9 months in, 9 months out.

Our little chubbathron5000 is 9 months old tomorrow. He is such a character. This photo below describes him to the tee, always always curious about new things, loves to play with whatever he’s not supposed to, and always up to mischief. When you tell him, “No Kayen”, to him it means, YES NOW! GO FOR IT!

Just now, he had a full on – ‘pre-toddler tantrum’, with his head tilted all the way backwards, moaning and screaming at the top of his lungs, because he wanted to be off the high chair. Kris and myself were struggling not to laugh and maintain a stern face, because he was SO DRAMATIC, it was hilarious.

Curious, Determined and Dramatic is the top three characteristics of this child, at this point of his life.

He’s often a ball of fun, when he’s in a good mood. He loves to give his two teeth grin, which literally melts my heart.

He still is, a reluctant crawler and would just scoot forwards with his butt. He side walks with aids, like a little crab and it very cute to watch. He loves to mumur ‘DADADADA’ and reluctantly yells ‘MAHHHHHHMAHHHHHHHH’ from time to time. But he clearly knows who Kayen, Mama and Dada is. Whenever Dada comes home from work, he would call out to him super loudly and try to get picked up. When Daddy doesn’t immediately do his bidding, he breaks into a really really upset cry. He needs to learn to get positive attention instead, something that we’re working towards.

We love him, more than words can ever describe adequately. He truly is the most exhausting project of our marriage, but also the most wonderful addition to our family.
