I know I say this with every baby, but the time just goes by so unbelievably fast. One moment, they're tiny and cradled in your arms and the next they're flossing their own teeth and watching star wars. they grow up so fast. Just last week Violet stood up in her crib and said mama and I basically wanted to lay her back down and say not yet! stay little a bit longer for me!
But here we are at 7 months already and she is oh so eager to be climbing and walking and getting into everything, there is a whole lot of crawling going on around here these days! She is a very calm baby and is quite content just hanging out and watching her brother and sisters and I all day. I've never really had to think about entertaining her! So even as these days and weeks go by a bit too fast there are these sweet little moments I want to tuck away in my heart and always remember...
like when I'm rocking her and she nuzzles her head against my neck and I just stop and breathe in her sweet baby scent
or when she reaches up for my face with her warm little hands in the morning
how she scrunches up her nose when she's laughing
and squeals when naomi rolls the ball to her
how she isn't interested in baby food at all
and is happiest in the morning
and especially how she makes the most perfect little lunch date we've ever had.
we are so blessed to have her!
I love this little person.
