The best nine months of our lives.

I know I've said this way more times this week than I should have but I can't believe my sweet baby girl is nine months and will no longer be a baby soon!

I'm sure all of you mama's who are putting your babies in school this year want to slap me for saying this considering my baby is still practically a baby but, I seriously can't believe that she is already 9 months. I feel as though the time is just flying by! Time flies when you're having fun right? That, and running around the house to catch your laughing, fast crawling baby!
Words can't describe how thankful and blessed I am to be a stay at home mama! I praise God for giving me the desires of my heart and will forever be grateful to my beloved husband Leon for being super supportive and encouraging me to be at home with our daughter! My husband is amazing. Yes, we most definitely have to live inside our means and our budget is usually pretty tight right now. But when Evelynne wakes up every morning so excited to see me... Really, no money in the world could buy that kind of joy that brings a mama.

It may be hard for me to believe that time feels like it has flown by since I brought Evelynne into the world.. But I honestly don't feel like that's a sad thing.. I love all the new experience's and new adventures we have every day! From flipping, crawling, noticing the simple and beautiful  things of life. It's fun and exciting watching Evelynne grow up and experiencing the newness of things with her.

Evie's accomplishments at nine months:
Standing up all by herself// Walking like a pro with help// Very photogenic//
clapping her hands// waves//  Has two bottom teeth with four on the top coming in// dancing// taking three naps.

Food: Evelynne's favorite food right now is squash, applesauce and organic chicken lunch meat. She is eating solids three times a day and has snack time. She is also starting to try grownup food. She'll see us eating something and she'll want to try it!

Doc appointment: Her 9 month appointment is on Tuesday. Leon is off on Tuesday so, he'll be able to join us! :)

Weight and height: If I had to guess it would be 20 lbs but I won't know for sure until Tuesday :)

Favorite toys: She loves her loud toys especially her piano and her giraffe. She's also developing a special love for her teddy her daddy bought her.

Words: Nothing yet. She's just starting babbling more often. I'm hoping to get a "mama" soon!! ;)

Personality: All I can say is Evelynne has her own haha! She's such a joyful and happy little girl. She's def a morning person with such joy from The Lord. She sure is stubborn though. When she wants something she wants it right this second!.. She's even starting to throw tantrums! Like ones a two year old would throw. Hoping we're experiencing the terrible two's early.

Sleep: She's down to about 3 naps daily. And she naps anywhere from 30 minutes to an hr. Rarely I get an hour and thirty minutes. Bed time she's usually in bed by 7 and up around 6-6:30. For the most part she sleeps through the night but every once in a while she'll wake up around 12ish or 4ish.

Nursing: We are still nursing about 3 times a day and will officially stop at one year.

Mama's thoughts: So excited to be a mom for another month and the rest of the months to come! God is so amazing and I see His perfect gift in our daughter every day. She is such a blessing and I'm so glad He has anointed Leon and I to raise this sweet baby girl as The Lord continues to anoint her for the things He's got planned for her in days, months and years to come.

                                         Happy 9 Months Anointed one.
                                 Words cannot describe our love for you sweet girl.

She is adorable! I know how fast the last 8 months of my pregnancy have gone by, I can't imagine what it will be like once the baby is born! Happy 9 months! She looks so happy!

She is adorable and precious. Her name is so unique too!!! I love children of all ages but under a year is my favorite. Mostly happy and balls of energy. I know so many moms of babies who make it seem like its a chore to take care of the baby and its the hardest thing ever. Theres a differecee between it being hard and you not having the patience to accept that that its hard but they are kids.

Oh my goodness. Be still my heart! She is so precious. I know I say that all the time but... sheesh! She just gets cuter and cuter! Happy 9 months to your baby girl!

Standing? Walking with help? Oh no! This is all on the horizon for us and I am bracing myself for a moving, busy baby!

She is such a doll baby! I love her two little bottom teeth! I know what you mean when you say she growing up too fast! My little seven month old seems sooo old (not really, but you know... ). Crazy how fast goes by with babies around.
