There is no doubt that she has changed so much in the last nine months and even in the last nine days. She is on the go and into everything. She is expanding her vocabulary and working hard at feeding herself. My baby is quickly growing up.
At the same time, my daughter still does not sleep. Perhaps with the coming of nine months we will find the strategies to help all of us get better sleep.
I'm grateful for the number nine that seems so symbolic today. I'm grateful for these months watching my daughter grow. I'm grateful to say, while it may have been some of the most challenging months I've been through, it is also by far the most rewarding months. I'm grateful for the support I have received from family and friends. I'm grateful for my daughter's happy personality. I'm grateful to have the opportunity to grow into a mom and to spend so much time with her over the last nine months.
What does nine represent to you? Is there any cycles coming to a close in your life? Are there new cycles you see beginning?
May today remind us that with everything that ends there is also something new beginning. May we find closure where needed and support along the way. Have a beautiful day!
