Our Baby Girl At Nine Months



With us well and truly into August now, the prospect of being three quarters through this year is starting to scare me a tad.  Why are the weeks whizzing past so fast?  In only a few months our baby girl will be one! A fortnight ago, Sophie hit nine months and it is such a cute age.  She is growing and changing and learning so many new things every single day.  However, while these milestones are unbelievably exciting, it’s the unique little ‘Sophie-isms’ that make my heart literally burst with love.  Here’s just a few I want to remember…




·         The way she strikes the same ‘pose’ with one leg crossed over the other, balancing on her toes every single time she rests or pauses for a second.

·         At night, once I’ve zipped her up in her sleeping bag, she waves to the photo of herself and then nestles her head into my neck for one last cuddle as I turn off her lamp and sing her a goodnight song.

·         She has the chubbiest little toes and feet and loves to be bare foot, taking great delight in pulling her socks off at any opportunity, especially in the car or in the pram.

·         Her hand grips sweetly onto the neck of my top or front of my bra as she’s feeding, like she’s pulling herself in closer for more of a snuggle… I’m cherishing these last few months of breastfeeding.

·         When I ask for a kiss, she opens her mouth wide like a little fish and leans in – so cute!



I can’t wait to see what the next few months brings for our feisty, cheeky, happy little bub…
