This past Friday, I turned 9 months old! We celebrated because I have now spent more of my little life out in this great big world, than in mommy's tummy! I have been SO busy growing, and am doing so many new & cool things... I am almost ALWAYS happy, smiling & laughing, but mommy says I'm beginning to get a little temper. I just know what I want, and when I want it... that's all! I'm THINKING about crawling someday soon, and even beginning to "cruise" a little while holding onto furniture... mommy & daddy better baby proof our house soon! I'm pulling myself up on my own, and walking slowly with help. I'm sleeping 10-12 hours at night (most nights, unless I feel liking seeing my mommy... and then I let her know!), I "talk" ALL the time (I can say "ma-ma", "da-da", and "ba-ba") & LOVE screaching really loud!
Some of my favorite things now are:
* Jumping in my jumper (always a favorite), sitting & playing, eating cheerios, sitting in shopping carts, dancing to music, sleeping with my binkie & soft bunny, riding on daddy's shoulders & in my hiking backpack, playing with Cody, stealing the tv remotes and pushing all the buttons, touch and feel books (especially "Pat the Bunny"), putting everything in my mouth, and ESPECIALLY my mommy & daddy!
Some things I don't like very much are:
* Eating or touching any chunky or slimy foods (why can't I just stick to smooth baby food?), and getting my face wiped, sitting still (I'm ALWAYS on the move... I even move around in my sleep!)
I SAID I was a happy baby... mommy could hardly think of any things I don't like! Well, all that growing is SO exhausting... I think I'm going to rest these big blue eyes and take a nap now! Thanks for catching up on my activities! I'll keep you posted if anything new happens!
