HEV :: 9 months

I know it sounds so cliché, but it feels like I just brought her home from the hospital.  How has it been 9 months already!? 

Here she is at nine months ( plus five days), 18 pounds, still with her blue eyes, and finally getting some hair.

She is crawling and pulling up on everything.  She walks with a push toy/walker thing-a-ma-jig --- falls about every fifth or sixth step, but walking.  She is having some major separation anxiety issues.  I think that will soon just have to resolve itself because she starts day care for the first time ever on August 19th.  Let's pray that it resolves itself before then.  Just in case it doesn't, I have taken the day off to cry.

I'm putting more bows in her hair and she's tolerating them.  That makes me smile.

She slept great for the first 7ish months of her life.  Now don't get me wrong, she's still a fairly good sleeper today (especially when you compare her to her brother at this age), but she likes to wake up at either 11:45 pm or 4:45 am.  We all go right back to sleep though with her nestled in between us in bed

I can't believe it's going by this quickly.  I've already been all over pinterest and have already started brainstorming, oh who am I kidding, planning her first birthday party.  And that definitely makes me want to cry.

One of my most favorite things about Hadley is just how observant she is.  I don't know if it's just a girl thing or her personality, but when I'm holding her sometimes she will intentionally turn to look at me.  Then she will look at me for a minute or two like she's studying my face, then she will reach out and touch softly touch my cheek, my hair, or my nose.   She also gets a kick out of when I put my sunglasses on.  She looks at me and starts laughing. 
Love her so much!
