9 months

***We interrupt this possible-blogging-hiatus to bring you my sweet little angel-man's 9 month update!***

Dear Dylan,

Today you are 9 months old. Good heavens, son! Time just will NOT slow down for anything! What have you been up to this month?

~You are wearing 6-9 month clothes and size 3 diapers.

~Not sure on your weight/height because you haven't been back to the doctor yet (loving this stretch of no-doctor-ness). You were supposed to have an EGD done twice this month, and both times it got postponed (once by me, once by them). Supposedly you're supposed to have it next month now, but insurance is playing a fun game called "let's don't pay for anything because we think Dylan had insurance before this insurance, even though he really didn't," so we will probably have to postpone again until that's all taken care of.

~You're still working on the prop-sitting, which you're totally not a fan of. Your new OT also has you picking up toys from the ground and bringing them up, which is new for you (unless YOU feel like doing it, of course)!

~You've acquired the loudest, fakest cry ever, which you employed the ENTIRE time the new OT was at our house last time. It wasn't pretty.

~You still do tons of babbling, but still no "mama"... every time I ask you if you can say "mama," you give me the most ornery grin you can muster, like "Oh, you'd like that, wouldn't you? Ain't happenin'."

~Grandma is determined to teach you Korean words, which I think is awesome.

~You still love going to visit your grandma every day, and she loves it when you and brother show up!

~Speaking of brother, you just love him... you love to watch him... but you're slowly but surely starting to figure out that if you fuss while brother's around, brother tends to get in trouble. I have a feeling you're going to be a turkey! A lovable, huggable, kissable, ORNERY turkey!!

~You (and brother, of course) continue to be the love of our lives.

Amy, Dylan is adorable. I read your kind comment on my daughter Kelle's blog and have to remind you--my mantra in this new journey with Ds we are all on has been, "Expect much but accept all." There are no stars given for speed in development...I tell Nella, "If you don't walk until you're two, that's OK, I'll wait for you!" We have a lifetime to enjoy our children--these special children might just be like the dessert we enjoy slowly. Again, Dylan is a doll!
