This is it, you guys. The last update for Emilia before she turns one. I’m actually tearing up. Where did my baby go?
Seven months with Emilia, it’s crazy how much she changed from months 6-7. She started crawling, and once she got it down she’s so fast! If I turned my back for just a second she was gone. She loves to be outside and loves animals. She’s curious and likes to explore all the rooms now that she’s mobile.
Eight months was when pretty much said goodbye to pureed baby food. She wouldn’t eat it anymore. So now she has simple variations of what we eat for dinner. Eight months is also when Emilia learned she can pull herself up. She’s pulling to stand up on whatever is within her reach, and that includes the stairs. The baby gates have officially gone up.
Nine months. The same amount of time she was in my belly, and now the times she’s been Earthside. It’s crazy, I look back on being pregnant, on when I had just had her. She was so tiny. Just over seven pounds. And now shes 17.8lbs.
Emilia has such a fun personality. She’s goofy and silly and loves to laugh and give kisses. She’s such a happy baby, she hardly ever really cries anymore. We still don’t sleep all the way through the night but that’s okay. I think I’ll miss her when she’s not in our room anymore which will probably be at a year old.
She has two bottom teeth that she cut at the same time, so that was lots of fun for everyone. And I’m pretty sure she’s about to start cutting a top one here soon. She’s such a cuddler but only on her terms, she loves to play with her grandma and love on her daddy, but it’s still me she seeks out for comfort and I hope that never changes.
This has been one of the hardest updates for me. I can’t believe how big she’s getting, how has it already been nine whole months? I’m still in shock and can’t decide when it will actually sink in that my baby is getting to be more toddler-like than a baby. Probably never.
Lots of love from the Tar Heel State
