9 months

yes, finley has made it to 9! and let me tell you, this girl is FAST! i cannot take my eyes off of her for a second! she is crawling up a storm and is in to everything! she has figured out how to open the cabinet doors in my office, how to open doors (that aren't totally closed that is), she is pulling up and standing on everything and constantly! just the other day, i was trying to take down our Christmas decorations and i was letting her play on the floor while i worked and the next thing i knew she was crawling up the stairs! seriously! is it time for that?! and she looks as though she has been doing it forever. she can race right up them! unfortunately, she has no fear. so tonight ryan and i bought a gate :) we'll show her...whatever! her two bottom teeth are about halfway up. it happened fast. and the girl will NOT stop saying da da :) i am pretty sure she knows who she has wrapped around her little finger! it's gotten to be a joke because she says da da ALL the time! and anytime we ask her to say mamma she will repeat your tone and inflection but say da da. smart girl! she is certainly the light of our lives. we love her so very much!

which direction

ha! so i am trying to decide if i write to catch up or start now and go backwards :) i am thinking i'll work my way up.

8 months

seriously! this fall has been CRAZY busy! business has certainly kept me on my toes...which i will NEVER take for granted. i am so blessed to do something i am so passionate about and love so much...anyways, little missy turned 8 months (about 2 months ago...yikes!) as you can see from the picture, she was working on some bottom teeth. she was crawling and starting to pull up on everything. she is such a sweet girl and this is such a fun stage....even if she keeps me on my toes. i wish you could hear her laugh. she laughs all the time. it is the sweetest sound. you can't help but smile when you hear that chuckle. peek-a-boo is probably her favorite game. i am so very thankful for this time and every moment i have to spend with her. i do not take it lightly. what a blessing!
