ok, so someone has officially lived in this great big world now as long as they lived inside my belly!

on st. patty's day, jia turned 9 months old!

all the sudden it's starting to feel like i have more of a child than a baby! she's super mobile, crawling around all over the place, climbing up on things, and starting to cruise a little.

and one day before she turned 9 months, she said her first intentional word...and it was "mama"! does this mean that i win? ;) probably her favorite noise to make is to say "dada" over and over again, but her father wants to be called "papa". plus this was different...the other sounds she says for fun, but when she said mama you could tell she meant me. even her papa was there and agreed! She also tries to wave bye bye now!

anyways, it's like she's reached a whole new level suddenly of mimicry, and understanding some cause and effect. if feels like her developments are increasing exponentially now... i'm afraid she'll be passing me up soon! haha.

as she grows i feel both sad to see the baby go away, but also happy as i love seeing her learn new things!

so over the past few weeks, two of my very dear friends have both brought some amazing bundles of joy into the world!

i'm over the moon excited for them. seriously it's hard to contain! haha. the early days with a newborn are just so crazy and incredible. both terrifying, and full of wonder. it's basically like falling head over heels in love and having no idea which way is up.

next to a newborn, at 8.5 months jia looks almost like a toddler now! haha. it's crazy what a difference just a few months makes in the life of a baby. it has gotten me to reminiscing back to when she would just fit into the crook of my arm.

first pic of our family! can you believe i'm just now going through the pics that were on our actual camera?! mom fail! wow...there's no tired like what you feel right after a long labor. boy do i look it! yikes!

holy heartburn! that chunky monkey had a lot of hair!!

i miss the days that have flown by, but i'm so in love with the person i'm getting to know and who she is becoming. this is such a fun time. motherhood has definitely turned me all sentimental. i wish i could just hold her forever. i'm wrapped around my little girl's finger in a way i never had dreamed. it has really taught me to appreciate the amazing treasures from heaven than children are.

so here's to raising these treasures together amongst friends!
have fun getting to know your little ones and falling in love all over again!
