The Buggle Times: Month 9

Posted in Baby's First, Buggle Times, Motherhood, Parenting at 7:49 pm by Momma

Dearest Buggler Boy,

Today you turn nine months old. Another month that flew by before my eyes! It blows my mind to think I have a nine-month old son! Everyday that goes by the more grown up you get, you are becoming such a “little man guy!” With an amazing personality. This month you showed us your feisty side. Dad-Oh swears it comes from me, but I can name a few feisty relatives on his side too! Your name does mean, “Fiery one” so we were kinda asking for it there… 🙂

This was a big month developmentally! You are an absolute pro at climbing up in your crib. One night before tubby time Dad-Oh and I had you in there “exercising” and you must have went up and down over twenty times in less than a minute! You’ve learned how to let yourself down gently so you don’t bounce backward and smack your little noggin on the backside of the crib! A smart little cookie you are! Last night when you called for me for your middle of the night snack session I came in to your room to find you STANDING UP waiting for my arrival! Oh, dear!!! It has begun! We might be lowering the crib yet again sooner than later!

Stand Up!

You have on several occasions stood upright by yourself for several seconds at a time, but today you took three unassisted steps with your car-walker. We wish we had the camera handy but sadly it was not! You are mastering getting yourself into a sitting position from your back and tummy. You pull yourself up on everything you can find! People, couches, toys, Puppers, but your very favorite is your crib. Inside or outside it doesn’t matter!


Your diet has really expanded this month. We have added lots of new tastes and textures to your menu. You love fresh fruit! Watermelon, grapes, strawberries, and cantaloupe have been sampled. We tried fresh mango, but I don’t think it was ripe so I threw it out before you got to it–sorry! 😦 Surprisingly, you like plain cottage cheese. You didn’t mind the bumpy texture at all, just mashed it around, swallowed, and opened wide for more! Mashed potatoes are another big hit! French fries are our saving grace when we are out at a restaurant! As long as you have your “fry-fry” you’re good to go! A few weeks back Momma fixed you scrambled egg yolks (no white’s until you’re one–sorry!) and you about died and went to heaven! Well…What do you think?

Fun With Eggs!

We are happy to finally report that we will not be needing to fit you for infant dentures! Yes, we have visual evidence of one, potentially two pearly whites popping up on the bottom of your mouth. It’s still too early to capture on film, but I guarantee those little teethers will make their Internet debut very shortly! :mrgreen:

This video speaks for itself! You have mastered your walker! I think you could win the gold in the Alaska Baby Invitational! You’re totally independent at the gym now. Coming and going as you please. The only way we can coax you to do as we wish is to tempt you with the cell phone! Otherwise, you have places to go and people to see!

My little ladies man invited his first girl back to his crib–literally! An older girl even! Sorry Bud, Dad-Oh was not allowed to be alone in his room with the door closed with me until he was nearly 18, so we kept with the tradition and even paid close attention to all little hands and fingers!

Wanna Come Back To My Crib?

You love to play! You have really started understanding how to play with all your toys! You can throw all kinds of different balls, shockingly well! You rock your caterpillar all by yourself. You have even figured out how to push the tiny buttons inside the ball holes of your dinosaur to make it play music without pushing the ball through!

Rocking Piller

Tonka Anyone?

Dad-Oh and I are having so much fun with you now, not that we weren’t before. But now that you are older and receptive to your environment it’s a whole new world! The sporadic sunshine helps tremendously too! Sadly, in seventeen days the fishing season starts and Dad-Oh will be gone much more than we’d care to think about! 😥 Hopefully, things will go flawlessly and we will still be able to have lots of family time and enjoy your first summer together!

You have grown so much these last 30 days I can’t imagine what new things I will be writing about in another 30! My little Aidan Daidan Buggle’s you give me life, hope and have shown me a kind of love that is indescribable to anyone who is not a Momma! I love getting up each and everyday (and night) to your smiling face. I’m so lucky to be your Momma!

This Hat Again?

Bunches of Love,

    You have become such a little man, Happy Birthday to my little buggles!! We are going to have so much fun this summer. I love you sweetie!

    Big 9 months old wow where did the time go!!!

  2. laura said,

    Awww 🙂

    This is a fun age, isn’t it 🙂

    Do you keep as nice a baby book as you do a blog?

  3. Auntie Manda said,

    Too bad your 9 months of pregnancy didn’t go by as fast as the first 9 months of his life, huh? Would you quit letting him grow already?!?!?

    And Laura….even though I’ve yet to see the baby book, I can tell you that the answer to that question would be a big fat OF COURSE. She’s just a tad on the OCD side if you know what I mean. 😉

  4. Momma said,

    HEY! You’re too old 😯 to be blabbing all my neuroses over the Internet!

  5. laura said,

    In this area a bit of OCD is ok! I’m a slacker on the baby book, or any fill-in-the-blank memory book. Including my wedding memories book!
    So good job, Jenn 🙂 You know, I have to admit, as I was reading your lovely “Dearest Buggler Boy” post I was making a mental check list of what Deeder can or cannot do that Aidan does (evil me!). This month the boys are pretty close (except for the eggs, Deeder hasn’t tried them yet).
