My Little Journey,
You definitely have more letters than any other 9 month old I know. What are you going to do with all of these? You have over 95 daily letters from me this year so far, plus 8 letters for each month birthday, about 75 from when you were in my tummy, and another few from before you were even there. You are quite loved. I’m already worried about keeping this up for your future siblings. I’d better get started now so they can have as fun of a collection.

I’m already to the point where I am worried I’m going to tell you everything I know before you’re a year old. Hopefully I’ll keep learning and remember to tell you everything else I know. I’ll keep this short to make sure I don’t run out of things to say.
We went to your nine month checkup and you didn’t need any shots. It was such a relief for me. I was panicking all day looking at your smiling face and worried about you having to be in pain, even though it’s only momentary. You came in at 19 pounds 8 ounces, and 28 inches long. Your no longer in the 95th percentile, which makes me a little sad, but I knew this day would eventually come. You’re still in the 70th.
You are such a happy, but serious child. You watch everyone so intently like you’re figuring them out. Everyone notices that about you when you meet them. People often call you “serious.” Once you warm up to them you show off your big beautiful smile though, and will usually try to start a conversation. None of it is in English of course. Well, noting besides “Mama” and “Dada”. At least you’ve learned how to say my name now–Though it’s much less commonly spoken.
How are you sleeping? Well, you’ve got us whipped, let’s just say that. You can go down to sleep just fine when we put you in your bed, and sleep in your room by yourself, but when you wake us up in the middle of the night, somehow you end up in our room. I know this won’t last forever though so I’m taking it in strides.

You love to pull up on everything, and crawl everywhere. You’re very courageous, and love hanging upside down and swinging high in swings.
It’s funny how much I love you. I often wonder if this strong emotion near obsession will go away someday. I hope not. It’s kinda fun.
I love you baby girl.
