Finn at 9 months

During Finn’s 9th month he still struggled with sickness and allergies which wreaked havoc on his sleep at night. Lots of congestion and coughing would wake him up many times a night. Allergies in the winter in Texas are no joke. They hit Drew hard, and we’re learning that they hit Finn hard too. He also got two more teeth, which weren’t fun either. And he sure likes to grind them together!

But in between all the not-so-fun stuff, Finn learned to wave, which is adorable. He eats any puree I feed him, but isn’t into finger foods just yet. He is very close to crawling – he’ll move any which way except forward. He likes to lunge from sitting to his belly to reach something, turn in circles, scoot backwards, and then whine for help. He can push back up to sitting and pull up to his knees. He sleeps on his belly about half the time now.

He chats a lot and grunts to say hi. He also likes to smack his lips, blow raspberries, give a big toothy wide grin and slap his belly when he’s excited (I guess it’s his form of clapping.) And when he’s not moving and grooving, he’s the sweetest little cuddler.

This month he celebrated his first Thanksgiving with a visit from Gram and Toddy (who took some of these pictures.)

He also had his first sink bath and was as excited about it as Harper was at that age.
