nueve meses

mom can i eat paper?
they really have gone by in a blink these past nine months. so hard to believe arlo has been with us for as long as she was in my belly. and now thanks to blair in another blink i will look around and have an eight year old, ten year old and 12 year old!! oh my. but i really must thank arlo for adding a sweetness to our life. i like to moan about time and clutter and all kinds of things that i blame on having three little ones underfoot, but it is really all for show. i cant imagine not seeing that sweet little face smiling at me in the morning, or seeing eliot and collette crowded around her arguing over who gets the next hug. so my love, thank you. and thank you for three poopy blowouts in one day. you do have flair sweet thing.

oh yes, nine months is a wonderful and reflective age. no longer super needy. mobility takes over and smiles, giggling and exploring food becomes a joyful part of every day. yeah the poops get bigger and grosser. thanks for the reminders and I do think about the age and how the playful innosence(sp?) seems to change by the day/month/year. Sweet Arlo! I do love her name. makes me want to sing "take you ridin' in my car-car" over and over!!

Okay. Crying. We've been going through old pictures of our now 21-month-old this week, so i've been feeling very sappy about family these days. Thanks though for the beautiful picture of your Arlo -- it's very sweet that you appreciate how lucky you are.

Nine month olds are the kind I want to eat up. I moan about all the same things, don't think I'll ever actually find a balance. But I was just telling Peter that if something has to give, it just has to give, they are most important to me in life. All of life's other things can wait.

Except for blog friends...
