Hudson, you are growing so fast! You are 9 months old today!
Here you are at 9 months old:

You weigh 18lbs 14 1/2oz (25%)
You are 28 1/2 inches long (64%)

Head circumference: 18 1/4 (81%)

You wear size 6-12 month clothes and size 3 diapers.

You are a VERY good eater! You have tried tons of food and are learning to eat finger foods. You will try anything and don't seem to be picky! You still drink bottles 5 or 6 times a day (depending on your sleep schedule) and you drink juice and water from a sippy cup. You are still learning about how to use a cup, but you really like it!

Your sleeping habits aren't any better, although last night we got a taste of the schedule you used to have. I'm not sure if it will stick around or not. You take at least two naps everyday, but they range from 20 minutes to 2 hours. I am just facing the fact that you probably won't ever be a good sleeper, and we will just deal with it.

You have 7 teeth! Four on top and three on bottom! You love to use your teeth to bite and chew on everything!

You have learned how to give "sugars" which means you open your mouth real wide and lean in and get a kiss. It's so sweet!

You are starting to babble so much! Just over the last week or so I can't believe how much more you are talking. You are working on mama and dada and occasionally we get what sounds like baba or bye bye. You are still learning to associate these words, but it sure is cute to hear you say them.

You are crawling EVERYWHERE! Your favorite places to crawl are to the dog bed, the dog kennel, and the dog bowls. You just adore those dogs and you love to play in the kitchen and bang the dog bowls and any other dishes on the floor.

You are pulling up on everything and scooting side to side. You are still really wobbly, but love to walk while holding our hands. I can only imagine what it will be like when you take off.

You now ride in a "big boy" carseat and love it! You pretty much think you are big stuff in such a big carseat!

You are overall such a happy baby. We love you so much and we love watching how you change everyday. It amazes me that not too long ago you were just a little guy in my arms who couldn't get anywhere and now you are all on your own. You are independent and stubborn, but we love your sweet smiles and silly laughs. You are just loveable!
A few outtakes for your enjoyment:
There is never a dull moment around here!
