Nine In, Nine Out

Iris is 9 1/2 months old, which means she's been out longer than she was in.


There was a while, a long while, when she wasn't so sure about life on the outside.


Where the only place she was happy was curled up tight in a sling.  I was afraid to wash it, lest I be left without it for 2 hours with a crying baby.


This baby whose feet rarely touched down during her first months of life has recently taken her first steps.  Now we savor those moments when she wants to be up because most of the time, she wants to be down.


For a baby who couldn't go more than a minute or two without mommy, she now has quite the independent streak.


Once called our little miss, then our miss-riss, our word nerd Indigo recently labeled her our miss-creant.


She may have a propensity for getting into mischief...

  4. She's ADORABLE. Such much personality in her expressions. And I LOVE kids who have a propensity for getting into mischief. ;-)
