9 Months!

Dear Miss Margot Pants,
On August 16th you turned 9 months old. You may note that today is August 30th and it has taken me two weeks to write your 9 month post. The thing is this...this milestone has been really hard for me. All of the sudden you are so big and such a grown up baby. Recently I packed away all of your 9 month clothes (tear) and the hardest thing was packing away all those sweet baby pajamas. Your 12 month pajamas are just different. They seem less like baby pajamas and more like toddler pajamas. They have rubber on the feet to help you walk. And something about those pajamas just sent me into a state about your quickly passing babyhood. It is so fun to watch you learn and grow but at the same time I know I will miss your little cuddly baby self. Such is life I suppose.
Well now that I have shared my crazy overemotional sentiments we can move on to what an exciting month you have had. Oh my goodness Miss Margot this has been such a fun month for you. In just one month you have started to move, filled your little mouth with teeth, started chomping away at all sorts of new foods and developed so much independence. At the beginning of the month you only had 3 teeth and now you have 8! Those teeth seem to have no problems tearing through all sorts of food. You love to eat especially when you can feed yourself.
You are a very happy and easy baby right now. Sure you don't like to be left alone and you have some serious separation anxiety, but generally you smile, laugh, and talk away. You like to be around people and especially love other babies and kids. You love to sing and play with your toys. And you especially seem to enjoy books this month. You sit with a stack of board books and entertain yourself for a good 20 minutes with turning the pages and looking at pictures. Daddy bought you a Margot phone which you LOVE. You also love Sophie, your owls and "special kitchen toys".
 While you still haven't crawled per say you are moving. You can easily move from sitting to crawling position and back. You can pull yourself up. You can scoot forward and backward and you have taken a few little crawl steps. I think in a matter of days you'll be booking it across the house no problem.
Perhaps one of the sweetest things about this month is that you have started to say ma ma and da da. I don't know that it's terribly in context but it's still so sweet to hear you talking away at us. You are cute, sweet and funny. You make us so happy and bring so much joy to everyone around you. We love our baby so much! Love Mommy
