Nate turned 9 months old today, so I took his monthly picture with the bear. It was much harder this time…he kept crawling away before I could snap the picture. I ended up with a lot of shots that looked like this
I haven’t weighed him recently, or stood him up against the wall to get his height, but he goes to his checkup on Thursday, so I’ll have the statistics soon. He does have 4 teeth now, and the next two on top are about ready to emerge. He’s commando crawling everywhere and exploring everything, so baby-proofing has begun. He’s also gotten the hang of propelling himself along when he sits on his little car thing, and can even make slight steering adjustments when he runs into something. If I stand him up, he can hold on to the furniture and keep his balance, but hasn’t started to creep along yet.
