Fall is flying by, and so are your days as a tiny infant. You are growing up before my very eyes baby girl and I can't help but turn into a big bowl of jello as I look back at pictures of when you were oh so little. I know I'll never be able to have those moments again and it makes me a bit sad. These past few nights have been sleepless since you've been a bit under the weather, yet I can't help but cherish the time I get to hold you and rock you to sleep...that's what being a Mom is all about.
Caroline, you are a total ball of energy and you go until you pass out. At times, I know you are tired and you'll wipe your eyes with your hands, yet you look at me like "please don't make me take a nap Mommy"...total heartbreaker I tell you.
Everyone tells me 6-9 months has been their favorite time with their kiddos and so I am trying to soak in each and every moment from this fun/crazy/exciting stage.
Where we're at these days...
Attachment Woes. Seriously, I know one day I will look back and say I wish this lasted longer, yet now that we're in the middle of it, I am hoping we get through this soon...you want me ALL.DAY.EVERYDAY. If I walk away for even one minute, you start screaming at the top of your lungs. Your poor Daddy doesn't feel the love sometimes for he can't console the crying when you want your way. Oh Caroline, I fear that you are a total mama's girl just like me...
time to eat=naked baby (far easier to keep her clean)
Size Matters. Looking back at pictures from the past few months, it's safe to say you are "leaning out" a bit and some of that baby fat has gone away (BOO), quite possibly due to the amount of time you are jumping and moving around. You are in 6-9 month clothes now and you look simply adorable in all your fall fashion...you have enough leggings, boots, jackets, shirts, sweater dresses, and such to last for a LONG time. You are still in size 2 diapers, but I am thinking we will be in size 3 Huggies before too long.
We took you to the park for Daddy's company picnic the last weekend in September and we wanted to see if you were ready for the "baby" swing at the park...Mommy was a bit weary, but as soon as we put you in, you got super excited and we knew this was going to be a hit! Of course I managed to get a few shots of you, too!
Your latest expression is to make a funny snarl...you crinkle your nose and sniff and it's TOO funny to watch. Mimi says it's the exact face I used to make as a child and you keep doing it over and over again because we all laugh at you. You also love to give kisses, pull hair, and have started to take notice in jewelry as of late...watch out friends and family.
That's all I can think to report this month love bug. Our days are filled with so much joy and happiness and we have you to thank for that. So much fun in store this next month and celebrating your first Halloween is only a few weeks away!
