9 Months Old!

Dear Eli,

One year ago your brother was 9 months old and you were 3 months away from being born! And now here you are, the 9 month old. It is hard to believe that in 3 short months you will be our little 1 year old!

Your playful personality has really been showing itself lately. Especially at mealtime...You will flop your head over to one side, giggle, then flop to the other side. Gage thinks that's pretty funny and then he does it too.

You have become quite the screamer. Sometimes when you're happy, sometimes when you're angry, and sometimes in between.

You are reaching your arms up for me. I just love that. You also pull on my pant leg and let me know that you want me to pick you up. You love kisses and love to give me kisses too.

You aren't crawling yet, but you get around! You scootch and roll, and go from sitting to your belly in no time flat. You have gotten "stuck" a lot on your belly in your crib. You were waking up 2-3 times a night needing a roll-over! Thankfully it seems as though you are maneuvering yourself better these days.

You love attention! I'll look down at you in the grocery store and see you smiling away at someone who's smiling at you nearby.

You love to steal sippy cups...

You love to go places! If you're a little cranky at home I put you in the car and you're immediately happy in your car seat. You're usually very good in shopping carts too.

You are doing great sweet Eli. We love you so! It is with all my heart I say I love being your mommy. May the Lord bless you and keep you and give me much wisdom to raise you well.

Loving you always,
