As of today, I'm all caught up on posting my backlog of Piper's baby sessions. The location for her 9-month session was a no-brainer: outside in her first snowstorm. It was dark and snowing during these photos, and she had no idea what to make of it all. Mostly she just looked around in confusion, but she knew I wanted some smiles or I'd never put the camera down.
As usual, I can't remember anything that happened during this month and didn't write down any details. Poor third child. My Instagram feed tells me we celebrated Christmas, went on some hikes, played around the house and had a continuous and stacked string of colds. Piper continued to hone the following skills: eating puffs without choking and spitting them up, speed crawling, escaping up the stairway, babbling and making everyone laugh with her impressive baby jokes (for example, after she saw her sisters put underwear on their heads and run around laughing hysterically, she found a—thankfully clean—laundry basket a few days later, tossed a pair of underwear on her head and laughed and laughed until everyone noticed).
We went out for another play session in the snow as the sun was setting.
