I am now officially crawling! It is so freeing to be able to go where I want when I want. You don’t know how confining it felt to have to wait until Mom or Dad picked me up or brought me a toy or a book. The only drawback is that now I can’t seem to sit still. Even in my crib at naptimes I find the need to crawl from one end of my crib to other just because I can. Pssst . . . don’t tell Mommy, but I’m even trying to stand up in my crib by using my crib railings for support. I can’t seem to reach the top bar though so I think they must have snuck in and lowered my mattress when I wasn’t looking.
I also was declared to be in good health at my 9 month checkup. Dad was gunnin’ for me being 21 lbs. but Mom knew I wouldn’t be anywhere near that. She calls me her little string bean, which I love on most days. I ended up being 18 lbs. 5 oz. and 28 1/2 inches long. Well, I’ve got places to get to, so . . .
Until next time . . .
