9 Months Old

My baby girl is 9 months old today! I really cannot believe how fast the past nine months have gone. Ella Olivia is such a sweet girl. She is full of spunk and determination. The past few days have been filled with many attempts at walking. I think we are up to 7-8 steps before the inevitable "plop" on the floor. I can see that my life is about to change. Gone are the days of peacefully laying on her playmat. Nope, no more laying around for this chick! She's off and running. Tearing apart my house. No book on a bookshelf is safe from her hands. Her favorite pasttime is emptying every shelf of it's contents. And we're not talking about gently setting the items on the floor. No, she heartily catapults each object over her shoulder while using her free hand to reach for the next victim.

Seriously, I'm so thankful for this precious gift that's been given to me. I'm excited to see her continue to grow into the person that God has for her to be.

Now I must be off to intervene as she is terrorizing her big sister. :-)
