9 Months

Dear Finley,

Wow baby girl, you have come a long way. You just seem to be getting better and better. You're 9 months old now and you've been out as long as you were in. A lot has happened in the past 3 months. You will now ride in a stroller a bit, you got 4 teeth, you're yapping up a storm and most importantly you started crawling. I thought in true second child fashion that you would crawl early but you took your time and started at exactly the same time as your big sis did, 8 1/2 months. Although you did master the whole pulling yourself up to standing about 2 wees before you figured out how to crawl. Crawling Fin is like a whole new baby, dare I say a happy one.

You are still very much a mama's girl, which I love and hate. I love that you love me oh so much but I wish you would let other people hold you when I am around. You had a good month when you did but now you can't stand to be held by anyone else if I am nearby. Sometimes you even give daddy the cold shoulder even though you say "dada" all day long. You also still adore your big sister Aubrey. No one can make you laugh the way she does. She loves you too and always wants to be there to help get you out of your crib when you wake up from naps.

I am so looking forward to seeing you develop from baby to toddler because you seem to be enjoying this stage of your life so much better than the newborn stage. I have a feeling that you are going to have a big personality and be even more fun than you are now. So keep on moving up little girl, clearly you only get better with age.

Lots of love,
Mama

    Your posts give me hope! Iz and Finley seem to have a lot in common and I am happy to hear Finley has become happier. It seems Iz has a long way to go, but I'll keep up the hope! :)

  5. She's so precious! Ethan's being a lazy second sibling. He has no desire to keep up with his big brother! Ethan still hasn't fully STTN...he'll do 10.5 hours...once in awhile. Usually it's 9.5 hours and I'm not feeding him anymore...so he's (happily) awake for like 2-3 hours until his brother gets up for the day! Crazy baby.
