Holy moly, I cannot believe CeCe is already 9-months-old! She is growing like a weed and changing every day. Preparations are already under way for a joint birthday party for my two lovely ladies in April. In just three short months, I'll have a 3-year-old (OMG!) and a 1-year-old (OMG, too!). We celebrated CeCe's first plane ride and Christmas, complete with snow!
We went to the pediatrician for CeCe's 9-month check up and here are her official stats:
Height: 28 1/2 inches (she's so long!)
Weight: 19 lbs 2 ounces (she's a petite little thing!)
Sleeping Pattern: THANK GOODNESS, CeCe is back to sleeping through the night! She perfected her sleeping habits while our "vacation" in Maryland during the holidays. She goes to bed around 8pm and wakes up around 7:30am. She is still napping twice a day and takes about a two-hour nap in the morning and in the afternoon. This girl loves to sleep!
Eating Pattern: CeCe is still eating every 3-4 hours and takes about 5-ounces of expressed breast milk. We haven't actually nursed in awhile, so I'm EP'ing at the moment and I'm totally okay with that. CeCe is also eating solids for breakfast, lunch and dinner. She can suck down a pouch in no time flat and loves eating puffs and baby mum-mums.
Milestones: CeCe is ALL over the place! She is cruising and climbing on furniture. She is so active and loves to follow me all around the house. This little girl is going to be big trouble because she is into everything (unlike Bella). She pulls things off tables, out of the outlet and even broke a glass pitcher! I have a feeling we are going to be on our toes with this one! She is babbling all the time, with her favorite words being "mama", "dada" and "Bell-a." CeCe still only has the two bottom teeth, but Dr. Hosemann says more teeth should be popping through any day now.
Friends: We've been spending lots of time with Kaylee, Evan, Avery and Connor. Oh, and big sister Bella, too! It's neat to see the girls interacting and playing together. We also reconnected with old friends in Baltimore while we were in town.
Current Events: A terrible tragedy occurred in Newtown, CT before Christmas where a gunman shot and killed students and teachers in an elementary school. The fiscal cliff was avoided and the feds passed a budget to keep our country afloat. It looks like the Mayans were wrong and the world DID NOT end on 12/21/12. The NHL lock-out was resolved and we will have hockey this season! The Ravens are heading to the NFL playoffs again, woohoo!
Happy 9-Month Birthday, Cecilia Rose!
Ian, Kim, Bella & Cecilia
