/\ The rhodis outside our apartment are in full bloom. As soon as we get out the door /\
you point and 'oooh' as you try to climb out of my arms to touch the pretty flowers
/\ You talk all the time. Mama loves to hear your voice and see your funny faces /\
/\ We've been going on lots of walks with Nora! This was the first day you /\
wore real shoes and I think you felt really grown up. And happy!!
/\ You love to play in your room. But hardly with your toys! You're more /\
interested in climbing around the furniture, and peeking at Mama!
/\ We walked to the soccer park to watch Daddy play with his friends. We were parked /\
on the hill and you were mesmerized by the ball being kicked back and forth. Then
you fell asleep on the way home.
/\ Once you learned to stand by yourself, you never want to be down. Your balance is /\
so good you can move all around and play with toys without tipping over! Also, that
little outfit was so funny. A little too small..but funny.
/\ Ha! This is such a great photo of you. That stuff all over your face is black beans /\
and avocado. Waving your hands in the air like ya just don't care!
/\ More new food! You had fun biting the watermelon but, after chewing it a couple times, /\
you spit it out. All over Aunt Sue!
/\ Our first Mother's Day together at Point Defiance Park /\
/\ You would have eaten every single rock on the beach if Mama woulda let you! /\
/\ And every blade of grass!! /\
/\ Uncle Jordy is introducing you to all sorts of new music. You like Vampire Weekend /\
just like Mama does! Dance party!!
/\ We've spent so much time outside because the weather has been uh-mazing! /\
I always put out the picnic blanket and you crawl straight to the edge. Just to
make sure the grass is okay ;)
/\ You always have fun playing with Aria. You thought her magnets were so cool. /\
/\ You and Mama built a little fort to play in. The look on your face when Mama climbs around /\
with you is priceless. I'll climb under the table/desk/bouncy chair anytime just to see that goofy grin!
/\ We took our first trip to the Home Depot plant center. It was like a jungle! /\
/\ You wore shorts most days this month. I love your chubby legs! /\
/\ You showed Carabelle how to swing for her first time. She was a little nervous but you helped /\
her be brave!
Dear 9 Month Old,
You are Mama's best friend! You laugh at all my jokes. You think my dance moves are super cool. You don't mind hanging out with me 24/7. You are always willing to give me a big hug and kiss. Pretty much, you're just my favorite person. I love you!
