Welcome back then!
At 9 months, my LO was drinking around 22 ounces of BM in 3 bottles a day (she had just switched from 4 bottles to 3). Now she's down around 20 due to an increase in solid food. I am currently weaning from the pump since LO will be a year at the end of this month.
Starting at 1 year, I am going to gradually introduce cow's milk but still give her whatever BM is left in the freezer. If you want to continue pumping longer than 1 year, there's no reason that you have to switch to cow's milk. There's nothing better about cow's milk (except that YOU don't have to produce it!).

my son was drinking 35 ounces a day at that point, but didn't do solids.

My lo is also 9 months old and drinks about 18-20oz per day. She has 3 solid meals per day as well so I guess thats why she drinks so little. She has just 3 bottles per day, before naps and then bedtime.
