Nine Months!

Oh my little Luca,
You're changing SO fast and becoming such a little man! At 9 months you're 18lbs 10oz, 28.5 inches long, and your big noggen is 18 inches around- what a big boy. Mommy accidentally scratched your face just above your lip a few days before taking your nine month photos, so I'm sorry to say you'll have evidence I made that mistake- I feel just terrible, but it's healing (and you're healthy, so I guess I'm doing an ok job).

You're just the sweetest little boy I know- you give the BEST hugs, and love to kiss kiss with mouth wide open. This month you've finally popped a tooth, but it took two weeks for us to really see the little pearly white. I tried so hard to get a picture of your one lonely tooth, but you wouldn't let me- you're very opinionated these days, little man. You've discovered that if you smack your mouth you can feel your tooth, so you're doing a lot of lip smacking these days- your Auntie Ashley said you reminded her of a little old man without his dentures and when I saw you do it I couldn't agree more! It's too cute.

You love to eat, as to be expected with your daddy's big appetite! Your favorite foods are still plums, pears, and cheerios, but you rarely push away anything new. You even tried tofu and didn't refuse it- maybe we can work on Daddy to get him to like it?! Probably a long shot.
You love to babble and giggle. You've said mama, dada, and lots of "hi". Usually during snack, lunch or dinner we talk. You tell me about your day, and we sing and dance. You sway side to side when mommy sings, and it might be the cutest thing I've ever seen.
You're really a wiggle worm these days, so it's hard to get you to say still for a picture- You're always looking to explore everything around you, and that means I have to keep a close eye on you! You pull yourself up to stand, and Daddy had to lower the crib you play in while we get ready in the morning. I'm sure we'll need to lower the crib in your room soon, but for now you just like to sleep there.

Getting a little mischievous already...time for mommy to put down the camera!

Last month you started the pre-crawl rock, where you would rock back and forth. This month it's the pre-crawl plank/push up. You're SO close to crawling and this morning just before I sat down to write this, I'm pretty sure you crawled a few steps forward while I was in the kitchen. I'll catch you on camera soon:)

Your favorite toys change daily, but you really love mommy's hairbrush, any kitchen utensil, your piano, and you're starting to love rolling your toy soccer ball.
 We love you so much, little man. I can't wait to see your face in the morning, and I am so blessed to be your mama- even if I occasionally accidentally scratch you :(

Love you Luca,
Your mama
