Happy 9 month birthday Holden!!

Happy 9 month birthday Holden! It is so weird writing this post because I feel like you just turned 8 months old yesterday! These past few months have deff been the fastest so far! So here is a little of what you are up to at nine months:
This is what you think about being 9 months! I tried as hard as I could and most of the pictures were like this or him him eating the grass. Yes, you heard me correctly. He was more interested in eating the grass than anything else. Awesome.

You are now crawling and you are EVERYWHERE!! I just ordered our new baby gates last night and can not wait for them to get here! You haven't found the stairs yet somehow but I know it is coming! And you are pulling up and walking along everything as well!
You are still wearing size 3 diapers and you are wearing all kinds of sizes when it comes to clothes. Shorts still work best in 0-3 or 3-6 but pants on the other hand, oh boy. I have been keeping you in pants everyday because you have been getting horrible carpet burn on your legs and feet and the only size that fits your legs is 6-12 and they fall off of you. Shirt size or onesie you wear mostly 6-12/ 12 month but this shirt you have on was 18 month and lenght wise it is great but the sleeves are super long.
Tomorrow you go for your 9 month check up and I can't wait to see how big you are getting!
You sleep every night from about 8ish to about 6:45ish if we have to go to work and usually 7:30 on Sunday's. {Somehow he know to sleep in on Sundays} And you take about 3 or 4 hour+ naps a day.
Food wise, you aren't so crazy about it most days. Some days I will get you to take between 3-5 oz four times a day and three meals and other days you won't eat hardly anything. And that it how it is lately. I just never know what to expect. {On the other hand you can throw back some McDonald's chicken nuggets like no body's business.... not that you have tried them or anything : ) }
You are such a happy baby 99% of the time. But when you get tired some days you just loose it.

You still love Elmo and when you heard his voice on TV you stop whatever you are dong to look and just smile and laugh!
You love to dance and you just showed Nana the moves you have earlier tonight. It was the funniest thing ever!
You were not happy at this point but I wanted to get a picture of your guitar on your shirt.

Such a sweet boy!
Your eyes change everyday now so I don't have a clue what color they are going to be! Sometimes they are blue and others they are green or hazel.
You love to be held {by anyone} but are a big time Momma's boy. And I do have to admit that I love it : )
You still love the water and taking baths.
Holden, I can not even begin to tell you how amazing the past 9 months have been! You bring so much love and laughter to our house and whole family. I love you more than you will ever know and tell you many times a day. You are just perfect and I am so glad that you are mine! I love you sweet boy!

For the rugburns, get babylegs - they can be worn with shorts and are easy to put on and take off.
