Cecilia and Mommy: 9 Months

Time is flying and I can't even believe that Cecilia's first birthday is only three months away. She's such a goof with a fun personality. She's definitely a little mischief maker. This month's story will definitely illustrate that.

Story time!
I was lying down in the playroom, not feeling super great. Cecilia was playing nearby and content by herself for the moment. After a few minutes, I realized it was quiet. Too quiet. I looked up and there was no baby in the playroom. I freaked out a little bit and launched myself off the floor, darting out the baby gate that I realized I had left slightly ajar. To my left, I found Cecilia sitting on the landing of our stairs, looking mighty pleased with herself for having escaped and climbed four stairs without supervision. I quickly scooped her up and snuggled her close, trying to calm my racing heart. I suppose this incident is some sort of karma for my own baby escapades.

I want to see the Christmas tree, Mama. 

No Daddy, take the mean Totoro away!

  • All books, but not read to her, she wants to flip the pages by herself
  • Her straw sippy cup - I'm inordinately pleased that she was so receptive to the straw sippy cup.
  • Pears and any mixes with pears in them, still
  • Sitting with Mommy at breakfast time to get bites of blueberries
  • Playing "Where's Cecilia?" (i.e. peek-a-boo) with the curtain next to her changing table
  • Unrolling the toilet paper from the roll (SIGH.)
  • Charlie
  • Babbling
  • Making car noises (b-rrroom)
  • Mister Lamby
  • The Christmas tree 
  • Standing on her own!
  • Climbing the stairs (argh noo, too soon baby, too soon!)

  • Having her nails trimmed - this is a strong hate, and it sounds like the worst form of baby torture
  • Teething - it's the worst.
Basic Baby Stats
  • Weight: 16lbs 9.8oz (+1 lb 9.8 oz)
  • Length: 28.75" (+2.25")
  • Head Circumference: 44.5 cm (+1 cm)

I'm boring this month. I don't have all that much to say except that I feel as if I am being ordered around by a tiny dictator now.
