It’s only days before Hunter is going to be 10 months!! Figured, I should post his 9 month blurp before then (just following the same “behind” pattern for every other month *face palm*).
It’s been a HOT month! I don’t think there was one full day this entire month that I kept my clothes on all day … it was awesome! And, I got my taste of “the river” (as my big brother Judah calls it). Not only did I get to feel the cool water on my feet (almost every day!), but also, I lapped up as much as I could into my mouth. The river’s got to be one of my favorite things now, for sure.
This month, I also figured out why Judah loves to play with trucks & BALLS. Sometimes, he even plays them with me! And, I’m catching on why he loves food so much too. We went to my very first stampede breakfast and I got to eat some pancakes – delicious! I’m going to stick close to my big brother for more tips like these … he knows what/where the good stuff is at.
I am officially not the youngest cousin (on one side of the family) anymore. Once my new baby boy cousin, Jaeger, can walk (or walk on furniture like I now do!!), we are going to take this town for a ride! I just know we are going to be the best of buds and can’t wait until we can play together. Because he was born, we got to spend a lot more time with our cousins this month too. They even slept over!
Speaking of sleep, before we went on our big camping trip, mama was so proud of the progression of my sleep. She would tell e v e r y o n e how I was now sleeping through the night and I loved getting that praise. But sleeping in that tent trailer was hard, and some of those habits didn’t really stick as a result. I’m still working to get back to the same place, but still doing pretty good only waking once in the middle of the night (instead of the averaged 5x before).
As for out big camping trip, it was AMAZING! Both mama and papa have said it, they think I was born to be outside. To feel the dirt in my fingers (and mouth), have the sap in my hair, rocks in my hands and diaper … is, well, awesome. The sand on the beach was tasty, our campsite dirt floor, and moss and rocks on the forest floor also tasty. Being outside, I’d never go hungry! We did a lot of bike riding too, so Judah and I got a lot of time to spend with each other in the bike trailer. Sometimes, giggling our heads off, other times, not breathing cuz papa was making us fly!
Loving the life of a 9 month old!
