9 Months

Today my sweet baby boy is 9 months old! I can't believe in 3 short months he will be turning a 1 year old! Where have the past nine months gone? They have literally flown by, but have been filled with so much joy. I feel so lucky to have such a sweet, beautiful, healthy baby boy.

A few things our 9 month old baby boy is doing now:
- Trying to crawl, more like moving like an inch worm, pretty hilarious
- Loving to eat, just like his daddy. Put some puffs or Baby Mum Mums in front of him and he is pretty darn happy
- Talking, well not really saying anything we can understand but he loves to babble. Especially when I am on the phone or we are in the car.
- Discovering his privates. Yes, much to my dismay he tries to grab his man parts everytime I change his diaper. This poses a real problem when its a number 2 diaper.
- Squirming everywhere! As soon as he is on the changing table he flips over! Its hard to get a diaper on this guy!

- Teething- he has six teeth, 3 on top and 3 on the bottom, with 2 more poking thru his gums. His outfits are constantly covered in drool.
- Cuddling, he loves giving hugs and resting his head on my shoulder- nothing sweeter!
- Trying to walk. He loves to hold your hands and have you walk around with him. He also stiffens his legs whenever I try to sit him down, this baby wants to stand up all the time!
- Loving Bath Time. He loves splashing in the water and playing with all his toys.

- Learning to pull himself up in his crib, already had to lower it once, looks like we might need to lower it again.

Sterling is such a blessing. Being a mother is by far the best thing I have ever done. With all this crawling, squirming and pulling up you can see things are just starting to get crazy in the Mason household.
Happy 9 month birthday Sterling, I love you so much!

Your little boy is so sweet! And yes, I love all of the boutiques here in Charlotte for little babies! I actually just went in to Fancy Pants today and got my younger daughter a pair of cute red shoes, while waiting to pick my other daughter up from preschool - what else should I do while wasting time - shop! Thanks for following!

Love Charleston! Actually went to a wedding at the Rice Mill about two weeks ago. Such a fun place!
