We’re three days early with Dot’s 9 month pictures because, well, when you have a day with good weather in January, you jump on it! I’d planned to have at least 3 other shoots to share on the blog this week and next, but we’ve been rained out and snowed out and whatnot… I figured the regular blog-stalkers wouldn’t mind if Dot’s 9 month post was a few days early. 🙂
The bigger Dorothy gets, the bigger her personality gets. In these pictures, you’ll see her playing Patty Cake, showing us how big she is, attempting to escape, and playing with her sweet rocking horse.
In addition to becoming more and more playful and fun, Dorothy’s also getting BIG! She weighs nearly 20 pounds, has three and a half teeth, and wants to walk SOOOO bad. I’m quite afraid that her 10 or 11 month pictures will be much harder to take, because she’ll be fully on the move. 🙂
It’s been quite an undertaking to devote to doing a little photoshoot every month of Dorothy’s first year, but man… what a blessing. I’m so grateful that we have the time, equipment, and necessary skill to be able to capture her first year this way. It’s going to make an awesome little album!
Rather than saving my very favorite shot from our session for the end, I’m going to shake up my routine and START with my favorite. I just can’t help it… this picture is PERFECT!
If you say, “Dorothy… how big are you?”, our sweet girl throws her hands up in the air and squeals. SO BIG!
Once she learned how to clap, it became her favorite thing in the world to do. She now applauds herself dozens of times a day.
I need to get her another pair of Chucks… she’s almost outgrown these!
This is another favorite of the morning… Dorothy is prone to frequent escape attempts!
We did another little mini-set of pictures so that we could capture Dorothy’s love for her rocking horse. She sits up there and bounces and rocks and sings along with the song he plays. She really adores this toy, and will crawl all over the house to find it if it’s ever moved out of the living room.
Sweet baby girl, I can’t believe how big you’re getting. Sometimes I want to stop time, but then I’d miss out on the fun that is each new day with you.
