family

I can’t believe it. My sweetest little Odin, you are 9 months new.

You are such a sweetie. You give high fives and blow little kisses. You suck your cheeks in so deep into your mouth that you look like a little goldfish gasping for air.

You love to unpack cupboards and watch television with your mouth wide open. Granny Gladys tells me you LOVE to watch Barney (eek!).

DSC_0313 DSC_0318You also love to feed yourself. You have discovered it’s quite funny when you spit out your food. You love to finger paint once you’ve spat out your meal. Your best friend Lily also enjoys when you eat because there’s always a fountain of food raining down on her. You especially love tomatoes and baby marrows. Another favorite of yours is when we give you a large piece of biltong to ‘gum’ on (you don’t have any teethies yet).

You’re not crawling yet, however you love to stand. You get quite upset when we want to make you sit down. You love when we hold on to your little arms so you can walk around. It is the cutest thing! You take such b-i-g steps with such purpose.

You sleep in between daddy and I at night. At first it was because we said this winter was too cold for you to sleep on your own. At the moment, I’m starting to think we put you in our bed so we can get to see and spend a little more time with you. You have developed such a charming little personality and we miss you when we’re not with you.

You are the happiest giggling little boy. Your laugh is the best sound in the world!

We love you so much. You are SUCH a delight!

P.S. See month 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 here.

P.P.S. Did you see the watermark on my pictures? Yeah, I’m cheating on With Big Yellow Dogs blog on Yellow Lab blog. It’s the same principle really, except Yellow Lab is a bit more professional as hubby and I have (finally!) decided to pursue our dreams. I’ve moved this entire blog to Yellow Lab. Please come have a look at the site and follow along there. I’d also LOVE to know what you think of the new site, our name and the branding!

Last week I shared photos that a photographer friend of mine came to take of my family a little while ago. As promised, here is the rest of my favorite photos from that shoot. I love how Dawid Roux Photography captured this little honey of mine. I especially adore the ones with his daddy. The one where Odin is on his daddy’s shoulder fist pumping…… he looks like a little mini version of his dad.

Naturally, I saw the opportunity and asked Dawid to take a family picture of us on the steps to our house to add to our collection.
