The little light of our life is officially nine months. We spent the actual day out camping (post below) and are welcoming the Seattle sun.

The past two days she has had one 30 minute nap and has required 2 hours of coaxing to sleep at night with many waking during the night. Yesterday I said to my sister "I am ready to sell her on ebay for maybe a buck fifty". Then today there was a 45 minute nap in the morning, two hours in the afternoon, much giggling all day and right to bed. I'm here now enjoying the NYT on-line and a glass of wine. Who knows what the next moment will bring but isn't she gorgeous.
