You turned 9 months old on January 4, 2013!
You weigh 16lbs 5oz and you are 28 inches long. You are in the 25th percentile for weight and 75th percentile for height. You have gained a little more than 2lbs since your 6 month check up, so you are doing well.
You are pulling up on everything you can, and you have started taking steps around tables and the couch. You also reach from the coffee table to the couch. You love for us to hold your hands and help you walk. Your brother was 10 months old when he started walking, and it looks like you will be close to that age when you start walking too.
You wear a size 3 diaper and 9 month clothes and a few things that are 12 months. You wear a size 4 shoe. You got your first pair of real walking shoes for Christmas. You weren't crazy about them at first, but they don't bother you anymore.
You can clap your hands, and you love to dance. Anytime you hear music you move your head and body like you are dancing. If we sing to you, you will "sing" with us. You are trying so hard to talk to us!
Aiden can make you laugh more than anyone else. You love to watch him and play with him. Sometimes he gets too close or starts bothering you and you will get mad.
Jenny is your best friend! You just love to be around her. I can already tell that when you are older you will follow her around and want to do everything she does. I hope that y'all will always be best friends.
You have 4 teeth: the two bottom middle, and your incisors on top. You are still missing the top middle two, but you have the ones on either side of those. We say you look like a vampire.
You usually take one nap a day, and occasionally you doze off in the afternoons for a little while. You are sleeping 10-12 hours overnight, usually from 9pm-9pm. Your nap is usually from 1-3, but sometimes a little earlier.
You are such a blessing to us and we love you more each day! You have the sweetest personality and you are the happiest baby I have ever seen. You very rarely cry, and you are almost always smiling. We are so thankful that God chose us to be your parents!
Mama & Daddy
