9 Months Old

Big smiles

Dear Kyan:

Today, you are nine months old and I can hardly believe it. Time has flown by. It seems like every day, you are growing by leaps and bounds.

You sit up all on your own, and LOVE to play.....You have musical instruments, toy cars, a talking birdbath that teaches you the letters of the alphabet (no, I don't get that one either), wooden blocks, and many stuffed animals. Yet, for the last few days, your favorite toy has been an empty file folder and small pile of junk mail sitting on the floor of my office........You will play happily with the aforementioned pile of mail for at least an hour with no complaints. Once your teeth come in, I plan on using you as a replacement for the paper shredder.

You are still not crawling, and although I am tryin to work with you on this, I am beginning to think "Why ruin a good thing?" You basically stay where I put you right might move a couple feet in any direction, but that's about it......So I don;t yet have to worry about you getting into the liquor cabinet and drinking all of Mommy's Kahlua.

Though I have thought you were teething since you were two months old, it FINALLY seems to be happening now.....There is a very definite bump on your lower gums (left side) that you HATE for me to touch. I am have been plying you with many a frozen banana over the last week or two so that you might have some temporary relief.

You speak very seriously in single sylablles these days......Duh, duh, buh-buh, Mama (only when you are pissed), and Iiiiieeehhhhh! I am trying to be better about walking around and naming objects as we go.

The best part about all this has been watching you grow and progress. It is SO Much fun watching you start to interact with the world. Every day I feel so lucky that you are my son.......I knew having a baby would be special, but I could not have predicted it would be so FUN.

Kyan-You make every day a joy-from the moment I wake up, I look forward to seeing your smiling face. I love you so much.....and although in nostalgic moments I wish you would stop growing, I am very much looking forward to the future and everything that is in store for us.
