9 months

yesterday this little babycakes turned 9 months old. 
dear sweet ruby, 
these are my favorite things about you...
your infectious laugh
& incredibly mellow disposition
that said, also smitten with your feisty and stubborn spirit 
(which will serve you well against your big sister)
the way you flip and roll around on the floor like a little fish
the way you wriggle your little body and head around when you are happy
your love of snuggling at any hour of the day or night
the sound of you plotting silliness with your sister

i maybe don't love the fact that your love of snuggling means you still wake up in the very wee hours of 3 or 4 a.m. to eat, 
or that your feistiness means that you can scream full throttle 
for hours on end in the middle of the night, 
or that your sister love means that the two of you don't nap but instead have a giggle fest.

can't believe you you have been with us for almost a year.
{love you completely}
