My love bug,
You are nine months old and in the last month you have grown so much. It is fun to see you change before our eyes. I love you more and more each day.
You are a champion eater! You look forward to your meals and your eyes light up when I ask you if you want to eat. Your favorite foods are pears, apples and prunes. You have a sweet tooth and I don’t know who you got that from – probably me! You’ve also accomplished eating puffs in your own. I have to give them to you one at a time or else you grab them al and shove as many as you can into your mouth at once. It’s hilarious! You are too cute.
Rolling used to be a challenge for you but you’ve gotten the hang of it. If I’m in the kitchen and you are playing in your own and notice that I’m not there, you start to tell and roll and roll and roll until you get as close to me as you can, often stopped by the coffee table. It is so cute.
It is probably time to put away your favorite infant jungle gym because you spend less time in your back and more time on your tummy. It will be sad when I do put it away. I remember when you couldn’t reach the animals because you were so tiny. Now you can stick them into your mouth! You will miss your little friends.
Over the last few weeks, you have started to figure out napping. You let me hold you until you fall asleep and then I can put you into your crib. You still only nap for about 30 minutes once I put you down but I will take it! You sleep really well at night, which I love!!
Your glasses and patch have helped you develop so much. I’m so glad that it is worth the hassle of them. You have figured out how to take each off though and have surprised me a couple of times. The scariest was I put the patch on and we went in the car to our mommy group. When we got there, you had taken it off. I couldn’t find it anywhere. I even looked in your mouth. All the moms told me that you couldn’t possibly have eaten it. But, no less than 30 minutes later, out of your mouth came your patch. I think I even nursed you too! To this day, I don’t know where you hid it in your mouth 🙂
You’re developing a very special relationship with your daddy. You are a mummy’s girl right now but as soon as your daddy gets home from work or walks into the room, your eyes light up. You are so very vocal with him. You tell him stories and shriek with delight when he makes you laugh. I’m so happy and love to listen to the two of you together. I’m so glad that the two of you have that bond. I have a special bond with my daddy too even now!!
You love to sleep in your tummy now. It is so cute. Sometimes I look into your monitor and your little bottom is sticking up and your legs are tucked under you. I want to come into your room and scoop you up. You are so cute!!
I love you so much! You’ve been through a lot in your short life and you make me proud!
Love always and forever,
