David: {Nine Months}

David –

You are nine months old today!

According to our measurements at home, you are 18 lbs, 4 oz and 26-3/4 inches long. You have a well check-up on Friday, so I will update with your official numbers then. Update: You are 18 lbs, 6.4 oz and 27-1/4 inches long
You can wear a 3-6 Month button down shirt, but you are most comfortable in 6-9 Month, and 9 clothes. You also have to wear 6-9 Month PJs consistently. You wear size 3 diapers, but you will be moving to size 4 as soon as we run out. We have Pampers Cruisers or Luvs for the day, and Huggies Overnight for bedtime.

You decided that you no longer want anything to do with puree food a few days after your 8 month birthday. You are my bottomless pit, so I'm trying to give you anything I can. You seem to like Cheerios, Mum-Mums, spaghetti, turkey meat, broccoli, and rice cakes the best! You still drink 4 bottles a day on average.

You sleep from 8:30 pm to 7 am most nights. You usually get a nice big nap in the afternoon, but one small morning nap, and only if I hold you. There is a bit of crying when I put you down for you big nap, but you will settle down after awhile a sleep pretty well. You are able to sleep without being swaddled, which is good because you like to sleep on your side or your tummy.

Baths are better in the big tub, and you definitely like to bathe with sister in the tub with you. You're starting to like bubbles, but mostly you just want to splash everything :) 
You have 2 teeth! I don't seem any more coming at the moment, but you are still gumming and gnawing on everything you can!

Overall you are an easy baby and we just love watching your sweet personality bloom. You are starting to raise one eyebrow when you're being flirty and I find it hilarious! Also, you love hold hair and touching faces. You don't do it in a mean way, but because you just want to be close. You are also starting to say "mamamama" more consistently and with a little bit of intent :)

Your current nicknames are: Baby Davey, Davey Boy, LT, Bug, Dude, Dahveed, and Bubbie.

You are showing more signs of separation anxiety, but still go to the church nursery pretty easily. Hopefully we can get you through that phase relatively easily :)

You can roll in both directions, crawl backwards, and, (as of three days ago), you can army crawl! You do the little pelvic thrust, turn on your tummy 360*, and can even get on all four for a few seconds. You also love to bounce and stand on your legs.

Everything goes in your mouth right now. Toys, non-toys, hair, baby wipes, really whatever you can grab. You don't have any favorite toys just yet, but we'll see if that changes!

Sister is starting school this week, which means we'll get 2 mornings a week with just the two of us. I know we'll have some fun, but I also hope you don't miss your sister too much. You may not know what to do without her running around and talking all day long.

LT, I just love you so much. Even on the hardest days, looking into your face makes me so happy. It's so much fun to watch you grow, and I'm honored to be your mommy. I just know you will do great things and pray that God continues to bless you and keep you in His grace :)

Now some outtakes:
 {Just chillaxin' for the ladies ;)}

 {Uh oh! We are on full LT alert! This is not a drill!}

 {Daddy is making some faces to help calm him down...}

 {and there's the cool camera that's always in his face}

{Aaaaaaand we're done}

And some comparisons!
