Happy 9 months little girl

April 3, 2012

Is it possible she’s really only 3 months away from her first birthday?!

Such personality. Her trademark moments include sitting up on her knees, waving her arms hysterically, squealing as loud as possible while flashing a great big grin and sparkling eyes, and then falling face first into the floor laughing. Yep. She’s a showman.

At a month old, the pediatrician said she would likely demand attention and believe she was indeed the center of the universe. I believe (and have convinced my husband) our job as parents is to reshape our children into realizing they are indeed not the center of all things. I laughed thinking this pediatrician didn’t really know us well. All kids are this way. Well. Jokes on me. This girl is DETERMINED to keep her position at the center. Anyone know how to shape a 9 month old into not screaming when she’s happy OR frustrated? The noise level in our house is often pretty great.

Thumb is almost always in her mouth. She prefers to use her crocheted blanket when she sleeps so she can poke her fingers through its holes and have a fist full of blanket. Thankfully, Gramma Lissa is working on a lighter-weight blanket for these oh so hot summer months. Today, Clare was happy driving me crazy by pulling on the “photo shoot” blanket. Silly girl!! She thinks its funny!

Michael spends most of his day entertaining her and interacting with her. They are two peas in a pod. She watches him all the time. He loves it. They are buddies for sure. That boy of ours continues to be Mr. Showman, but his younger sister is not going to be outdone…such a tease! She’ll throw something on the floor, look up at him sheepishly and belly laugh as if to say, “Ha. I’ve got him. I know he’s going to pick it up for me. Let’s play my game.” They both belly laugh. Clare cause she’s got him now. Michael cause he realizes he has been “got” and it makes him happy hearing her laugh with him. It’s among his greatest delights…to make her laugh. Siblings are the best!!

*Disclaimer: Avert your eyes at the 34 second mark. This girl is a spitter. Video editing tutorials aren’t in my time frame today. Sorry. You’ve been warned!

It’s now two weeks after this video (taken over St. Patrick’s Day) and she’s getting braver. She can now pull up and stand and let go for a brief few seconds. She’s also cruising and starting to “reach” for things. Seems she “could” be walking before long.

    So made my day seeing little Clare and Mikey interacting. So funny! I still have a smile on my face. What a beautiful little girl Clare is. She is such a joy and God has blessed us all by having her here with us.
    Look forward to a time I can meet and hold her and tell her how much I love her!
    Thank you for always sharing your family with us! I love you..A.Linny xoxoxox
