I'm 9 months old today!
I have now been out of the womb as long as I was in it. Yay!
This month has been a trying one for me as Mommy insists on me sleeping in my crib for naps. I was so happy sleeping on her in the sling, but I guess I was getting a little too heavy for her to cart around 3-4 hours a day. My naps are slowly getting better, but not great. Maybe I'll have it mastered by the end of the month. I also got FOUR teeth at once this month! It really wasn't that big of a deal for me, actually.
I'm eating like a horse these days! I eat all kinds of delicious (pureed) foods like carrots, brusselsprouts and broccoli. Mmmm-mmm good! While I still have a strong gag reflex, I managed to steal a raisin from Johnny's bowl the other day and actually ate it. It was delicious! So now Mommy is trying out finger foods here and there. It's a good thing, too, because I need to work on my pincher grasp. I have the palm grasp down, though, and have used it to shovel dirt into my mouth a couple of times...
I crawl like a madman now and follow Johnny around pretty much everywhere, much to his chagrin. I also pull up on anything and have mastered cruising. I'm even transferring from one piece of furniture to another already! What can I say? I'm a beast.
