Happy August, everyone! It is officially my birthday month and as of tomorrow, my birthday week! It’s so hard to believe that my little monkey was 9 months last week. I seriously can’t believe that we will be celebrating his birthday in less than 3 months. I want him to make like a lost boy and never grow up, you know? Unfortunately, that’s impossible. I have to face the fact that my itty bitty isn’t so itty anymore.
Hampton, I took you to the doctor on your 9 month birthday. You weighed 19 lbs. 7 oz. and were 29 inches long. You are standing for a few seconds at a time now and walking all around our coffee table. I feel like it will be any day now, and I am SO not ready for you to walk. You’ve started climbing everything and you did a squat the other day that most crossfitters would be proud of. You’re cutting your third tooth. You are still wearing size 3 diapers and starting to wear more size 12 month clothes. You are sleeping through the night again (hallelujah)! You have started eating a little bit of table food but not much because you still don’t have many teeth. You still love Thomas the Train and The Cat in the Hat. You love to read your books and pull them all off of your shelf. You have the hardiest chuckle and you make us smile every day. You are my everything. I love you, little prince.
