Rumer Willis is celebrating a new mom milestone!

On Friday, the singer and actress, 35, marked her baby daughter Louetta Isley's nine-month birthday.

"9 months in 🌱 … 9 months out. How did that go so fast…" she captioned an Instagram post. She included a carousel featuring photos of herself pregnant along with sweet footage of the back of her daughter's head as Louetta cooed, crawled around and played in her crib.

"I love you big girl," Willis told her daughter as the little one sat in her crib, surrounded by toys, in the last video.

Willis and her partner, Derek Richard Thomas, welcomed their daughter on April 18, 2023, announcing the happy news on Instagram at the time.

The Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood actress — who is the oldest daughter of actors Bruce Willis and Demi Moore — has been open about her journey into parenthood with the public.

Earlier this month on Bumpsuit’s new podcast, The Village, she revealed that she's been trying elimination communication with her daughter, which is the process of focusing on your baby's nonverbal cues to determine when they need to go to the bathroom instead of using diapers.

"It's incredible. It's so validating," Willis told Bumpsuit founder Nicole Trunfio of the process. "We got a little potty. Derek even has a little potty song he plays for her." Willis then proceeded to sing the song.

"Babies have bodily awareness, so they don't want to poop themselves," she continued. "We train them out of it by putting them in diapers and look, there's no way I can catch all of her pees. They don't make a cue for it, or maybe they do if you're super, super aware. But I try to get as many as I can and it's awesome. I think it's so great."
