To My Sweet 9 Month Old Baby Girl
This month marks the month that you have now spent the same amount of time in the real world as you did growing inside of me! Crazy thought!
This month you consistently will clap for yourself or other people, give high fives to those around you, and do other silly things to get a reaction from people. You love to make people laugh and you adore any kind of attention you can get.
You crawl crazy fast now, and everything has to go right in your mouth while you are exploring the world. One night Daddy was playing tennis with his friend, Wyatt, and you snuck a leaf in your mouth without my seeing. I didn't know it was even in there until you started coughing and gagging on it, and I was able to get it out of your mouth. It was kind of scary for me, and I've had to watch you a lot more carefully now to make sure you are kept safe.
Your hair is finally long enough for me to put two piggies on the top of your head. You definitely look like your nickname now--Bug. They are so cute, I melt a little every time I see you with them.
You cut FOUR teeth this month, bringing your grand total up to six little teeth in that cute mouth of yours. You, my little bug, were a monster while you cut all of those teeth, and you did not want to take naps. When I would lay you in your crib, you would just stand up to the side and cry and scream and not nap at all. You were also running a fever and had a runny nose and were so sad with all those teeth coming through, so I spent a lot of time snuggling you and trying to help you feel better.
Your daddy and I celebrated our third anniversary this month, and we decided to take a family day-cation up to the zoo. You really enjoyed yourself and loved having so many different things to look at.
We celebrated our first Strawberry Days with you this year as well. That week we were also babysitting my cousin's three little boys, and they got to celebrate with us. We went to the carnival, the parade, Huck Finn Days, and entered you in the baby contest. It was a fun week, and you loved having those boys to play with too. You actually love all little kids in general, and love being around them and trying to copy them. Are you sure you were supposed to be an oldest child?
Other favorites this month were going to Seven Peaks a lot--your favorite is the wave pool, and visiting Thanksgiving Point Gardens--you still love going for walks and being outside, and you love playing with your cousins. You are growing up so fast!
Sadiebug, you are precious. You are sweet, you are kind, you are so important, and I love you so much.
Thank you for being my very own,
