10 Months!

 This month has been all about really starting to explore your world and eating a ton to give you the energy for it!  You have taken off and are pulling up everywhere.  I found out that you could climb the stairs by finding you playing at the top of them one day!  Thank God for guardian angels among us! (Don't worry baby gates are up and being used now) 
You also really love cords like your cousin third child boys!
You eat and eat and eat and just keep going until I eventually have to cut you off...this makes daddy so proud.
You have started showing more interest in books...this makes mommy so proud. You hand (throw) them to me and will turn the pages as I read to you on my lap.  Of course, you still love to chew on them too.
We are all treasuring these last couple months of you being a baby!

9 Months!

 You have hit the point where you have been in the real world longer than you were in the womb!  As you can see in this picture, as your hair is growing out it has a reddish tint.  Several people have commented on your red hair, even strangers.  We have no idea where it came from! My guess it will change and darken over time.
 This biggest news this month is that you started crawling!  Thank you, thank you, thank you for waiting until we moved and had the big stuff unpacked.  Your timing was perfect. 
(you can tell by the room that we had just moved in)

 You got the hang of crawling quickly after you started and almost immediately started pulling up on anything you could get your hands on.

 You FINALLY got a tooth!
 You are getting big enough to hang with your sisters and do some of the things they are doing.  You can still be found on my hip or in the baby carrier a lot of the time though.
You were so determined to get to this water.
I'm so torn between encouraging you on as we celebrate these milestones and and wanting you stay a baby. ;)  Of course as your mama, I will do the former and always be your biggest cheerleader.
