Grant is already 9 months old! It is crazy how the time flies now. The first few months were slow, but now the time just flies by. He is getting really close to walking. He pulls himself up all the time cruises around the furniture. We even got him a walker that he really quickly picked up on. He does however walk it into a corner or a wall and gets bored with it. However, if we had it on a track that went in a circle he would play with it all day. He’s talking a lot and seems to use Mama and Dada correctly. Although he usually uses mama in a whiney tone, but he does want me when he says it.
He has definitely gotten into his “stranger danger” phase and doesn’t like new people. He doesn’t like some people who he does know. When people go to hold him and hold out their hands he will curl into me. He also does not like being away from home. Home is comfortable for him so he’s usually happy when he’s home.
He is constantly on the move and cannot hold still. Especially when I am changing his diaper. He loves to move and turn over and grab at things he’s not supposed to grab. I think he thinks a game because he will hold still like he’s getting ready to pounce, give me a big grin and as fast as his body can move will turn over (pounce). It is funny even though it infuriates me to no end.
