Wow. 10 months.


Leala is 10 months old today.. I can't believe it.. She really isn't a "baby" anymore. I really can't say "I just had a baby" anymore. She is almost a year old. In 2 months, we'll be having a birthday party. That seems unreal. It seems like just a few weeks ago, I had 5 months to plan for the this. I am happy to see what is next for my little girl, but of course, part of me is sad and missing those baby days.. The coos and first smiles. The first bath. The first time she rolled over. The first time she had cereal. The first time she had big people food. The first time she met our families. The first time she was able to sit up on her own. Pull up and stand on her own. Walk with pushing toy. Climb the stairs. Man, it's been a whirlwind. Time has passed by so fast.

I love her so much. I never thought love like this could be possible. One day she was just a distant dream for us.. and now she's here. She's here and thriving.. She's here and calling us Momma and Dada. She's here smiling, laughing, playing, crying, throwing fits, acting shy, getting into things, eating fruits and vegetables... making me the happiest I've ever been.

It's been a long road.. She was over 3 years in the making.. haha.. We wanted her for so long, but had to wait. She's the one that keeps me going on the bad days.. the one who makes the good days good.. The one who makes me smile every day.. She's my love.. my life.. my daughter. I am so thankful to have her. I am so thankful that my husband and I created her. She is a piece of him and I. Part of us both, put together to make a whole new life. She is everything and more than I ever hoped for.

She is absolutely beautiful! That's a great pic of you two..have to love those kind!

I got your comment yesterday on the ears but didn't have your email. Allie didn't really have any symptoms...she was running a low grade fever 99 or so at times but not around the clock and she wasn't sleeping. would pull at the ear though but she had always done that so i didn't think anything of it. Weird..some kids get incredibly fussy when they have ear infections and some you can't tell. So odd how different they are!

Hope the sleepings getting better at night! Last night was about the same here but hoping for better tonight :)
