On the eve of your 9 month milestone I'd like to thank you for this eighth month. You have been an absolute joy and the growing and developing you've done in one single month has been so exciting and fun to witness.
In your eighth month you:
learnt to crawl
learnt to sit up
wave goodbye whilst saying "Ba-ba"
Put your blanket up to your face, remove it quickly and exclaim "Aaah Berr!" (that's Ah Boo!)
Slept through the night 3 times!
I tell you it's been one busy month of growing and I'm watching my baby girl grow up before my eyes on a daily basis.
I still love our morning feeds together. You're so warm, peaceful and cuddly. After having your milk you nuzzle into my chest, suck your thumb and stay there until you're ready to face the day...or you fall into a peaceful slumber. It's such a nice way to start the day with you.
You are a constant source of delight for all of our family. Your gummy smiles provide endless photo opportunities and moments of joy. There is not a tooth to be seen as yet - just heavy, white gums just waiting to crack a tooth...any day now? I'm loving your gums and your sweet milky breath for more months than I expected. How lucky I am!
I can't imagine what your 9th month will bring. More growing and movement I'm sure. You are loved beyond measure. Your happiness is contagious. Thank you again for choosing us. x
