Audrey 9 months

9 months!

You know that thing the say to make you feel better about your post pregnancy body. “It took you 9 months to grow the baby and your body to change, so it will take just as long for it to recover” Yeah sure it kind of makes you feel a bit better at 8 weeks postpartum. . . but when you are 9 months postpartum and you actually looked better at 8 weeks well then it kinda hurts. ARGHH. Anyway this post isn’t about me.

Little miss Audrey. She is so clever.

She has finally got through a top tooth. Seemed like it was taking it’s good ol’ time to make its appearance.

Her Aunty (my sister in law) who was visiting for 6 weeks over Christmas really hoped to see her walk before she left. I told her at the beginning that it was a long shot due to her age. Well on the night we were giving her a farewell, Audrey decided she would stand up, let go and take a step or two from her Aunty towards her Dad!

She is doing lots of standing without holding lasting about 3 to 5 seconds.

She also enjoys clapping and pointing her finger.

Still trying to work on her holding her own bottle.

Her hair is growing rapidly.

I see her smiles ALL DAY LONG yet, pull out the camera, and have the hardest time trying to capture them.

Photo shoots are exhausting! Mum kept yelling “NO!”, “Stop that!”, “Don’t move” and, of course, screeching “SMILE!!!!!!!” But I march to the beat of my own drum and I wasn’t taking any of that nonsense.

    I sooooo wish snapping one’s life was the rage when my daughters were little. And that our cameras could take decent pics! My girls are 24 and 22. The younger celebrating her birthday today….so I was reminiscing. These pics of Audrey are so precious… She is adorable and I envy this pictorial record you are creating for her and yourself. X kl

      Thank you. I just need to be more diligent about actually getting them printed out.
      For 21st bday party pics of me from my youth it is only slim pickings. The presschool photo or the one of me on the potty. Or the one with my stack hat helmet LOL.
      I hope I keep it up. (Especially with the future second child)
      Happy Birthday to your daughter.

    Such a clever little girl, can’t believe she is standing and attempt walking already!
