For Mother’s Day weekend, we went to the Indianapolis Zoo with my old friend, Peggy, and her son, Joey. We all had lots of fun, despite the chilly temp, and spotty rain showers. Peggy and I had a free Mother’s Day cupcake :) Faith and Joey loved the animals and scenery. It was a great 1st Mothers Day! ♥
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 … 10 MONTHS OLD TODAY! YAY! :)
I can’t believe that in just a couple months she will be 1 year old, and I will be weaning her from breastfeeding. She has 5 teeth now – 3 on top, and two on bottom. She is very close to taking her first steps now, too. She balances perfectly on her feet for brief moments without support. She likes looking at people at the store, and says to them, “Hey!” She loves music. Any music. All music. Even if there is a commercial on TV and she hears a tune, she stops whatever she’s doing to look up and listen, and clap her hands.
These are two of her favorite videos. She can watch them over, and over again. All day long. In this first video below, when she hums, Faith tries to hum along. She is just so in-love with music!
She crawls everywhere, and loves to explore. She tries to open all the drawers. She is constantly trying to play with Rocky’s dog dishes. She helps me out when I fold laundry by pulling all the socks out of the dryer and flinging them on the floor. She helps me with dishes by pulling out the silverware. She literally squeals with delight when Daddy comes home from work. She kicks, and tries to pry herself loose from me the moment she sees him walk through the door. She is a little person with a big personality :)
In just a couple months, she will be blowing out her first candle. And in just a couple months Aaron and I will decide if we should bring another baby into the world. Wow. Time is seriously flying by. Too fast.
In just a couple months, I will also be looking for a job (daycare, or preschool) where I could take Faith with me. In just a couple months… we will be preparing for lots of changes.
Motherhood… It’s a wild ride. A fast ride. I am loving every moment of it ♥
