Happy 9th Month, Dade!

Look at you, you little monster!  You look like you're ready to devour that cake soon!

And you make us beam with pride. At 9 months, you can:

- pull up to standing position from sitting
- stand alone momentarily (3 seconds max)
- push up to a sitting position when lying down
- walk while holding on to furniture
- pokes with finger at small things
- drop objects then look for them

- use thumb and finger pincer grasp to pick things up (he can carry a weight of 500 grams!)
- clap and bang objects together
- understand the word no (but usually doesn’t obey it)

- identify self in a mirror
- drink from a cup independently (thanks to Munchkin sippy cups!)

- recognizes/responds to his name, names of familiar objects
- deliberately imitate sounds made by a parent
- combine syllables into word like sounds
- say one word other than dada (he can say "A", and his name, Dade)

Happy 9th month, our dear son!  We love you soooo much!!

Happy 9th, Dade! Bilis na ah, lapit na 1st bday :)

Btw, I am interested to buy Dade's old shoes ... if you won't be keeping them. Sayang kasi if I buy pa brand new, they grow so fast! And they don't use it for walking pa naman, so slightly used pa. Hehehe! Let me know na lang. :)

hi jacqui,
thank you!
i don't think the shoes will fit Migo. 3-6 months yang pair na yan. maliit talaga feet ni Dade eh. by the time we go home, di na siguro kasya kay Migo.
