Monster is 9 months old today!
We celebrated the day by getting family pictures taken at Target, paying our respects at a funeral home (another “first” milestone Monster has reached before many of his peers – we’re totally going to win “parents of the year” this year ;)), and getting a Christmas tree.
Tonight was P’s company Christmas dinner, so Auntie B watched him, while holding an “Ugly Sweater Party” at the same time. Needless to say, we had to leave early to come pick Monster up – he missed his Daddy and Mommy! 🙂 We’re told he serenaded Auntie B for an hour straight. So for all your cry it out advocates….it doesn’t work for every baby, haha. Monster’s got a lot of stamina and is very persistent. Hopefully these traits will pay dividends when he is older. But for now, it can be rather frustrating. It’s okay, we love him anyway.
I had my camera with me the whole day, but somehow didn’t manage to take a single photo (again). Here’s the only photo we got from all of our excursions today.
