Carson is Nine Months Old

My little man turned nine months old today. I can't believe how fast time has gone by since he was born. The planner in me is already starting to think about his first birthday.

Carson can get to where he wants by rolling around. He is beginning to do a military crawl to inch forward, but he doesn't get very far. I'm glad he's not very mobile yet because it makes it easier to be out at the beach with him and Emilia.

Carson's second bottom tooth came through over the last month. I can tell when he's teething because he's a little fussy and has a temperature. He's still a really easy going baby who, for the most part, likes to sit and observe things and people.
He is still fascinated by hair and LOVES to pull on it - even his own. In fact, on several occasions, I've seen him suck on his thumb and twirl his hair while trying to fall asleep.

Carson enjoys eating sand. I've given up trying to keep it out of his mouth, it's simply impossible to keep sand out. I just make sure to choose beaches with fine, clean sand.
He also enjoys riding on top of the boogie board and reaching over the sides to splash the water.

His favorite baby food is meat - chicken, ham, turkey or beef. He's eating a lot more table foods and is willing to eat almost anything he's given.
I love my special little man. His smiles brighten up my day. I feel blessed to be able to spend so much time with him and my princess Emilia.
