Dear Cecilia: 9 Months Old


Dearest Cecilia,

You are now 3/4 of a year old…. which means I am entering into serious planning mode for your birthday party. It also means that you are growing up quickly. You have become little miss independent. You crawl (finally with your belly off the ground) where ever you want. I get quite a scare when I look down and you are no where around me. You can usually be found crawling down the hallway to your brother’s room or in your room pulling all of the wipes out of the container on the changing table.

This last month brought you your second ear infection and your second tooth. You are proving to be quite the trouble maker. You like to get into everything, climb/crawl on everything, put all things into your mouth, and generally cause terror… in a cute, sweet kind of way. You can stand for a couple of seconds on your own without supporting yourself on anything, which is very exciting and slightly terrifying. We know it is only a matter of time until you are chasing your brother up and down the hallways. You are also pretty good at clapping and waving ‘hi’.

You are still an amazing eater and an amazing sleeper. Mommy and daddy appreciate both greatly! In the last month you have become quite the little dancer and love to bob your body along to almost any song.You continue to delight us in your goofy, sweet demeanor.

I love you to the moon and back,


*Update* At your 9 month check-up you weighed 18lb 4oz (51.5 percentile) and were 27.5inches (45th percentile)
