9 months Earth side ❤️
Your hair, like your teeth, keeps multiplying. Just this past weekend, every other person at Costco stopped us to comment on it and tell us how beautiful you are. Your brother has figured out he can *kind of* pick you up, and he now proudly carries (read: drags) you everywhere. You think it’s awesome for the most part, but not so much when your face ends up in the couch.
You are around 24 pounds and standing proudly at 29 inches tall. You are still happily in 12-18 month clothing, and socks are a funny joke because nothing fits around your cankles. You still hate bottles and love the boob, and so far love everything we put in front of you to eat.
Both of your bottom teeth popped through, as has the bottom of your top left. You look like a little hillbilly baby with your three pearly whites, and somehow it just makes you cuter.
You still laugh in my face when it comes to sleep. Naps are nonexistent unless mama holds you, but thankfully you give me some good bouts of sleep at night.
You are pulling to stand like an old pro, and have started cruising along the furniture and climbing stairs. A little piece of me cries every time you expertly take steps when we hold your hands.
You say “dada” all the time (thanks, bro), and have started making an “M” noise when you want to nurse. You love copying everything we do, and think giving kisses is super funny.
You are my chunky monkey, my buddy, and the best little brother there ever was.
Happy 9 months, sweet baby J.
