I call this the 5 days late, sick mom, rainy day edition.
This kid is awesome. Seriously. She gets more awesome everyday. I was never much of a *kid person* or even a *baby person*… honestly, I wasn’t even sure if I wanted kids or not. But now? I love kids. More specifically: I love my kid. I stare at her in awe and can’t believe I’m a mother to a nine month old. Nine months ago she was born. Nine months before that… well, who knows, but now, its true: she’s mine and she gets better everyday.
I’m pretty sure I say this every month, but this month has been a huge month for Marlowe. She has learned how to clap. She loves giving high fives. She has started waving *again*. She has TEETH! Not one, but two! Maybe even more, it’s hard to tell. But two for sure 🙂 She has taken her first step. On a daily basis she gathers enough bravery to step between furniture. She pulls up on everything and anything: shelves, walls, couches, people, dogs. She can stand for continuous amounts of time on her own. She has learned to shimmy off the couch on her own. She is a quick baby, and get easily get to where she wants to be.
She loves: FOOD. There is not one thing she hasn’t liked so far, but she still prefers the breast and is primarily breastfed (go mama!). She also loves: Books… way more than toys. Dogs… she chases poor old man Jerry and corners him like he developed a set of milk breasts. Phones, glasses, paper, plastic, lint… and anything else she shouldn’t have. She still is not a napper, or a sleeper… just like her mama. She is still a happy and easy baby. She has got a personality to love and fear. She is bold but shy, adventurous, stubborn, brave, and strong. But more importantly: she is Marlowe and she is awesome.
