9 Months

Dear Daniel,
You are 9 months old today.  Isn't 9 months the age that I always thought about babies being full of personality and cuteness before I was your mom?  Newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months.  Those are the biggies before you turn a year, right? (not sure what's up with the "big" months being all 3 months increments).

Well, Daddy and I have been saying on a daily basis that we are amazed by what you are up to lately.  I know everyone thinks their kid is the greatest in all ways, but you are truly making us stop and wonder if actually are the greatest!

Here's what you've been up to over the last month:
Waving (this happened upon his return from a long weekend at the beach while we were shooting the HGTV show)
Talking up a STORM
Dancing (rocking back and forth when music comes on)
Finding a funny noise and repeating it (specifically the sound of a Pterodactyl)
Trying to "cruise" once you've pulled yourself up to standing
Crawling super fast
Banging anything you can get your hands on together
Trying to figure out how things go inside other things (thanks to Sara for this gift)
Throwing your pacifiers (yes, plural) out of his crib and then crying to get us to come into your room
Sharing (probably the cutest of all of your new skills)

The days of your first year are literally starting to tick by and I can see you growing every single day.  You make us laugh, you exhaust us, you amaze us.  You are so ridiculously determined and you really never give up on anything once you start.

Happy 9 month birthday, my love.  You make me laugh out loud and love more than I thought possible.  I kind of want to sneak into your room and snuggle with you right now! 

Luckily your Aunt Andi could be here to celebrate (and babysit) for your bi 9 monther!
