To think that she is 9 months old (40 weeks old) or the same amount of time that I was pregnant – is mind blowing. To be honest the first 5 months of her life is an utter blur mainly because of the lack of sleep and the fact that it flew by. The last few months have been so great to watch her grow and develop her own personality. She amazes me on a daily basis with the new skills she has learned so quickly. She is standing up, taking a few steps before she falls down to crawl quickly to the next point of the room to do it all over again.
She is sleeping through the night consistently. Yeah! She still doesn’t have any teeth, but is drooling and chewing it up. Sometimes, when I walk away from her at home she gets a little cranky. I would be lying if I said that I didn’t like it. Sometimes I like to feel needed by her, especially when I have been working all day and want to feel needed at the end of the day by her. At night, I rock her just a little bit longer because it’s the only time of day she is still and not going a million miles an hour. Takes me back to her newborn days when all she did was lay on me.
Her baby blue eyes run straight through my soul. In her eyes I see a bright future ahead for both her and I. What a great feeling to know that the world is your oyster just waiting for you to discover it. I want the world for her always and forever. She loves anything electronic (phones, remotes, and computers). She knows the difference too between a real gadget and a fake baby toy pretending to be a remote. Give her a fancy toy and she will leave it for a simple ball that she will throw over and over again.
Going and going all day long. No more lounging around for this babe which is making our monthly photo shoots much more harder to take. Case in point…
Being a baby is not always butterflies and rainbows. Sometimes Miss Reese can get a bit fussy if things are going quite her way. I wonder where she got that from?? he he
