Happy 9 Month Birthday (a day late)

In the last 9 months, you were born, you learned to coo, learned how to smile, laugh, roll over, sit up, crawl (sort of), say ‘dada’, stand up, eat solid food (sort of), turn old ladies into mush, manipulate mommy in any way you want, chase the doggy, play ball, play peak a boo, fake cry to get out of your crib, get mommy out of stores quickly, yell at the top of your lungs – while also laughing, escape from your stroller, walk (while holding something), and get daddy to sing baby songs.

You have learned how to go from innocent, sweet, smiley, angel baby to fire-spitting devil child in less than 6 seconds and you’re not afraid to use this to get what you feel that you need. And I say – I hope that you always keep that side of you. There will be times in your life that you need a side-a-crazy. You will meet people in your life that will tell you that you shouldn’t try for the world…and I say – don’t listen to them. Darwinism should have eliminated those people – and you come from a long line of soap-box-standin’ idealist…so you just go for whatever it is that you want…and know that mommy and daddy have your back.

You have done more in 9 months than anyone I know. You are quite an amazing little man…and mommy and daddy love you so much.

Happy 9 month birthday!
