9 (.5) months!

Every night before I go to sleep, I look at the monitor one last time and stare in awe at the perfection that is our child.  Yes, I know, she isn't perfect.  She pitches fits (occasionally) and she will make mistakes in this life.  Who hasn't?  What I mean by perfection is that she is perfect for us.  What an awesome God we have that creates such magic for us to love and nurture.  What an awesome responsibility we have to raise this child.  She is such a pure joy - always quick with a smile (though a terror to change her diaper), a sweet little flirt, an animal lover already.  I cannot believe my baby is already 9 months old!

Molly's stats:
weight - 20 lbs, 9 oz (we don't miss any meals in this house)
height - 29 inches!!!!
diapers - size 3
clothes - size 9 months, but I buy 12 and they fit just fine
Shoes - size 3, but could really use a 2.5 if they existed!  I think she is going to have my small feet
Teeth - 1, the bottom front right tooth
Sleeping - eh...not through the night, but, we'll get there.  2 naps per day (10AM and 3PM)
Nursing - absolutely
Eating - EVERYTHING!  Molly is a fantastic eater (note weight above :)).
Crawling - everywhere
Climbing - everything (including up the stairs!)
Walking - not yet, but trying

Molly is the happiest baby I've ever been around.  I'm only slightly biased, but, she really is just so happy all the time.  I say it everyday...If everyone on this earth woke up each morning as happy as my Molly, this world would be a much better place!


  1. She has gotten so BIG! So beautiful. Can't wait to see you!

  2. Her outfit is adorable Tara...and so is she!
