Dearest DD -
Sorry, sorry for the delayed letter(s). This fall, life has been just whirling by. I am really excited to get caught up soon!
Month 7 was a lot of fun – you are a lot of fun! You are so chill and good – if you are not too tired or hungry or being held , you usually won’t make a peep!
You like swinging – the weather was still hot in October, so we were able to get some park time in. When you get in the swing at first, you are a little scared, but once you realize it is fun, you are just fine. Sometimes I put you and JJ back to back, so riding tandem in the swing. It is really cute!
You love your belly and loved the skydiver move – on belly, with hands and legs off ground – everyone commented on your strong core! Here you are trying on a fire helmet, getting ready for JJ’s 2nd birthday!
You were so ready to crawl! We call you our little bulldog when you are on all fours. When you hit this point, we knew it was only a matter of weeks before you started crawling!
You have endured so many photo shoots in these 7 months. Check out this one from your 6 month shoot. I really love this photo of your maternal side of the family. Everyone loves you and your brother so so much! So amazing that we are in Texas so that you and your brother can see PoPo, GongGong, and Auntie a lot! (Thanks, Boom)
You are loving playgroup – and so am I! I love that you have your own set of friends, and not just JJ’s friends. And I really like all the ladies we have in playgroup – everyone lives all over the city (generally inside the loop, or close to the loop), so it is kinda fun to explore – especially since we meet during the day so traffic isn’t bad.
You love your brother most of all. It really is adorable how much you love watching him and being near him. Pretty soon you guys will be able to actually play together!
Thank you for always having a smile for me. I love being your mama so much – you made having 2 babies under the age of 2 as easy as possible (even though 2 kids is a game changer – not double as hard, try exponentially as difficult!). Dada thinks we are twinks – I am honored to be put in a category with someone as cute as you!
