Dear Davis–9 Months

     Oh Davis…Mama is late with this one, but you have been so busy being nine months old!  You are everywhere this month.  No walking yet, but you go anywhere you want – fast.  You are still so wild, but you are such a good baby!

     There was no slowing down this month!  You are still so fast and busy and wild.  Your crawl is almost a little aggressive…you stomp your hands and knees.  Sometimes, you even “run;” you put your head down and do a fast power crawl, and it is so funny!  You can pull up on absolutely anything and cruise around with no problems.  You haven’t been climbing in the shelves as much this month, but you can pull things off when you want (even the heavy book basket).
     Because you’re such a mover, you want everybody else to be a mover too.  If you’re playing and I’m sitting (or Heaven forbid, eating a snack), you make it known that you are displeased.  Your absolute favorite is when your daddy or I lay in the floor, and you can crawl all over us like a jungle gym.  You are learning how to mind…or not, and it is really fun to watch.  You know what “no” means, but you don’t always mind.  You know what I mean when I tell you to close the cabinets…but you don’t always do it.  Every day you are becoming more of your own person, and you love to make your own decisions!

I did not realize how blurry this picture was, but you and Della and Suzanne had the best time wagonning all over the neighborhood!

This was one of the rare moments you wanted to be in my lap…sort of.

Stats
Length: 28 1/4 in. (50th percentile)
Weight: 20 lb. (50th percentile)
Head: 46 3/4 cm. (90th percentile)
Eating: 8 oz. at 6 a.m., 10 a.m., 2 p.m., and 6 p.m. You still take 3 meals a day and a snack.  You pretty much never have baby food unless we’re out somewhere or in a big hurry.  You love bananas, applesauce, beans of any kind, chicken, sweet potatoes, saltines… You ate an entire can of sweet potatoes for dinner the other night. Oink.
Sleeping: 7:00ish to 6:00ish and one or two naps (one at school, two at home)

You have mastered object permanence…when something is gone, you want it back.  In this case, it was me.  I walked away for a literal second, and you were too overcome to finish dinner.  Getting those two bottom teeth has made you a little dramatic.
You also love to sit at the front door and look at the neighbors!  You are very social.

IMG_2553We like to visit Daddy at work, but that long hallway is a beast when I’m carrying you!  You are excited to see Daddy no matter where we are or what time it is.  When we both go in to wake you up, you get so excited and bounce back and forth between the two of us.  You know who your people are.

You have so much to do…pictures are low on your list of priorities.  It took Daddy and me to get these pictures, and it was still a circus!

Davis Malcolm, I didn’t realize how big you look until these pictures were all next to each other!
