Jess just turned 9 months old. To use that old cliche, where did the time go?
More pressingly, where did this tiny little person go??
She somehow became this new, opinionated, noisy, happy, inquisitive person!
It’s hard to believe that she’s now been outside of me longer than she was inside of me. Which, because I am, in fact, pedantic, happened a few weeks ago. Jess was born at 38 weeks gestational age, or 36 weeks actual existence. It took 36 weeks to go from a couple of cells to an 8 pound baby, and another 8 months to become a 17 pound human being. It’s really, really crazy to watch.
Babies. Man, I cannot even believe these pictures are of the same human, so close together. Just crazy.
