Look at all baby has achieved! Your nine-month-old baby is probably sitting with or without support , pulling up to standing, clapping her hands and maybe even working on crawling and cruising. She also loves picking up food to feed herself using her index finger and thumb in the "pincer" grasp. With these abilities, life has really become an adventure for baby-and you, as you've been following her as she explores, pointing her toward new things to examine and touch. In fact, baby might just shoot up like crazy this month. Average weight for a 9-month-old baby is Average length is
Yozi September 14,pm. We took a huge leap of faith and moved in together at 3 months because my landlady kicked me out of my apartment not something I wanted or would advise but thankfully it worked out.
Last month he totally surprised me by proposing while we were on vacation. I forget his exact timeline, but I know he thinks couples should be together for a long while before getting hitched.
Buzzelbee September 14,pm. My husband and I took way longer on most of these but we started dating in college, so we were definitely on the younger side. We dated for five years before moving in together, six years before getting engaged, and then seven years before marriage. We just celebrated our three year wedding anniversary and am so glad we waited because that was right for us.
Marriage is hard work and when I see shows like Say Yes to the Dress I feel like that message is lost in the desire to be a bride. Wendy is great for this BTW, I just wish the message was more prominent in mainstream media.
GatorGirl September 14,pm. My BF and I talk a lot about this, and are consciously making decisions to create a solid marraige, rather than a flashy wedding. Oh, also, ONLY if you can afford it! People who go into debt for flashy weddings are wasting their money, in my opinion. But my hubby and I had a great wedding, it was in an awesome venue with everyone we love, great music, amazing party!
LA September 14,pm. Me and my boyfriend are on a fairly similar timeline to yours: met early in college and moved in together after 6 years only recently. Occasionally we talk about marriage, but as something far off. We talk more about how we want to spend our lives together and how we consider ourselves a family.
Sarah September 14,pm. On the other hand, we were naming our future children within like three months?
Britannia September 14,pm. Usually took 6 months or so.
L September 14,pm. I think these are pretty accurate too, but of course, each relationship is different so each stage will come at a different time. For me, things started very quickly.
I think I said I love you first, maybe weeks into the relationship. We knew things would be long-term pretty much from the beginning, so we were planning things holidays, trips to see his dad, etc. We actually discussed potential marriage within the first months.
We had discussed marriage values within the first month. Then I look at my cousin who just got engaged to a girl he had been dating for 6 months, tops. I like this time tableas a guide line. There are about million different things that could alter it. My BF and I have been together almost 4 yearsbut almost 3 of them were long distance. His little sister is now engaged, to her BF of 18 months.
Personally, I think every person, men and women, need to have their own time table of relationship mile stones, and communicate them to their significat other. Also, be willing to negotiate and meet in the middle when you have different time frames for things.

9 months dating milestones
My fiance and I were together for a month or 2 before I said I love you- I was drunk and it came out! We planned a vacation together after 6 months, we moved in together after about 2. By the time we get married next week!!! I would have loved to have gotten engaged sooner, but looking back, I think it was right for us to wait a little bit. SpaceySteph September 14,pm.
I feel pretty accurately pegged so far We went to Thanksgiving at his parents house 7 months after we started dating and he met mine at New Years that same year. And I have a suspicion he may propose at Thanksgiving or shortly thereafter my family is going to his parents house for Thanksgiving so everyone can meet which would be well inside the 14 months to 3 years timeframe.
At least I can be normal at something!
Christy September 14,pm. Is it really possible to know someone well enough after that short amount of time? Kerrycontrary September 14,pm. Ehhh I definitely think 18 months is long enough.
But it also depends what stage of life you are in. My bf and I are at 2 years and I would say we know each other very well, but I just finished grad school and we are both at early points in our careers. Therefor we both want to wait until we are a little more settled.

Oct 13, Continued Tips for Your Baby's Ninth Month: Your 9-month-old is eager to move around. Give him plenty of opportunities to crawl, stand, and cruise - with you nearby to supervise, of course.
Mine was: he says I love you at a month and a half. Talk about engagement: two months. Move in together: 8 months, 4 of which were long distance [I feel comfortable about moving in together: 12 months ] Get excited about possibility of engagement: 16 months He expresses sureness of engagment is waning: 18 months Breakup because I realize I do not want to marry him: 20 months He moves out of apt share together.
BTW I was totally kidding about doing it right. Eagle Eye September 14,pm. Overall, this seems pretty accurate - he first said I love you at around the 2 mos mark, i followed a week later, we moved in together at 1 yr and probably started to have some vague-ish discussions about marriage.
As for the proposal itself, well, the deal is whoever is ready to get married proposesalthough right now neither of us is, so it might in a few years. CatsMeow September 14,pm. How does it come up in conversation? What other things do all you commenters out there think should happen before a couple is ready for marriage?
Skyblossom September 14,pm. I think the honeymoon phase ends somewhere between 12 to 24 months, depending on the couple. As for how marriage came up in conversation with my husband and I was that he knew that I would be moving across the country for grad school and asked what I wanted for our relationship when I left.
I looked at him and told him I wanted to marry him. I think if you just ask him what he wants for your relationship you can get a good feel for where he is at and what he is thinking of for the future. I think the honeymoon phase can last between 9 months and a year and a half. Probably factors like the sorts of things you do together could affect it.
9 Adorable Relationship "Firsts" All Guys Notice
For example, my boyfriend and I are long distance, so we end up doing more fun things together when we meet up, like camping and hiking and going to restaurants or me making all his favorite foods.
I think the honeymoon phase is fading out when you start to find each other annoying sometimes but obviously still love each other. Like I used to find it really funny and cute that my boyfriend would sing a song about having to urinate or loudly sing the Zelda soundtrack in the shower.
End honeymoon phase where I loved everything he did. Enter reality phase with both good and bad stuff. I got married very young 19 and it was super fast. I wish I knew how to bring marriage up a second time.

This is equally as important. In the early stages of a relationship, things tend to be pretty physical. The first time he really missed you.

Those early dates can be high tension. The first time he really sees a future with you. If he likes you enough to go on more than one date with you, then of course he sees something there.
It could be something you say or a look you give him. But the first time he sees your future together as not a vague idea, but as a fully formed and detailed concept, really changes things for him.
