I had my nine month check up on Tuesday and it went well. I weighed 17 pounds, 3 ounces and was 27 inches long. I'm staying about the same on my growth curves so Dr. A didn't give Mama any grief.
I can now climb stairs. Everyone was impressed with my speed on Monday night at Nana and Papa's house. I don't attempt the stairs at home because they're bigger and scarier.
I'm still working on teeth. My top two are really out, but there's another that wants to break through up there also. I sure look different with my pearly whites.

My sleep has been just as unpredictable as always. Some days I take one long nap. Most days I take two medium naps. One day in the last week, I took three naps. I get up once in the night, but it's anywhere from 1-7am. I'm up for the day between 6 and 9am. I really make it difficult to make specific plans. Mina is still sleeping from about 1:30-4:30 most afternoons so we're shut-ins. At least we can go outside and hang out while Mina sleeps the day away.
I'm also learning to stand on my own. Daddy gets me standing up and then he lets go. I can stay up for a second. Mama and Daddy want me to learn to walk because they're sick of the human vacuum stage. I eat everything off the ground. Yum.

Mama has promised me that she'll take me to Chicago to go shopping for prom dresses when I'm in high school to make up for Mina's Yo Gabba Gabba trip. Sweet.

My fourth tooth has come in for those wondering. I'm getting better at cruising and holding onto things with only one hand. There have been a couple of brief episodes of almost standing unsupported. I even try to stand up from sitting without pulling up on anything. I can get up on my knees so far. I climbed up one stair today for the first time. I've learned to growl and grind my teeth. I love to chew on the handle to the freezer (on the bottom of the fridge). I'm eating more adventurous of food - cheese, meat, yogurt. I also figured out how to get water from a sippy. I continue to be on either side of the spectrum at most times - either hilariously happy or pitifully distraught. At least I can change from one to the other quickly?!
