Cecilia: 15 Months

Cecilia's personality becomes more and more evident with each passing month. She thrives on routine and will intentionally do things that I forget to do when she's understood an established pattern. Everything must be just so and in it's proper place. Often in the morning when we come down to breakfast, she sees that the tray of her high chair is drying in the bottom rack of the dishwasher and she will immediately go to it, pick it up and bring it to me so that I can put it where it belongs. I'm hopeful that she'll keep this organizational skill as she gets older!

mama, why must we do this?
mama, this is boring. 
smile? mama, I think you meant to say "eat your toes!"
