9 months

Happy 9 months, my dear sweet Sullymon!!!  You are growing like crazy and loving life. 

-puffs and yogi drops
-posing for the camera
-being carried around
-remotes and cell phones
-other kids
-chicken and apples baby food(yuck!)

Although you are not necessarily crawling yet, you can get places by flopping forward.  You may be a yoga instructor when you grow up as you are always working on different yoga poses, mainly different variations of downward facing dog.  You are working on your baby 6 pack abs I guess.  You can finally go from a crawling position to a sitting position.  You can pull yourself up to a standing position.

You are getting your 7th tooth.  I just love your toothy grin which you flash me constantly.

You still get up to eat 1 or 2 5 oz bottles everynight.  You have slept straight through the night 5 times in your life.

Grumpy Gary comes out if you only get one nap at daycare.  And Grumpy Gary is NOT pleasant.  Thankfully, he only comes out on very rare occasions.

You have a little stranger anxiety sometimes but you warm up very fast.

You are wearing some 6, some 9 and some 12 month clothes.

Overall, you are a happy, healthy little guy.  You seem to be losing your baby looks and resembling a little boy.  You are pure gold joy to your mama and daddy.  We love you more than we ever thought it possible to love a baby.  If I think about it too much, I tear up.  So I try not to think about how much I love you and how much better my life is with you in it and just enjoy each day as it comes and celebrate each milestone with lots of hugs, kisses and claps.
