Lucy Clementine, 9 Months

Our Lucy girl turned 9 months old last week, which means that she has been outside of the womb as long as she was in it. Life has changed drastically since she entered it in the best of ways. We have lived through sleep deprivation, a child who had reflux and cried pretty much all the time, have cried our own tears of joy and laughed uncontrollably at small things that we find so hilarious. We are her biggest fans. When she learns something new we cheer so obnoxiously loud and give her so many hugs and kisses. We are THOSE parents. And we don't plan on changing that any time soon. I want her to know we always have her back and we will always be there to cheer her on. We have been stretched thin, and in turn our cups have been filled to the brim. There's so much love I never knew I had to give until she existed. She's my best girl friend, and spending my days with her are some of my favorite life memories I will cherish forever and ever. 

 

We are just so grateful. I could go on, but instead, here's some photos I took to commemorate her turning 9 months old.
