A day late and a dollar short but Em turned 9 months old yesterday!
She is getting so big, so fast! It seems like just yesterday that I was pregnant with her and she was kicking the bejebus out of me. And now look at her! She has been out in this world for the same amount of time that I carried her.
Her development is just amazing to me. Gone too soon are the days of her just staying where I put her. She is crawling up a storm, pulling up on everything, and cruising around. She loves to steal Jacob’s toys! She is such a mischievous and happy little baby. Giggly and full of smiles. She has a little spit fire personality and an aura that lights up the room.
The thing I love most about her right now is her “Mommy Phase”. You would think that this would be annoying, but it’s quite the opposite. It melts my heart. Jacob never went through a phase quite like this. Whenever I am holding her she wraps her little fists around in my shirt and if Jonathan tries to get her from me she practically climbs over my back trying to hold on to me with every ounce of her being. It’s an amazing feeling to be loved so fiercely.
Here is the 9 in/9 out picture. And I suppose if we are being honest it’s really 8.25 in and 8.25 out but that doesn’t have the same ring to it…
And two more of me and the lady…you know, for good measure and all that jazz.
