9 Months

I haven't been very faithful in keeping up with Keziah's monthly updates, but 9 months seemed like a significant milestone.


Keziah is getting into everything these days. I call her "Miss Grabby-Hands" since she will reach for anything within her grasp and pull with all her might. We were at The White Spot on the weekend and the unknowing waitress placed a full cup of ice water on the table in front of her. Keziah reached for it and pulled the entire glass onto her lap. The look on her face was priceless - utter shock and silence followed by a loud and insistent wail. We worked pretty quick to get her out of those wet clothes and into some dry ones. Thankfully the people around us just chuckled and thought it was cute :)

Keziah seems bored with her baby toys these days and is most interested in whatever toys Micah is playing with. And if Micah ever takes any toy away from her she freaks out. So, here come the days of sibling rivalry already... I suppose once she's crawling Micah will have to really watch out! She would also love to get her hands on Micah's snacks. Her baby version of food no longer seems as desirable. This last week she has developed a love for cheerios and spaghetti noodles - still "chewed" with no teeth, I might add...

I was pleased last week when I found some great baby food recipes in a recent Parents magazine. To name a few: broccoli with garlic & olive oil, peas with yogurt & curry powder and sweet potatos spiced up like pumpkin pie. Keziah's been a big fan of these "souped-up" veggies - and it sure beats trying to get her to eat plain broccoli!

Here she is last night at the piano with Auntie Rosanna.


Getting ready for bed - doesn't every baby love being naked? She looks so old to me in this picture. I'm starting to see more little girl-ness in her.


Still not quite crawling but every day she gets a little bit closer. As this collage testifies, she is definitely getting adept at maneuvering around...


That last picture is how these moments usually end - in sheer frustration. Hopefully once she figures this crawling thing out she'll be a happier baby...

And here she is watching Daddy & Micah through the window.


We love you baby girl...

That last picture is precious. I kept wishing Kyra would crawl too -
she does the army crawl now but gets into everything:) At least she's happier that she can move on her own.

She is soooo cute!! Her eyes are soooo blue. The remind me of my girls! Your story reminded me of Brooklyn when she started pulling her self up on furniture. But Brooklyn pulled over our fish tank rather than a glass!!! But her reaction was the same!! LOL!! Silly girls!
