Nine Months In, Nine Months Out

It's impossible to believe that our incredibly sweet and precious baby girl has blessed our lives for nine months.  I know that I say this often about her, but she is such a blessing.  I don't think a sweeter baby has ever existed.  Her coy smile charms each person on the receiving end of it.  She is a snuggler and I'm so fortunate to be her favorite snuglee. Oh, I love this baby so much more than I ever thought possible.

Oh how this girl loves sleeping in a bed with her mama.  

So much has changed for Little Miss Sydney over the last month.  She is full-on crawling now, thanks to her daddy.  He worked diligently teaching her every chance he got.  Well, it paid off.  She is crawling everywhere and at a quick speed.  Her little knees are red and every speck of fuzz, scrap of food and/or small toy on our floors gets picked up and put in her mouth.  And, even though I have been working on getting her to say Mama, she came out with DaDa and hasn't stopped saying it since.  

Look at those knees!

And, look at all that hair!

Her two front teeth are both coming in, bless her heart.  Just today her top right one poked through enough so that I could feel it with my finger.  Consequently, she has been drooling like crazy and now her latest thing is sticking her tongue out {to feel the tooth?}.  It's hilarious to watch.  

Could she be any more precious?

I took Sydney in to the doctor a couple of days ago for a small rash on her leg.  We go in on Tuesday for her 9 month well-check.  But, at this recent appointment, she weighed 18 pounds 11 ounces.  Eighteen pounds, eleven ounces of pure sweetness.


And, I hope Marissa doesn't mind, but I grabbed a couple pictures she posted from our photo shoot to put up here.  I'm so excited to see the rest of them!  {If you are in the Portland area and need a photographer, I highly recommend her!} 

Oh dear Lord, how I love this sweet little baby.


Happy 9 Months, Boogie.
Somehow, Boogie and Boogs have become my pet name for her.  Olivia suggested Cee-Cee the other day.  Or would it be See-See?

I agree, she is a very lovable, precious baby girl. I love her to pieces and can't get enough "neck sugar kisses" from her.

I'm so blessed to see her growing up and the changes she is making almost on a daily basis. Pretty soon she will be walking (don't want to think about it) and our precious baby will be a full blown toddler.

Lord, thank you for my precious grand daughters.

Ditto! Sydney is a "Keeper" for sure!

Sydney is indeed precious and so lovable! I MUST have the photo of her covering her face while sleeping! She looks adorable in all the photos.
