stella, nine months old!

tomorrow zoe turns seven, rowan turned three last month, and today stella is nine months old. 
if there is one piece of advice that i can leave with any new mom, it's cherish every last hiccup, clap, sloppy wet kiss, nighttime feeding, and more--because in a blink of an eye they are older and off and running...

hi, baby...
on your nine month day--i say it a lot but you are such a blessing! 
nine months later you're eating more and more off our plates, crawling, standing, crusing, singing, clapping, playing peek-a-boo, and laughing. you say da-da like it's your job and mama when you see me. 
you sleep through the night still and have decided that we are about done nursing, *tear. 
you have six teeth. very sharp teeth, and paper is your favorite snack.
you love love love your sisters, especially instantly crack up laughing anytime she is around. you're more cautious of rowan as she is constantly tackling you for a hug or sitting on you.
i can't believe in three short months you will be one, i already have your party all planned of course.
we watch you grow a litte more everyday, transforming from a baby into a little lady. we love you stella j!
