Blythe, 9 months

Blythe is nine month old! (Well she technically turned nine months old on June 10th but here we are, 4 days late. oops.) One of the first thoughts I had as we approached nine months with our baby girl is that Blythe has now been out in world for as long as she was in my belly. It's crazy thought and while I felt like everything changed so much from week to week during pregnancy, it seems like every single day with Blythe bring about something new.

Tatum, 3 Years Old

Dearest Princess Tatum,
Today you are three. (I might be about a week late, but close enough) It may not seem like a big birthday to you, but it is. I feel like you were just my little baby yesterday... And now? You’re becoming a big girl. Your personality shines through more and more every day. And oh how I love that personality, even when you show some attitude. I am in awe of the human you are becoming. You have the most amazing imagination. You light up any room you enter and I am already so proud of you. I’m sad that you’re growing up so fast, but I am also LOVING watching you grow up. I know you will do great things. 
On your 3rd birthday I want you to remember this: I love you so so very much.
Happy Birthday!
This year has been such a blessing. Tatum became a big sister. She is so loving toward her sister Blythe, and is moms best helper. 
This year Tatum really has become a big girl. She is now potty trained (Yeah!!) and is continuing to sleep great in her big girl bed. She loves playing kitchen and uses her imagination everyday. She will never pass on Mr. Softee ice cream, and will listen for the truck to go through the neighborhood. We were able to dedicate both Tatum and Blythe at our church this year and it was so sweet to see Tatum so excited.

I can't wait to see what this next year bring us. I pray that you will continue to grow into a kind, compassionate, confident, generous, intelligent, witty and thoughtful little girl.

Blythe, 8 months

8 months old! I feel like this is the point where I should be getting teary about my baby being 2/3 of a year old, but you know what? I’m just happy. I’m enjoying every age and stage as it comes. Instead of rushing to get to the next milestone, I’m heeding the advice I’ve received and just enjoying Blythe, as she is at this very moment.

What’s she been up to this past month? Well…

She loves jumping and pulling herself to standing on the furniture. I think she’s going to like to dance, just like her sister Tatum.

She has fully transitioned to bottles and gets 5 a day. She is an adventurous eater and usually eats 2 meals a day.

She likes to bang things together and slap the top of surfaces. 

She laughs all the time and it just makes be smile.

Blythe is such a joy. How I got blessed with such a happy girl is beyond me, but I’m so grateful.

Happy 8 months, baby Blythe!
