Happy 9 months, sweet boy!
Every day you seem more like a little boy than a baby.
- You finally have some hair growing in, though it’s so white blond, you still look bald from a distance (except for the mullet you’re rocking in the back.)
- You’re crawling all over the place, and you love to chase the dogs and the cat.
- You got to swing on a real swing set for the first time at your cousins’ house.
- We tried some new foods: yogurt and mum-mums. You love mum-mums!
- You have a couple of teeth coming in! (One on the top, and one on the bottom.)
It won’t be long before you’re crusin’ around the house. Then we’re in real trouble…
I love you!
(For the record, getting a 9 month old to stay still and pose for a picture is impossible…)
