Dear Cooper

Welcome to 9 months old sweetheart! This post is a few days late due to some picture uploading issues, but the picture was taken on your 9 month birthday.

At your well baby check up you were in "perfect" condition by the doctor's standards. You are 28 inches long and weigh 21.6 pounds. You are in 9 or 12 month clothes depending on how they are made.

This month has brought a lot of changes around our house. You have started crawling and are getting faster by the day! Nothing is safe anymore! We have put up a baby gate to block Colby's room so you don't get a hold of any toys that might choke you. Your brother has gotten so good at finding toys that aren't for babies and putting them away! We have also been busy covering outlets and fixing cabinet doors so you can't get in.

You have a tendency to get into places that you can't figure out how to get out of. Just this week you got stuck behind a door and under the bed.

You have also pulled up a couple of times. Each time you do I have to fight the urge to push you back down because I am NOT ready for you to walk! When babies start walking I feel like they aren't babies anymore so I am not looking forward to that milestone at all!

You have started to show a preference for who is holding you and I am excited to say it's me. When people you don't know are around you get the tiniest bit shy for the first few minutes, but then you are all stares and smiles with them.

Your jabbering a lot now and have added a new sound....."Uh oh!" is echoed through the house a thousand times a day. Anytime you drop something or want attention that is your call now. There is a song out now by Sugarland that is called "Stuck Like Glue" and in the chorus they say "Uh oh." Many times when you say it Colby will start singing that song and we all (you included) will dance around. It's a priceless moment!

Your other favorite thing to do is kiss! You are such a little lover! You plant big old slobbery kisses on anyone who is willing to take one and you love to kiss the baby you see in the mirror. It is so sweet!

We enjoy every moment with you and love you more and more each day. Thank you for being such a blessing to all of us. We love you Cooper!
