i love 9 months

Every stage of Lucca's young life has been my favorite. I feel like I'm saying that all the time. She was so cuddly and warm as a newborn. Then a couple months later, she melted our hearts with her smile, laugh and sweet voice. Then she began crawling and playing chase with us around the house. Now, she is on the verge of walking. This time, for real, 9 months old is my absolute favorite little baby stage so far.

This past month has been such a treasure. Lucca is such a lover. There's nothing sweeter in this world than the slobbery, open mouth kisses my baby gives me! When she is not loving on us, she is exploring. She is so curious. She wants to touch, hold and taste everything. She loves when we read to her, and she loves reading her books to herself (which is priceless). She waves at everyone. She goes crazy for dogs. She dances to music. She sings. She eats Cheerios. She knows dada, mama, bye-bye, hi, dog, ball, bear and bubble. Our little baby is turning into a little girl!

And they say it just keeps getting better???

Aren't babies the best? Yes, 9 months is pretty awesome. Such the Wonder Years. Today was Levi and Mommy day (daddy and the boys *had* to go to homeschool ski lessons), and we had so much fun just being the two of us -- a rarity. 4 isn't bad either.... :oD

I read that last sentance and thought one of her words was "Beer" instead of "Bear". Aunt Kimmie will teach her "Beer" someday.
