Today is the 16th of October. And I looked again and thought to myself...wow. Courtney how did you become 11 months all of a sudden? I told you were not allowed to grow up, that you had to stay my 'forever baby girl' Coco.
And today, you are growing in three more teeth, still breastfeeding (so much for weaning hey Coco!) you are practically walking, you cruise, you climb up the stairs, and you have figured out how to get back down the stairs, you high five, you growl, you suck your fingers, you touch your ear (just like your big brother did when he was your age!) you have a family that adores you! You smile so big, and you show off your dimple (just like your Daddy!) you are growing HAIR?! that is different LOL. And you are also a great traveller! You adapt well! Must be because you almost have to being that you are number six.
You are a self-feeder, you love your sibs, and they love you up a storm! (maybe they could stop squeezing you so hard!!) Oh how they love you. Oh how we love you.
I am finding it hard to believe that next month on this same day we will all be singing happy birthday to you as we help you blow out your first birthday candle.
I love you more and more as the days pass, and the months of the calendar flip over. I am so madly in love with you. You bring me so much joy Courtney. You Miss Smiley, are a love.
