Hello, 9 month old

My little sweetheart is officially 9 months old now (as of yesterday.) I have noticed huge changes in him over the past week. Not physically, I never seem to notice those ones likes everybody else because I see him everyday, but his personality is just becoming more and more obvious to me.

He is great at independent play. I can actually leave him on the carpet with a bunch of toys and he will be quite happy for a good half an hour, sometimes more.

He does not like goodbyes. When certain people go to leave him now he will start crying and hold his arms out for them. Its sweet but heartbreaking at the same time.

He loves to be the centre of attention. Nothing makes him happier then having a whole group of people focused on him while he demonstrates his 'patty cake' skills, points out different things in the room or blows raspberries in their faces.

He does not like to have a dirty diaper. He can be in the middle of drinking his bottle or eating his food, but if he poops it is all over. He will not eat another bite until he has been changed. I am hoping this means he will be an easy one to potty train!

His favorite things are music, Mickey Mouse, kicking a ball, hitting his 'drum' with blocks and splashing in the bath.
In just three short months my baby boy will be a year old. I get misty eyed just thinking about it!
Why do they have to grow up so fast!?


  1. 9 months is such a milestone! i found that sam's baby-personality was lessening and he became more of a kid. (still a baby, but more his own person and less of an extension of patrick or me.) i'm sure you will fall more and more in love with each stage as it comes - the wonder of watching them grow and master mad new skills definitely makes up for the heartache of leaving baby-babyhood behind <3.

  2. Yup he's turning more and more into a little person all the time. Before long he'll start partly talking and we'll have all kinds of new fun memories with him like we do with Matthew when he was starting to talk. ;-) :-D
