9 months old today.
This time last year I had a huge bump and was waddling about. I couldn't even bend down to tie my own shoes and we were wondering if you were going to be a girl or a boy.
Now you are here and a huge part of our family, it feels like you've been around for so much longer.
Always smiling and laughing, you are such a great little person and your cheeky personality is really starting to shine through.
Since last month we now have six whole teeth which are beautiful, crispy white and extremely sharp.
I am constantly impressed with you and how you are progressing. Everybody comments on how good you are when we are out and about.
You love being chatted to and sometimes pretend to be shy and hide away when strangers speak to you.
You move with great speed and accuracy much to the dismay of our cat Roxy, who lost a handful of fur last week and got a shock when you grabbed his tail.
You are now starting to pull yourself up and are determined to stand on your own. Crawling about the floor is just the best fun.
You are happiest when you are sitting on your own and can move about by yourself. I don't think it will be long until you are walking or running rather about the kitchen.
I can't wait.
