Cloud Nine: Zoe's 9 Month Day

"You strange as angels dancing in the deepest oceans, twisting in the water, you're just like a dream" ~ The Cure

Oh, it's fine being nine. I guess I can deal with it. With the clapping and the nonsensical chatting and the utter cuteness. I wish I could make more time to soak up this month. Never enough hours in the day to cuddle and giggle and sniff. We only have an hour or two at most when I come home from work before you go to bed and it's just not fair. 'Tis the life of a working mama.


You have such a personality, Zo Zo. You're silly and opinionated and affectionate. You're curious and fun-loving and very vocal. You're flirty and confident in Mama's arms, but you're not so sure when out of them. You adore your brother but need your space too. You want to crawl but get very frustrated with not being able to do it, like, now. I'm not going to push the crawling. I'm just going to appreciate the calm before the storm.

You just got over your bajillionth cold and are in such a better mood for it. I wish I could keep the illness at bay and keep you smiling. Those two bottom teeth are like sweet little pearls. Must capture them on film! But you're going to be one tough cookie by the time you hit preschool. At least that's what I keep telling myself.

I love you at nine months and at every month. Happy 9 Month Day, Zoe!


  1. I want some yummy toes! Can't wait to see her!

  2. She's such a cutie! I agree with you on the crawling, enjoy this time now and know that she will begin crawling/walking when she's ready! A started standing up on things now, and I already miss her ability/desire to just sit and look or crawl. Yesterday, I caught her trying to climb the stairs, likely a result of watching her sister. I'm happy with how fast she's going, but it's also a bit sad, you know?
