"doting parent"

So maybe I am just that, a doting parent but i think i have an overly smart child.

She rolled over one way at 3 weeks the other at 3 months. She scooted at 5 months. Crawled and sat up by her self @ 6 months . Started pulling up at 7 1/2 months, at 8 months she was cruising (walking along furniture) and now at 9 months she is about to take her first steps. She is saying "dada", "mama" & "yah". I just can't believe how big she has gotten. She drinks outta a sippie cup now. She only gets a bottle before bed when I rock her. She sleeps from 830/900pm-830/900am...YUP! she sleeps 12 hours!!!! Then when she wakes up She has a HUGE light up the room smile on her face, its beautiful, then' she gets cereal made w.jucie for breakfast and 6oz of formula. After all that sleep she's a hungry girl. Then like clock work 2-2.5 hours after she wakes up she's ready for a nap! I love it... she's so schedule driven. Just like her mommy! Thats my shower time, unless I get up first. Then she gets up after about an hour and she gets 4 ozs and then we play or go run errands. She LOVES the car now. FINALLY! LoL she used to hate it. She gets lunch around 2. She gets a veggie and a fruit. She eats ALL of both (stage 1 foods) and usually 4oz, about to move to stage 2... her pediatrician said its okay. Still no teeth. So no meats till she gets some. Then if we're home its nap time... if we're at daddy's (Matt's) she plays till about 330/430 then takes a nap. She's such a good sleeper! Dinner is at 600... Same as lunch a veggie and fruit and formula...bath time is around 8...She is such a water baby! She LOVES bath time usually out around 830 in jammies and rocked to bed and thats when she gets her only bottle of the day!

She loves dancing! She loves to give George and Squirt kisses. Basically if you say "Give so and so a kiss" she will. Such a loveable baby. Always happy. Loves to play. She is such a daddy's girl. I look at her and I just realize how blessed i am. She is just amazing. Her smile lights up a room. She has the best personality, I am just in awe over how amazing she is. She learns so quickly. I think she is overly smart. She loves "Little Einstein's" NOT "Baby Einstein's" she gets all excited when i put the DVD in, we have 4... thx yall- im ready to shoot myself, jk.

She does this new thing if you say "how big is Emmy?" she will throw her hands above her head and laugh. Its adorable! She learns soo quick. You just have to show her how to do something once or twice and BOOM she knows how to do it. It just amazes me. Sometimes I just can't believe I made that little miracle. When she comes up to me and gives me a kiss it just melts my heart! or when she looks at me and says "mama" my eyes fill up with tears b/c that little one syllable word makes all the hard times worth it. I love to just sit back and watch her learn and explore. Children really are Gods little gifts and I couldnt ask for anything more.
