i went out with my boyfriend for about 9 months. we broke up and started dating other people. but 4 months after the breakup, we got back together. so what I am asking is, do we start the dating time all over again or do we continue it as if we never broke up, or do we just count the months we dated?

Does it matter?
You can't act like you never broke up. You both did, you both know that you did, and that will be one of your lasting memories over time.
However, in dating this second time around, you both know each other fairly well from the previous relationship. Some things may have changed, but in only four months I doubt it's anything significant. So the chances are good that the both of you will resolve to that previous comfort level developed together, and will take off from there.
I guess if the numbers really mean something important, you would add the nine months of the previous relationship with whatever you have now.1
