Happy 9 Months (only a month-ish late)

Grayson Patrick you are 9 flipping months old. Wow. 

You still rock at life and continue to make me whole world spin round and round.  The time between 8-9 months may just be my most favorite time of all.  You are so interactive and such a little snuggle bug.  Now, you crawl right over to me and put your head down on my shoulder. I just melt. Most mornings we will pull you into bed and you will just lay your head on us. It is THE cutest thing.  I am head over heels in love with you. 

Apparently our at home scale isn't great and you're smaller than we thought you were previous months. As of your 9 month check up on the 10th of August, you are 18lbs, 3oz (25th %) and 28 inches tall (45th %).  You still wear diapers that are size three and 6-12 and 9 month clothing.  I'm surprised you're only 18lbs, because you LOVE TO EAT. Seriously, food is your friend. We started you on all table food for the meals that you are home with us and you took to it immediately.  You've had the pincher grasp down for awhile now so you do a great job self feeding.  We have yet to find a food that you don't like and you've tried many, many foods.  Your favorites include yogurt, cheese, broccoli, purple grapes and turkey.  Life is a lot easier now that we can feed you right off of our plates. It also makes dining out much more enjoyable because you are quiet whenever you can sample our food.  The only downside... I cannot eat ANYTHING without you crawling over and clamoring your way up me for a taste.  Drink wise, you are still on all breast milk.  You also have two new teeth-- the front two on the top-- bringing your teeth total to five!

Again, you've changed so much this month. You are a totally different child.  Now you manuver yourself around the floor with ease.  You can get into a sitting, kneeling, and a squatting position so smoothly.  You also love to cruise around the living room and do so as long as you're holding on to at least one other object.  You look like you're an old pro, even though you just started.  It now takes you .0003 seconds to pull yourself to standing which is dangerous.  You can get into anything in a split second.  You especially love trying to steal the remote, pressing buttons on the cable box and DVD player, and trying to pull the Wii off of the TV stand.  Who needs toys when you can play with electronics, right?

You also wave, high five and are much more socially interactive.  You've been mimicking things that I show you, but now you do it all the time and with fewer repetitions.  You think it's hysterical when Polly gets hyper and you love watching me vacuum.  Your favorite toys are your stride and ride dinosaur, your fisher price activity table and your books. You love reading and looking at books.  You current favorite: That's not my Kitten. You love petting the kitten's fur at the end of the story. You also love playing patty cake and get a kick out of peek a boo. 

This month you had your first trip to Bethany beach and you LOVED the ocean.  It amazes me how well you do with loud noises and scary situations. So far we've been saved from any stranger anxiety as well. Instead, you love strolling the grocery store aisles flirting, smiling and waving at everyone that will look your way.  You are definitely a social child. 

In regards to sleeping, you are STILL up once a night. I probably could fix that, but I'm so exhausted at 2am that I'm not even sure where to start.  In the grand scheme of things, I don't really mind. It gives me an extra 20 minutes each day to hold you in my arms and I know how fast time goes.  You're basically a big boy in the blink of an eye, so I'm going to enjoy cuddling my little tiny thing for as long as I can.  Your pediatrician says that I need to stop nursing you to sleep and to put you to bed awake. It's so hard because my favorite time of day is that 1/2 that I spend nursing and rocking you to sleep. I could stare at your beautiful , sleeping face for an hour if I could, and I often do.  I could just eat up your chubby little chicks, your super long, curly lashes and the tiny little sigh noises you make as you fall asleep.  So yes, you don't sleep through the night. It is totally my fault, but I'm going to relish in it-- at least until we stop nursing. 

Grayson, I cannot believe that you've been outside of me for as long as you were inside of me. I can't remember how I even lived and survived without you, but at the same time, time just flew right by.

I love you my sweet baby boy. My darling, Graby. I love nothing more than watching you grow and learn. How did I get so lucky?

Love, Mommy
