As long in the world as in utero….

Claudia is 9 months old now and we are starting to see her personality emerging more and more.  It is so interesting to watch how she “figures things out” in comparison with how Edison did things at this age/stage.  Our playroom/office/organ room has one step to get into the kitchen and I remember Edison cautiously trying to figure out how to get up that step (without getting hurt) so he could get into the kitchen.  Claudia, on the other hand, saw Edison in the kitchen a few days ago while she was with me in the playroom and she grunted, hurtled her body up into the kitchen, turned around to grin at me and quickly crawled to where Edison was sitting so she could start pulling on the leg of  his jeans.  To her the step was no obstacle.

Here she is with the two objects that have fascinated her most in the last few days…Baby Einstein?  No.  Fisher Price?  No.  Educational thing-a-ma-jigs?  No.   A piece of green paper shaped like an E (she carried this around for about an hour.  Then she tried to eat it.  The E did not survive the attack), and a lint roller.

  1. She is so stinkin’ cute, Kristin. Somehow you manage to keep your daughter clean and tidy looking… Liesl is such a dirt ball all the time – just this morning she fell on her face in the driveway and now has some major scratches on her face – did she cry? Hardly. Anyways, I’m glad Claudia isn’t thrown off by the steps of life either. It’s fun to have girls that can body-hurl without hesitation.

    I stopped here to leave a comment and Jodie stole the words from my mouth! Your daughter is adorable, and I love how you find ways to accessorize a 9 month old! Head-bands, hats, tights! Oh how I love the things you can do with girls! What a cutie!

    I remember being at your house when Edison was first trying to get up that step to the kitchen 🙂 And they say that girls are the weaker sex??!! Hardly!
