Eliel: 9 months

 9 months in and 9 months out!

Eliel turned 9 months on Tuesday! The 9 month birthday feels significant since he has now been with us as long as he grew inside me.  He's wearing a hand me down soccer jersey this week for the World Cup.  :)

Eliel has been to a few splash pads in the past month and been swimming once.  He seems to really enjoy the water.  He is making even bigger messes than before (I didn't think this was possible) while eating with us at the table.  He is getting a kick out of our instrument basket, carrying around maracas and the egg shaker, and he also enjoys making everything into a drum.  His favorite item to hold on to as he scoots around the house is still Mavry's brush, though.  He is still going strong with his belly crawl, but he has shown us that he will lift up his belly and do a proper crawl if he is outside on the grass, on the hot front porch, or at a playground with a rough surface.
