I know I usually say you are growing so fast but I think technically you have actually slowed down on your growing this month, which is good since you are always in the 99th percent.
You are however developing a big personality. Not that you didn't have one before but now, you let it all hang out. You demand what you want when you want it and sadly enough most of the time you get it. Maybe that is why you are still not really any closer to moving, if you want something you just scream and whine enough and I get it for you because I get tired of hearing the whines. Boy are you good at whining!
You also excel at eating, anything and everything we give you. All solid food that you try you like and you get very mad if we don't offer you some of what we are having. You are finally getting the hang of puffs and we found one sippy cup you will actually drink out of. Of course it is a pink one with a Disney princess on it, a shower gift that Mommy thought was sorta ugly. We tried probably 10 others and this is the only one you will drink out of. Stubborn you are!
This month you have developed a LOVE of standing. You want us to sit in front of you and let you pull up and stand holding on to our fingers all the time. If we don't you get very mad and whine. You also like to bounce up and down and "dance, dance" while holding on. Every one in a while you will let go and fall on your butt, you actually seem to like the falling part, and you do it multiple times. It's good I guess, teaching you how to fall once you are up.
You got 2 teeth this month! The last one actually came through today. You haven't had any real teething symptoms like Mommy hears others complaining about, maybe it is the amber teething necklace that you wear all the time. Mommy was a little sceptical at first about it but it seems to really help.
You are babbling more than ever. You love to "talk" to anything, you call for the dogs in the morning and you scream at them on a regular basis to get their attention. Your new favorite thing is to say Dadadada over and over in different pitches and lengths. I'm not 100% sure we should consider that your first word but you do say it an awful lot. You also learned to wave hi and bye this month. You actually did it for the first time at a dog that walks in our neighborhood. Now you wave at everyone.
You love to be social but you can also get a little shy and hide your head in our shoulder if you are unsure, it is super cute!
You are such a great baby and we love you to pieces!
Love Mommy and Daddy
Oh and also since it is your 9 month birthday Mommy decided to bring out the dreaded EVIL purple dog to see if you had gotten over your fear of her.
