eLLe - 9 months

Dear Luciya,


You turned 9 months old today! You inspire me in so many ways. In celebration of the beauty of your nature and the stunning grace of your rapid development, I have decided to dedicate this month's posts in a series of haikus.


Good Night, Sleep Tight
Peacefully sleeping
No more Screamface Sobby Sue
We can all rest now

Nurse-made
Horizontal, yes
But now you like to suckle
From up above, too

Jabbertalkie
Say mama, mama
With little lips and sweet voice
Is Daddy jealous?


Strong

Pull myself up, yes!
Couches, knees, and tables too
Bounce a baby jig

Plllthh!
Raspberry blower
Show how pleased as punch you are
Grateful saliva

Scientist
What's that little thing?
Pick it up with wee pincers
Examine by taste

Goody Goody Gumdrops
No pearly whites yet
Even though you don't have teeth
You bite my nipple!


Nightcrawler

Little sleep-sitter
Wake up, sit up, try to crawl
Back down, sleep now, hush

Mullet Over
Mullets rock my world
Yours is soft and whisper-fine
Idaho Baby

Love, in a Face
Shiny open smiles
You glisten with happiness
Such a pretty girl


I Love You, Luciya!
Love, adore, inhale
Cuddle warming amazement
Totally in awe

Love,
Mama

Haiku from Tutu

Asleep in my arms
your tiny breaths make sweet sounds
like tiptoes in snow

Your wide chocolate eyes
reflect wisdom much older
than meer months can know
