"Baby, baby, I'm taken with the notion to love you with the sweetest of devotion..."

Note: I was feeling horrible yesterday with stomach cramps! Otherwise, I would have written this post yesterday!

Dear PJ,

Oh my goodness, my dear, sweet baby Boy! You turned 9 months old yesterday!

This past month has brought the most changes, all of them coming fast and furious! You have recovered fully and beautifully from your surgery! You started out the month not yet crawling and now? You're crawling, standing, dancing, jumping and turning (while holding on, not completely on your own yet!)! The days of putting you down someplace and finding you still in that same place are officially gone! When you greet me in the morning, your little face peeks out at me from over your crib rail, instead of looking up at me from your bed!

You have also officially given up on pureed foods! I can still get you to eat fruit purees and rice cereal, but veggies and "dinner" foods? Fuhgeddaboudit! Instead, you happily nomnomnom on peas, green beans,  carrots, grapes, apples, chicken, noodles, bagels and potato, cut up into baby-sized bits but BIG PEOPLE FOOD nonetheless!

You are very into your toys, and can play with them for hours! Your favorite is your Sing Along Stage- you love to dance and sing to yourself in the mirror ("bop bop bop!")! You also love your Sesame Street radio and the remote control that Mandy and Taylor gave you (it's a real remote, by the way! He's obsessed with them and my friends had an extra!)! And your love affair with your Exersaucer continues!

PJ, you're personality is shining through more and more every day! You are such a smiley little guy, and you love your friends and family so much! You especially light up when you see your cousins, which makes your Mama so happy! You seems to love everybody (even Gordie!!!) and everybody just loves you back! You are a very, very lucky little boy in that sense, and your Mama and Daddy are so happy that your life is filled with such wonderful people!

All of that said, and no offense, but you still nap like crap! :-)

We can't believe nine months has gone by, and we have loved you for every second of it, and will love you for every second of your life after! What do we tell you all the time? That you are the very best Boy-Boy in the whole world and your Mama and Daddy love you so much!

Bring it on, 9th month! Can't wait to see what's in store!

With our love,
Mama and Daddy
