Nine Month Update | Little Love

 Time obviously hasn't stood still or frozen and Sophia is growing more and more each day. She is exploring the world around her and constantly studying new things and what seems like she is wanting to figure out how things work. If she is anything like her daddy, she will get to the point in taking things apart but hopefully she'll know how to put it back together, haha.

Her sleep digression hasn't improved but it is partially our fault as well for not maintaining our bedtime routine after our vacation. I have to be consistent and get that back going before expecting her to sleep better at night. 

Her first little tooth started to poke through and you can feel the roughness at the gums but still cannot see it. 

We have also started teaching Sophia sign language in the last month. Right now we are focusing on teaching her to sign "eat" "more" and "all done" and so far she just yells as soon as we sign any of those with the verbal word as if she is saying just feed me woman! haha. I plan to also introduce the sign for "milk" so we can eventually tell the difference for when she wants table food or a nursing session.

Speaking of, we have gone NINE whole months of exclusive breastfeeding. I remember during pregnancy I was hoping to just make it to a year of breastfeeding but honestly if your willing to, there isn't a need to hope, just do it. Granted there are some mothers with problems such as nursing strikes or low supply (which is not as often as everyone makes it seem) or some other issue but it is possible. If you are having any issues, please PLEASE reach out to a lacatiaion consultant or for simple questions, I am willing to help as much as possible and where I can and can point you in the direction you may need to go.

We love you more than we could every express and are so proud of the little baby girl you are. You are so smart and so adventrous and curious. I hope those characteristics stay with you as you grow older. I tell you every month month but I hope there is never a day in your life that you doubt how loved you are and most importantly I pray you rely on the Lord's love as His is everlasting. You have taught us so much these past nine months. We love you stinkbutt.
