My last written post was all about how Michelle had just turned 6 months and had her 6 months check up. Well now she is 10 MONTHS and had her 9 Month check up a couple of weeks ago. She lost 2 oz instead of gaining weight in the last 3 months. She has gotten taller and leaner. She was 27 1/2 inches long. Shes eating more solid foods. She really loves food. Like, alot. Its ridiculous. She watches us eat and begs like a little dog but its cute.
Its August now which means her birthday is next month. I’m already buying party supplies and inviting guests and I’m like, where did this year go? I know I’ve said this a million times, “it feels like I just had her” but it’s true! This has been the quickest year of my life. I remember that day so clearly. It seems impossible it’s almost been a whole year.
Michelle has developed quite a little personality here lately. She laughs and plays games with us. She has favorite shows on tv and gets visibly excited when they come on. She is WALKING! She took 6 steps the day before she turned 9 months old, And has been running ever since. We just got her some little tennis shoes and she actually likes walking in them. For a while. Then she takes them off and tries to eat them… She claps. She’s learned that excitement and clapping go hand in hand. She is so smart and picks things up so quickly. She’s amazingly bright. She has just started to dance when she hears music. I guess the next step is talking. Can’t wait for that one!
Pretty soon I’ll be posting about her birthday party and how it went. I’ll be a blubbering mess that day I’m sure, and if not, I’ll be surprised. Hopefully I’m tougher than I give myself credit for because I don’t have the water proof kind of mascara….
