9 months old

Looking a little sleepy here...

Eden has fuzzy, blondy, with a hint of auburn, hair. Elfy ears.

One tooth on the bottom.

I couldn't wait for Fall for many reasons but one of them was this dress. Red corduroy with little dots, perfect for her first day of "school" at co-op.

Eden crawls, eats everything off the floor,
makes a bah bah bah sound imitating Daniel with her hand to her mouth,
waves her arms and shouts happily at anyone who shouts and waves their arms happily at her.

Eden loves her Kitty,

to feed herself bits of sweet potato or cooked apple pieces,

to be with her mommy,

or daddy,

but Mercy or Daniel or Michael will do in a pinch as long as Kitty is near.

Eden sleeps nicely in her crib for her morning nap, afternoon nap and at night for which we are all thankful. She is learning that screeching like a young pterydactyl doesn't get desired results. She is learning to sign "More" but seems to prefer saying "ma ma ma". She says "da da da" at Daniel and Daddy, both. She says, "Ah dah ah dah" when I sign "All Done" at the end of a meal. She is pulling up and climbing and getting so big. A few of the kids say they have seen her stand all by herself for a few seconds.

Still under a year old, when we remember back to last year at this time, I was still pregnant with this baby whom we didn't yet know. What a joy to know you, Eden, and to have you here with us!

She is precious, Rebecca. And so well loved by all of you.

And you, Rebecca? You're a *wonderful* mama. You have such a demanding job and yet you are doing it with such grace. Bless you, friend. May God continue to give you the energy, perseverance, wisdom, strength and laughter needed for your role as mother to all of these dear ones.

OH PRECIOUS EDEN! I am a year behind on your blog, Rebecca, but loving all the updates on every kid, and especially this sweet, sweet girl who I didn't get to meet. :)
