I can't believe it. My sweetest little Odin, you are 9 months old today.

You are such a sweetie. You give high fives and blow little kisses. You suck your cheeks in so deep into your mouth that you look like a little goldfish gasping for air.

You love to unpack cupboards and watch television with your mouth wide open. Granny Gladys tells me you LOVE to watch Barney (eek!).

You also love to feed yourself. You have discovered it's quite funny when you spit out your food. You love to finger paint once you've spat out your meal. Your best friend Lily also enjoys when you eat because there's always a fountain of food raining down on her. You especially love tomatoes and baby marrows. Another favorite of yours is when we give you a large piece of biltong to 'gum' on (you don't have any teethies yet). 

You're not crawling yet, however you love to stand. You get quite upset when we want to make you sit down. You love when we hold on to your little arms so you can walk around. It is the cutest thing! You take such b-i-g steps with such purpose. 

You sleep in between daddy and I at night. At first it was because we said this winter was too cold for you to sleep on your own. At the moment, I'm starting to think we put you in our bed so we can get to see and spend a little more time with you. You have developed such a charming little personality and we miss you when we're not with you. 

You are the happiest giggling little boy. Your laugh is the best sound in the world!

We love you so much. You are SUCH a delight!

P.S. See month 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 here.
