9 months… 3/4 of a year!

As the hunt begins for a daycare provider, it’s becoming more and more real that Nate is almost one, and I will be heading back to work shortly.

Lately, the days are filled with lots of smiles with a very playful Nate speeding around on all fours. He didn’t grow in length this month, but it sure seems like his arms grew! Things that used to be safely out of reach are now all fair game and he wants EVERYTHING. Once he has it, he wants to eat it. I know they say everything goes in the mouth with babies, but for some reason the full extent of that didn’t resonate until Nate began putting ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING in his mouth; power cords, dog toys, shoes, books, door stops, BlackBerrys, tupperware… Needless to say everything in our house has a lovely layer of baby drool.

In the last week Nate’s found his voice, and by voice I mean volume. Just for the heck of it, he’ll scream as loud as possible and for some reason it seems to happen when Erik or I are holding him up by our ears. He’s making lots of new sounds, the most recent sounds like a revving engine which is pretty funny when we all get going.

I’m hoping these last three months are just as long as the first three months!


Here are the other months as well for your enjoyment.
