Farm Fresh

… Fresh on to the farm. Here is an occassional chronicle of a new family in a small town.

9 months

At nine months Porter, you are 19 lbs 2 oz, 29″ and a wonderful handful.  You are totally clued into snuggling and use my arm as a pillow at night to fall back asleep. We are starting you in the crib but eventually, we can’t resist.  Your feedings at night are spreading out- I think you only had two last night but admittedly, we obsess over your sleep schedule and feeding schedule. We’re trying to create a routine and gather the strength to put you in your own room. Of course it is 5 degrees right now so a good cuddle I think is in order.  You’re putting things in things, lifting up carpet corners, taking the dog lid off the can and you love to play chase. You’re a super fast crawler and are learning to “cruise”. Your new thing is waving hi and bye and have taken to practicing in the middle of the night. You prefer to feed yourself at the dinner table and can entertain yourself through an entire meal although your aim is not quite 100% yet. Your Gramma Joey watches you 2-3 times a week at her place and you love her and Archie. Gramma swann is dying to come over here for slumber parties and ice cream.  You are loved like crazy and you are so freaking cute, I often contemplate baby modeling.  My anguish of not working at a job is gone. I like being your mommy.  I think something is coming up around the corner but I’m not as worried about it anymore.  After all, I have a lot of crafts to make for the craft bazaar! Shrinky dinks and glitter eggs here we come!  You love people and especially love little kids. At Thorpsgiving you and Henrik were playing chase, you like to hug little people and your kisses are slobbery.  I imagine for Christmas you’ll like the boxes more then the toys! You’re the best!
