I’ve had so many people, mostly parents, tell me not to blink or my son would be starting kindgergarten or starting high school. While of course the time doesn’t fly by that quickly, tomorrow our son will be a whole year old. Even with a year of memories, drawers full of clothes, new products and toys, and a phone crammed with literally thousands and thousands of photos, it’s still so amazing that he’s about to hit this milestone birthday.

I just cannot believe how time is passing for our son. While people who see him every week keep remarking on how big he’s getting, it still seems unreal to me how he’s growing and changing. This description cracks me up as we’ve had to say no to him a lot. He really enjoys going to things he shouldn’t including the cat’s toys, the clear panel on the under television case (most likely attracted by his reflection), the blinds, and more, he’s great at finding things he should stay away from – perhaps that’s part of their appeal that they are forbidden.

One of the most amazing parts of watching a baby grow and develop has been hearing the bits of words Williams has said. His first was dadada then bababa. For this reason dada (dad/daddy) and baba (bottle) have been our prediction for what his first true word will be.

How could it be that so much time has gone by? I’m so amazed by the fact that William grows up and changes before our eyes. The topic of memory, what he learns and retains at this age (and other ages) has always been one that’s fascinating to me.

Today in honor of William’s 9 month birthday, I did something I have rarely done, attempted a month shoot on the actual day he attained that many months. Matt warned me that he thought William wasn’t in the mood for it, yet I went ahead to try to take some pictures.

One of the questions I get most often about William is how he’s sleeping, in particular if he’s sleeping through the night. Sometimes he does, sometimes he does not. When he doesn’t it’s mostly just one wake up, which really isn’t that bad at all. Matt, William and I all enjoy that he’s able to get more uninterrupted sleep overall.

William once again is right on track according to these listings. There’s a few things we need to get him to stop doing, rolling when we change his diaper, and trying to grab at Inky, who we refer to as his fur sister, both of which he does quite often.

William is getting so alert and active. He loves to reach for thing, move about and twist and turn. While we have him on the changing table, he loves to move out of reach and turn over, while grabbing for anything in sight. While I’m too busy trying to change him, sometimes with Matt’s help, when this happens, this is definitely when we have to tell him no to squirming about so.

It always amazes me seeing how much William is growing and changing. In answer to the question below, while in some ways it seems real that he’s almost eight months old, in others it’s absolutely unbelievable. I’ve been trying to get him to learn to clap and play peek-a-boo, the former he has never done and the latter only one time, yet he already is pulling himself up by things to briefly stand.

I just don’t know where all the time is going. From fitting into our arms with room to spare to getting longer, stronger and more active, William seems to grow a bit more each and every day.
