Be Still My Heart

Playing dress up!

My sweet baby girl is now 9 months old… and she isn’t so little anymore.

She is learning and exploring so many things that I can hardly keep up with her! She is crawling and standing and sprouting 7 little ‘toophers’. She’s a biter. . . She is already infatuated with shoes… Oh dear.

She is a “dada”‘s girl – she has been saying his name for weeks and simply laughing at us when we ask her to say “mama”… Finally she did. Trailing behind me calling for me to pick her up – “baba! baba! BABA!”

Be still my heart.

I’m a baba. =)

She took her first step a few days ago – and has been practicing ever since… We gasp for everyone to look when we see her start to waddle or tap her foot up and down, and she lights up with a smile and giggle. “Yay!” she says, and claps excitedly… She also likes to clap along during worship at church. – She loves music and the only time she seems to sit still during the day is when I start to sing – then she presses her chubby little cheeks up against mine and sings right along with me. . .

“dada dada da… i lahlu dada”

Be still my heart! . . . Our baby’s growing up.
