9 Months with Ruth


It is so hard to believe that you have been with us for 9 months. I feel like I say this every time I sit down and write your monthly post, but it remains true. The time seems to pass all too quickly with you.

In the last two weeks you have gone from a slow little army crawler, to an efficient real crawler, to attempting to pull up on everything. You seem to have gone from not so mobile to frighteningly fast and trying to keep up with you with us to be in the middle of everything.

This month has marked another big milestone for us. You started waking up in the night again and wanting to eat. I had been concerned that you weren't nursing enough, and it confirmed to me that you needed more to eat. So we have swapped you over to formula for every meal except breakfast.

Your personality continues to be cheery and content. If Britt takes away your toy you just head off to find a new one. He shows his love for you in the most rough and tumble way sometimes and you rarely cry but grin and laugh at his silly antics. This may not continue as you two grow older, but I would like to hope that you treasure each other as close siblings rather than evil arch enemies.

Your smile and laugh are endearing, and I often hang out with you in the bed a little too long since you are a sunny, cuddly girl. Your Daddy and I love you so very much, and we hope you never forget that.

I can't believe that Ruth is already 9 months, time flies!! She is such a cutie, but then her brother is also a cutie so it must run in the family!!
