I can't believe that Jonas is already 9 months old! As a 9-month-old, he loves to "read" books (turning pages on his own, though sometimes 4 pages at a time :)), stands on his own and "cruises", is ok with touching grass now, eats and enjoys anything we (or he!) put in his mouth, has learned to scream (we are currently trying to help him un-learn this), says "please" when he wants more finger foods (in our own version of sign language), and, the most awesome thing of all, gives kisses (bbo-bbo's!), big, open-mouthed, slobbery wet kisses!!!
