Happy Belated 9-month and 6-Month Birthday, Olivia!

I wrote this post three months ago, when Olivia turned 6 months old. But I never posted it since the pictures were still on my camera. So now I am retroactively publishing my birthday wishes to Olivia 😀
On Monday she turned 9 months old, so happy 9-month burthday, too!

So here is the original post:

On Sunday, Olivia turned 6 months old. I can barely believe it. It seems like so little time has passed. I mean, we haven’t even sent out her birth announcements yet! (!?!?!?!)

Olivia, you are one amazing little girl. You just completely melt my heart. It has been fascinating watching your personality develop from a newborn to today. And boy, do you ever have a personality! I am so excited and curious to see how you will grow and change from here. I wish I could slow down time and enjoy it to the fullest. A few more hours of sleep would probably help that too.

But regardless of how fast you grow up, I will enjoy every step of the way. I want to be there for everything. I promise I will try to let you do things on your own. I am very much enjoying helping you out with them now while you still want me too.

Please, please, please try to enjoy these days while you still have a full day to nap. It will be gone before you know it! And it would make it a million times easier for me to play with you and be patient if I could get a couple extra hours of sleep, too. But I know you don’t understand or care about that. You are so curious about the world around you, and would rather be out practicing rolling and scooting around. Discovering all of the crinkle-paper out there to discover. Testing your new tooth on everything in sight.

Happy 6-month birthday my darling daughter!

Love, Mom


We were also lucky to have friends visit us from Canada on her birthday, so I tried to make a small “party” for her while they were here. I even made a cake!

Unfortunately, Olivia fought her naps all day, and didn’t sleep a single minute. Our friends didn’t arrive until around 4:30, and Olivia passed out an hour later. It was the earliest I have ever seen her go to sleep for the night! She was completely exhausted.

Happy Half-Birthday from all of us!

So, unfortunately she missed her birthday cake, and all the photos. But you know what? a good night’s sleep really is a much better birthday present. Or at least, it’s one *I* would be happy to get!
