9 Months

My Dearest Emma,

As I write this, you are sound asleep in your crib. I am so grateful for that, as you have had many restless nights the past few weeks. You have double ear infections and it seems as though you now have a cold as well. Your Mommy and Daddy are trying as hard as we can to make you comfortable and help you to feel better. We wish we could do more.

You have been quite a busy girl this past month. You are now crawling like a pro, pulling up on everything, and even cruising a little bit! You FINALLY got your first tooth and it's so cute! Your favorite things to play with are not toys, but cups, paper, shoes, hairbrushes, socks, and of course, Mardi Gras beads. Speaking of Mardi Gras, you were such a trooper through all the parades and festivities. For the most part, you enjoyed being close to your Daddy in the Baby Bjorn and catching lots of stuffed animals, cups, and beads. And you were proud to show everyone how you can now wave!

You are loving your finger foods these days. Sometimes we have a hard time getting you to eat your babyfood because you would so much rather have a cheerio or puff! You also love any kind of bread (pancakes, waffles, buns, etc.). As soon as you get some more teeth we will be able to venture into eating more finger foods! You are SO ready!

We love you so much Emma Grace. You are such a joy. You have truly taught your Mommy and Daddy how to be selfless and sacrifice ourselves for your needs.

Oh, and have I mentioned that you have TONS of hair?!

Mommy and Daddy
