9 Months

Sweet Eli,

I can't believe that you are 9 months old today! Though it feels like ages since I first heard your tiny little cry, I am amazed at how quickly these months together have flown by.

You continue to amaze me. Your sweet spirit is one of the biggest blessings in my life. You are our miracle, reminding us every single day that God is faithful. Oh, how I love you, my baby boy. It is an honor to be your mom.

This month you...
-Perfected the art of sitting up.
-Began to notice and "talk to" the dogs.
-Started eating more from your bottles!
-Weighed in at 13# 1oz.
-Made it clear that long walks outside are your absolute favorite activity.
-Got a little better at eating with a spoon, although you're still not too big a fan of being fed that way.
-Found your love of teething biscuits, crackers, and chocolate cookies. :)
-Became so much more ticklish!
-Captured our hearts each and every day.

Happy 9 months, Eli Dane! You are the joy of our lives.

So sweet! Is it hard to believe he's been here longer than you and Eric were married when he was born? You know what I mean?
