I'll stop now before this limb snaps and I fall face-first to the ground of motherhood. Fingers crossed I didn't just jinx myself and wake up tomorrow no longer in this phase...
Henry is happy! He's healthy! He sits on his own and OH MY how that made my life easier. Didn't know sitting was such a game changer for mommy, but it is. He's a big boy, thus isn't crawling or walking yet. Read: My life is still easy.
|Teaching Henry to pose for pictures. He only looks semi-annoyed.|
He waves to people and smiles and "talks" to them. He says "dada" and "hi" (with a wave! *heart melts*) but I don't think he knows what he's saying quite yet. Soon. He eats every veggie I put in front of him with vigor and will choke down fruit (he's seriously my mini-me. I hate fruit. That makes me love my little hommie that much more. We'll fight fruit together!)
We have fun together! We talk to each other! When he see's me, his face lights up and he puts his arms up for me to pick him up. The ladies at the gym daycare adore him. Strangers stop me when we're out to tell me how handsome he is, and how well behaved he is.
|Oh, just a nine month old picking up our lunch tab. So kind of him!|
Am I living in a dream world? I know this phase will end. At some point, he will become mobile and I'll have a whole new world of problems on my hands. But for now, for however long it will last, the livin' is easy. Henry is a joy. And I'm loving every second of it.

|He kisses me on the lips. Gosh, I love him.|
Ummmm, oooookkkkkk, I don't love every second. The kid is breaking in three more teeth and that's a bit rough. Screams, y'all, the kid screams in teething pain. My poor ears and his poor gums!
Did you think I'd seriously have an "all sunshine and rainbows" post?! Get serious, I'm not that kind of blogger. I live in the real world :)
