Growth Spurt

this little lady. my goodness, how did she get to be ten months old already?
london is so rarely a baby these days. she’s got eight teeth and a full head a hair, which just makes her look like a toddler. in the last two weeks she has started crawling, waving, clapping, responding to her name, moving from crawling to sitting, and saying “mama” and “dada” with purpose.
i am watching my baby speed away from me, reaching out for the next thing she wants.
she’s friendly and joyful and oh so determined to get what she’s after.
london loves books, her babydolls, and mostly loves whatever cruz happens to be playing with at the moment. she giggles when we hold her upside down.
it’s only in the middle of the night that she feels like my small baby again. after she’s nursed, and is laying on me with her arms above her head, i kiss her milky lips, and for a moment i have my newborn back.
