Little Miss { 8 Months Old }

 

Little Miss 

As each month passes I find myself saying “I can’t believe Ady is___ months old.”  I really can’t!  She grows and changes so much each month.  You would think after having 4 kids I would feel indifferent about how fast this first year goes by.  But if anything I find it more magical.  I appreciate it more.  I know that before I know it, I am going to have a toddler who runs and talks.  This is my last chance to enjoy this stage and I have to admit that 8 months is my favorite. 

I love every piece of her.  From her hair that falls into her eyes if I don’t have it pulled back, to the little freckle on her foot.   I love how she has learned to be  patient with me.  We have an understanding of each other.  Maybe it’s a girl thing.  I remember feeling the same way with Kaylee.  I love how she loves me to hold her, but a second later she will be just as happy playing and learning something new.  I love how smart she is.  You can see her mind working behind her eyes. 

One Sunday morning a couple of weeks ago, Ady decided to stay awake after her morning feed.  Casey is much more a morning person than I am.  He was nice enough to get up with her.  I easily fell back into a deep sleep.  Before I knew it, I heard a whinny cry in the background.  At first it seemed far, far away.  But the more I woke up, I realized it was coming from in my room.  On the floor, on the opposite side of the bed.  It was my Little Miss staring right at me.  I looked around for Casey.  He wasn’t there.  I was confused…and tired still.  I pulled her up in bed and she greeted me with the biggest smile and a little snuggle.  She was saying mama, mama over and over again.  I realized that she came to find me.  She is crawling and roaming around all over the house, but she hadn’t ever come back in my room looking for me before.  I didn’t even realize that she could put those thoughts together: Mom, in her room, sleeping, in her bed. She was with Casey in the office at the front of the house and she crawled clear to the back.  Casey didn’t even know she was gone.  I love that she knows where to find me when she just needs her mommy.

Enjoy some pictures of my sweet Ady.

oh my gosh I love that little one. What a cute story about the bedroom. Too bad both Brandon and myself need sleep. We aren't very happy when he wakes up early:) She is seriously gorgeous.

Your pictures of her are beautiful. I have the same feelings with Paisley. She just turned 11 months and it just goes by way to fast. I love that she came to find you in your bedroom. What a sweet girl.

Love, love, love the pics. Seriously, those are the cutest pics I've ever seen. If I didnt have to be pregnant I'd have another baby just so you could take their pics!

Those pictures are awesome Krys!!! I love the story about Ady!! So cute!!! I told Nick and he said "She can crawl already? What is Bronson's problem!"

KW said...

Can't believe she is 8 months either...cuz that means Luke is 7 months. CRAZY! That story is so sweet.

Great photos. I love how you changed the background.

I also enjoyed the story about her coming in your room.

WE really are so blessed to have sweet little girls.

Very well written. I feel that my baby is growing up way too fast too and I'm trying to cherish every single moment. Beautiful photos!
