Nine Months: Happy Birthday, Henry!

Dearest Henry,

This month was the first time when I sat back and thought, "The time is going too quickly! Please slow down!"

In three short months you are going to be a year old. You are growing so much every day. It's clear that you understand more and more of what we say and do. If your dad blows raspberries on my stomach and then tells you to do it, you will crawl over, lift my shirt, and blow raspberries to make me laugh. You like to chase and be chased.

You are also good at communicating that you don't want to stop eating grapes and cheese in order to drink water. You love eating! You can eat for 30 minutes straight!

You have also grown into a fantastic sleeper. You go to bed at 7:30pm and wake up around 6:45am. After you've gone to bed, it's common for your dad and I to look at pictures of you and talk about what a sweet boy you are.

You are becoming more and more verbal with each passing day. Your dad and I parrot your noises back to you, and you are very good at taking turns in the conversation.

We constantly tell you that we love you and that you're so cute. We also can't stop kissing your fat cheeks.

You bring so many smiles and laughs into our lives. We are so thankful for you.

With love...

P.S. With this month's picture, you were very intent on separating the stick from the fabric flag. Once you did that, then you wanted to put it in your mouth.
