Nine

Tripling! Nine is three three's. We got out our counting stones again, and as I called out small numbers, K would triple them. In nature, Nine is the number of months in human gestation (my pregnant mama above came out weird... a perfect case of just stop drawing... more won't fix it).

We didn't have a geometric figure for Nine.

Nine is also nine planets in our solar system. Knowing that Pluto has been demoted from planetary status, K drew Pluto all by itself in the upper left-hand corner of the page. In number lore, nine is longevity, a sacred trinity of trinities and has some pretty cool properties in relation to multiplication.
