Nine Months

You just keep getting more handsome big little guy!

This was a big month developmentally. You:

-Started crawling. all. over. the. place

-Got your 1st 2 (bottom) teeth

-Started clapping and dancing

-Got your 1st haircut by yours truly (although as quickly as it grows, I think it’s time for another one already!)

-Started purposely pulling your sisters (or my) hair and cackling. You think it’s just the funniest. thing. ever. to hear them whine and squeal

-Started saying “babba” which brings your vocabulary to 3 words

-Started pulling yourself up to a stance. I’m so glad I captured it because it only happens a couple times a day.

You can tell by your expression that 22+ pounds is not easy to support

As tempting as it is, I still have yet to buy one article of clothing for you, thanks to generous friends with great taste!  And still, you are sporting way cooler clothes than momma could afford 😉 Speaking of, you are still wearing 18 months which is the longest stretch of time in one size 😉

You are pretty independent and don’t seem to get upset when left alone for a bit, just like Sweet G. You also seem pretty cautious. Not quite as much as Sweets but not as reckless as Spicy was.

But you are all boy. You are already throwing balls and banging your hands (or anything in your hands) on tables, doors and faces. 😉   However, you are also so affectionate. You love to be held and you just eat up those kisses.

-You are an absolute joy and you light up my days, especially on those certain days when your sisters wake up with boxing gloves on and their competitiveness is a little too intense for my patience level 😉

You are such a good baby! Happy 9 months my darling!

PS – I’ve discovered a new effect on Picasa called “Cinemascope” that I’m obsessed with. I just need to get it out of my system and I’ll be back to the more “natural” looking photos.

  1. Marisa, You take such wonderfully expressive pictures of your kids and you have captured the essence our first boy in the family! I love the little dimple on his left cheek. What a wonderful balance for a boy-the rough and tumble, toughness complimented with a tender affectionate side! I can’t wait to see him develop into his own little person as the process is well under way! He is so lucky to have such a loving, caring, observant and attentive mommy!

  2. WOW, SOREN YOU ARE A VERY HANDSOME BABY ALMOST A TODDLER? YOU CERTAINLY LOOK LIKE ONE. I CAN SIMPLY STAY FOR MINUTES STARING AT YOUR BEAUTIFUL FACE AND EXPRESSION AND DO NOT WANT TO LEAVE THAT SCENE. YOU ARE SO UNIQUELY DIFFERENT FROM YOUR SISTERS IN PERSONALITY AND TEMPERAMENT. YOU ARE GOD’S CHILD AND I BELIEVE HE HAS A MISSION FOR YOU IN A VERY SPECIAL WAY.LOVE YOU LOTS! MIMI (MOM)

  3. I just want to bite those rolls!!!!! I love the one with him standing up and there are like 6 rolls on his thigh….. we will be sad to see those go Soren, but don’t you worry because Baby #4 will fill in for you while you are thinning out! 🙂 It is an honor and absolutely pleasure to be apart of your life Soren and watch as you grow and learn in this short little life of yours already. Your solemn ways and contemplative temperament tells me you are already reflecting on your adult life as a prominent philosopher, scholar and…. is that a priest I see in the future? 😉 I love you so much and am so proud of you already my little prince!!!!!
