9 Months Old!

Wow. Doesn't nine months seem old? Aaron will be celebrating his 9 month birthday today with Kimmie and Papa John. They will be here at 3:30 and will keep Aaron until Sunday afternoon. I'll bet they're going to be real tired by then!

Aaron is the weight of an average 8 month old and the height of an average 12 month old. He is wearing 12 mo clothes. Developmentally, he is average or a little ahead. He is a great crawler and he has exceptional balance. He stands alone very well and walks holding on loosely to furniture.

Aaron is very busy. He is an explorer and a climber. He is interested in everything and can be very focused. Strangers have commented to me about how intensely observant Aaron seems. He is happy, happy, happy. People tell us that all of the time. And unless he's not feeling well, he is a very easy child. He is learning new sounds every day and he loves to hear himself talk. He laughs and squeals a lot. He loves figuring out how toys work.

He loves to be outdoors and he loves music. He is a great sleeper. He gets anywhere from 11 to 13 hours straight at night and he takes two naps a day of 1 to 2 hours each. We just love this Little Man! We hope you have a blessed weekend - we're headed to Jefferson today!

I especially love the picture where he has obviously discovered the cupcake behind him! What wonderful memories you will have with these monthly birthday pictures--such a great idea!
