Hyrum has reached another milestone! He'll be 9 months tomorrow! I had to do this pic a little early... I took this before our trip so I wouldn't be so behind on life. Anyway.
NINE MONTHS! Really? That means we're 3/4 of the way to having a one year old.
I want to keep him a baby forever.
I superimposed the barbell because there's no way he would've cooperated with a similar prop. I don't mind doing it that way though- and anyway I'm trying to figure out how to keep these posts coming;) You all know I almost threw in the
towel blue blanket months ago on this project. He did make a perfect pose for what I was going for though! Thanks Hy!
At 9 months he:
-is standing. A few days after he turned 8 months (July 22nd) he started pulling up! That seems too early to me. I love it though!
-tears up the book shelf. He loves looking at (crumpling) the books! DVDs too.
-Has been enjoying finger foods the past couple months. Cheerios & sweet potato puffs. I even gave him some arrow root cookies (but the package said for 10+ months. Noticed that after, oh well!) One day he got into Brody's fishy crackers and he's been scouring the floors for them since.
-he's in a screaming phase. Ugh. Seriously embarrassing at church but some days aren't so bad. He puts both his hands out in front, hands in fists, and lets 'em loose. Hopefully this'll be a very very short phaze. My ears!
-has the cutest crawl! From any direction but especially from the back. He has gotten really fast on his hands and knees and I love watching his cute little diaper waddle all quick like
-takes two naps
-wakes up at 7am usually, in bed at 7:45ish.
-He has said "Hi" "ma ma" "da da" and others
-i'm seriously in awe at what a great little eater he is!
So this months pic was inspired by that outfit I found when I was swapping out old clothes and putting "9-12 month" clothes in his drawers. Totally reminds me of those oldtime-y "strong men". Like so:
