Charlie is 9 months old today! I can hardly believe it. As a birthday present we got a nice dusting of crunchy, icy snow. Charlie has never been in snow before so he was very intrigued by it. We have his well baby appt Monday, so I won't have his stats till then. He is developing by leaps and bounds these days. He is trying more and more to talk, he can say "Mama" very clearly now. He is starting to wave "ByeBye" and "Hi" and is basically is happiest following Will around the house. He loves to climb the stairs as fast as possible, and spends most of the time standing, and has been caught a few times freestanding. He loves to play the drums on any flat surface and loves to jump up and down over and over. He loves his touch and feel books, and even knows where to touch on each page. His favorite song is the Chugginton Theme song, and when William sings the ABC's. We are slowly progressing on foods, but between his allergies and his lack of teeth, it is making it kinda tricky. He adores Rice Krispies and gets very excited when he sees the box. He is still a terrible sleeper and is still a frequent puker, but he is so darn cute! He loves his Mama, and loves to snuggle up with anyone who will hold him. I love the sense of completeness he has brought to our house. I am so glad we were granted the chance to do it all over again!
