9 months old: letter to julianna from mommy $

Dear Julianna,

Today you are 9 months old. It's been 9 months since you graced this world with your amazing presence. You have changed so much in the past 9 months. For one, you have way more hair today than you did when you were born. You had hair when you were born but not the crazy, outta control hair that you have today. When we are walking through any store or anywhere really, people always comment on how they love your hair. I love it too. It makes you so unique. You can definitely pull off the standing straight up, bed head look. You're beautiful! You loved to be told you're pretty. You know it's a good thing. Someone told you that you were pretty today and you started to clap.

Besides your looks, you are developing quite the personality! You are learning to throw your own little temper tantrums when you don't get what you want (such as when mommy won't you type on the laptop). You also have become quite the little talker. You can say dada, mama, mom mom, nana, baba, and just this week you have started to say vaooo....which I'm going to intrepret as "I Love You" since your mommy and and daddy tell you that nonstop!

You are also becoming more mobile. You won't crawl, but you'll scoot to where you need to go. You try to pull up on your own but you haven't been very successful. This morning I found you trying to pull up in your crib. You'll get it, keep trying!

One of my most favorite things right now is that you have been sleeping through the night for about 3 weeks now. Even though I enjoyed our 3am bonding time, I'd much rather bond with you when I'm fully awake and alert. Thanks for thinking of me and sleeping til at least 6. You're awesome!

I have enjoyed being your mommy this past 9 months. It hasn't always been easy but I have genuinely loved every minute of it. These past 9 months have flown by and I can't wait to see what's in store for the next 9. You are my whole world, you mean so much to me, and I love you with all of my heart. I am so proud to call you my baby girl!

Happy 9 Months, Julianna Hope!

With all of my love,
