I blinked, and my babe hit the 9 month mark. Just like that. You'd think I'd be used to my children growing up right before my eyes, but I'm not. The truth is that I'd like to hold on to this one. I'd like to savor it this time around with the experience of parenting three others under my belt. Sigh.
But this little one is determined to experience it all as quickly as possible. Walking? Almost. She crawls at lightening speed and has no fear cruising the furniture...and lets go. Slow down already!
This girl loves to eat. Yes, she is my child. The only thing she doesn't like is baby food. If we're eating it, she wants it. Avacados are by far her favorite. She also likes mac & cheese, beans & rice, chicken, cheese, yogurt, bananas, just about everything we've given her. Today she was all over my mock garlic mashed potatoes. Yum! Other than the table food, she's still breastfeeding. I've got one healthy little lady. Oh, and she still doesn't have any teeth, but that doesn't deter her one bit.
Our biggest challenge right now is getting her older brother & sister to leave her alone. She's not too crazy about being picked up by them, but that's all they want to do. It drives us both crazy! She LOVES when they play with her, but picking her up, not so much.
Of course this doesn't apply to big sis Lily. She's her second mama :)
Oh Ceci, we love you so much!
