Love Letter: Month Nine

Dear Keagan,

What a whirlwind of a month this has been! As predicted with the holidays approaching it has been just nuts in the house! Add into that the fact that you are mobile, and in a big, fast way mobile and let's just say Mommy is beat.

So yes, you're crawling. And not just GI Joe Army crawling. Nope, you are on the move. And into EVERYTHING. Nothing and nobody is safe in your path. For some reason you seem to be especially keen to get into Skittles bowl, a fact that she is not happy about in the least.

You had your first overnight without Mommy or Daddy last month. Grandma Janice watched you while we went to visit friends. Of course, you were an angel. You even slept until 8:30am (which, by the way, it would be nice if you ever wanted to do that for us...just sayin'.)

You got to hang out with the whole family and play with your cousins, Aunts and Uncles.

Psst...that isn't Daddy - that's Uncle Ryan. I can see why you may be confused though.

To end the month was your first Thanksgiving. And in true Mommy fashion I didn't take one darn picture. Figures too because you had the, manliest onesie with a tie on. So cute. You also got to spend time with your Grandma Mimi, Grandpa Joe and Cousin Jonnie who came to celebrate Thanksgiving with Great Grandma Ginger and Great Grandpa Tony! Let me tell ya, you were a HUGE fan of baked sweet potatoes!

All in all it's been a pretty great month. We brought you to see the (new) Doctor and found out that you will in fact be the starting line for the Bills (ok, hopefully a better team than the Bills...maybe by then they'll be good?). Weighing in at 26 lbs and a cool 32 inches long...yeah, you're the size of a toddler. And we love every inch of you.

We're up to five teeth now and I can't even begin to tell you how freakin' cute you look with teeth. A. Dor. A. Ble.

So, keep up the good work buddy. We love you more and more every day.
