Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014!

I started off the year 2013 pregnant. I rang in the new year with a glass of fake champagne and a ripped maternity dress. I was a hot. mess.
This year I got to have a few cocktails, didn't feel like a balloon in my outfit, and still got to come home in time to feed our sweet baby for her first nursing of the night. (I'll go into THAT another time...)

Reflecting on 2 0 1 3....
I made it to a couple days short of 42 weeks before Mira finally decided to come out.
In 2013 we had a baby, something that I've always wondered what would be like my whole childhood. I couldn't have imagined her to be as perfect as she is. And I know Adam agrees. 

And I became a mom. I gladly make sacrifices for her, I want to ensure she has the perfect childhood, I just simply want the best for her. 
Each month that has gone by has had its highlights for Mira:

O N E  M O N T H - Mira started smiling at us

T W O  M O N T H S - Started rolling over front to back, and back to front

T H R E E  M O N T H S - She was laughing, babbling, grabbing things, and scooting forward during tummy time. This was the month we knew she was gonna keep us busybusybusy forever.

F O U R  M O N T H S - Giving us sloppy "kisses"

F I V E  M O N T H S - Started sitting up

S I X  M O N T H S - Started solids, started saying words in variations of 'mama', 'dada', 'baba', etc., started breast feeding herself by crouching down, and starting crawling army-crawl style.

S E V E N  M O N T H S - Started full on crawling at full pace and pulling herself up to stand

E I G H T  M O N T H S - Started free standing and got her first tooth! She also weaned herself off of her pacifier.

N I N E  M O N T H S - Took her first steps! And we started finger foods (fun, but completely a shitshow of a mess).

I can't believe in just a few days Mira will be 10 months. That means I'll be having to post another 10 month sticky belly picture, when it feels like just a couple days ago I was doing the 9 month one. I'm going to have to start planning her first birthday party, which is both exciting and sad at the same time.

Thank you for being good to us, 2013. We got so lucky with Mira, she couldn't be a better baby. Adam and I have never been closer or more in love, and we have our sweet little girl to thank for that. Here's to another good year filled with health, happiness, adventures, and good luck. Hello 2014!
