Nine Months

You have changed so much this month! You are learning new tricks almost daily and mastering the old ones. We can't believe how fast these 9 months have flown. You are such a joy to us!
You still wave all the time. It is still one of my very favorite things you do.
You are repeating many words. Most of them are just once though. Words you use properly are mama, dada, bubba, bite, up, bye-bye, cup, pat (for pat-a-cake), dog, and just this week, you said, "Night-night." It made me swoon.
You give kisses, hugs and high fives (on occasion).
You have started to eat crackers and Baby Mum Mums, which are your very favorite snacks. You tried yogurt melts and puffs and didn't like them yet. Yogurt is your favorite food right now.
You have just learned how to "roll it up" when you pat-a-cake, although it looks more like "shake it up." Either way, it's simply adorable!
You weighed 17 pounds and 9 ounces and were 28 1/2 inches long at your checkup. You got the second half of your flu shot and didn't cry at all. You looked pretty mad at Nurse Angie, but you forgave her by the time we left. You still don't have any teeth and aren't interested in crawling. I feel like you will have a tooth any second, although I've been saying that for months. Dr. Whitby said that the later you get them, the better they'll be. So we're sticking to that! He wasn't concerned at all that you aren't crawling and encouraged me to enjoy having an immobile baby a bit longer. You roll all over the place to get what you want and can now sit up from a laying down position. We can't wait to see what the next month brings!
