Simon is 9 months old

Dear Simon,
My little nine month old boy! We have had a very fun month.
We went to visit our good friends the Kelleys in Dallas for the weekend. It was a great trip and you were such a good boy on the plane. Ethan was born two weeks before you so it was great to see you interacting. You played with toys (although you both had some issues with sharing......we'll have to work on that). Ethan even let you borrow his car. We went to Fort Worth for the day where you saw some real cowboys and even got to ride a longhorn! And you both loved playing in the park and riding the baby swings. Special thanks to the Kelleys for hosting us. We can't wait to see you again soon!

We celebrated our first Valentine's Day.

You got your first tooth this month too! It is on the bottom in the front. It is just starting to get big enough to see in a picture so we'll try to get one soon! You are really feeling the pain from teething and we keep hoping more with pop through so it will be over.

In other news, you started crawling this month! It started with a slow scoot and now you are really moving. Just the other day I left the room for a minute and when I came back you had scooted to your toy basket to get some toys out.

Then I left again for another minute and I came back to find you had pulled yourself up! I can't believe how quickly you went from crawling to pulling yourself up. You were so proud! We have always suspected you would be an early walker because you love the walker so much and you practically run when we hold your arms. We have an exciting few months ahead.

It has been amazing to watch these big changes. Your are so excited to be doing more and moving around. We can't wait to watch those things happen, but it is bittersweet because our little baby is gone and you are turning into a little boy. And the most adorable little boy you are!
I love you with all of my heart, angel.



  1. Great looking hats Simon! You are quite the little urban cow boy. Your Mom is right you are growing up so fast. Every time I return from a trip you are a different baby. One thing never changes though, you are always the sweet, lovable, hug a bunch baby boy that I love so much! Happy nine months,

  2. Simon, Grandpa Joe & I smiled to see you in that cowboy hat! You are a handsome guy!
    You are such a big boy now, standing on your own. You look so happy & busy.
    Lots of love, Grandma Lin

  3. Simon, You are growing up too fast. Slow down! Where are you in such a hurry to get to? Well I guess you have been on a lot of adventures & you have to keep up with your big cousins. Love you!!

  4. OMG - that cowboy hat. So cute and such a good sport to put up with all the pictures we put those boys through. :)
