Lindsay Gill: You know you have a nine month old when...

You know you have a nine month old when...

1.  You don't have time to work out but your biceps have never been stronger.  You also have developed the reflexes of a cat.

2.  You feel a sense of victory when one strap of the diaper is done and you're working on the second one...right when your baby flips completely around and the diaper comes completely off.

3.  You have wished there was drive-through grocery shopping so you don't have to move your sleeping baby from their car seat.  Drive-through everything, actually.

4.  You have never hated lawnmowers, dump trunks, or those loud motorcycles or anything else that wakes up a baby with so much passion.

5.  You have tried a Puff.  And you've gone out in public with a Puff in your hair.

6.  You have run out of songs to sing to your little one and have resorted to singing Jingle Bells at an unseasonable time.

7.  You have mastered the art of sneaking out of the baby's room and shutting the door like a ninja.

8.  You have one baby slipper, a baby fork, and something that squeaks in your work bag.

9.  You've downloaded at least one baby app for your phone.  Maybe even ten.

10.  You know how to play "the dropping game."

11.  You know that when a Soothie pacifier drops, it will land about 15 feet away in the dirtiest part of your house.  Those things can really bounce!

12.  You love your baby so much it hurts, and you wouldn't change a thing.

What else can you add to the list?
