9 Months

I feel like I was just writing last months post. (And maybe I was a couple weeks late writing your 8 month post...)

- Your first two teeth popped up this month. Your bottom two, the left one came in first and then a few days later the right one started coming in. You have such a cute smile with your two little teeth.

- You started biting and for a day Mom didn't think she was going to nurse you anymore.
- One day Mom found you sitting up in your crib. You know can go from laying down, to sitting up all by yourself.
- Crawling backwards is your form of transportation,  you also can move from side to side, but no regular crawling yet.
- You are scared of the vacuum, even if you just see it in the living room not going, you freak out.
- When you are happy, you scream to let everyone know.
- You also pant like a dog
- Uncle Dan taught you to spit.
- When you want extra attention, you start pretend coughing.
- You started having stranger anxiety, Grandpa Hales came over and you cried, twice.
- Sleeping has been amazing. You usually go to bed around 8, and sleep 11 - 12 hours.
- Celebrated the 24th of July in Mapleton like Mom did when she was a kid.

- Went to your first Rodeo.
- Celebrated Olivia Burr's 1st birthday, it was a Minnie Mouse party.
- Met your twin cousin Mia. Mom's cousin Kellie had baby Mia the same day as you, you are only a few hours apart.

- Attended the Hales family reunion in Logan, Utah and Preston, Idaho.
- Went to the Clarksdale Pageant.
- Started waving
- Love to eat anything that Mom and Dad are eating. Your favorites this month were grapes, tomatoes,
 strawberries, pasta, bread, and chicken. You usually eat one container of baby food a day and then eat what Mom and Dad are eating at other meals.
- You wear size 3 diapers.
- Wear 6 - 9 month clothes.
- You weighed 17.2 pounds when we weighed you on August 10th.
