Nine Months

More of a nine and a half month update...

My Dearest Carter,

Well what is there to say, other than I totally regret that bow situation... we've managed to grow and learn through another month, one month closer to being my 'not a baby - baby'. Because let's face it, you'll always be my baby. 

You're not quite walking on your own, you get so mad sometimes when you can't keep up with Reagan running up and down the hall. I thought for sure this would be the month that you would start. You love to get buck wild in your walker and stroll around holding our hands, and you have made so much improvement on free standing.

You LOVE music, and have started swaying, dancing and even your own kind of singing. It's the best! It really doesn't matter where the music is coming from, if you hear it you are a-bobbin-along!

Your Sister is truly your best friend. It just melts my heart to see you two play together, the way you look at her puts a smile on my face all day long. 

We might as well have named you Carter Mischievous Austin, because that's the name of your game. If it's a 'no-no' you're into it. Around here the old saying "if they're being quiet, they're getting into trouble" is definitely true with you!

You're completely off purees, you love yogurt and applesauce (which I still put in pouches) as well as anything we're eating. Graham crackers are your ultimate weakness, anytime I need to buy a few minutes that's where I go.

I've noticed this month that you use your left hand much more than your right when reaching for things and feeding yourself. I know it's too early to tell if you'll be a lefty - but that sure would be interesting! Time will tell.

You're such a good baby, always have been really. We really lucked out on getting you babe. You light up our lives everyday and are such an amazing addition to our little family. I have a feeling you will be keeping us on our toes in the years to come, and I can't wait!

I love you my sweet stinky girl.
