Happy 9 Months Brighton Lee!

I'm a little late on posting Brighton's 8 month photos, but as of December 27th, Brighton is 9 months old. This is a collage from the time he was 8 months old. You can click on the collage to see the photos bigger. And for family wanting to print any of them, you know where to find me for the full resolution shots.

This month, Brighton grew in his 3rd and 4th tooth. He was grinding them together for a while. Thank goodness the grinding stopped once they were fully in--it was HORRID sounding! He began talking even more to us. He's still cruising easily and we've just recently noticed him letting go of things and standing unassisted for just a few moments. Oh, and his crawl is still hilarious. He crawls with his left knee and his right foot. His hair is now long enough to see little curls on the ends and it's no longer stark blond--it's now strawberry blond, like Brandon's.

Brighton sounds like he's saying, "Hey!" a lot lately, but it's said without the /h/ sound. All day he experiments with different sounds. We're always shocked at his attempts to communicate. He has a hilarious fake cry--TOTALLY fake. We can't help but laugh at it just because it's too cute. He's also pointing to his mouth when we eat--letting us know he's wanting something that we're eating (he's still 100% breastfed and thriving). I've caught him with pieces of his siblings sandwich in his hand and mouth, so he at least knows a little bit of what he's missing.

He LOVES to play with cars. I mean, he really plays with them rolling them all around. And he also likes to throw things. Anything.

This lil' guy is still the gigglies baby we've had. People comment on how joyful he is all the time. When I wake him up from nap time and bring him downstairs, as soon as he sees his siblings he immediately begins kicking viciously with a HUGE grin on his face (often accompanied by a shrill, happy scream). He also goes CRAZY when daddy comes home from work.

We've been SO blessed to have such a healthy baby. He's not yet been sick even once. WOW!

Happy 9 months, Brighton! Look forward to a new set of shots on January 27th! And I should have some Christmas & New Year family shots up in the next couple days, too. It's good to be back!

I love his smile.

I love his 4 little teeth.

I love his laugh!

I love how he wiggles his toes.

I love remembering how the light of the fire danced across his precious face, as I sat in the rocker with him late one night watching him sleep.
