My sweet Rylie,
I can’t believe you’re already 9 months old. Time is flying but at the same time I know that I have soaked up every moment I get with you. You have developed quite the personality – full of sweetness, love, joy, and liveliness. You love to talk (something you get from me) and sing (you get that from Daddy). I love sitting with you and listening to your stories. You tell the best kinds. Your facial expressions crack us up and you laugh so easily at the world around you.
You are a very content baby and you can play by yourself but you prefer to be with others. I absolutely love it when you reach for me or grab my finger when I’m sitting next to you and watch you as you pull it to yourself and look at me as if you’re saying, “come Mommy, come play with me!”
Daddy tells me all the time how smart you are, and I’d have to agree. You catch on to things so quickly. Full of wonder and curiosity, you’re always up for exploring and trying something new. Especially if it means you get to spend time with your family.
Rylie, you bring us so much joy! You have such a gift. Ever since the day you were born, you’ve made people smile and laugh.
You are my best friend Rylie-girl, and I love you bunches!
