graham: eight and nine months

eight months

nine months

Combining eight and nine months because, let's face it, I got too far behind and can't remember what happened when. But Graham, you just turned nine months old and it's hard for this mama and daddy to embrace that fact. It also means that in just three short months you'll be a year old. And that? Well that's just not acceptable. Ha!

You are scootin' around like a mad man. You are our first non-crawler. You army crawl and do this other cute little scooting thing on your hiney. It's hilarious and adorable all at once. But you get places and I think that's all that matters. You have also started pulling up on things. You only get to one knee, but that's ok. Because of this we already had to lower your mattress. I wasn't too keen on the thought of you pulling yourself over the edge of your crib.

Graham, you are into everything. The fireplace. Pulling on plugs. The kitchen. All places that your older brothers never got into. For this reason alone I think that daddy and I are going to be in for a treat with you.

You still have no teeth. And now I'm starting to wonder if you ever will. We still give you small pieces of food and you "chew" them like you have a mouth full of teeth. Should you never get teeth, I think you'll be ok.

You are still nursing about seven times a day. And for the most part, I get two nice long naps out of you in the morning and the afternoon. You like to take a short cat nap before dinner most nights while I'm cooking dinner; I really like that.

You've had an ear infections for what seems six weeks straight. And that might not be an exaggeration. We found out you were allergic to the penicillin family just like Sawyer. When you broke out in hives while on antibiotics, we knew not to panic since we'd seen it before. Dr. C has thrown in the towel and you'll be getting tubes sometime soon.

You are your brothers have the most fun relationship. It'll be interesting to see how that continues to develop. For now? They light up your life for sure.

Likes: eating, your brothers, baths (when you get them #thirdchild), long walks in the stroller
Dislikes: ear infections, diaper changes, being hungry, being alone
