food while your thumb occupies your mouth.  

You are so tall.  You are practically taking up your entire stroller.  And you want to walk and crawl everywhere.  It's almost time to put away the walker and jumper because you hate being confined by them.  I understand - you are very inquisitive.  You love watching out the door as Daddy mows the lawn and we even put a special chair on the front stoop so we can sit out there with you and watch the cars go by in the evenings.  

I am anxiously anticipating your next doctor appointment.  I can't wait to hear about how strong you are.  You are going to be something amazing one day.  I just know it.

Love you,
Mommy
