There was snow on the ground when we took baby Mia's nine month pictures, but she stayed nice and warm inside! We were talking during a clothing change about how she has seemed to grow up so much between this session and her last, at six months old. She had gotten some teeth in that she would show off to us when she grinned, and she was pulling up on things like a pro (though not quite able to stand on her own yet.) And she was very ready to explore, so her momma got a good workout in by setting little Mia down for a photo and then carrying her back to that spot when she would try to crawl away. :) But all our efforts paid off and we were able to get these sweet pictures of this sweet girl!
