The Little Niko Man is 9 months old. It’s crazy to think that nine months ago, today, we headed to the hospital for the birth of our son. By the time we got there I was in active labour and Niko was already on his way. I specifically remember a conversation with the resident doctor, that went something like this.

Dr. (while examining me and with surprise): Whoa. You are 6 cm dilated!

Me (wide eyed): Really?

Dr.: Yes. So you will be having this baby today.

Me: What? Today? But I’m not due for four more weeks. (And then looking at Borys.) We’re having our baby today!!! Oh my gosh!

Borys: Oh my goodness!

Dr.: Yup. By they way you’re going to have this baby within half an hour!

Me: Oh my goodness!

So that was nine months ago, and now we have this little beauty who keeps delighting our hearts and bringing us joy on a daily basis.

Now that he’s nine months he’s clapping all the time (all the while displaying a proud and curious look to boot), he’s laughing a lot and contagiously, he’s getting closer and closer to crawling  (I can just see him reaching his way forward, wanting to go, but not quite sure how to get going), and he’s got six teeth (that he won’t stop grindingshiver…). What a precious little monkey!

Note: This is part of a series of blog entries that were inspired when Niko wore the bear’s mini karate gi as a Halloween costume. Since then I have used the bear and the costume to document his growth at three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, and now eleven months.
