Batter my heart, three-personed God, for you As yet but knock, breathe, shine, and seek to mend; That I may rise, and stand, o’erthrow me, and bend Your force to break, blow, burn, and make me new. I, like an usurped town, to another due, Labour to admit you, but Oh, to no end. Reason, your viceroy in me, me should defend, But is captived, and proves weak or untrue. Yet dearly I love you, and would be loved fain, But am betrothed unto your enemy: Divorce me, untie or break that knot again, Take me to you, imprison me, for I, Except you enthrall me, never shall be free, Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.
OK, so I don’t do this often, but I entered my kid in one of these photo contests. I would be totally honored if you voted for her ❤
You have been out of belly for as long as you were in it! I rub my eyes in disbelief over the fact that you have grown so quickly and so beautifully.
You are spunky, funny, sweet, and incredibly smart.
You like to growl, giggle, make faces, and play hard.
You are going to the doctor today, so we’ll see how much you weigh and how tall you are. You wear size 3 diapers, 6-12 month onesies, 9-12 month pants, and 6-12 month shoes, which are still a bit big on your tiny foot. You just might take after mama and her child sized foot.
In the last month, you learned to crawl, to sit yourself up, and to pull up to standing for several seconds. You haven’t really picked up any new words, still just mama and dada, but I think you were trying to say Gus last night, or Guh I should say, while you were playing with him.
I’ve been teaching you a few signs, but you haven’t signed back yet although you seem to act like you know what they mean.
You are still just eating breastmilk, fruits, veggies, and cereals.

when we tell you no or take something away from you
You are an absolute delight, my dear. Keep shining, smiling, and learning. You are a special one for sure.
