9 months old!

Sorry - we've kinda had a lot going on the past few weeks, errr month! Wow, I cannot believe Ian is already 9 months old. I mean, when did that happen? I swear, I was just taking his picture for 8 months.... oh time, you're just such a trickster!

At 9 months old, Ian:
• Wears size 4 diapers and size 12 - 18 month clothes - big boy!
• Weighs about 21 1/2 pounds!
• Is still CRAZY and will not sit still!
• Still is toothless
• Crawls non-stop (and at a very fast speed), pulls up on everything, climbs up the stairs all by himself, and cruises from one piece of furniture to the next
• Can stand, completely unassisted for a few seconds!!
• Lets out these excited screams alllllll the time.
• Claps his hands, signs "milk", and "more"
• Understands "no", and will shake his head back and forth when he doesn't want something you're trying to give him or when he doesn't want to go to someone else.
• And, although he understands "no", he just laughs at us and keeps heading toward the dog food bowl or the fireplace even though we repeated say, "No sir!"
• Still says "dad", "mama" and "ball" at random times. I think the only one he actually knows the meaning of is "ball"...
• Loves going to Ms. Jennifer’s, and always has a smile when we pick him up.

Happy 9 Months, sweet baby! We love you more than you will ever know. And, were so thankful for each day we get to be your parents. We're so lucky.
