Cecilia and Mommy: 10 Months

My favorite moment from this month happened on a Thursday afternoon. We were hanging out in her play area and she was playing independently while I sat on the other side of the room, just watching her baby antics. She deliberately crawled over to one of her musical toys and pressed the button then proceeded back to what she had been playing with before. As the song was about to end, she stopped what she was doing, crawled over to the toy and started another song before crawling back to what she had been doing. I watched her repeat this for a good five minutes straight, until she was bored with what she was doing and came to crawl on her favorite play gym (me).

I loved seeing this little part of her personality emerging because she is my Zumba baby, so I'm not surprised that she likes to listen to music while she plays.

Mama, I'm a baby hoodlum with a posse!

Hey Mama, why are you laying on the floor like that? You look silly.


Likes
  • Books, but we still have to be careful because we're not out of the paper ripping phase yet.
  • Water in her straw sippy cup, even if 50% of it ends up on her and not in her.
  • Pear and Mango
  • Sitting with Mommy at breakfast time to get bites of oatmeal; probably going to start making her her own oatmeal soon since she likes mine so much!
  • Playing Hide and Seek even if she doesn't know that's the name of the game yet
  • Obsessively staring at the toilet paper on the bathroom counters because she wants to unroll it.
  • Terrorizing Charlie - if Charlie didn't flee from her for the smallest of things, I think she'd be less amused by this
  • Babbling (deg deg deg - maybe dog dog dog?)
  • Standing on her own as evidenced above

Dislikes
  • Having her nails trimmed
  • Having her nose wiped
  • Teething - it's the worst.

Mommy
I added half a day back to my work schedule on Thursdays. I'm not 100% sure how I feel about it yet; I guess I'll have to wait another month and see before I report back.
