Clyde At Nine Months

DSC 0272blog

Clyde is now nine months old!


This month Clyde weighed in at about 17 lbs at his office visit.  He is in 6-9 month clothes, but probably not for much longer.  H e is a size 3 shoe and a size 3 diaper now.

This last month has just been so fun - Clyde got both of his lower teeth in right around Thanksgiving, and his two upper teeth came in right at Christmas!  I think his little tooth grin is the cutest thing.  He isn't crawling on all fours yet, but he is starting to scoot crawl.  He has been sleeping through the night much more often, so I think we are finally past the eight month growth spurt!


His big thing this month is looking at people's teeth.  Anytime I pick him up he just grins at me and tries to touch my teeth.  I can't talk without him sticking his fingers in my mouth.  There have been times when he gets both his little pointer fingers hooked in my mouth, and he has such a serious look on his face that he reminds me of a little dentist!  You never know.

His laugh has become even more cute, if that's possible.  He has such a cute little belly laugh, and then he ends on a hiccup laugh, and I love it.  He laughs most when someone "surprises" him (he likes it best if he knows the "surprise" is coming.


Clyde has always hated being alone, and it is still that way - if he thinks everyone left the room, he gets upset.  He likes to see where everyone is.  He is thrilled when Gwen and Wyatt come over to play with him, and they are so good with him.  Clyde is really into his toys, and he loved all the new ones he got for his first Christmas!

He defnitely loves his Daddy, and we think he has already said his first words Daddy and dog.  They both sound like "dah", but with Derek he'll say "Dah, dah" or "Dah, dee".  He is always looking at either Derek or the dogs when he makes those noises, so I think it is intentional!  No "mama" yet, though I've been working overtime on it.  *sigh*

I am still his favorite person though - if he has a choice, he'll choose me to hold him, though he okay with other people too.  But if he can see me, he would rather have me holding him.  If I am gone during the day at work and he doesn't get some quality time with me before bed, he doesn't sleep well.  I think he fusses at night sometimes just because he wants me to come hang out with him.

I remember Wyatt and Gwen having stages where they wanted to be with me most, but Clyde's has definitely lasted the longest.  I have to say, I love it!  I love that he knows I'm his mama and wants to be with me.  It melts all those little places in my heart.  If he is my last baby, I am so glad that likes to hang out with me best, and I am going to enjoy every second of it - even the midnight seconds.

Baby Clyde,

What a cutie you are!  It's hard to even describe how adorable you are, and your little grins and giggles make my heart jump.  I love that you like to hang out with me, and I love what a cheerful little guy you are.  Lately when you are happy to see me, you give me your classic, four-toothed grin, and then you scrunch your nose.  Sometimes you smile and give me a little eyebrow raise, like we have some fun little secret between us.  And I get that little leap of joy somewhere inside.  I love you sweet boy.  I am so glad you are mine.

Love you always,

Mama

What a big boy he is :) I say 'momma' to Rebekah about a hundred times a day... But something tells me her first word is going to be da-da. She just lights up when she sees her daddy - it's so sweet! So funny about the teeth - maybe he will be a dentist :)

Julia still won't say 'mama' after a year, so I feel your pain! I can't believe he is already 9 months old!
