Justus Daniel @ Nine Months

Oh my little man. How I love you so.

So much personality these days. Sometimes it's just over-flowing. I love your silly grin. And the way you laugh and crawl away quickly when I say "no, no" as you're chewing the dog's bone. Anytime we start crawling towards you saying, "I'm going to get you!" you laugh and grin and take off crawling as fast as you can.

Just in the last few days I've noticed that you look more like a little boy and less like a baby. Your hair is starting to go down over your ears and your eyebrows but we sure don't want to cut it yet. Bath times are my favorite! You stand at the tub, watching the water so excitedly, and then play and splash contentedly for as long as I let you.

Playing together in the living room is so much fun: your Dad or I will just lay on the floor and you crawl over us again and again. You're learning that Mom is good for snuggles and Dad is good for crazy stunts (like touching the ceiling or flipping upside down while flying). Lots of babbling and "momomom" and "dadadadada" these days but I don't think it's directed as us yet; you're just practicing the sounds.

We love you, JD!
Bring on month #10 . . . it's just getting better and better.
