Hi - It's nonagenerian. (from the latin.octo=8 and novem=9).
Nonagenarian (I just checked the spelling because of all the possible versions given in the other answers!)
Interestingly enough, have you ever noticed that the last four English months, SEPTember, OCTober, NOVember and DECember contain the Latin for 7, 8, 9 and 10 in them? But in fact they are the 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th months!! Weird!!
It's actually the fault of bigheaded Roman caesars Julius and Augustus, who added two months into the 10-month year (July and August), thus pushing the 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th months into the wrong place. Fascinating.
