the newbie: I Love 9 Months!

By Melissa Walker, who can also be found blogging at melissacwalker.com


Usually I ask questions or fish for advice, and I’m so appreciate every bit of Mom wisdom that comes my way! It definitely takes a village. But this week, I thought I’d share a few things about Miss June at 9 1/2 months, because it is the most FUN time ever!

♥ This girl has charm in spades. She smiles at friends and bats her eyes, basically turning anyone she sees into a pile of lovey mush.

♥ She’ll eat ANYTHING. June has a huge appetite and she is up for trying all kinds of foods, from sweet potatoes to sardines (seriously!). Her one objection so far: spicy mustard.

♥ She adores her dad. Watching her eyes follow my husband around the room is so sweet—she squeals with delight when he picks her up and tickles her.

♥ The swings! Watching her little legs jerk back and forth in utter glee as we swing her on the playground is one of my new favorite activities.

♥ She makes herself laugh all the time. With a sound, a movement, a silly face in the mirror—this girl is SO INTO herself, and I love it. I hope it never stops.

So what is it about your little one that makes your heart go pitter-pat? Share the love!
