Oy. I’m late by a week! Life is crazy these days. Work is at its busiest point all year as we prep for school end close and start up the summer season. And gone are the days where I can set down little Lo and do something productive for half an hour. My little baby is moving around so quickly and fearlessly- her new trick is to follow me into the kitchen. So we spend a lot of time on the floor with her, playing with new toys and practicing ‘be nice’ to the puppies. So far Levi is pretty unaffected- he just does his own thing, stopping by for a quick sniff once in awhile. Puck though? Puck and Lo are going to be best friends, we can tell already. When she cries, he’s there immediately. When she’s on the ground, he’s lying next to her and he’s been so good as she starts to climb on him and give ‘kisses’. (I just play oblivious to the obvious dog hair she’s ingested thus far.)
So we meet again, monthly check-in. Again with the cliches, but where has the time gone? My baby is now forreal closer to a year old than she is to her birth. And, oh, how she’s grown. I can’t believe how much has changed just in the last month! Miss Lo’s becoming more and more of a little person every day. She’s showing us pieces of her personality daily, and while I am so excited to see the person she becomes, I’m a little terrified too. It’s probably no surprise that Jeremy and I have a daughter who is strong-willed, opinionated, and independent. But I never thought we would be dealing with these traits at a mere 7 months of age.
