Elle Turns 9 months

Elle my girl, you're so spunky at the age of 9 mos... your character is really starting to build and there have been days that have gone by where you didn't cry once! I've never experienced such a thing... If I were to choose one word to describe you it would be "peaceful"... I don't know if it's because you're the third and your sister and brother entertain you so well, or if it's simply your spirit. But you're the best! Love, Mommy

Hi Mamas,

If I'm being real with you all, there were definitely a lot of times when I questioned my decision to have 3 and even, at times, regretted the decision! yup, my pregnancy was pretty bad and the adjustment to 3, although smooth, was still really hard... breastfeeding was the hardest it had ever been in all 3 children, we struggled with tongue tie and a really aggressive suck. We struggled through reflux (we knew to get the medicine right away this time but it still takes 3 mos of adjusting to the right dosage). Not to mention the 60 lbs of weight gain!

But this child has been the absolute "icing on the cake" as far as motherhood goes. I cannot imagine having had missed out on this little personality and cuddly bug!
