9 Months Old!

I can't believe my baby boy is 9 months old! Where have the months gone? 
 He is such a delight and still a very happy baby. He's getting even more playful and still loves to laugh with his daddy. 
 He's got his own inch-worm style crawl that he's been doing for over a month now. He kinda pushes up on his arms, gets his legs under him, and then flops on his belly forward. It's pretty funny to watch. 

He is pulling up on everything, and is pretty comfortable holding on with just one hand, but hasn't gotten balanced enough to stand without holding onto something. I'm glad for that at the moment - I'm not ready for him to be walking yet! 
 Caleb is very talkative when he's comfortable in his surroundings. His favorite thing to say is "da da da da da" but every now and then I can get him to say "ma ma ma ma." 

His 9 month check up was last week and he weighs 21 lbs - 75th percentile. 
 He's still got his sweet cheeks, but I feel like his face looks more and more like a little boy's every day.
He still loves to eat and goes back and forth between pureed foods and soft solids (green beans, cheese, rice, etc). He's still nursing and I feel pretty confident we'll make it to the one year mark, which has been my goal.

He's getting ready to switch daycares - he had been coming to work with me and staying in our on-sight daycare (so so thankful for that blessing), but it's closing down and he'll be transitioning to a daycare in Sylacauga soon.
Thank You, Lord, for the precious gift of my son. He is such a joy to us and I pray that we will honor You in the way we love and raise him. May You be glorified in our family.
