My son is 9 months old.
I spent this weekend trying to prepare for the holiday season and spending time with Orion and Seth. It was a pretty good weekend. We got some gifts bought for O on Sunday (man it's great that he's too little to know what is going on so he can go shopping with us and test out the presents in the store!!). I really still don't know exactly what I should be buying for him because, well, he's still little but he's so smart. Oh well, I'm sure he'll enjoy the wrapping paper and boxes more than most things we can buy him anyway. He is now officially 9 months old. I can't believe how much he has changed in the last few weeks even. This weekend he started clapping on his own. It is nearly silent, but it is still the cutest damn thing I think I have ever seen in my life. This afternoon is his 9 month Dr. appointment so we'll get to see his height and weight once again. I'm excited to see where he lands there. As far as I know the only shot he'll need is the booster for his flu shot, so that won't be so bad either. Other than that, everything else is been progressing quickly. He can easily pull himself up on everything, can stand on his own when he isn't thinking about it, will walk when holding your hands (although it is a bit stiff-legged and super funny looking), and can maneuver all over if he has something to hold him up. He walks in circles around the coffee table and couch, and is starting to walk behind his push toys. It's amazing to me. He blows my mind. So that's what is happening in our life at the moment. I will try to get an update on how the Dr. appointment went this evening. Have a great day!!
