Jonathan - 9 Months

Again...another month has come and gone.  How is it that my little baby is now 9 months old?  Granted he still looks like he's maybe 6 or 7 months, but he's starting to act more and more his age. 

Just this past week he's shown signs that he'll be crawling soon.  Once he figures out the crawling thing I know life will never be the same again.  Now's when the real fun begins - training the baby. 

We're not into "baby-proofing" our house (except for dangerous things, of course) or moving the baby away from what they were told not to touch.  We "house-proof" our babies.  From a very early age babies can start learning self-control and learning to listen and obey mom and/or dad.  We've already seen Jonathan battle his will and learn to submit to our authority.  He's kinda cute as he decides if he's going to spit his food again or just eat it.  When he listens and obey he's praised by the whole family.  It's real good stuff.

Kudos to you both for "house-proofing"! It brings such peace in the long run. Your little guy is precious. Sure wish we lived next door as we would have so much to talk about and share. Not much schooling would get done, though! :) Karen B.
